What are entertainment units? If you thought TV stands, you are wrong. While one of the main purposes of an entertainment unit is to hold the TV, it does more than just that. Generally larger than your basic TV unit, an entertainment unit is an integrated piece of furniture. It accommodates electronics such as TV and sound systems, decor, storage and basically, anything that you want in your living room. If you are contemplating TV wall decoration then start by adding one of these to your buying list.

They will serve as the focal point of any modern living room. And it is the most versatile piece of furniture to have when you entertain a lot of guests. To help you out, we have covered the various styles and included an extensive gallery of entertainment units from Livspace homes. Our curated list follows:     

What are the kinds of entertainment units?

Classic Stand-alone Units

Pair stand-alone units with wall shelves for added display space

Remember the old TV stands with a shelf for newspapers and DVD players, desis? A stand-alone entertainment unit is like that but is way larger, has several storage units, serving many other purposes in terms of style and functionality. Though movable and aesthetically pleasing, this kind of unit is slowly losing popularity as it consumes a lot of floor space.  

Wall Units

A combination of several components, wall units are fixed to an internal wall. With several open shelves and deep cabinets, wall units are the most lavish of the three kinds. If you have a wall niche, this type of entertainment unit can sit perfectly without taking up much of your floor space.
