corner tv stand with mount – At first you may think choosing a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s only when you begin looking, that you realise how enormous the choices are. Different colours, a few made from 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 since the stand has to be large enough, but not too large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. Stands are often quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a particular size. This means you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s larger than that which is advocated, but you can get away with TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV measurements and compare that to the stand, in particular the width. It will look strange 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 wish to consider obtaining a stand that is slightly bigger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look out of place on a stand that is way too large for it. Plus a few racks with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands frequently come in a more conventional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on the front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made from timber as the main material, and a few may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to put 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.
With these racks your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV over the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a modern look and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name suggests, these racks are for if you put the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears the same as a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner racks are great if you are tight on space, since you’ll have the ability to push the stand farther in the corner and save a couple of much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for exactly the exact 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, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a particular style of stand but don’t like the kind of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of timber are available (contact us). If you want a better quality stand, start looking for models that are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, since they’re usually hard to tell from actual solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these racks are primarily made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: 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 since both versions are often available.
Even though the hottest stand colour these days is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that’ll fit in and enhance your room design.
