30 inch tv stand – Initially you might think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s only when you start looking, which you realise how enormous the choices are. Different colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metal or a combination, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential because the rack has to be big enough, but not too big that it dwarfs your TV and seems too big. Stands are usually quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. This means you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s bigger than what is advocated, but you can eliminate TVs which are marginally smaller.
Hint: Check your TV dimensions and compare that to the rack, particularly the width. It will seem odd if the TV overhangs the border, and it might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a bigger TV in the not too distant future, you might wish to consider getting a stand that is a bit bigger than what you want. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will appear strange on a stand that is far too big for it. Plus a few racks with mounts will only be suitable for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These types of stands frequently arrive in a more traditional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on the front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made from wood as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to put your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you’ll want to be certain the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these racks your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a modern appearance and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name suggests, these racks are for when you put the TV in the corner of this room. The stand looks the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you’re tight on space, because you’ll have the ability to push the rack farther into the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for exactly the exact same type of wood as your current furniture, so it matches up and does not look strange.
Based upon the make and model, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you like a particular type of rack but don’t like the type of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you want a better quality rack, look for models which are created with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they’re usually difficult to tell from real solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these racks are primarily made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass racks come with either black or clear glass shelves. Therefore, if you only find a black glass variation but want clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand colour nowadays is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also offered in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that will fit in and compliment your room design.
