floating shelves tv – At first you might think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s just once you begin searching, that you realise how vast the choices are. Various colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metal or a mix, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
Size of this TV Stand
This is very important since the rack has to 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. As a consequence, that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s larger than that which is advocated, but you can eliminate TVs that are slightly smaller.
Hint: Check your TV measurements 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 think you may upgrade to a bigger TV in the near future, you might wish to think about getting a stand that’s slightly bigger than what you need. Not too large though, otherwise your current TV will appear out of place on a stand that’s far too large for this. Plus a few stands with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs in a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands often come 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 may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you are going to put 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 stands your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV over the stand. This is a great alternative if you’re searching for a contemporary appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name implies, these stands are for when you put 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 stands are great if you are tight on space, since you’ll be able to push the rack further in the corner and spare a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for the exact same type of wood as your current furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look out of place.
Depending on the make and model, TV stands may come 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). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, as they’re usually difficult to tell from real solid wood.
Again as its name implies these stands are mainly made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Many glass stands come with either clear or black glass shelves. Therefore, if you just see a black glass variation but need transparent glass, it’s always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand colour nowadays is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and red. Some more modern designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colors that will fit in and enhance your room layout.
