30 inch tv stand – At first you might think picking a TV stand is a simple thing to do, but it’s just when you begin looking, which you realise how vast the choices are. Various colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential because the rack must be large enough, but not so large that it dwarfs your TV and looks too large. Stands are usually quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a particular size. This means you should not put a TV on it that’s larger than what is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs which are slightly smaller.
Hint: Check your TV measurements and compare that to the rack, in particular the width. It will seem strange if the TV overhangs the edge, and it may not be safe. If you think you may upgrade to a bigger TV in the not too distant future, you might want to think about obtaining a stand that is slightly bigger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is far too large for it. Plus a few racks with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands frequently arrive in a more conventional fashion box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made from wood as the primary material, and a few may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to put your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you’ll need to be certain the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these racks that your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great alternative if you’re looking for a contemporary appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name implies, these racks are for when you put the TV in the corner of the room. The stand looks the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you’re tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack further in the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for exactly the exact same type of wood as your current furniture, so it fits up and does not look strange.
Depending on the make and model, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a specific type of rack but do not like the kind of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you want a better quality rack, start looking for models which are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually hard to tell from real good wood.
Again as its name implies these racks are primarily made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Many glass racks come with either black or clear glass shelves. Therefore, if you just find a black glass variation but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand color nowadays is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and red. Some more modern designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colors that will fit in and enhance your room layout.
