I have a medium size entertainment center holding a CD player, DVD player, Cassette player, VCR, a 32" TV, Cable/Sat box and receiver. The entertainment center is the typical variety, which has compartments for each component.

The problem is that my living room is not that big and this entertainment center takes up too much space.

So.. I was thinking of some kind of mechanism, which would enable me to "hang" these components on the wall using some kind of shelves.

Any ideas, tips and advice??

Because I have 2 couches in my living room, I too had the Entertainment center dilema...takes up too much space. I purchased a new Center wich is tall and slim.. only 38" wide.

I do know that some home centers carry those tv holders wich hang from the ceiling. You know.. like hospitals use! I can't say I ever seen one that would hold a 32" tv though.

Since you will need at least 20" depth on you shelf holding the tv, it may look best in a corner.

I think wood would be your best bet because you can frame your shelving in to give it that 'built in' look.

Until you figure it out.. let me give you a website you may like that could be of some help with your existing room layout.

This is a great tool for arranging furniture in a room. all you have to do is measure and put the info in. It can save you time, money ( buying something that dont fit ) .. and most of all your back from moving all that furniture!

good luck,
