built-in or furniture for TV

14 years ago

We are building a home and have an alcove where a tv entertainment center should be. It's about 1 foot too small for my current 2 bookcases and TV cabinet( Don't even ask!) I really don't have much else in the way of componets other than DVD player( BOSE 3-2-1)and cable box. The current cabinet will stick out too much, I think. Current TV is 37" and about 10 years old. It is the focal point in the room with the fireplace to the right and cornered.

Here's my question. Should I have the trim guy build out a cabinet and maybe two shelves above it or should I purchase furniture. This assumes I purchase a 42" flat screen. The house interior is simple and quiet. Not much movement in the design. The traditional entertainment center look will not work for our style for our style. It is the focal point (along with large windows along another wall) with the FP to the left and cornered.
