Need help for a TV entertainment unit or a credenza?
June 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi , please help me decide what is the best design for an entertainment unit that will be placed along the wall, size in length and materials to use. I am planning to use a plank of wood similar to the wall panels as the top, the reddish in color. It is hard wood , I am not sure If I need to paint the cabinets in white or have the same type of wood because of the wall panels. I have a bay window seat painted in white along the other side. floor is tiled in cream color. Could anyone please suggest what design? Thank you

i suggest you paint them white..its better to keep the wall texture different from those of the furniture used

Black with wood top and shelves. White would contrast too much with your components that go inside.21"-24" high, no deeper than necessary, maybe 9"-12", and as long as possible, 12" from door and wall.

Thank you Amy for the pictures. Fred S , are you thinking of a unit with furniture legs or just on the floor. I am planning to place the TV unit on top instead of on the wall . Thanks .

With a tile floor, I think either on the floor or tall legs like half the total height. If it was wood planks running underneath, baseboard height would have worked. I am picturing long and lean to mimic the wall, but putting the tv on top kind of breaks that up too much. Plus, that might be too low for the tv.
