I will add that most TVs that are mounted on the wall are mounted way, way too high. You want eye level (while seated) to the middle or at highest the bottom third of the screen. Hanging it above a fireplace ~6ft off the ground is insanity. It’s like sitting in the front row of a movie theater every time you watch TV.

For your reference, the bottom of my 55” TV ended up right at 28” off the ground (it’s mounted to the wall with a very small console below it), and it’s the perfect height IMO.

Also, a normal sized receiver with things plugged in behind it takes up ~18” of depth. I think you want at least 20” of depth in the cabinets/shelves in the lower section.
