Curio and display cabinets, entertainment units and bookcases are examples of storage and display units that you will find in many living rooms that can accommodate them. Others include secretaires, ottomans with hinge lis, and cocktail cabinets for drinks and glasses. Entertainment units are frequently installed as a wall unit, offering space for any wide flat screen TV, games consoles, speakers and various other things such as a hi-fi system as well as an iPod speaker and dock unit. It is necessary that you deal with the essentials first before looking at the decorative or non-essential items, when choosing your living room furniture. There seems little reason for purchasing a beautiful entertainment unit, then finding you have no room for your preferred seating. Sectionals can often make best use of only a little space, but fundamentally you must decide what seating you require and then work around that.
