When picturing your home try to think about one of the most frequently used pieces of technology for everyday relaxation. It’s the TV, of course, and TV units can combine storage and comfort.

It is them we use to place a TV so we can keep up with current affairs and to switch off after a long day.

When it comes to making the area practical and comfortable, we come to think of installing a stand for your television to change the room to suit our aesthetics and lifestyle.

Before diving into the overall look of TV units, look at the inspiration on this page so that you know what you can expect from your end result. It will help you understand what sort of shelving you need and how many cupboards or pull out drawers will be necessary.

What makes custom made TV units great?

  • The cabinet is built exactly to your requirements, and fitted perfectly in your space.
  • The shelving and presses are designed to compliment the design of your room, adding style and practicality.
  • You get flexibility and attention to detail that you can only find in bespoke furniture.
  • Working with an Interior Designer opens up new options for creating something that's right for your home.

If you’ve ever designed a piece of storage furniture such as a walk in wardrobe you’ll know how important it is to think of the layout of the storage first.

For example, if you want to maximize the use of the space by having your children play in the same room as you watching the TV, you’ll need to address the storage area for the toys inside of the TV unit.

A TV is most commonly positioned on a feature wall of the room which means that it is the first thing you will see when entering it. Let’s explore how TV units can combine aesthetics and functionality based on your room layout and its purpose.

We make our clients happy!

We are extremely happy with the service provided from start to finish. Derek, Alan, Vanessa and Declan were very thorough and accomodating with all our requirements and provided an extremely professional service. It was a delight to work with Vanessa. She is an extremely good designed and very accomodating. We have plans to get a few more things done and I will definitely be going back to Custom Made in the near future.


I am delighted with the service received from Custom Made! They designed and built an alcove unit and two built-in wardrobes for me, and in each case I was delighted with the difference they made to the rooms: they feel brighter and more spacious now. The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


Custom made previously provided stunning alcove cabinets for our new home. This year we gave them the difficult job of exactly replicating those units after we had extensive flood damage to our home. Vanessa and the team did an amazing job and now our sitting room feels just like home again. It was a pleasure to deal with custom made throughout the whole process from design to installation. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautifully finished custom carpentry.


We cannot recommend Custom Made enough! From the moment I first spoke with Vanessa their attention to detail was incredible. Derek dropped in to discuss our requirements and measured up, then we received emailed drawings of our units for our approval. Eoin, their cabinet installer, was an absolute gentleman, very polite and professional. We are delighted with our finished cabinets!

Thomas & Martina

We are thrilled with the quality of work and customer service we received from Custom Made. They designed and built a big kitchen unit and a desk that fit our needs perfectly. We asked for the unit to match the colour and design of our kitchen and they did it to perfection. The installation team were neat and efficient, and were happy to make any changes we requested. We cannot recommend Custom Made highly enough.


I found the team very professional and helpful throughout. In particular, Vanessa was fantastic to deal with — and the main reason we went with Custom Made in the first place. The end product (built in shelving units and floating shelves) was spot on. Couldn't be happier and would highly recommend.


We couldn’t recommend Custom Made highly enough. They were very professional and reasonably priced. We are delighted with our built in wardrobes, alcove units, floating shelves and kitchen. Vanessa worked with us at every stage from initial call-out to installation to make sure we were happy with everything and any late changes were very kindly accommodated. We will definitely use Custom Made again and recommend them to friends and family!

We recently engaged Custom Made to design and install fitted wardrobes, hallway storage, alcove storage and a TV unit in our home. From the initial emails to meeting the designers and fitters, we were very happy with the service. We felt our ideas and requests were really taken on board during the design stage; no question or request was too trivial for Vanessa. The team who worked in our home, from the fitters, apprentices and delivery men were incredibly helpful, professional and hard-working.


Delighted that we selected Custom Made to work on our new furniture. Thanks to their invaluable help at the design stage (thank you so much Vanessa!) we can enjoy our bespoke furniture which we absolutely love. It has been a great experience from the design stage to installation; they are very professional, the quality of work is second to none and they are such a pleasure to deal with. We have a few more rooms to fill and will definitely use Custom Made's services again.


Custom Made are a very professional outfit! They made and installed a walk in wardrobe with revolving floor to ceiling shoe racks for us as per our design and we absolutely LOVE IT. Many many thanks to Vanessa (best of luck in your new home!), she was extremely helpful and patient, always in good humour while dealing with us, such a lovely person to deal with. Thank you!


Simply brilliant to work with. We went with Custom Made because of their strong reviews — So glad we did! Vanessa designed the pieces and worked with me to adjust the designs until they were perfect, being super-responsive and patient all the way through. She kept us up to date about installation dates, and the team arrived on the date promised. The result is delightful - we're so happy with the two units! Highly recommend them!


We installed alcove units with floating shelves in our living room and were delighted with the finished product. Our house is old so it wasn't a straight forward job but the team did an outstanding job fitting the units to such a high standard on the day. Vanessa is fantastic to work with. She was prompt with answers to any questions we had and was happy to help with every step of the process. I would happily use Custom Made again for work in our house.


We had wardrobes built by Custom Made recently and couldn't be happier with them. We had some ideas but Vanessa's suggestions were invaluable, they were also flexible about what we wanted to do unlike some other companies we had approached. The team were great and we are delighted with the finished product. Highly recommend!

Sitting Room TV Unit Ideas

Small living rooms are one of the most challenging spaces to furnish. The challenge lies in how to make a small area comfortable, relaxing, inspiring and practical. Let’s explore the easiest living room furniture ideas that you can implement to make your life easier.

Firstly you’ve got to understand that clutter is not allowed in a small room! This is why you need well thought out TV units. The best option in this particular situation is to work with a designer. They will help you with the outside aesthetics and the layout of the storage space inside of it.

When it comes to living room furniture ideas think about using light colours for the furniture in small places proves to be the easiest way to make the space look visually bigger. Sometimes dark colours can also have an expanding visual effect. However, they are trickier to choose for a small room, so get advice from an experienced designer before you do that.

Lastly, to achieve a clutter free living room the idea is to brighten up the space and make sure that your windows have a plain design with lots of natural light coming into the room. Try choosing light curtains over blackouts.

Bedroom TV Units

If you are looking to incorporate a TV unit into your main bedroom, you can use any of the typical sitting room TV unit designs and adapt them to include your wardrobes.

Most TV cabinet designs have open shelving on the left and right, which in a bedroom you can replace with built in wardrobes. Behind your wardrobe doors you will have all the space you need for clothes, bed sheets, extra pillows and additional storage.

A typical design would have a dresser unit in the middle, with a floating smart TV fixed to the back panel and the cables hidden behind it. On either side of it will be your wardrobes, which can extend from one side of the wall to the other.

There are many popular designs right now and it all depends on what you like. We can build your bedroom or living room TV unit with plain, handleless, or shaker style doors, which are highly sought after at the moment. If you are looking for a unique touch, we can make doors with custom patterns and you can have a look at the range of wardrobe doors that we can provide on Fronts.ie.

Mirrors and reflective surfaces in a small room help to make it look bigger and brighter. Everything that has an ability to bounce the light back into the room will help it seem visually brighter. You’ll also notice that shiny surfaces have a tendency to make the place look clean, sleek and modern.

TV Stands for Storage

Let’s talk about kids. Did you ever notice that whenever you spend quality time watching TV with your family, kids aren’t the most patient participants in this activity. If you want to watch the show that you want, kids need to be occupied with something else. One of the best ways to entertain them while watching TV is to design a play area in the same room and you will most definitely need extra TV stands for storage.

Create open storage in your tv stands for your kids to store their toys away. Think of all those times in toy shops when your child is begging you to buy a toy. The only thing you’re thinking about in that moment is that they already have at least 5 duplicates of the same thing at home. This is because kids need to see their toys in order for them to use them.

To make sure kids can see their toys you can install open storage or baskets underneath floating TV units. Floating units are becoming more popular because they suit both large and small spaces. The fact that a floating unit is not touching the floor, it automatically makes the place look bigger.

This is where the baskets for the toys come into play. A floating unit is an amazing solution for when the kids grow out of their toys. You don’t have to rearrange your storage, you can just remove the baskets from underneath the units or repurpose them for other nick naks. Furniture that is easily convertible to suit a family’s lifestyle will be worth the investment to last a lifetime.
