Ideas to Organise and Decorate Your Entertainment Unit

According to TVtechenology.com, 80% of households worldwide own at least one TV set. We use TVs not only watching free-to-air TV programs but also paid services like Netflix, watching YouTube clips, and browsing the Internet.

If you own a TV, chances are you also have a sound system and perhaps a PlayStation.  So, you might have multiple cords housed in your TV unit, resembling a bird’s nest. I can see you nodding.  Here, I am going to show you how to be organised and style your TV unit.

Own Less Devices

You can control your smart TV with your smart phone via TV remote control apps. Simple.

Get rid of your DVD player.

Use Decorative Baskets to Hide Cords

Not just any baskets. You need baskets with cut-out handles, so you wont see all the cords going into the basket, reducing visual clutter. Please avoid plastic ones please because you are not organising your pantry.

Make sure the cut-out bit is big enough to pass plugs through and fit all the cords. Natural materials such as sea-grass and rattan are great, providing a layer of texture to your room.

Hide Your Remote Controls

Have you ever seen any interior photos with remote controls on coffee tables? No, never. Simply because it’s not stylish at all.

If you’re not tech savvy, like myself, or if you don’t want another App to clutter your phone, you can hide your remove controls in a box or place them on the bottom shelf of your coffee table, so you don’t have to see them all the time.

Organise Cords with Smaller Baskets and Code Them

For your phone chargers and other chargers, get small baskets with dividers and ensure they are deep enough to accommodate your chargers.

Tag all your cords with decorative sticky tapes and use a permanent marker to write names. So, you can easily find what you need.

How to Decorate?

Basically, just treat it as a small bookshelf , with books, decorative bowls, art and statement pieces. Avoid using small family photos because when you sit away from your TV unit, you won’t be able to see them.

Don’t forget it is a part of your room, so try to tie in the colours, patterns and shapes in the room.
