Storage Solutions: Television Lift Systems

Believe it or not, having the right storage solutions for your space can make or break your design scheme.

For example, if you are going for a more rustic look in your kitchen, you might have a lot of open shelving that exposes your appliances and dishes. On the other hand, that sort of storage would not fit in a more modern, utilitarian design scheme.

Finding the appropriate storage for large electronics is also a challenge. If you have a designated family/entertainment room, you might have more flexibility in terms of the types of TV storage units and other entertainment options.

However, if you have limited space, finding an appropriate storage solution for your television can be difficult.

For example, let’s say that you have a lot of dinner parties and you use your living room as a conversation space for guests. When you aren’t entertaining, you also use it as a family space for watching television.

When you are having a dinner party, you don’t necessarily want your television taking attention away from the conversation. Also, the television could be sitting on a surface that could be better used for setting up hors d’oeuvres or a small bar area. At the same time, you don’t want to have to take your TV out of storage every time you have family movie night.

One option is to use a TV storage unit that closes, thereby hiding the TV and possibly providing some surface area for entertaining.

One problem with this solution is that it can often take up a lot of space–not good if space is at a premium.

Another solution is the television lift system.

A television lift system is a cabinet that stores your television out of sight. When you want to use the television, you press a button, the top of the cabinet opens, and the television rises into view. When you’re finished, press the button again and the television is safely tucked away inside the cabinet.

The great thing about the lift cabinet is that it keeps everything, including your cords and video components, neatly tucked away. Plus, you have the added bonus of being able to put things on the top of the cabinet, such as snack trays during your next dinner party.

There are several manufacturers who make television lift systems and most of them make systems that match a variety of design schemes.

Television lift systems don’t just work in the public spaces in your home. You can also install a lift system in your bedroom, or even in your designated entertainment space, as a neat and tidy solution to storing and displaying your electronics.

You can also use a lift system when you want to keep your television on display, but you may need to raise or lower it to adjust the viewing angle. Depending on where you’d like to place the lift you may need to look into a custom option like one of the Nexus21 TV lift systems, which come in specialty models to fit your home.

Additionally, you can also use a storage lift system for other purposes beyond storing your television.
