Take the “mad” out of Basketball Madness

It’s that time of year again when all basketball fans turn to brackets to ponder, assess, strategize and contemplate which team will come out on top.

Last year, more than 23 million people tuned into the Duke/Wisconsin final game, and overall viewership was up nearly nine percent from the previous year for all the games. Whether you’re cheering on a home team or a fan favorite, it’s always a good idea to make sure your family room is ready for a few extra friends to watch the big games.

One thing that can be a problem is being able to see the television from everywhere in the room. If you have a TVLiftCabinet that’s finished on all four sides, and has a swivel bracket, you can control exactly how the television will be displayed so everyone can enjoy the show. The unit I like the most is the Crystal Pointe cabinet.

The component drawers can be reversed so they open from the front or the back (any way you want). And with the 360-degree electric swivel, you can place the unit any where in the room. And when the games are done, you still have a beautiful focal point for your room. Talk about win/win.

Nordic Style? Clear Light and Simple, Well-designed Furnishings. Yes, Please.

What is Nordic style? Scandinavian homes are known for their simplicity, utility and beauty. They have a pure, pared back style that is centered around warm functionality, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. Light is extremely important.  Many Nordic homes feature earthy muted tones, honest materials and minimal ornamentation.

For those who prefer this style, there is a perfect TVLiftCabinet to help you stay true to the Nordic lifestyle. Our Crystal Pointe 360 Swivel Cabinet in weathered white is the perfect addition to a Nordic style. It features a transitional design with hand-carved corner columns, is finished and framed on all four sides, and can be placed anywhere in your home.  You could use it against a wall, as a room divider or at the foot of your bed – and have full access to your flatscreen television and all the electronic gadgets that stay hidden from view.

Protect your new flat screen television with a TVLift Cabinet

Many analysts report that the average household in the USA now has three televisions, and this year that number is expected to grow. Some of the growth is attributed to new technology (quantum dot) that makes the colors on an LCD screen bolder and brighter. Others point to dropping prices as advanced technologies move into the mainstream. A story in the Wall Street Journal earlier this year says that companies are finally cracking the code of making your new televisions work better with all the other technologies in your life. Whatever the reason, there are bound to be thousands of new televisions in households this year – and families everywhere looking for the best way to display that new treasure.

One of the smartest things you can do to protect that new television is to display it beautifully in a TV Lift Cabinet. Not only is it the best way to share your new TV with others in your home at the push of a button, it’s the safest way to have a large screen television in your home when you have children and pets who could be in danger when wall-mounted units fail. The TV lift consoles are made from the finest cherry, mahogany, pine, and oak woods and are handcrafted by Amish artisans. All pop up TV lifts come standard with a remote control, allowing you to hide and reveal your television on your terms, keeping it out-of-reach from sticky fingers. One of the most popular units is Carousel. It comes in many different finishes and can be customized for your home décor.  And there are hundreds of other options to truly make your new television shine. Check ‘em out at TVLiftCabinet.com.

Fireplaces Are Good For Your Health (and Soul)

What’s better than sitting in front of a glowing fireplace with a warm cup of cocoa and your favorite person in the world? Pretty much nothing (in my humble opinion).

But now researchers from the University of Alabama say that gazing at fire may actually good for our health. The researchers, led by anthropologist Christopher Lynn, asked 226 adults to watch a video of a fireplace, and took their blood pressure before and after watching the video. They also asked participants to report on their experiences of the fire. The researchers found an average of a five percent decrease in blood pressure among participants who watched the fire with sound. The longer they watched the fire, the more relaxed they became. Among control groups who watched the fire with no sound and who viewed an upside-down picture of fire, blood pressure increased. The researchers hypothesized that when we’re sitting fireside, all of our senses become absorbed in the experience.

But what if you don’t have a fireplace and yearn for that soulful experience? No worries. TVLiftCabinet has the perfect answer – the Huntington. An electric fireplace in the front emits a gorgeous warm glow combined with a toasty heater. It operates off a standard wall outlet. At all times, the fireplace remains separated from your television and AV equipment through a partition wall – keeping your television cool and well-ventilated, while you remain cozy and warm.

So this year, you can enjoy all the health and warmth benefits of that glowing fireplace, without any hassle. It’s the perfect addition to your home.

Made in USA Matters

Consumer Reports National Research Center recently reported that given a choice between a product made in the United States and an identical one made abroad, 78 percent of Americans would rather buy the USA product. The survey noted that people want to keep American manufacturing strong and are often concerned about the quality of products made outside the USA.
