30 inch tv stand – Initially you might think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s just once you begin searching, which you realise how vast the options are. Different colors, a few made of glass, some wood, a few metallic or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is very important since the rack has to be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and seems too big. Stands are usually quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a certain size. This means you should not put a TV on it that is larger than what is recommended, but you can get away with TVs which are slightly smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV measurements and compare this to the rack, particularly the width. It will look odd if the TV overhangs the edge, and it might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you might want to consider getting a stand that’s slightly larger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look out of place on a stand that’s way too big for this. Plus a few stands with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands often come in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on the front. Many TV cabinets are also usually made of timber as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you will need to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands that your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a great alternative if you’re searching for a contemporary look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name implies, these stands are for when you set the TV in the corner of this space. The stand looks the same as a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so that it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, since you are going to be able to push the rack farther into the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not good wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for exactly the same sort of timber as your current furniture, so that it fits up and does not look out of place.
Based upon the make and model, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a specific type of rack but don’t like the kind of wood, it’s worth asking whether other kinds of timber are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models which are created with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually difficult to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name implies these stands are primarily made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Many glass stands 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 since both versions are often available.
While the most popular stand colour nowadays is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more modern designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colors that will fit in and enhance your room layout.
