The television has earned a coveted position and has become the focal point in most living rooms, elevating it to being more than just a means of holding its viewers captive. In the interior design of living rooms and media rooms across the globe, often, the television is the centre point around which all other elements revolve. The design of the TV unit can vary according to one's needs. The choice of colours, size and utility of the set largely depend on the aesthetics and spatial orientation of the living room. Smaller apartments tend to have space constraints, which is why homeowners often pick units that do not compromise the value added to the room. This ideabook explores a variety of TV unit designs that are perfect for small apartments.

1. TV unit with built-in storage

Built-in storage is an essential element in modern housing. You can incorporate a TV unit into a storage wall. It is considered the most optimal solution, particularly for smaller spaces. The storage wall can either offer open shelving or a row of cabinets, which can be used to conceal elements that you don't want to display, such as cables and other wires.

2. A wall-mounted TV unit

A TV wall niche is a great design solution, particularly for contemporary and sleek living rooms that do not require additional storage. It is a beautiful way to keep the flow of the smooth walls and floors seamless. A neutral backdrop is ideal for mounting the TV, while complementary elements and accessories can be used to create a holistic appearance.

3. A TV unit that plays with textures

TV units in wood usher in textural and visual contrast without clashing with the neutral colour scheme that is typical to a modern living space. They bring a certain charm and cosiness to urban interiors that primarily adhere to a modern or minimalist theme. Open shelved TV units are often an excellent choice for smaller spaces, and they can be used as display units as well.

4. Contemporary and classy TV units

A sleek TV cabinet in the living room is an ideal fit for contemporary living rooms where there is no room for excess. It is easy to incorporate into the existing space and takes up almost no square footage. Wall-mounted TV units have been the trend for quite some time now and are often coupled with LED lights for a modern look.

5. Minimalist TV unit

Areas of the house that are cut off due to inadequate space can very well be turned in to a minimalist media room. For a cosy setup, a simple seating area with the TV mounted on the wall should do the trick. An all-white ensemble is complemented with a wooden floor, while decorative cushions on the floor provide fun and casual seating.

6. A TV unit for the attic or basement

The attic or basement is usually treated as a room for storage in most homes, but if cleverly designed, it can very well serve as a living room or media centre complete with a TV. The low lying ceiling can be accentuated with the choice of white paint to create the illusion of height and perhaps a chandelier to draw attention. A TV unit embedded within the wall would be the ideal choice as it saves space.

7. An illuminated wall mounted TV unit

A wooden wall panel for mounting the TV is perfect for homes where space is a matter of concern. Make use of an illuminated frame to make the room seem bigger than it is and look to a light-toned false ceiling to create the illusion of height in the room. A coffee table, couch and a couple of chairs are all that are required to create an elegant living space that is well organised.

Space needn’t be a constraint when it comes to modern homes as all it takes is a few creative ideas to plan the interiors of a home.
