Selecting entertainment center furniture can be more complicated than selecting living room or dining room furniture. With most pieces, it simply involves setting aside sufficient floor space to fit everything, along with a little extra room to allow people to move around it comfortably. Entertainment center furniture, on the other hand, needs not only enough floor space for the piece itself, but also the stability to support the television and any other entertainment components.
Naturally, that means ensuring that the TV will fit comfortably in its allotted space. But it also means measuring the space between the home entertainment center and any seats or couches where viewers will sit. Generally speaking, it should be two to three times the diagonal width of the TV, which is enough space to ensure a quality viewing experience. People who sit too close may notice pixelation and other flaws in the image, especially if they are viewing a plasma screen or high definition (HD) TV.
Most entertainment center furniture includes shelves for DVD players, stereo systems and similar media components. Not only should buyers measure them to make sure their components will fit, but they should also include extra space to ensure that the machines are properly ventilated. Similarly, it pays to disperse each component evenly throughout the home entertainment center rather than stacking them into the same shelf where they might overheat.
