corner tv stand with mount – Initially you might think choosing a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it is just once you begin looking, that you realise how vast the options are. Different colors, some made from glass, some wood, some metal or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential because the stand must be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are often quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. As a consequence, that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that is larger than that which is advocated, but you can get away with TVs that are marginally smaller.
Hint: Check your TV dimensions and compare this to the stand, particularly the width. It will look strange if the TV overhangs the border, and it may not be safe. If you believe you may upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you might want to think about getting a stand that’s slightly larger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your existing TV will look strange on a stand that’s way too big for this. Plus some stands with mounts will only be suitable for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands frequently come in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made from wood as the main material, and some may have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you’ll need to be certain that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
With these stands your TV is mounted on a bracket, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a good option if you’re looking for a modern appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name suggests, these stands are for when you set the TV in the corner of the room. The stand appears the same as a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, because you are going to have the ability to push the stand further 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 solid wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for exactly the same type of wood as your existing furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Depending upon the model and make, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a specific type of stand but do not like the type of wood, it is worth asking whether other kinds of wood are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality stand, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, as they are usually difficult to tell from real solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these stands are primarily 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 is always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Even though the hottest stand color these days is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more modern designs will also be offered in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that’ll fit in and enhance your room layout.
