Custom entertainment centers can creatively transform your entertainment area into a comfortable and clutter-free space. Building a custom wall unit also allows you to accommodate all your electronics including your TV, speakers, and game consoles.
Our custom wall units and entertainment centers offer unique ways to conceal all your TV cables to ensure a clean look. We also provide ample storage for your remotes, extra wires, and smart shelves for CDs and games. In addition to storage, we also offer shelves that can be used to display artwork and novelties.
With a team of experienced designers, carpenters, and installers who go the extra mile to deliver what you expect, we design made-to-measure cabinets that fit flawlessly in your home.
Designing the Right Entertainment Unit
When designing your dream entertainment unit, it’s crucial to understand your storage needs and define your decorating style. The components we include in your custom design should reflect what you store in your entertainment unit. For example, if you plan on displaying your family photos, you want to include open shelves in your design.
To determine your design style, look at the rest of your space as it may already have a distinct style. You can also create a Pinterest board or take a quiz online.
Many different components go into a custom wall unit design including bookshelves, cabinets, drawers, displays, and smart storage.
Bookshelves and Home Theatre System
Shelves act as the quintessential soul of the entertainment unit. Book collectors can organize their collections on the shelves to add a character to the entertainment unit, while movie buffs can install a home theatre system to augment TV audio.
Size is the most important factor in selecting the right cabinet. Our custom cabinets are designed with your desired width, length, and height to maximize space and ensure your belongings fit perfectly.
If you plan on displaying artwork or other decorative pieces in your entertainment space, consider incorporating display shelves in your design. You can either leave the display shelves open or cover them with glass doors to prevent dust accumulation.
Smart storage includes cabinets with built-in storage racks and shelves to help organize and protect your CDs, DVDs, games, and other media. Smart storage is ideal for collectors who want to maintain their collection.
It’s essential to decide on your aesthetic when designing your ideal entertainment space. Some of the most popular design styles include contemporary, traditional, and farmhouse.
A contemporary style wall unit usually consists of minimal storage and display spots. Additionally, the cabinets and drawers have hidden handles to add to the sleek design. In terms of color, the wall unit is usually made from neutral colors such as white, grey, or black.
A traditional style wall unit has ample display spaces, typically on either side of the TV. This is for displaying books and other decorative pieces. It also has abundant drawer storage space. Regarding color, dark wood color is often used to add a rich and antique look to the space.
The farmhouse-style entertainment unit uses prominent textures and colors to add a rustic charm to your space. This style of entertainment unit typically incorporates different types and darker shades of material and handles and iconic barn door styles – the most popular combination being wood painted white.
Your design options are endless, when it comes to creating a custom entertainment unit. Here are a few design ideas to consider.
Enhance the coziness of your entertainment space by adding a built-in fireplace. This feature is especially useful during colder seasons and kills two birds with one stone.
Transform your entertainment unit into an at-home theatre by adding built-in LED lights behind your TV. Lighting can also be added to your open shelves to illuminate the items at display.
Glass doors are a great way to showcase your valuables while protecting them from dust particles. You can also opt for frosted glass if you like glass but want to keep your stored items hidden.

Choosing the Right Material
Solid hardwood doors in maple, oak, or cherry are commonly used for stained doors where the wood grain’s natural beauty is enhanced and protected by a professionally applied finish. Wood doors are strong and durable, and scratches or dents can be repaired with sanding and a coat of matching stain.
Stained wood doors are a great choice for homeowners wanting classic-looking cabinetry that shows off both the beauty and the sturdiness of hardwood doors.
MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard is a manufactured wood product that combines wood fibers with wax and resin. MDF is denser than hardwood and offers a much smoother finish with no graining. This makes MDF an ideal material for making painted cabinet doors. Due to its density and consistent structure, MDF can be machined using high-speed CNC cutting tools. These tools help create a variety of different 3-D profiles which are perfect for cabinet doors.
MDF, as a material, is not waterproof. However, by painting its surface, MDF becomes highly water-resistant which makes it ideal for high humidity places like bathrooms or kitchens. It’s also a favorite for cottages as its durability helps keep it intact during the hot and humid summers.
Acrylic is a non-toxic finish that gives a perfectly smooth texture and a high-gloss appearance to your space. Acrylic doors are made by applying sheets of acrylic over medium-density fiberboard (MDF), covering it with a protective layer, and sealing at the edges.
This high-quality synthetic material comes in a perfect mirror-like finish that’s shatter and chip resistant. Available in a wide range of colors, acrylic finish gives a resplendent appearance to your home.
Thermofoil cabinets are cost-effective, easy to care for, and easy to maintain. They are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Thermofoil cabinets are made using a flexible vinyl material that is applied by heating the vinyl and molding it over medium-density fiberboard (MDF).
Thermofoil cabinets are prized as ideal for kitchen or bathroom cabinets because of their superior moisture resistance. Their laminate surface is stain-resistant and easy to clean. The laminate also ensures the cabinet is resistant to chips and cracks, even in high humidity environments.
