entertainment center 65 inch tv – Initially you may think choosing a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it is only when you start looking, which you realise how enormous the options are. Different colours, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential because the stand has to be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and seems too big. Stands are usually quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a particular size. This means that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s larger than that which is advocated, however you can get away with TVs which are slightly smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this to the stand, in particular the width. It will look strange if the TV overhangs the border, and it might not be safe. If you believe you might upgrade to a larger TV in the near future, you may want to think about getting a stand that is slightly larger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is way too big for this. Plus a few stands with brackets will only be suitable for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands frequently arrive in a more traditional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made from wood as the main material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you will need to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV over the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a contemporary appearance and is only possible 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 looks just like 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 farther 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 wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for exactly the same sort of wood as your current furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you enjoy a particular type of stand but don’t enjoy the type of wood, it is worth asking whether other kinds of wood are available (contact us). If you want a better quality stand, start looking for models which are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they’re usually hard to tell from actual solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
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. Therefore, if you only see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the most popular stand colour nowadays is black, you will also find them in silver, white and 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 enhance your room design.
