biglots furniture – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is only when you begin searching, which you realise how enormous the choices are. Various colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a combination, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential since the stand must be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are usually quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a particular size. This means that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that is bigger than that which is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs which are marginally smaller.
Tip: Check your TV dimensions and compare that to the stand, in particular 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 may want to consider obtaining a stand that is a bit bigger than what you want. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is far too big for it. Plus a few racks with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs within a certain 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 usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Many TV cabinets are also usually made from timber as the main material, and a few might have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cupboard, you will want to be certain the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these racks your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a good alternative if you’re searching for a modern appearance and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name suggests, these racks are for when you set the TV in the corner of the space. The stand looks the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner racks are great if you are tight on space, since you are going to have the ability to push the stand 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 hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for the exact same sort of timber as your current furniture, so that it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Depending upon the model and make, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a particular type of stand but don’t enjoy the type of wood, it is worth asking if other kinds of timber are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality stand, look for models which are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, as they are usually difficult to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as the name suggests these racks are mainly made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Many 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 since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
While the hottest stand colour these days is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more modern designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that will fit in and enhance your room layout.
