corner tv cabinet for flat screens – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s only when you start looking, that you realise how enormous the options are. Various colors, some made of glass, some wood, some metallic or a combination, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
Size of this TV Stand
This is very important because the rack 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 certain size. As a consequence, you should not put a TV on it that is larger than what is recommended, but you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Hint: Check your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, in particular the width. It will seem strange if the TV overhangs the border, and it may not be safe. If you think you may upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you may want to consider getting a stand that is slightly larger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look strange on a stand that is far too large for it. Plus some racks with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would 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 the front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the primary material, and some may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you are going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you will need to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these racks your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV over the stand. This is a good alternative if you’re looking for a contemporary look and is only feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name suggests, these racks are for when you put the TV in the corner of this room. The stand appears just like a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you are tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack farther in the corner and save a couple of much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for the same type of timber as your existing furniture, so it matches up and doesn’t look strange.
Based upon the model and make, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a specific style of rack but don’t enjoy the type of wood, it’s worth asking if other kinds of timber are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, as they’re usually difficult to tell from real solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these racks are mainly made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. Therefore, if you only see a black glass version but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
While the hottest stand color these days 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 colors that’ll fit in and compliment your room layout.
