While some entertainment centers can be on the large side, they certainly do not have to take over your living room. Leave space for seating your guests on those big Game Day gatherings and other events with these ideas for space-conscious entertainment centers that still have plenty of style.

#1: Minimalist Wall Units   

If you like the storage capacity and traditional look of a wall unit entertainment center, you can still get the best of both worlds by choosing a minimalist style. In fact, a wall unit can be great for smaller rooms, since it helps utilize wall space for storage purposes. In general, try to find an entertainment center that uses more vertical space and features a simple, sleek design. Even a minimalist unit, like our Sierra 3 Pc. Entertainment Wall, can become a stylish focal point of your living room.

#2: TV Stands

Smaller entertainment stands are a practical choice for living rooms with limited space. Offering a contemporary look, TV stands often take up less space than wall units while still providing some storage for media and electronics. Look for stands that are 60” wide or smaller so you can preserve your living space as much as possible.

To make your entertainment stand a greater focal point in your living room, consider framing it on either side with shelves or wall décor for an added touch of style.

#3: Fireplace Entertainment Stands

For a dual-purpose entertainment center, consider opting for a fireplace that doubles as a TV stand. This option can deliver warmth when you need it, and provides an intimate glow perfect for entertaining or everyday relaxation. Available in a range of sizes, fireplace entertainment centers offer all the storage and functionality of a traditional TV stand with the charming elegance of simulated fire.

#4: Wall-Mounted HDTV

For a truly minimalist look, a simple wall-mounted flat screen television can give your living area a fresh, modern look. If you need additional space to store your electronics and media, try adding a few rows of stylish wall shelving beneath the TV. This arrangement leaves plenty of room for seating and other furniture so you can enjoy your living room to its fullest potential.

Whether you choose a minimalist stand for your TV, a fireplace entertainment center that exudes warmth, or something in between, each of these ideas is perfect for adding both style and function to a small living room.
