corner tv cabinet for flat screens – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a easy thing to do, but it’s just once you begin looking, that you realise how enormous the choices are. Various colours, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metal or a mix, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is very important because 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 that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s larger than that which is advocated, however you can get away with TVs that are marginally smaller.
Hint: Check your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, particularly the width. It will look 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 may want to consider getting 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 way too big for this. Plus a few stands with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands often 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 wood as the primary material, and a few may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to put your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you will want to be certain that 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 raises the TV over the stand. This is a good option if you’re looking for a contemporary look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name suggests, these stands are for if you put the TV in the corner of this space. The stand appears just like a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner stands are great if you’re tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack farther in the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for the exact same type of wood as your current furniture, so that it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Based on the model and make, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a specific style of rack but don’t enjoy the kind of wood, it’s worth asking if other types of wood are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality rack, start looking for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they’re usually hard to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these stands are mainly made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass stands come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just find a black glass variation but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Even though the hottest stand color nowadays is black, you will also find them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that will fit in and enhance your room layout.
