Updating an Entertainment Center: What you need to know!

In October of 2012 some friends of ours decided to buy a house in Boise. They walked into this house and instantly fell in love with its unique features and beautiful views. However, one thing they did not fall in love with was the outdated built-in entertainment center. It was made for an old tube television that was very deep and not very wide. This is becoming more common as our TV’s are getting larger and we are not updating the built-in features. Some homeowners go as far as filling it with décor so it’s not an eyesore. Sweetwood Custom Cabinets feels that updating your built-in features is a necessity to modernize your home and keep it contemporary. At you can see some great examples of how to beautifully modernize your home by updating built in entertainment centers.

Updating your entertainment center doesn’t have to be scary; we can walk you through the process and talk about our custom projects. We can show you the entertainment center you have been dreaming of. We can also provide the option of additional storage as well as display shelves to give your living room that modern touch you’ve been wanting. We can help you make it functional and interesting. Visual artist, Andrew Wyeth said “It’s all in how you arrange the thing… the careful balance of the design is the motion.”

As the years pass, we have to think width vs depth. Nowadays, depth not as important as it was 15 years ago when our televisions had larger backs to them and weighed a ton, now our televisions are wider but far thinner. Then you also have to pose the question of “do we even need a space for a television or do we want an open space and beautiful custom cabinetry to fill space?” Now this all comes down to personal taste! How long you plan on owning your home? What is important to you?


Not only is updating your space going to make your house more appealing potential buyers but it’s also going to lift your spirit and make the current space feel fresh and clean. Check out our blog on investing in your home with custom cabinets.
