If the built in is meant as an entertainment center, be sure the TV area is big enough for future expansion in the size of the TV. Nothing like sizing the cabinet for your current TV and then not being able to go bigger ever because the built in can t fit anything bigger. Calculate the physical size of the largest TV you could see yourself owning and go with that. Also, be sure cabinets meant for components/game systems have a way to get air in and out. Those things generate a lot of heat. I d put ventilation holes or even a big cut away along the red line to let air out of the lower cabinets.

Thats a good tip! I never considered vent holes for the electronics. We actually don’t have any electronics (no cable tv, no dvd player) We have a modem and router (which will be set up on the shelf) and everything else is digital (Netflix, Plex, Hulu, etc). I should probably plan it out though so future home owners have a place to put their electronics…..

My TV is 75” which is about the biggest you’d want in this room. So I think that size hole will satisfy all future TVs
