entertainment room furniture – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is only once you begin looking, which you realise how enormous the choices are. Different colours, some made of glass, some wood, some metallic or a mix, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential since the rack must be large enough, but not so large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. Stands are often quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. This means that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that is larger than that which is recommended, but you can eliminate TVs which are slightly smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, in particular the width. It will seem strange if the TV overhangs the edge, and it may not be safe. If you believe you may upgrade to a larger TV in the near future, you may want to consider getting a stand that is a bit larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will look out of place on a stand that is way too large for it. Plus some 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 often come in a more conventional fashion box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the primary material, and some may have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you will want to be certain that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a contemporary appearance and is only feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name implies, these stands are for when you set the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears just like a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, since you are going to be able to push the rack further in the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for the exact same type of timber as your current furniture, so that it fits up and doesn’t look out of place.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you like a particular style of rack but do not like the type of wood, it is worth asking whether other kinds of timber are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality rack, look for models which are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they’re usually hard to tell from actual good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name implies these stands are primarily made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass stands come with either clear or black glass shelves. Therefore, if you only find a black glass variation but want clear glass, it is always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
While the hottest stand colour these days is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more modern designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colours that will fit in and compliment your room layout.
