Most people designate a wall for a desk and TV storage in their living space, but sometimes ideas for storage fall short. There are many different possibilities for effective storage so choosing a system that fits your needs and living space may take time to decide. To start, figure out where a desk and TV storage unit will work best, which style you prefer and what you're willing to spend.


Installing a durable and functional shelving system is a great way to store desk and TV items. Platinum tracks work best because they are strong enough to hold shelves that house books and trophies, for example. Using shelves made from melamine with these tracks are strong and sturdy and ideal for long-term use. If you use this system for every day computer and TV use, be sure both devices fit properly on the shelves and that they do not hang over any edges. Using flat screen computer monitors and TVs are recommended for this type of storage system.


Cabinet storage typically offers the option of installing a door to hide items when not in use. Full-height cabinets offer a large amount of desk and TV storage space whereas smaller cabinets potentially showcase a suspended look instead of a traditional cabinet look. The doors to the cabinet can be used as canvases for a mural or even decorated with a fabric pattern. A pull-out surface can also be installed into cabinet storage devices for desk use.


Bookcase storage is versatile and is available in various sizes and colours. A deep and sturdy bookcase can adequately hold a flat screen TV and any components for it. Bookcases can also accent an existing desk and TV area that provide as many or as little shelving space for necessary storage. To avoid dusting, purchase bookcases with glass doors or drawer space. Purchasing built-in style bookcases are the best solution but only if it correctly fits in the desired area.

Combination Storage

Units with combination storage are tailored for consumers who use laptops for primary computer use because the first row of shelves in combination units can hang fairly low. A desktop computer can be used for any storage device as long as the dimensions of the monitor and computer do not interfere with any built-in shelf space. Look for combination storage devices that have bookcases, drawers and sliding drawers for optimal storage and function.
