bayside tv stand – Initially you might think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is only once you start searching, which you realise how enormous the options are. Various colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metal or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important because the rack has to be large enough, but not too large that it dwarfs your TV and looks too large. Stands are often quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. As a consequence, you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s bigger than that which is advocated, but you can get away with TVs which are slightly smaller.
Hint: Check your TV measurements and compare that to the rack, particularly the width. It will look odd if the TV overhangs the border, and it may not be safe. If you believe you may upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you might want to consider getting a stand that’s a bit larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will look out of place on a stand that’s way too large for this. Plus a few racks with brackets will only be suitable for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand to Be?
These kinds of stands often arrive in a more conventional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made from wood as the main material, and a few may have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cupboard, you will want to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
With these racks that your TV is mounted on a bracket, which increases the TV over the stand. This is a great option if you’re searching for a modern appearance and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name implies, these racks are for when you set the TV in the corner of the room. The stand appears just like 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 in the corner and spare a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for the same type of wood as your current furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look out of place.
Depending upon the make and model, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you enjoy a particular type of rack but don’t enjoy the kind of wood, it is worth asking whether other kinds of wood are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality rack, look for models which are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they’re usually hard to tell from actual good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as the name implies these racks are primarily made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass racks come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you only see a black glass version but want clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand color nowadays is black, you will also find them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs will also be offered in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colors that’ll fit in and enhance your room layout.
