corner tv cabinet for flat screens – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a simple thing to do, but it’s just when you begin looking, which you realise how enormous the options are. Various colours, a few made of glass, some wood, a few metallic 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 stand must be large enough, but not too large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. Stands are often quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. As a consequence, that you should not put a TV on it that is larger than that which is advocated, however you can eliminate TVs which are marginally smaller.
Hint: Check your TV dimensions and compare this to the stand, particularly the width. It will seem odd if the TV overhangs the edge, and it might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a larger TV in the near future, you may wish to think about obtaining a stand that is a bit larger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will appear out of place on a stand that is far too large for this. Plus a few racks with mounts will only be suitable for TVs in a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands frequently come in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the main material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll need to be certain 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 looking for a modern look and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name implies, these racks are for if you set the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you are tight on space, because you are going to be able to push the stand farther into the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are normally made with wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for the same sort of timber as your existing furniture, so it matches up and does not look out of place.
Based upon the model and make, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you enjoy a specific style of stand but do not enjoy the type of wood, it’s worth asking if other types of timber are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality stand, start looking for models which are created with ‘real’ wood veneers, as they are usually hard to tell from real solid wood.
Again as the name implies 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. So if you just see a black glass version but want clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the most popular stand color these days is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also offered in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that’ll fit in and enhance your room design.
