Entertainment units, like any other kind of furniture, come in a variety of styles. While each one has their individual preference when it comes to decor, sleek contemporary designs are ruling the roost at the moment. These trending modern TV unit design ideas are typically characterised by clean lines and uncluttered structure.
The following is a curated list from Livspace homes. Some of these are bound to catch your fancy and fire your imagination.
Modern TV Unit Design #1: Wooden Laminate With White Cabinets
Sleek, classy and glamorous, this TV unit has all the elements of a showstopper. The backlit panel makes this minimal entertainment unit stand out.
Modern TV Unit Design #2: Partitioning the Room
This TV unit serves two purposes: the first is that of an entertainment unit, and the second is as a partition. Such TV units can be used to segregate the living and dining areas.

This TV unit with crisp and clean lines is a copybook example of contemporary furniture. We are particularly enthralled by how the speakers have been mounted on this unit for uniform sound distribution.

A back panel and a compact base unit comprise this sleek and utilitarian TV unit. Moreover, the zig-zag patterned tiles of the side panel highlight its monochrome magic.

Love whites? Go for the whole hog with white furnishings. TV units in white may tend to look a little flat, so add some wooden tones to keep things interesting.

What Kind of Wood is Best 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 entertainment unit.
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.
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
The finish and colour of your TV unit will depend on the room decor. If you want a warm, homely ambience, opt for a wooden finish and soft colours.
For a more modern and contemporary feel, high-end, glossy finishes and monochromatic colours will work well.
Your TV unit design should suit your lifestyle and personality. Whether you want something minimal, rustic or urban-chic – it should ultimately fit in well with the rest of your home interior design.
