entertainment centers white – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s just when you begin searching, that you realise how enormous the options are. Different colours, a few made of glass, some wood, a few metallic or a combination, corner stands, 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 large enough, but not too large that it dwarfs your TV and looks too large. Stands are usually quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a certain size. This means you shouldn’t put a TV on it that is larger than what is recommended, but you can get away with TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV dimensions and compare that to the rack, particularly the width. It will look odd if the TV overhangs the edge, and it may not be safe. If you believe you may upgrade to a bigger TV in the not too distant future, you may wish to consider getting a stand that’s a bit bigger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that’s way too large for this. Plus a few stands with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands often arrive in a more traditional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on the front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made of wood as the main material, and a few may have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll need to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
With these stands your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great alternative if you’re searching for a modern appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name implies, these stands are for if you put the TV in the corner of this space. The stand appears just like a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack farther into the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for exactly the exact same type of wood as your current furniture, so that it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Depending upon the make and model, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut 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 kinds of wood are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they’re usually difficult to tell from actual solid wood.
Again as its name implies these stands are mainly made of glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass stands come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass version but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand colour these days is black, you’ll also find 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 enhance your room layout.
