entertainment centers white – At first you might think choosing a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is only once you begin looking, that you realise how vast the options are. Different colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important because the rack has to be big enough, but not too big that it dwarfs your TV and seems too big. Stands are usually quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a particular size. As a consequence, you should not put a TV on it that is larger than what is advocated, however you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this 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 bigger TV in the near future, you might wish to think about obtaining a stand that’s a bit bigger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your existing TV will appear out of place on a stand that’s way too big for it. Plus a few racks with mounts will only be suitable for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands often arrive in a more traditional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made from wood as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll need to be certain that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these racks that your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a modern look and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name suggests, these racks are for when you set the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears just like a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner racks are great if you are tight on space, because you are going to be able to push the rack further into the corner and save a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for the exact same sort of wood as your existing furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look out of place.
Based upon the make and model, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a specific type of rack but don’t enjoy the kind of wood, it is worth asking if other kinds of wood are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they’re usually difficult to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these racks are mainly made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Many glass racks come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you only find a black glass version but want clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Even though the hottest stand colour nowadays is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs are also offered in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that’ll fit in and compliment your room layout.
