bayside tv stand – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a simple thing to do, but it’s just once you begin looking, that you realise how enormous the options are. Various colours, some made of glass, some wood, some metal or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important because the stand 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 shouldn’t put a TV on it that is larger than that which is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare that to the stand, in particular 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 bigger TV in the not too distant future, you may wish to think about getting a stand that is a bit bigger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will appear out of place on a stand that is far too large for this. Plus some stands with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands frequently arrive in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the primary material, and some might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you’ll need to be certain the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a good alternative if you’re looking for a modern look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name implies, these stands are for if you put the TV in the corner of the 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.
Hint: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, because you’ll have the ability to push the stand farther into the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made with wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for the exact same sort of timber as your current furniture, so that it matches up and does not look out of place.
Based upon the model and make, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you like a particular type of stand but do not like the type of wood, it’s worth asking if other kinds of timber are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality stand, start looking for models that are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they are usually difficult to tell from actual good wood.
Again as its name implies these stands are mainly made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. Therefore, if you just find a black glass variation but want clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
While the hottest stand color nowadays is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that’ll fit in and compliment your room design.
