Five questions you should you ask when you’re thinking about adding a television lift for your home.

Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know and sales people at retail stores may be less knowledgeable than they should be about the products they’re selling. We’re ready to answer any questions you may have about TVLiftCabinets. It’s all we do – and we’re happy to help you find the best solution for your home.
Here are five questions we get every day from homeowners – just like you:
Q1) Does the TVLift come with everything I need? Is it easy to set up?
A1) Yes. All of our furniture includes free shipping and in-home placement. We call it our white-glove treatment – which means no worries or hassles for you.
Q2) Will my large flat panel television fit in the cabinet?
A2) Each product has a “maximum television height,” listed. You will be able to select from a wide variety of models that will be the perfect fit for your television – and your home.
Q3) Are television lifts safe?
A3) TV Lifts are very safe. There are built-in pressure sensors to stop the lift and reverse when it hits an obstruction. In many ways, a TVLiftCabinet is safer than wall brackets, which can cause televisions to tilt or fall, which may pose safety issues for those who live in the home. That can’t happen with a TVLiftCabinet. Everything is safe and secure.

Q4) Can I operate my DVD, CD, Cable and satellite boxes from behind the closed cabinet doors?

A4) The unique part of our TV Lift systems is that any piece of equipment that you place in the Infrared compartments can be controlled using your existing remotes from behind closed doors. The infrared system repeats your signal from your remotes inside the cabinet allowing you complete remote control without opening the doors.
Q5) Does the Infrared System require programming?
A5) No. Our system uses high output infrared flashers that locate your equipment without programming.
So – now you know a few more answers, but you may have other questions. Check out some more answers in our FAQ section, or feel free to send us a message and we’ll be happy to respond quickly to your question.

A few tips for taking your flat screen television on the road

Banyan Creek
More and more people are joining the RV movement and traveling the country. According to U.S. News & World Reports, sales of recreational vehicles have increased in recent years as the economy improves. One factor that may be helping to boost sales is the bubble of baby boomers moving into retirement. According to figures from RVIA, the average RV owner is late-middle-aged, but still younger than baby boomers (around 48 years old). They’re also looking for nicer models and a better lifestyle than the typical weekend camping crowd.
TVLiftCabinet recently received a review from John Dreese, who lives full-time in his RV with his wife. In trying to make their RV as homey as possible and make the best use of limited space, they turned to a TVLiftCabinet. “With space limited, having a large screen TV covering a window all the time wasn’t convenient,” said John. “It was easy to install, securely holds the TV in its retracted cabinet – even when bouncing down some rough roads.”
TVLiftCabinet CEO Rob Buehl says more people like John are adding cabinets to their RV because their cabinets have a solid floor, making bolting it to the floor simple.  Some of the most popular styles for RVs have been Banyan Creek, Crystal Pointe, Concord and Prism. Some offer swivels and great features, including additional storage for all your electronics.
Check them out – and discover what RV owners already know. A TVLiftCabinet is a great solution for traveling the open road in style.

Think a television lift is only for the wealthy? Think again.

More than 95% of U.S. households have at least one television set – and more than 50% are flat screen televisions (2013 data). People are investing thousands of dollars in the latest television technologies each year, yet only a few people invest in a quality cabinet to display their investments, thinking that television lift systems are too expensive, too hard to put together or just plain out of their reach.
Yet – displaying those televisions in style is not only within reach, but could be just what you need to add storage and space to your home – and help you protect your technology investment from little fingers, dust and faulty wall brackets. Some of the latest flatscreen televisions weight more than 80 pounds, so securing them to a wall may not be the best option to ensure the safety of people in your home. has a wide variety of TV lift systems for your home – helping you reflect your personal style. Costs range widely – from $1699 to $3999. Most of the cabinets are solid wood, made in the USA and have built-in infrared to ensure that remotes work as they should.  Plus all TVLiftCabinets are factory-direct. Everything comes assembled and ready to go. No hassles and no worries about your television falling off the wall. It’s a smart thing to do – and adds great style to any room.

Protect your Dream Flat Screen TV investment.

So – you’ve invested in your dream flat screen TV. Now – where to put it?

Should you secure it to a wall? There are few places in most homes large enough for today’s flat screens. If you choose to mount it on the wall, be sure your system is secure. The average flat screen weighs 50 pounds – and could easily injure children and adults if it tips over. From 2006 to 2011, more than 100,000 injuries resulted from tipped televisions, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). From 2000 to 2011, 215 people died in accidents involving a falling television: 96 percent were children younger than 10.

Homeowners have many options for wall mounting a television, but beware of recent recalls on some mounting systems. Ergotron recalled more than 200,000 wall mounts at the end of January 2014 due to injury risk.

Some people choose to mount their new televisions above their fireplace. It’s not always the ideal location because the height is often awkward for viewers. Plus it can take years off your TV’s life if you’re not careful. In addition to potential smoke damage, your new plasma or LCD screen usually needs to run at a specific temperature (check manuals for specifics), so you could actually damage the internal components of your television if it gets too hot.

A third option is to consider a television lift system. Not all lift systems are created equal. Look for quality suppliers like that have taken the guesswork out of displaying your flat screen in style. The lift they use is a tray at the bottom of the lift – preventing the television from crashing onto the floor. It’s a simple installation process that guarantees success every time. No measuring necessary. Plus there’s no tipping danger.

Urban Living with Smart and Resourceful Designs

It’s been called the great migration of the 21st century as Generation Y moves from the suburbs to urban developments. They’re seeking smart designs, connectedness with their colleagues, better downtown vibes and to be within walking distance of all things important to them. They also want their high tech lifestyles – the latest smartphones, tablets, Wi-Fi, and huge, flat screen televisions at their fingertips.

But Generation Y isn’t the only group moving into high-end downtown condos and apartments. A new wave of baby boomers are exchanging sprawling homes in the suburbs for the energy and life that urban living provides – without the hassles of endless chores. A recent Wall Street Journal article explored what it called a “gold rush” of older, moneyed buyers moving into condominium penthouses and luxury town homes.

The common ground between these urban moves is smaller footprints. In New York, the average size of a 2-bed, 2-bath condo is around 850 square feet. In Seattle, the average size is around 647 square feet. Space is definitely a premium, but the benefits of living an urban lifestyle do not mean you have to give up on things that make your life more enjoyable.

The makers of find that many people come to them because wall space can be a problem in urban settings. Often the largest spaces are near or in front of windows, and they don’t want a television permanently mounted in front of their precious lighting source. They also don’t want to downsize their televisions – they’ve gotten used to high definition viewing and there’s no going back. offer the best of both worlds for people who want smart designs – Amish-crafted cabinetry when you’re not watching your favorite program and smart-lift technology that appears on command.

One of the most popular contemporary styles is the Concord, offering tons of space-saving features for electronics, and drawers for storage.

Dovetail Amish Craftsmanship

The Amish are known for a sentiment that if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right. We couldn’t agree more, and that’s why turned to Amish craftsmen in Ohio to create our beautiful cabinetry. One word comes to mind when our customers view their work: stunning.

We work with a small group of Amish craftsmen throughout Ohio’s heartland and are proud to say that

In recent years, woodworking has become a prime contributor to the Amish economy. Amish craftsmen are known for using old-world construction techniques, considerable attention to detail, eco-friendly finishes and running sustainable operations. Living in harmony with their environment is second nature for Amish families. They pass along their time-honored woodworking skills to the next generation, ensuring the quality that is Amish furniture will never diminish.
the majority of our cabinetry is made in the USA.

If you add an Amish TVLiftCabinet to your home, be sure to take care of it. We recommend that you occasionally wipe the surface clean with a damp towel. If you choose to use a polish or cleaner, stay away from ones that contain silicone or wax as it may build up on your finish.

Superbowl Fans, Hoist Your TV Lift Cabinets!

This year, Super Bowl XLVIII is on February 2nd and will feature the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos meeting in New York at MetLife stadium. Of course you’d prefer to be at the game itself, but as football fans, we’ve always felt that relaxing in your perfectly-designed den or lounge is the next best thing. There have been talks of rescheduling the game because of snow and cold weather, so the home-viewing route may start to look far more appealing as the day gets closer.

Is your living room in top shape for the yearly festivities? Whether you’re celebrating a win or lamenting a loss, your lounge, den, or living room needs to be decked out with all of the necessities to make watching the game the great experience that it should be. We always recommend a TV lift cabinet or TV lift to maximize viewing angles, hide your TV when it’s not in use, and just to spice up the décor in your living space. Maybe it’s even time for a new TV (is that old one going to be impressive enough to your buddies?). If so, there’s no better time to upgrade your entertainment furniture with a TV lift. We can accommodate the vast majority of TV sizes, no matter how large, and offer custom cabinets for those.

The Super Bowl is known as an entertainment holiday as well, not just for football fans. The NFL has done tremendous work the last few years to make the experience of watching the Super Bowl fun for the whole family. With the emphasis on entertaining commercials and exciting halftime shows, it’s great to have an entertainment space that accommodates the whole family. The halftime show this year will feature Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, likely in an attempt to draw in a younger audience.  

Whoever you rout for, we are sure they will be impressed and entertained by your new tv lift cabinet!

New Year, New TV Lifts

The new Seagate TV Lift starting at only $1999

The New Year is a great time to make drastic changes in your life. It’s an easily noted marker where you can start resolutions, break old habits, or just try to improve your day­-to­-day life. Some bloggers suggest adding a TV lift cabinet into the equation to improve the strength of their resolutions. For example, adding a TV lift into your exercise room can motivate you to spend more time on the treadmill or elliptical watching TV and getting the exercise you’ve promised.

Others have thrown out the idea that having a foot ­of ­the ­bed lift on a timer will motivate you to go to sleep on time. When the TV turns off and retracts, you know it’s time to go to sleep! Sometimes that extra step will keep you from turning it back on when you know you should be sleeping. Installing a TV lift into your kitchen is also a good way to motivate you to spend more time cooking. This is a great way to save money and eat healthier, but is also a great way to relax. Having a lift will even keep the TV safe when you aren’t using it, protecting it from kitchen hazards like splashing water or grease.

This year, TV Lift Cabinet has released two notable new cabinets: the Addison and the Seagate. The Addison is a modern ­styled cabinet with all of the standard features we pride ourselves on here at It uses horizontal slats to add shadow and depth to the front of the cabinet, creating a striking piece of furniture that also happens to function as a TV lift.

The Seagate has a more classic style, looking like a dresser or cabinet, but includes all of our 
standard features as well. Both of these cabinets would make a great addition to a den or living
room that need a style upgrade, or just to any room in your house that would benefit from having a concealed TV.

Weather you are adding space or convienence to your home, a TV Lift Cabinet will start your year off right! 

Building Your Own TV Lift

360 Degree Swivel Mechanism

There has been an increase over the past few years in the popularity of DIY and home­ designed devices or “hacks,” and home entertainment is often the home of these private innovations. At, we try to offer a TV lift cabinet for every possible implementation or use, but sometimes people just want the bare bones of a TV lift to customize into whatever project they have in mind. For this, we sell bare mechanisms, designed for the minimalist or DIY­er in mind.

Our lifts, just like our TV lift cabinets, are designed to rigorous standards and tested for 20+ years of use and are 100% UL recognized (the gold standard in safety), making sure that your TV won’t take an unfortunate spill. In addition to being extremely safe and easy to operate, our TV lifts are ultra ­quiet (due to a self ­lubricating gear system) and are set up easily with only two bolts. Typical installation is somewhere around 10 minutes. Built in safety features include surge and thermal overload protection. Also, built in sensors keep track of pressure on the mechanism to prevent pinched fingers. We back all of this up with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Over the last decade we have designed and built lift mechanisms for all sorts of different needs, from yachts and motorhomes, to furniture designers that want to include our designs in their products. Architects have even included our lifts in high-end luxury homes.

If you decide that the time or effort commitment necessary to building a cabinet or other design from scratch isn’t something you want to tackle, you can always go with one of our standard TV lift cabinets. We even offer custom designs to match any space or visual theme. If you build your own TV Lift, we’d love to see it!
