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.

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!

 

How to select the perfect TVLiftCabinet

Home entertainment has undergone major transformations in the past decade. Amazon, Hulu and Netflix collectively reach about 100 million subscribers with video content, original TV shows, movies, sporting events and documentaries. Traditional small-screen networks offer even more viewing options via satellite, cable and Wi-Fi.

People watch their favorite shows on smart, super-thin televisions. They listen to sound systems that are plugged into their smart televisions. Media systems are more than just a collection of electronic devices. The furnishings that house these sophisticated electronics are engineered to protect your investment for many years.

TVLiftCabinet can help you pick the perfect unit – each one safely houses your electronic media and makes everything accessible at the push of a button. But how do you choose the right one for your home? You’ll find everything you need on our website, but here are a few things to get you started:

  1.  Set the stage. What is your style? Modern? Classical? Contemporary? There are 75 styles to choose from to help you create a beautiful focal point for your entertainment space.

TVLiftCabinet introduces a new style: Clubside

What do you think when you hear the word, Clubside? For me, it evokes images of those big club chairs in suburban country club settings. Fireplaces. Good bourbon. The scent of Cuban cigars. You get the picture – and if you’re like me, you yearn to bring some of those features into your own home.

We couldn’t agree more. TVLiftCabinet is proud to offer its latest style: Clubside. It combines function, flair and a distinct style. The unit has a clean-cut, urban vibe that’s perfect for today’s contemporary homes that want to add instant charm.

This Clubside lift cabinet reflects two distinct personalities, depending on whether you select a white, espresso or grey finish. The Clubside features two functional doors which 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 TVLiftCabinets, Clubside offers an infrared relay system that allows you to control your electronics without opening the wood doors, and has plenty of storage for your AV equipment.

Check out the units for yourself today and see if this beautiful TVLiftCabinet might be perfect for your home.

Introducing our newest cabinet: the Linton TVLiftCabinet

One of my favorite television shows is House Hunters. I enjoy seeing all the different home styles and furnishings. And while the hunters don’t always agree on what they’re looking for, nine times out of ten, it seems that people want both a traditional design with modern conveniences.

That’s why I’m so excited to share the newest TV Lift System from TVLiftCabinet: the Linton. The crisp, white-finished cabinet offers superior quality with an eco-friendly and scratch-resistant coat. It’s traditional and modern at the same time.

But, there’s more. Large brushed nickel bar pulls highlight the sleekness of the cabinet, while its insightful design is finished on all four sides. That means that you can place the Linton TVLiftCabinet anywhere and everywhere you want in your home for perfect viewing every time. The built-in electronics tray allows for three pieces of electronic equipment to travel seamlessly up and down with your television set. And the best part? It moves in a near-silent fashion.

The new Linton is perfect in any home or office. When in use, it’s provides access to a smartscreen television with accompanying electronics. When it’s not in use, it’s a beautifully styled cabinet, offering the perfect match of traditional and modern styles. Check it out today.
