Finding the perfect TV unit and sideboard ensemble is key to creating a functional and inviting entertainment area in your home. With so many options on the market combining style, living room storage solutions, and proportions, deciding what set will best suit your needs and space can be challenging. This comprehensive guide covers what to look for when shopping for the ideal matching TV stand and sideboard combo.

First and foremost, you’ll want to take measurements of the actual dimensions available in your living room. Carefully measure the wall space where you plan to place the perfect TV unit and sideboard ensemble. This allows you to select pieces sized appropriately for the desired room. Be sure to account for any doors, entryways or passages the furniture can’t obstruct when taking measurements, as nothing would be more frustrating than finding your dream set only to realise it blocks room access when it arrives home. 

When deciding on proportions, the scale of the TV stand and sideboard should align aesthetically with the existing dimensions of your space. An oversized media unit can feel imposing and overwhelm the area, while an undersized sideboard next to it may get visually lost, making the space seem disjointed. A general rule of thumb is combining two pieces of complementary sizes, which helps each stand out while still feeling cohesive together as an intentional set.

Function is also a key factor when choosing matching home entertainment furniture for your living room. Do you need ample enclosed storage space in the base cabinets? Or would open shelving units work better for you to display decorative items and electronics neatly? Closed two-door sliding base cabinets provide hidden storage, which can minimise visual clutter if you have lots of extras you want to be tucked out of sight.

How you actually use your living room should directly influence the best design for your needs. For example, if you frequently host game nights where you need quick access to consoles, controllers, and accessories, consider a more comprehensive media unit with lots of open and closed shelving to accommodate everything conveniently. Or if you’ll display vases, framed photos and other decorative elements on top, opt for a unit with a generous surface area up top to highlight these cherished items. 

When choosing materials and finishes, options like timber, glass, or white gloss allow for sleek, contemporary styling suitable for various home décor approaches. Rich timber finishes bring an elegant warmth to a space, while smooth glass appears more modern and crisp. Glossy lacquered finishes offer a bright, polished vibe.

Beyond aesthetics, durability and quality construction are essential investments when selecting the perfect TV unit and sideboard ensemble. Meticulously crafted using solid timber and expert Italian artisanship guarantees stability and long-lasting use. The finest Italian brands stand by their products by using reputable materials that hold up over time, ensuring your entertainment space stays looking like new through countless movie nights and gatherings. The ideal TV and sideboard combination meets your functional needs and brings you joy whenever you relax in your living room. 

By following these simple criteria when selecting your furniture set, you’ll be sure to find the perfect TV unit and sideboard ensemble to create your dream entertainment space.
