Sleek Entertainment Center Design on a Budget

TV Lift in Closed PositionTypically, when it comes to furnishing your home and designing a home theater setup, functionality comes first, and then, if the budget allows, design and style comes second. Oftentimes, this will result in a very functional but bland looking entertainment setup. Why would you want to spend a huge chunk of your time sitting in a room that is purely utilitarian?

Many people see a TV lift or TV cabinet as a luxury for the rich. In actuality, a TV lift or TV lift cabinet can be added to your living space at a relatively low cost. Rather than spending your design budget on something purely decorative, you should try and combine  functionality and design to conserve funds. When not in use, a TV lift cabinet still adds flavor to a room and can act as a temporary shelf. The living room or den can quickly convert from being focused around a television (like most living rooms), into being laid out for entertaining. It is amazing what hiding a TV can do for the ambiance of the room during a party or gathering. Once it’s time to put on a movie or share family photos,  the TV is useable again with the click of a button. With hundreds of designs, you can find the one that will fit your style!

How to Secure Your Flat Panel TV at Home or the Office

TV Lift MountMounting your flat-panel TV on a TV lift or stationary wall mount is a great way to improve the viewing angle for the entire room, as well as keeping your expensive electronics out of the way of kids or pets. Mounting a TV or TV lift is a relatively simple process. In addition to your home, mounting a TV in your office can really add a new layer to employee meetings and breaks.

Typically, a mounting kit will come with two mounting arms and a wide bracket plate. The bracket attaches to the wall and the mounting arms attach to the bracket, securing the TV. Once the TV has been secured to the wall, the chances of an accident or mishap are greatly reduced. We recommend a motorized TV lift to adjust the angle of the screen during use and to keep the television out of the way when not in use. Our lift mechanisms are 100% UL recognized and adhere to all of the corresponding safety standards. Once mounted, the lift will keep the television safe and in a convenient position.

Add Space to Your Bedroom with a TV Lift

With the ubiquity of home electronics in this day and age, most people consider a TV in the bedroom to be a necessity for relaxation after a long day. However, some studies have shown that leaving a TV in your room (especially one with glowing standby lights) is a great way to mess up your circadian rhythms (your sleep patterns). In addition, having a TV in the bedroom can really diminish the amount of space.

Having a well-organized living space or bedroom often means having lots of natural light and minimizing artificial light. Maximizing open space has also been shown to help with mental acuity and stress reduction. So how do you get the best of both worlds? Having a TV in the bedroom is great, but do the benefits outweigh the cost? Many people choose to go with a TV lift or TV cabinet to put away their TV when it is not actively being used. Keeping the lights of an idling TV out of sight from the bed and maximizing the amount of space can really cut down on the downsides of televisions in your bedroom. A foot of the bed TV lift can oftentimes be so low-profile that the amount of space the TV uses is completely negligible.

Add Space to Your Bedroom with a TV Lift

Many bedrooms and living spaces are barely large enough to contain the basic necessities of sleep (such as a bed and dresser), but most people enjoy having a TV in their bedroom for watching in bed. In many cases, people would prefer not to have to switch to a smaller bed just to fit a TV stand in their bedroom. This problem is solved by adding a TV lift cabinet or foot-of-the-bed tv lift. These pieces of furniture can really add depth and openness to a room when the TV is stored and make the process of bringing it out and putting it away as simple as possible.

Though using a TV lift cabinet is a great solution for a small bedroom, even in bedrooms with plenty of space, using a TV lift can enhance the décor of your room by hiding an unsightly TV. Many people with large bedrooms are happy to have a TV there from time to time without having to look at it when it’s not in use. A TV can oftentimes become the focal point of a room inadvertently. Many people prefer to use a TV lift to take the TV out of the decorating equation and keep it out of sight until it is needed.

Since TV lifts come in all sorts of shapes and sizes,  including modern, antique, various woods, etc, it's easy to find one that fits into your current room at the price you need. Add extra space to small rooms or modernize large rooms.

Powering Your Entertainment Center with a TV Lift

In the past 20 years or so, the entertainment center has become the focal point of living rooms and bedrooms everywhere. Though TVs are very functional and are, in many cases, used every day, there isn't a good solution for putting them away when company is over or they are not being used. Many have decided to upgrade their entertainment centers with TV lifts to hide the TV when it is not needed, or even to easily adjust the height of the screen for different viewing angles.

Adding a TV lift to an entertainment center is a great way to maximize space and versatility while also making it easy to adjust the screen when necessary. Many also go an extra step farther and buy a TV lift cabinet to completely hide their TV when it is not in use. Many great choices are available to fit any décor. These pieces of furniture are great for people who only bring their TV out rarely as well as those who use their TVs every day. These cabinets can hide the television screen itself as well as all of the A/V components that are necessary for a great home theater. Some TV lift cabinets even have built in IR sensors so your remote will work on electronics enclosed in a cabinet.
