15 Amazing TV Cabinet Design Ideas That Are Modern and Elegant

What do you look for when shopping for a new TV cabinet?

If you were getting a TV cabinet in the early 2000s, the main requirement was to have enough shelf space to show off your CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disc collection.

Then the iPod MP3 player changed all that. By mid-2005, people stopped buying CDs, and started loading their songs onto their portable players.

The next thing to change was how we watched movies and TV shows. Instead of buying discs, we started storing our video files on portable hard drives, or plugged into our home networks.

Then came video streaming in 2014. Services like iflix allowed us to stream a buffet of movies, cartoons, documentaries, TV shows direct to our smart TVs, making portable hard drives unnecessary.

The TV cabinet continues to evolve

The changes above have caused TV cabinet to change, too. Instead of putting a blu-ray player, DVD player, and Astro set-top-box on your TV cabinet, you could replace it all with a single app on your smart TV.

Our living rooms become neater, too. Having less appliances also means less remote controls all over the couch and coffee table.

As a result, the TV cabinet today is more about style, and less about storage.

The living room is usually the room that sets the interior design style for the rest of the house. So, it’s important to have a stylish TV cabinet design to “anchor” the look of the room.

That’s why most TV cabinet today also incorporate a feature wall and display cabinets. Instead of showing off your ageing hi-fi equipment, you can display your artworks purchased from your travels, or your family photos, or even your Lego collection!
