Get Your Game On

The big game is Sunday. That means your TV is about to become the star of your home. If you’ve been considering a new TV/Media Center, now’s the time to update your look. When choosing the right unit, there are three things to consider:


An old English proverb cautions you to measure twice and cut once. The same advice can apply to buying furniture; measure twice before you fall in love with a specific piece. Before you head to the store, measure the width and height of your wall as well as your television … twice. Nothing is more disheartening than getting something home only to find out it’s too big or too small. You’ll want to maximize your available space and select a piece that fills the area without overwhelming the room.


Next, determine how much shelf space you’ll need for your components – and these days it can be a lot. They can include a DVR, DVD player, Internet TV service box, video game consoles and stereo equipment. Also consider how much room you need to store DVDs, video games or CDs. Will you want to display decorative accents? Be sure you choose a unit that will function for all of your needs.


Finally, know that today’s TV/media centers are designed to do more than just hold your TV; they’re well-built pieces of furniture that coordinate with your home decor. And Art Van Furniture has a piece to fit every style. Take a look at these four options, but be forewarned: they may garner more cheers than the game.
