TV Lifts

Is your home game-ready?

What time is it? It’s time for some football. Whether it’s college, NFL or high school, it’s one of the most anticipated seasons of the year for millions of Americans. And for those who can’t attend the big games in person, there are a million ways to enjoy the game in the comfort of your own backyard. Some people turn their garages into football havens, complete with half barrels, specialty grills and huge flatscreen televisions. Others turn their dens into their own personal tailgate entertaining space. It’s true, your home is your castle and you can tailgate any way you want.

Here are a few things that will help you prep your tailgate space in style.

  • Do you have a space where the television is the focal point in the room? A place where all your guests can see the screen once the game starts? If space is limited, consider adding a TV Lift System Cabinet to your room with a 360-degree swivel, allowing you to adjust the television for the ultimate viewing experience. Choose a model that’s finished on all four sides, like Adagio or Azura, and you can place it anywhere in a room.
  • Where will you put the beverages? Is there space for a small refrigerator or cooler on wheels? It’s always a good idea to have your beverages accessible and cold. There are many inexpensive options to give your guests their favorite cold drink.
  • What about snacks? It’s a good idea to place snacks throughout the tailgate space for the grab and go experience. If you’re offering hot foods, place them in an area that’s out-of-the-way to keep them in a safe zone. And if you have pets, remember to keep things out-of-reach.
  • What about parking? Are there any requirements for your neighborhood that you need to share with your guests? Is there a parking lot nearby where you can provide a shuttle (in your SUV or van) to and from your home? Thinking ahead will lead to fewer problems once the game starts.


So, there you have it – a few tips to help you prepare for the perfect tailgate at home. Enjoy.

Pantone releases fall 2018 color trends

Marisa Spyker recently wrote an article for Coastal Living about the fall color trends for home furnishing design. She says, “As the promise of chilly winter days starts to fade, there’s no question: We’ve got spring on the mind. In the design world, however, things are just heating up for fall.”

Spyker said, according to Pantone, the authority on all things color, bolder and brighter hues are on the horizon for the Fall/Winter 2018 season. And while the predictions primarily focus on fashion, they inevitably influence design in all its forms.”

“The fall/winter 2018 palette continues to show designers expressing the need for individuality, ingenuity and creativity though fashion,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices.”

Add Functionality to Your Furniture with a TV Lift

In many cases, a TV lift cabinet is a matter of aesthetic: if a room has a carefully-selected décor and style, a pop-up TV lift is great to maintain this look. Many people see these cabinets as primarily a style piece, but they are also quite functional.

In addition to the fact that automatically hiding and revealing a TV is a great way to maintain an aesthetic, our cabinets are designed to be functional. With wire management and built-in IR relay systems in many of our models, functionality is a primary goal. Additionally, we offer 360-degree swivel lifts that can adjust to be viewed from any angle with a simple remote control. Several cabinets, including the Crystal Pointe 360 TV lift cabinet have been extremely popular with consumers that need to adjust the angle of their television as well as hiding it away when not in use. Because of the success of our initial swivel cabinets, TV Lift Cabinets has begun introducing new cabinets with a full-swivel option in varying styles and configurations. We encourage you to contact us if you have a particular cabinet that you’d like to see with a swivel option.

Sleek Entertainment Center Design on a Budget

Typically, when it comes to furnishing your home and designing a home theater setup, functionality comes first, and then, if the budget allows, design and style comes second. Oftentimes, this will result in a very functional but bland looking entertainment setup. Why would you want to spend a huge chunk of your time sitting in a room that is purely utilitarian?

Many people see a TV lift or TV cabinet as a luxury for the rich. In actuality, a TV lift or TV lift cabinet can be added to your living space at a relatively low cost. Rather than spending your design budget on something purely decorative, you should try and combine  functionality and design to conserve funds. When not in use, a TV lift cabinet still adds flavor to a room and can act as a temporary shelf. The living room or den can quickly convert from being focused around a television (like most living rooms), into being laid out for entertaining. It is amazing what hiding a TV can do for the ambiance of the room during a party or gathering. Once it’s time to put on a movie or share family photos,  the TV is useable again with the click of a button. With hundreds of designs, you can find the one that will fit your style!

How to Secure Your Flat Panel TV at Home or the Office

Mounting your flat-panel TV on a TV lift or stationary wall mount is a great way to improve the viewing angle for the entire room, as well as keeping your expensive electronics out of the way of kids or pets. Mounting a TV or TV lift is a relatively simple process. In addition to your home, mounting a TV in your office can really add a new layer to employee meetings and breaks.

Typically, a mounting kit will come with two mounting arms and a wide bracket plate. The bracket attaches to the wall and the mounting arms attach to the bracket, securing the TV. Once the TV has been secured to the wall, the chances of an accident or mishap are greatly reduced. We recommend a motorized TV lift to adjust the angle of the screen during use and to keep the television out of the way when not in use. Our lift mechanisms are 100% UL recognized and adhere to all of the corresponding safety standards. Once mounted, the lift will keep the television safe and in a convenient position.
