Media Storage

Media Storage + Games

Help build the media area of your teen’s dreams with our sleek solutions to all of your media storage problems. Create a built-in effect with a media set that has space to stash speakers and headphones or decorative items. Alternatively, keep things simple with a sleek simple stand. Most teens benefit from a media stand with added shelves or cabinets that help them stay organized with ample integrated storage. So, what type of media stand is right for your teen? In addition to considering the look of the room and the rest of your teen’s furniture, we recommend evaluating the contenders based on five main criteria, including size, height, storage space, mobility and the design or color.


Before you even start shopping around for a gaming cabinet, take measurements in your teen’s room to avoid buying a media stand that will not fit or one that overcrowds the space. If your teen has a television, measure the width to make sure the media console offers enough table width to hold the television securely. Most consoles feature adequate width to accommodate a flatscreen television with enough space to spare for displaying games and decor or placing a table lamp. The stand should be as wide as the frame of the monitor or the television at a minimum, but you usually get the best appearance when the stand and the screen are in proportion.


Height of the media console is another important consideration, although it is mostly a subjective issue. The general rule of thumb for most media consoles is that the lower third of the television screen should be level with your sight line without having to crane your neck. Avoid getting a stand that will interfere with mirrors or artwork on your teen’s wall. Otherwise, a good way to just whether the height is right is by gauging the height of your teen’s furniture. If your teen’s bed or lounge furniture is high, you should choose a media console that is taller. If the bed or chairs are low to the ground, look for a low gaming cabinet instead.


Storage space is a must have for any teen’s media console. Our gaming consoles feature tidy cabinets that let your teen stash remotes, games, DVDs and other items neatly behind closed doors. Open shelves are ideal for game consoles, cable boxes, DVD players, books and decor. If the gaming cabinet only features open shelves, consider buying a few bins or baskets to help keep smaller items organized.


If your teen like to play games or watch television from different areas of the room, look for a media stand with swivel capabilities. Alternatively, smaller, wheeled game consoles allow your teen to readjust the position for optimal viewing comfort.


Choose a media console that works with the rest of the room’s furniture. From sleek modern lines to traditional styling, our media consoles create a stunning centerpiece in your teen’s room. We offer all of our stands in multiple finishes, from warm wood tones to our signature PBteen white.


Safety is another factor to consider. Because televisions and monitors are typically top heavy, you need to make sure you understand how to mount the television to the media console. Some gaming cabinets require the television be mounted or secured to the back, while others feature an open space for the television on top of the cabinet. Complement the look of one of our media consoles with coordinating bedroom furniture, decorative items, loungers and sofa or plush beanbags designed to wrap your teen in comfort while viewing any type of media.
