20 Floating Consoles in the Living Room for Media Storage

Most of us would love to watch TV or listen to music while in the living room. This is an enjoyable way to relax while spending time with the family.

That is why most of us would add a media unit in the living area on top of consoles. Isn’t it nice to use a console for your media storage?

Of course, it is! Apart from keeping the wires hidden and the media system organized, it also looks neat. Once you get a beautifully designed console, it adds appeal to the home’s interior.

For sure, you will like how this looks in the living area whatever is your interior style. So, scroll down and check out the living room designs we have collated just for you!
