30 inch tv stand – At first you might think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s only once you start searching, that you realise how vast the choices are. Various colors, some made of glass, some wood, some metallic or a combination, corner racks, 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 large enough, but not so large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. Stands are often quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a particular size. As a consequence, you should not put a TV on it that’s bigger than that which is advocated, but you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, in particular the width. It will seem odd 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 wish to think about getting a stand that’s slightly bigger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look strange on a stand that’s way too large for it. Plus some racks with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands frequently arrive in a more conventional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the main material, and some may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you’ll need to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these racks that your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a good option if you’re searching for a contemporary 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 space. The stand appears just like a normal stand out of 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, since you’ll be able to push the rack further into the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for the same sort of timber as your existing furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a specific style of rack but don’t like the type of wood, it’s worth asking if other kinds of timber are available (contact us here). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models that are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, since they’re usually hard to tell from actual solid wood.
Again as its name suggests these racks are primarily made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Many glass racks come with either black or clear glass shelves. Therefore, if you only find a black glass variation but want transparent glass, it’s always worth asking since both versions are often offered.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the most popular 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 enhance your room design.
