Mission Critical: Arm yourself with proper lift information
As with most product categories the market for TV lift cabinets is fractured. Most lifts are generic in nature and offer questionable quality. On the other hand, there are a few gems available that will look amazing in your home and offer incredible functionality. Armed with these tips you’ll have the right information to choose a lift perfect for your needs.
Where is the mechanism made? What is the warranty?
Be wary of lift mechanisms made outside of the United States. Overseas manufacturing tends to cut corners to lower cost. Many warranties are as little as one year. Worse yet, some manufacturers charge hundreds of dollars to extend the warranty. The value of any overseas warranty should be questioned due to distance, logistics, and language barriers.
The best TV lift mechanisms are manufactured in the United States and backed by long-term warranties. Look for a five-year standard warranty and a company who is easy to contact.
Where is the furniture made? Will it fit my TV? Can I choose my color?
To shave cost, the vast majority of lift cabinets are manufactured in bulk in overseas plants. As with the mechanisms, corners are commonly cut in a constant effort to be cheap. With generic bulk manufacturing you will be limited to pre-determined colors and dimensions. Often furniture looks out of place and does not properly fit the TV or room. These options are very limiting and should be avoided.
TV lift cabinets are a personal and durable purchase. A great system of furniture will last years and years and have a major impact on your room. In fact, the right lift cabinet will not only organize your home entertainment it will seamlessly integrate into your home décor and enhance the beauty of your room.
