Televisions take up a lot of space. Not only are they clunky and somewhat unsightly, they can be difficult to place. Enter hidden TV cabinets. They store your television when you’re not using it, then, with the press of a button, raise your flat screen when it’s time to watch The Bachelor. The nifty furniture trend is taking the world by storm, so we decided to round up the best TV lift cabinets for the end of bed (or for any room) that will fit your style and needs.

TV lift cabinets are great for seniors, those who live in small spaces, or anyone who doesn’t want to deal with the hassle of securing a TV to the wall. They’ll declutter your living space while adding a little magic to your home.

These are the seven best TV lift cabinets we’ve found. Keep scrolling for detailed reviews of each!

How does a TV lift cabinet work?

Hanging a TV requires ample wall space, the right hardware, and a whole lot of faith in your handy relative or contractor. Media consoles are great TV stands, but are pricey and don’t secure your television from the wrath of pets, sugared-up grandkids, and the occasional clumsy houseguest.

Hidden TV lift cabinets are made to solve these problems. When closed, they are attractive, functional cabinets. But with the click of a remote control, up pops your TV!

Their magic is made possible with lift hardware that stores into the back side of the cabinet, and a hinged panel that automatically opens to reveal the hidden TV. Most come with designated space for a sound bar, and attractive storage for your cable box, DVD player, and all the cords that come along with them. Some even pair with your Alexa or Google Assist (like the Brookville XL TV Lift Cabinet), so you can voice-control your TV lift!

Are DIY TV lift cabinets a good idea? 

If you’ve ever scoured the internet for ways to hide your television, you’ve probably seen a slew of Pinterest posts for DIY TV lift cabinets. The idea is to buy motorized lift hardware (like this device from Amazon, $289) and install it inside a standard cabinet or media console.

The problem with making your own hidden TV cabinet is that 1. It’s not an easy furniture DIY. 2. One tiny mistake can end up damaging your TV, and 3. It doesn’t save you that much money in the long run. A TV cabinet (like these from Wayfair) and lift hardware will set you back you hundreds — if not thousands — of dollars, and that’s not including the cost (and stress) of installing the hardware.

The TV lift cabinets below range from $1,500 to $6,000, but include pre-installed hardware, a well-built storage cabinet that is engineered to hold a TV, and built-in technology that allows you to control the TV and cabinet with a remote. Many of the pricier models come completely installed, so you can attach your TV and fire up Netflix in under an hour.

Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite TV lift cabinets for the end of bed or any room that will make your (or your loved one’s) life so much better.
