What a Difference a Flat Screen Makes

What a Difference a Flat Screen Makes

Kelly, who lives in Gurnee, Illinois, has quite the living room. Not only does she have an xBox and a Wii, but she's got an old school, coin-operated, Donkey Kong arcade system! What we love about Kelly's set-up is that even though she's got an arcade game, TV, surround sound speakers, two gaming systems, Tivo, 500 gig storage drive, record player, DVD/CD player, and a ton of vinyl, it looks like there's barely anything in the room.

Now things didn't always look so organized and minimalist...

Before, when all she had was a clunky CRT, things were a bit more in your face. DVDs were out on display, gaming accessories were here and there, and everything was out in the open.

Once she got rid of that TV, a bunch of space was freed up to be made into cabinets that could hide all the necessities of a fun media center. We're impressed with the changes. You?
