Let’s be present this year

For some, the holidays are all about the presents and the parties. Yet as technology progresses, fewer people are fully present for the precious time with important people in their lives. One of my goals for 2015 was to be more present with the people in my life, and it has been more satisfying than I imagined. Here are some things that worked for me:

Stay positive. Stress can take a serious toll on your perspective, especially around the holidays. Keeping a positive attitude goes a long way to reducing stress, and being a more pleasant person to others. If you know that a certain person rubs you the wrong way with their negativity, keep interactions to a minimum. Or, if you must, take a deep breath and count to five – then move on. Life is far too short to let others impact your joy.

Do more things that make you happy. For me, I always enjoy spending quiet time with my family. When we’re all together, watching a favorite holiday movie, playing a board game or just talking, it means so much because I know that time is flying by quickly and each time we get together is more precious than ever.

Turn off the phones. We have a rule in our house that all cell phones need to be turned off during meals. That’s especially true during the holidays when there’s so much competition for our time. It seems like such a simple request, but it’s harder than it sounds, but the benefits are immediate.

So, this year, my wish for you is to be more present with everyone who makes your life better. Perhaps Henry David Thoreau said it best,

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”

Happy holidays from everyone at TVLiftCabinet.

What’s new at TVLiftCabinet? The 360-degree Azura Cabinet!

Just as clothing styles evolve over time, home furnishings continue to improve and change with home décor trends.

TVLiftCabinet is introducing a new cabinet this year, Azura, which features a 360-degree electric swivel TV Lift. The clean design is crafted in the USA out of American hard maple. Hard maple is the state tree of Wisconsin, Vermont, New York and West Virginia and has been a favorite of American furniture makers since the early Colonial days. It’s simply stunning.

azura_black_01The cabinet is fitted with a heavy-duty electric swivel lift that you can operate with a remote (or with manual controls hidden inside the cabinet). You can also control the lift by a built-in ethernet port or third-party controls.

The Azura TV Lift Console can be placed at the foot of the bed, against a wall or free standing because it is finished identically on all four sides. Since it has 360-degree movement, you will be able to view your television wherever you are in the room at any time. Plus – the unit ships fully setup.

TV shopping? Consumer Reports and PC News point you to the right technology

Before

Family Room – Too much Furniture!

As the winter months draw closer, and the daylight savings time ticks down, it’s a good time to take a look and make sure your home is ready for the longer nights to come. One of the things on my list this year is to replace a very old, very heavy, entertainment center and television set that doesn’t appreciate all the new technologies we try to hook into it.

Since we tend to keep our televisions for a couple of decades (seriously, we have one downstairs that allows you to pick 13 channels), I want to make sure we make a wise investment, so the first place I went was Consumer Reports and PC News.

My head is spinning. I had no idea how much the TV market has changed in the past few years. Apparently there are new kinds of screens with organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) panels. Ultra-high definition (UHD or 4K) resolutions are also making waves. And that 50-inch TV that used to cost thousands of dollars is now less than $500. Experts say: time to get a 4K TV!

LED or OLED?

Plasma TVs were the only flat-panel models available when they were first introduced more than a decade ago. They’re now a dead category, so guess my choices are either LED-TVs or the more expensive OLED ones.

Updated Family Room Ideas – New TV with a TV Lift Cabinet

LED TVs are either edge-lit or backlit. OLED displays are drastically different from LED-backlit televisions. They can be much smaller and thinner than LED-lit panels, and produce some of the best black levels possible. Currently, LG is the only television manufacturer that offers OLED models and they are pretty pricey.

So now that I have a better idea of what technology I should look for in my new TV, I want to make sure that the grandchildren don’t experiment with the buttons

(on the remotes or anywhere near the TV). I’m looking at a new to make this TV last as long (or longer) than the other TVs in my home. I’m looking forward to many winter evenings enjoying my new television to add a little ambiance to our den. What do you think?

Smart television in the bathroom? Yes you can!!

A few weeks ago I vacationed at a beautiful resort that featured some wonderful amenities that made me feel especially pampered. Cushy furnishings. Amazingly soft duvet. And believe it or not – a lovely mirrored television in the en-suite bathroom. I honestly never thought I’d want to have a television in the bathroom, but after experiencing it firsthand, I definitely see the benefits.

TV in a Mirror…perfect for any room in the house!

The thing that made it awesome was that it didn’t look like a television – it was a stunning mirror. I’m not a fan of big televisions becoming the focal point of any room, especially the bathroom. But when you disguise the television as a mirror, it feels right. And when I put on my favorite movie and relaxed in a hot tub, I
became a fan.

So where to find a TV mirror? TVLiftCabinet has several TV mirror options (with or without frames) – and sizes from 32 inches to 65 inches. Want to see them in a home setting? Check out this video.

Still have questions? Just contact the people at TVLiftCabinet at 877-377-5435. They’ll help you find just the right TV Mirror – and in no time at all, you’ll enjoy pampering in the luxury of your very own bathroom.

and messing with the television controls just isn’t necessary in a world with automatic cars. Right?

Well, the jury is still out on the auto cars, but if there’s a way to make television viewing easier, I’m all for it (because it makes MY life easier, too). So, if you have a flat screen television and a beautiful entertainment cabinet, you can easily add an electronic lift function to your cabinet with a TV Lift mechanism from TVLiftCabinet.

The company provides uplift motorized TV lift series for furniture companies and individuals who want to convert their cabinets into TVLiftCabinets. The mechanisms are easy to set up. You television snaps into the lift mechanism with two bolts. Check out how woodworker Nick Ferry built his own TV Lift Cabinet using one of these lifts!

Safety is key to the lift mechanisms. Built-in pressure sensors immediately stops movement to protect pinching hands and fingers. No worries about little fingers getting into the wrong place.

Plus the electronics are completely protected. Every lift mechanism comes fully assembles with built-in surge and thermal overload protection. TVLiftCabinet has designed TV lift mechanisms for motor homes, furniture makers, architects, yachts and tiny homes. Now, you can purchase the lift technology that the pros use.
