Here are some of the most important trends to keep in mind as you work with a reputable company such as Closet & Storage Concepts in Philadelphia to construct an entertainment center that will not only meet your needs but also boost your home’s value.

Creating a Bright Atmosphere

Everyone appreciates natural lighting so it is not surprising that one of the top living room trends this year is to create a naturally bright atmosphere. Given this fact, it is important to make sure your new entertainment center does not block natural light from entering the room. If your living room is small, choose white or other light colors to give your room a bright appearance.

The Natural Look

The natural look is also trending this year. Many homeowners are not only adding plants to the living room but also choosing earthy colors such as brown and green for living room furnishings. Yellow and/or orange accessories are frequently added to enhance the natural look.

Hardwood is an ideal choice for anyone who wants to build a custom entertainment system in the living room. It is durable, fits the natural trend and can be painted or stained in any color to suit a homeowner’s tastes. Natural stone is also trending and can be used on a fireplace to give a more natural or rustic style of decor.

Going Minimalist

Minimalist living room styles are popular as many people opt to simplify their lives by decorating the living room in a simple yet classy manner. Black and white living room arrangements are trendy; additionally, many people who opt for this style of decor use metallic accents, shelves, and tables to give the living room a simple yet stylish appeal. Tables with glass table tops are frequently used to complement minimalist decor. Additionally, the tables reflect light which can give the smallest of living rooms a bright appearance.

Going Rustic

The warm, and inviting appearance from rustic design has been growing in popularity over the last few years. Sometimes you will even see it mixed with a natural style of decor as reclaimed wood or wood that looks like it has been reclaimed is often used on doors, display shelves, and furniture.
