A clever idea to save space
The contemporary wall units are often equipped with integrated LED lighting and can even be converted so that they offer several creative solutions for the interior. The latter is particularly typical of the modular wall units, which consist of individual components that can be arranged according to your own taste and needs. There are also models with a variable arrangement of the shelves. In the furniture stores you can find wall units in different designs – from classic wood to elegant steel to the most modern high-gloss surfaces. The mirror and glass fronts, as well as the cabinet doors made of interesting materials with beautiful details are a real eye-catcher in the living room! Mounting on the wall is not always necessary.

We recommend that you coordinate the design of the wall unit with the furnishing style. For a minimalist or Scandinavian interior, the neutral and pastel tones are preferable, but if your living room is designed in a country house style, you can opt for a colorful wall unit in warm shades. The colorful piece of furniture will definitely bring more mood to the interior! The simple and single-colored models with high-gloss surfaces look really elegant and discreet and are the best choice for a modern interior design! On the shelves and in the cabinets you can arrange dishes, glasses, photo albums, social games and decorations. With the right lighting, you can put the objects correctly in the scene. If the wall unit does not have integrated lighting, you can also design it yourself – for example with LED strips. A flat screen television usually fits the wall units with a TV element.
