What Kind of Wood is Best for TV Units?

entertainment-unit-wooden
Use sheesham wood for TV units

Generally speaking, most TV and entertainment units are made of wood. The reason is that wooden units look good with almost all types of interiors. Sheesham wood is considered to be the best type of wood for entertainment units as this type of wood is durable. 

Size Dimensions of a TV Unit

The above list has some amazing TV and entertainment unit options. But a TV unit will never look good if it doesn’t fit the dimensions of your TV. The first step is to measure the size of your TV – the length, width and height. This will help you determine the size of your TV unit.

The next thing you need to consider is the height of the unit. While selecting the TV unit, ensure that it is at such a height that the TV is at eye level with you when you’re sitting. Finally, determine the width of the unit. Always remember here that the TV cannot be wider than the TV unit. So either choose a unit that is exactly the same width or slightly wider than your TV. For instance, if you have a 55 inch TV, the width of your TV unit should at least be 70 inches.

How to Choose a TV Unit?

The TV unit can make or break the look of your room. As such, there are several factors that you need to take into consideration before you select your TV Cabinet Design.

Layout

modern-TV-unit-design-layout
A large TV unit can fit into an open layout

The first thing that you need to consider is the layout of the room. Your TV unit should be in sync with the room layout to ensure aesthetics. In addition, the layout also helps decide the size of the unit.

Size

TV-unit-design-size
Choose the correct size for a seamless look

Ideally, the size of your TV unit should be larger than the size of your TV. Also, the size of the unit will depend upon the size of the room. If you have a small space, then opt for a wall-mounted entertainment unit to save space. 

Material and Colour
