Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

3 Ways To Decorate An Entertainment Center

One of the best ways to make your entertainment center appear stylish would be to decorate the unit based on your style and taste. It does not matter what type of entertainment center that you have, you could use the space above, below, and in between your home theater to make a statement. The following three tips will help you do this.

Think Vertically

Try to fill the vertical space of your entertainment center. For example, use five tall pieces of pottery or a group of three baskets will seem to expand the height of the entertainment center. This effect works well to fill the space below a high ceiling. You could also use an abstract painting right above the wall unit. This adds pattern, color, and a touch of pizzazz as a backdrop for entertainment centers. Keep in mind that the items that you are using to decorate your entertainment center should be small that you don't weigh down your entertainment center.

Pick a Theme

Decide on a theme based on your personality and the decorative items that you want to display. Do you have a favorite color? You may want to select all of your items based on this color. For example, if your favorite color is green and you want to use decorative baskets, pick green baskets and space them tastefully throughout your entertainment center. You may also wish to organize accessories on the ledges of your entertainment center. Pick a theme cherished by a family member and use it to decorate the ledges of your entertainment center.

Create a Decorative Group

Creating decorative groups in your entertainment center will draw attention to them. You may choose to select a theme for each group or use one overall theme for all of the groupings. Create decorative groupings using meaningful items from family members. Get creative and add a seasonal feel to your decorative groupings. For example, during the Thanksgiving season, you may create a decorative grouping of tiny turkeys, which you will place throughout your entertainment center. You may also extend this decorative group beyond the entertainment center for a unifying theme in your décor. For example, a group of sculptures on your entertainment center associated with the subject of a painting creates a thematic display.

These three tips will help you make your entertainment center a showplace. An entertainment center, such as one from Scott L Gerald Custom Cabinetry, is not simply about a sleek sound system. Since you will be looking at the entertainment center, you should also make it visually appealing.
