Space, style, functionality and quality. These are the main factors to pay attention to when choosing furniture and design in line with one’s needs. There is also a special focus on the selection of materials, which determines the character – refined, modern, minimal, country –with which the home is presented.
Four key words, one project: the one you use to give shape to your furnishing ideas
Space: the first step in choosing a TV cabinet is to measure the dimensions not only of the TV set, but also of the wall to be furnished. It is important to ensure that the furniture is not too large or too small in relation to the available space. If, for example, space in the room is limited, it would be better to choose a more compact piece of furniture to optimise the area. Last but not least, it is essential to envisage the height of the TV cabinet to ensure comfortable viewing of the screen.
Style: Considering the general style of your home is necessary in order to buy a piece of furniture in harmony with your current furnishing choices. If your home has a modern décor, you could opt for a TV cabinet with a minimalist design, featuring clean lines and geometric shapes. If, on the other hand, the house is characterised by a more classic or rustic style, one could choose a piece of furniture with curved details.
Also not to be underestimated is personal taste, which influences the choice of purchase: for those who are passionate about technology for example, the best choice may turn out to be a cabinet with integrated functionality, such as USB ports or HDMI connections.
Functionality: Once space and style have been reconciled, attention must be paid to the practical and functional side of the TV cabinet. Do you live in an attic? In this case, the optimal solution is a low TV cabinet that visually expands the boundaries of the house. Would you like to have a TV in your bedroom instead? If a wall unit seems a more suitable choice for the living area, you can opt for a concealed TV cabinet that disappears behind a sliding, hinged or motorised panel.
Quality: A good piece of furniture is distinguished by the choice of materials and the workmanship involved, which, if it is executed, transforms an object into a true architectural element. Choosing a high-quality TV cabinet can therefore be a strategic choice to elevate the style – and timeless beauty – of your home.
