Absolutely not! While it may be true that some of the media items once stored on an entertainment center have been replaced by digital counterparts—DVDs, Blu-rays and CDs to name a few—that doesn’t mean that entertainment stands are no longer useful.
Along with a TV, your remaining electronics can still have a home on an entertainment center. After all, items like your gaming console, internet modem, Bluetooth speakers and virtual home assistant device need a place in your living room or family room too.
An entertainment center also doesn’t need to be limited to electronics. Books, decorations, plants and pictures can all help to fill out an entertainment stand. Plus, an entertainment center with storage can be a strategic choice to reduce the amount of shelving or storage needed elsewhere in a room.
The chunky, ornate TV entertainment centers of decades past are long gone. My sleek and modern options are anything but outdated!
