Media Consoles: The Hottest Home Decor Innovation for 2012 (Slideshow)


They’re stylish. They’re space-saving. Media consoles are the must-have home décor innovation for 2012.

Media consoles do triple duty:

  1. They store media components
  2. They have a reinforced shelf on top for a wide screen TV
  3. They include a built-in electric fireplace


You can find a media console to complement any style of home décor – they come in traditional, transitional, and contemporary designs. Several models allow you to choose a finish. Common finishes include oak, walnut, mocha, espresso, natural, matte black, black satin, or stainless steel.

Firebox Options

The built-in electric firebox comes equipped with either a traditional log set or a contemporary glass ember bed – several models allow you to customize which type of firebox display you prefer.


While the typical media console is the horizontal (landscape) design, several are configured to fit in corners (perfect for a bedroom or condo living room).

All media consoles feature generous storage compartments, cabinet space, and shelving so you can neatly store (or hide) your collection of remotes, media components, speakers and DVDs.

They also come equipped with a heavy duty surface for housing your television – the platforms on some models support TVs of up to 60 inches.
