TV Storage Unit
1. What do you want the unit to do? Obviously you want it to store your TV, but what else does it need to store? What does your current solution do that you need to replicate and what is it missing that you need to have? Consider sky box, amplifier & other AV boxes, playstation, sonos, books, drinks, glasses, vases, photos of the family or any other display items. Measure the above items (in cms) and make a written list.(it may seem like overkill, but if you do this you will end up with a much better solution).

2. A TV unit will be central to your living or entertainment room. Choosing a TV unit that fits your seating and existing decor is important and you may need professional decor advice, so consult an expert. Take a drawing of the room when you are shopping for your tv unit. Use a pen and pencil or some of the available online software or apps that will make a sketch of your room. Measure the room and spaces in international standard measurements like centimeters. Be certain to include the dimensions of freestanding furniture that will remain in the room.
3. Moving your TV / data points is not difficult. Don't automatically assume that you have to position the TV where it has always been because that is where the points are located. If you figure out a better layout / position for the room / TV unit, getting an electrician to move a few points around is really not a big deal. Speak to the in-store designer to get more advice on this. Very often the company supplying your unit will do this for you at a small charge.
4.You can find your ideal tv unit no matter what your budget. Set yourself an affordable price range within which you can comfortably make a purchase. The next step is to do a little homework. Spend some time shopping online and compare prices, noting the styles you like and where to find the unit you like. Can you afford it? What can you compromise on or change or the size to get closest to your desired design?

5. Take lots of photos of the room where the unit will be placed. Take a video too. Don't just take photos of the wall or corner where the unit will go - be sure to get a complete 360 of the room.
6. Save time by looking online before heading out - look at online customer reviews of the shops you are thinking of visiting - there are many shops that have fantastic reviews - aim to see those first. Avoid those shops that suppress or don't encourage customer reviews. Obviously also avoid those that have poor reviews!
7. Create a folder and save some images in it. Try https://www.pinterest.co.uk/ - type in "TV wall units" and save some of the images that you like the look of. That will help you find your solution quicker when you get to store.
8. Plan your hunt - make a list of stores that you want to visit - speak to the store beforehand to understand their price points to ensure they are aligned with your budget range. You need to see as many units as possible when making this decision - find out how many units the shop has on display before adding it to your visit list. Anything over 10 displays is usually a good start
9. Make sure the store has a design team available to help you design your unit. Take your photos, lists, room sketch and (Pinterest) saved images with you to help the in-store designer.
10. Take time to think. If you can get rid of distractions - the kids, social media, watching TV...and spend some time carefully considering what you expect of your unit? Is it going to be fixed, built-in or moveable? What style will complement your current interior design?
