Don’t Let Your Gaming System Be an Afterthought

Oftentimes, gaming systems are an after-thought and they end up having to be taken in and out of the entertainment center for use. In a perfect world, it would get picked up after each use and tucked back away, but in reality it finds a home on the floor along with cords, controllers and misc. gaming accessories. To prevent this common clutter disaster, a flat, Roll-Out Media Shelf is perfect for neatly pulling out and putting away your gaming systems. A convenient Toe-Kick drawer within the media wall can house your assortment of controllers and accessories.
