Entertainment centers keep busy families happy and organized

The living room is one of the most frequently used spaces in the home, especially for families with children. It's a room to play games and watch movies in, as well as one that most homeowners enjoy kicking back in after a long, hard day.

Keeping things neat and organized in the living room can be difficult when there are multiple people using the room for different purposes. To keep the kids' (or husband's) video game consoles off the floor, all of your DVDs organized, and your decor and knick knacks in plain sight, we suggest investing in a great entertainment storage center. Custom cabinet designs are a great way to make the most of your space and keep things organized.

No matter how big or small your living space is, an entertainment center is a good place to store unsightly cables and cords, games, books and DVDs. It can also be a great furniture focal piece. Using a custom cabinet design, you can pick and choose the size, shelving and storage options of your entertainment center that best fit your family's unique interests and needs. Mix and match closed cabinets with open shelving for the ultimate display area.

If you are building the design of your home from scratch or are doing a serious space overhaul, consider having your custom cabinets built into the wall so the storage unit is flush throughout the living area. Not to worry, commitment-phobes: You can still get the same effect with a custom unit that sits against the wall with this option.
