entertainment center 65 inch tv – Initially you might think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s just when you start searching, that you realise how vast the options are. Various colours, some made from glass, some wood, some metallic or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential since the rack must be big enough, but not too big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are often quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. This means you should not put a TV on it that’s bigger than what is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare that to the rack, in particular the width. It will seem 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 near future, you might want to think about getting a stand that is slightly bigger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is far too big for this. Plus some stands with brackets will only be suitable for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These types of stands frequently come in a more conventional style 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 some may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cupboard, you will need to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these stands that your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great alternative if you’re searching for a contemporary appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As the name implies, these stands are for if you set the TV in the corner of this space. The stand appears just like a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so that it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, since you are going to have the ability to push the rack further into the corner and spare 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 look for exactly the same type of timber as your current furniture, so that it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Based on the make and model, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you like a specific style of rack but don’t like the kind of wood, it’s worth asking if other types of timber are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, since they are usually difficult to tell from actual solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as the name implies these stands are mainly made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Many glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. Therefore, if you just find a black glass version but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand colour these days is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more modern designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colours that will fit in and compliment your room design.
