6 surprising reasons why you need a TV lift cabinet in your home

You’ve gotten used to touching on with your phone when you take public transport.

Your car unlocks and starts with the push of a button (and sometimes, not even that).

You don’t even need to use the keypad on your smartphone any more – a simple voice command will do!

With each passing day, it seems like we’re getting closer and closer to that sci-fi vision of the future.

And it isn’t just our appliances, computers, cars and electric standing desk that are becoming more advanced – so too are pieces of furniture!

TV lift cabinets put a futuristic spin on the traditional TV cabinet. So-called “pop up” TV cabinets are quickly growing in popularity bringing that futuristic aesthetic to homes all around the country.

However, the benefits of TV lifts are more than just appearance…

1) Enjoy a child-friendly environment

As a parent, your number one priority is to create a safe and secure place where kids can play and watch television without injury or accident.

That means eliminating problems like:

  • Sharp corners
  • Tripping hazards
  • Falling objects

The good thing about TV lift cabinets is that you don’t have to worry about your TV affecting your child’s safety.

Unlike mounted screens or free-standing TVs on a table or cabinet, TV lifts hide TV screens when not in use.

When you aren’t watching anything, the screen withdraws into the cabinet where it poses no tipping or falling risk to your kids.

Not only that, but it also allows you to hide your television if you wish to limit kids’ screen time!

2) Space-saving measures

Wall-mounted TVs have always been popular among those aiming for a minimalist and clean style in their homes.

However, they aren’t the only option anymore! 

If you’re looking to save space, a pop up TV cabinet might be just what you need to free up space and declutter your living room.

Just hit the button and get your TV to retreat into  its cabinet, leaving you with a clean and uncluttered cabinet.

Enjoy the additional space as your television console now doubles as a coffee table!

3) Pop-up TV cabinets protect your TV from damage

TVs are expensive – damage one, and you could be left hundreds or even thousands of dollars out of pocket for a replacement.

This is especially important if you have kids.

As anyone with kids will tell you, children can be tiny little cyclones of destruction when they play. They’re constantly running, and toys and objects are prone to flying about the place while kids are at play.

By popping up only when in use, TV lift cabinets protect your TV from physical damage.

Not to mention, within your cabinet, your television is protected from damaging UV, and makes it a lot harder for would-be thieves to see – let alone take – your flatscreen.

TV lifts4) Safely place TVs in spots you wouldn’t think of

It would be great to have a TV on your kitchen cabinet so you could put something on in the background while cooking or doing chores, wouldn’t it?

Unfortunately, kitchen grease, steam, and debris ) have a habit of getting absolutely everywhere. In a short period of time, your TV would become obscured by all sorts of mess.

But it doesn’t have to be this way!

Ergomotion doesn’t just offer TV lift cabinets – our high quality TV lifts can be integrated into just about any surface you want, turning it into a hidden TV cabinet!

If you have a custom request, our team can accommodate. That includes TV lifts built into kitchen benches for versatile entertainment.

Our team has even supplied TV lifts for outdoor deckings, spa areas and boats!

With our tough and durable TV lifts, we can put screens into places where a TV wouldn’t survive otherwise, creating bespoke weatherproof solutions depending on your requests.

5) Surprise and “wow” your guests

If you’re looking to impress the in-laws, you can’t go past a pop-up TV cabinet!

Impress your guests and friends whenever you invite them at home and wow them by summoning a TV screen.

You don’t even have to use them for TV screens – our TV lifts have been adapted by homeowners into spice racks and knife holders!

And if you run a business, they’re also a great way of projecting a high-tech image to potential partners, investors and customers too!

Our catalogue includes a variety of lifts in a range of different sizes that can be integrated into just about any desk or surface you can think of.

Whether it’s a screen in a conference room or a cash register, we help you maximise space in your office.


6) It’s super cool

There’s no shame in admitting it!

Having a TV you can summon with the press of a button… it reads like the stuff of science fiction, doesn’t it? Like something you’d see in Star Trek or Blade Runner.

However, they’re not – in fact, they’re something you can put in your home or business today!

If the concept of living in a sci-fi home speaks to you, you’ll want to speak to us.

I would highly recommend this electric desk to all ages, the the best decision I’ve made for my sons study table. The service was excellent, prompt in responses and on time schedule with the delivery time. The removalists were very careful bringing into our study room on the second level.
Very happy with the purchase!!

Amazing e-desk - sturdy, spacious and great quality wood. It fits well into the home office. Assembling it was mostly straightforward with the video! Thanks Guy

I'm only just reading all the Google Reviews now, just before writing this, after having purchased and built a desk; and this is basically going to be saying the same thing as all the others, the owner, Guy, is absolutely great and so are the desks. There's a reason why all the reviews are genuine 5 stars. I had been doing research on numerous sit/stand desks and the manufactures of the frames/motors that go into them. I wanted a good quality and reliable setup so I decided to something that utilised Linak (manufacturer) hardware and so I set out trying to find a sit/stand desk that used them. As I was after something specific, I contacted a number businesses before placing an order so that I understood exactly what it was I was purchasing. Unfortunately most of those other businesses seemed more interested in B2B, and a couple didn't even bother responding. I had even gone so far as to contact a business in Canada, who eagerly could supply everything, but unfortunately not for running on 240v. I almost gave up and was just about to head to Ikea. Then I came across Ergomotion. I shot through an email with some questions about their Edesk, and I got a clear informative response within hours. The owner, Guy, kindly followed up, answered further questions, and was also able to order extra parts from Linak on request. To ensure I had all the information I needed before placing an order, he even went so far as to warn me of a slight upcoming price increase. Guy knows his products, knows it in great detail and has a wealth of helpful knowledge.

Great customer service and desk is exactly as described. Setting it all up was straight forward too. The electric movement up and down is really smooth and quiet - couldn't be happier!

After a very unpleasant and disappointing customer service experience with another desk from one of the more "well-known" commercial standing desk companies, I came across Ergomotion and Guy after extensive research to find a replacement and I am glad turned out this way. Dealing with Guy was an absolute pleasure, he was able to answer all my questions and provide me with a range of customisation options including a solid rubberwood desk top which I decided on after seeing the desk in person. In the end, I ended up with a higher quality desk and look forward to continue using it for years to come. Thanks Guy!

We’ve had an Ergomotion High /Low Desk since 2015, well before standing at a work station was a “Thing” in Australia. It’s been fabulous! It’s reliable, speedy and quiet in its height adjustments. Guy, the business owner, is approachable for after sales service queries. To achieve more posture positions & comfort, we use a 10cm foot stool while standing! Many thanks Guy for the great service… Cheers Avril & Tony (Heidelberg West, formerly Moorabbin)

Before purchasing from Ergomotion, I wondered how a business can actually have a 5.0 star perfect rating on Google. After purchasing an electric standing desk and dealing with Guy, I know how. 1) HIGH QUALITY: The desks from here all use high quality LINAK motors and frames. The desk top that I received was commercial grade laminate from Laminex. 2) GENUINE SERVICE: When I initially wanted a more expensive variant, Guy explained to me the differences and suggested the more affordable variant. 3) CUSTOMISATION: Guy helped me customise the size of the size of my desktop - something no other business offered. 4) CONVENIENCE: For a nominal fee, Guy delivered the desk, FULLY ASSEMBLED. All I did was plug it in. Can't get this level of convenience with any other of the many businesses that offer standing desks. If I buy another standing desk, it will be from Ergomotion.

Amazing customer service and quality product and exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend Ergomotion for their exception product offering and service.

Jake Port 12/03/22

Quality at a reasonable price which is made even better by Guy. You’re made to feel special and nothing is too hard which in this day and age, is honestly hard to come by. Do yourself a favour and support a local family business.
