Many homeowners now have entertainment centers that allow family and friends to socialize and spend quality time together. These entertainment centers can be more than just a room with a TV. They are a place where people can relax and connect.

A notable trend in entertainment centers design is the reduction of clutter. Items are now being stored in cleverly designed, built-in units instead of being displayed on shelves with piles of books and magazines.

  • Wall Units with Built-In Shelves

People like to have a place to display ornaments, photos, and books. Built-in wall units with open shelves give a clean look and allow you to add personal items without adding weight to the space.

  • Modern Metallic Looks

Some people prefer the classic look of wood inlays and carved wood embellishments. However, more people are choosing metallic fittings for their built-in cabinets such as polished chrome or brushed nickel.

  • Decorative Glass

Built-ins can be as stylish and unique as you like. Decorative glass is a great option.

  • Cathedral,
  • Stained,
  • Floral,
  • Swirled,
  • Frosted, and
  • Textured glass creates a unique built-in.
  • Built-in bars and hospitality areas

You don’t have to go back and forth from the kitchen looking for food or beverages. Instead, you can install a custom-built bar or hospitality area. A bar can conceal a refrigerator and hide items like glasses and plates.
