entertainment center 65 inch tv – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is just once you start looking, which you realise how vast the choices are. Various colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metal or a combination, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential because the rack must be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are usually quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. This means that you should not put a TV on it that is bigger than what is advocated, however you can get away with TVs which are slightly smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV measurements and compare this to the rack, particularly the width. It will look strange if the TV overhangs the border, and it might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you may want to consider getting a stand that is a bit larger than what you want. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is far too big for this. Plus a few racks with mounts will only be suitable for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands often arrive in a more traditional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made from timber as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you will want to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these racks that your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a good option if you’re looking for a modern look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name suggests, these racks are for if you set the TV in the corner of this room. The stand looks the same as a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you are tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack further in 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 good wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for the same sort of timber as your current furniture, so it fits up and does not look strange.
Depending upon the model and make, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a specific style of rack but don’t enjoy the type of wood, it is worth asking whether other types of timber are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models which are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, since they’re usually hard to tell from actual good wood.
Again as its name suggests these racks are primarily made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but need clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Coloured TV Stands
While the most popular stand color nowadays is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also offered in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that will fit in and enhance your room layout.
