Entertainment Centers Under $300

Gone are the days of having just a basic wooden TV cabinet acting as the centerpiece of your living room. These days, you can get complete entertainment centers with cabinets, compartments, storage shelves, lighting, and even electric fireplaces that really put out the heat. And they don’t even cost a fortune.

I just spent the last two months completely redecorating my own house. One of the main things I wanted was a new entertainment center that would work, look great, and cost me at most around $300. Here is what I found:

WAMPAT entertainment center with electric fireplace

WAMPAT TV Stand with Electric Fireplace for 80 inch TV$289.99

If you want a fireplace in your entertainment center, it will cost a little more than the non-chimney options, which is why this is the only other one on this list that includes a fireplace. In addition to the fireplace, if you are looking for a TV stand capable of holding some of the largest TVs on the market (up to 80 inches), then the WAMPAT Fireplace TV cabinet is perfect for you.

With its 70-inch-wide build, it’s one of the biggest entertainment centers you can get your hands on in this price range. Its black finish is ideal for all sorts of decorating styles, and the fireplace looks great against it. This fireplace has five brightness settings and two heating modes, capable of producing 750W or 1400W of heat.

If you want an entertainment center that’s packed with storage options, this is the one for you. It has two cabinets in the center with wire mesh doors, then unencumbered storage shelves everywhere else. It’s also open on all sides, so you’ll be able to see whatever decor you place on the shelves no matter where you look at it.

As a gamer myself, I’m a huge fan of all the RGB lighting available these days. My PC uses RGB lighting, I installed light strips behind my old TV and my old TV cabinet even had controllable RGB lighting, so I totally understand the appeal!

This TV stand is designed for TVs up to 70 inches, so you should have no trouble setting up yours. It also includes a large storage container as well as three open shelves so you can keep your game consoles, DVD player or other items right where you need them. Heck, you can even store a VHS player under there, I won’t judge you.

BELLEZE entertainment center with electric fireplace

BELLEZE 60-inch Traditional Entertainment Center with Electric Fireplace, $329.00

BELLEZE TV Stand with 60″ Traditional Electric Fireplace and BELLEZE Multimedia Entertainment Center

$329.00


Since I’m basing this list on much of my own entertainment center research experience, I’ll end with the one I ended up buying myself…even though technically I didn’t live up to my original intent. . Sue me! Ha! You can not !


Two of the main things I wanted in my entertainment center included a natural wood finish and an electric fireplace that looks great and puts out a good amount of heat.

the 60-inch BELLEZE entertainment center with electric fireplace ticked both off my list and pulled the trigger. It’s been over a month since I installed it and I couldn’t be happier! Not only is the overall entertainment center amazing, but the fireplace is significantly better in person than it is online, and it has different levels of heat and brightness.

The company offers this same TV stand in six different colors, so you should have no trouble matching the style of your home. While this might be the most expensive option on this list, if you want a wood finish with a fireplace, I can’t recommend this one enough!
