But first, because I was curious myself between all of these options, let’s do a quick Dictionary review of each term:
What is the difference between a Chest of Drawers, Media Stands, Media Consoles, Entertainment Center?
- Chest of Drawers – Chest of drawers are typically a type of storage with a smaller width. They have smaller sized drawers, making them good for storing smaller, foldable clothing items, candles, or small home decor.
- Media Stand – Media Stands are often fairly large, taking up significant space in a room. If used around under a television, they should be a bit bigger on each side of the tv. Media stands have plenty of storage with shelves, drawers and cabinets. There often is a little cut-out slot in the back to thread television cords through.
- Media Console – Media Consoles are very similar to Media Stands. They typically are a piece of furniture lower to the ground to rest a TV on. It’s lower for eye-level viewing. They can be either be a movable piece of furniture or pushed up against a wall.
- Entertainment Center – An entertainment center is often the largest of the television related furniture pieces. They are meant to house all electronic appliances and components, such as televisions, speakers, gaming devices, controllers, etc. These pieces are often sizable and can even take up an entire wall space.
