Where to Put the TV When You Have Windows and no Wall Space?

It can be a challenge to find the right spot for the television in today’s open-plan homes, condos and rooms, many with floor-to-ceiling windows. Sometimes it means you are covering up a beautiful view. You may have to place the TV against a wall, far from seating in the room, just to be near an electrical power source. For many, it’s a challenge.

Luckily, Pinterest has many ideas to help you place your television in a room with very little wall space and lots of windows. If you look a bit closer, you’ll see that several of the options include TV Lift Cabinets, allowing you to view entertainment on demand, and safely store your TV when it’s not in use. You are able to enjoy both the view and your flatscreen television at the same time.

Some people simply get away from any walls or windows and place the TV in the middle of the room, providing a divider for the room space. Again, many people choose a TV Lift Cabinet that is finished on all four sides, to help them achieve the desired impact in a room. Since all cabinets have multiple storage options, it’s easy to place all electronic components inside the cabinet so all cables and cords are contained. One tip might be to consider a floor-mounted electrical outlet, right under the cabinet. You can easily create an access panel in the bottom of the cabinet to easily access the power source.

So, it is possible to enjoy an open living space with lots of natural light and still enjoy all your entertainment options at the same time.

Where to Put the TV When You Have a Fireplace?

Mounting a TV over the fireplace is very popular in the United States, but it’s not always in the best interest of the electronics. Let’s face it, heat plus electronics is usually a bad idea. Most electronics are adverse to heat – and smoke is often worse (two elements usually found near fireplaces). The same film you find on your inside windows after burning wood in a fireplace also ends up inside any electronics nearby. You may not be able to see it, but it’s there because you can smell it. And as they build up, they can wreak havoc on the sensitive elements inside your flatscreen television.

Most electronic devices simply operate best and most reliably at lower temperatures. Beyond that, excessive heat can cause temperature-sensitive materials to degrade quickly, and conductive materials can even sprout little metal whiskers, causing shorts within the TVs circuitry.

Another concern we hear is that a TV positioned over a fireplace is at an uncomfortable viewing angle. Many TVs mounted over the fireplace will be above eye level when people are seated. Craning your neck into an unnatural position for an extended period of time is going to cause temporary discomfort, but doing so for even short periods of time, day after day, can have lasting effects, like chronic headaches.

One way to protect your TV and still enjoy your fireplace is to consider a TV Lift Cabinet. Many units are finished on all four sides, so you can place them anywhere in a room with a fireplace. Some people use the cabinets as room dividers; others place the units in the corner of a room. The televisions are protected from heat sources and always at the perfect height for people to view entertainment. And, when the televisions aren’t in use, they are safely stored within the cabinet to keep all the electronics safe from particulate sources.

Best TV Lift Cabinets

We enjoy many conversations with our customers. One of the most frequent questions we get is: Which cabinets do people love the most? While we have many wonderful cabinets and finishes available, three styles consistently rise to the top: Adagio, Clubside and Azura. Let’s take a look at why they rise to the top year after year.

The Adagio TV Lift Cabinet is simple-chic at its best – matching one of the most popular furnishing trends out there right now. It’s the perfect mix of durable construction and elegant design to remain current now – and into the future. The Adagio style features solid brass and hand-stamped hardware that bring out the wood grain. It is finished on all four sides, so you can place it anywhere in a room and it will be just perfect, every time. Plus it has great storage options.

The next most popular style is Clubside. Made in the USA, the Clubside TV Lift Cabinet combines function, flair, and amazing attention to detail. This lift cabinet reflects two distinct personalities, depending on whether you select a white, espresso or grey finish. Whichever finish you select, Clubside sets a clean-cut, urban vibe to your home. The Clubside features two functional doors that conceal two hidden electronics bays. The opposite side features simulated doors with the same extra-large brushed nickel hardware and wire access through the base of the cabinet. Like all TV Lift Cabinets, it also has wonderful storage space to help you hide all the electronic gadgets that seem to multiply every year.

Another popular style is Azura. With a 360-degree electric swivel TV Lift, this unit means your guests always have just the right view wherever they are in the room. Its clean design shows off the distinctive beauty of American hard maple. The cabinet is fitted with a heavy-duty electric swivel lift that can be operated via the supplied remote or by using the manual controls hidden inside the cabinet. You can also control the lift via an Ethernet port so you can connect third-party controls, like Alexa. The Azura TV Lift Console also has the option of being placed at the foot of the bed, against the wall, and free standing because it’s finished identically on all 4 sides.

We invite you to check out these three styles – and all the other beautiful units at www.tvliftcabinet.com. Or give us a call at 877-377-5435 and you can talk with one of our expert stylists.

Is Your Man Cave Ready For The 2019 Season?

Late last year Shutterfly came out with 40 Man Cave Ideas and Décor to update your favorite space to catch all the big events.  We thought we’d share some of the ideas and help you spruce up your man cave for all the games and events that will happen throughout 2019 and beyond.

  • Do you have a wooden pallet bar? If not, it adds the perfect touch to a man cave and is easy to put together. No frills, just wooden pallets you can get anywhere. Lots of DIY places to show you how.
  • How about getting a football, basketball or baseball field rug? You can get them online and change your space to match the season.
  • Thought about barnwood shelves? Rustic and sturdy, these shelves are the perfect addition to your man cave, providing the storage you need and the frills you don’t want. Inexpensive and easy to put together.
  • Old beer and hard liquor signage adds character. Visit some local antique stores (or your local liquor store) and look for beverage signs to jazz up your space. Most are inexpensive and easy to find.
  • You’ll find more ideas here.

One thing they forgot to add to make help you make your man cave ready for the New Year is where to place your flat screen television. TVLiftCabinet has a wonderful selection of cabinets that work perfectly in any space and protect your investment from harm. It has great storage spaces for all your electronics and with 360-degree swivels, you can watch it from anywhere in the room.

So have fun making your man cave the perfect place to be for every event in 2019. Cheers!
