entertainment center 65 inch tv – Initially you might think picking a TV stand is a simple thing to do, but it is just when you begin looking, which you realise how vast the options are. Different colours, some made from glass, some wood, some metal or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important since the rack 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 certain size. This means that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s larger than what is recommended, however you can get away with TVs which are slightly smaller.
Hint: Check your TV measurements and compare that to the rack, in particular 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 might want to consider obtaining a stand that’s slightly larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will appear out of place on a stand that’s way too large for it. Plus some stands with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These types of stands frequently come in a more conventional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Many TV cabinets are also usually made from wood as the primary material, and some might have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you’ll want to be certain that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these stands 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 contemporary look and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name implies, these stands are for if you set the TV in the corner of the room. The stand appears just like a normal stand from 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, since you’ll have the ability to push the rack further into the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for exactly the exact same sort of wood as your current furniture, so it fits up and does not look out of place.
Depending upon the model and make, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you enjoy a particular type of rack but do not enjoy the kind of wood, it is worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality rack, start looking for models which are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they’re usually difficult to tell from real good wood.
Again as its name implies these stands are mainly made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it is always worth asking since both versions are often available.
While the most popular stand colour these days is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colours that will fit in and compliment your room layout.
