ikea tv entertainment center – At first you may think choosing a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s just once you begin searching, that you realise how enormous the choices are. Different colors, some made of glass, some wood, some metallic or a combination, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential since the rack must be big enough, but not too 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 you should not put a TV on it that is larger than that which is recommended, however you can get away with TVs that are slightly smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, particularly the width. It will seem strange if the TV overhangs the edge, and it may not be safe. If you think you may upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you may want to consider getting a stand that is slightly larger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is far too big for this. Plus some racks with brackets will only be suitable for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand?
These types of stands frequently come in a more conventional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on the front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made of wood as the main material, and some may have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cupboard, you’ll need to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these racks your TV is mounted on a bracket, which increases the TV over the stand. This is a great alternative if you’re searching for a modern look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name implies, these racks are for when you put the TV in the corner of this space. The stand appears the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you’re tight on space, since you are going to be able to push the rack farther into the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for exactly the exact same sort of wood as your current furniture, so that it matches up and does not look strange.
Based on the make and model, TV stands may come 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’s worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you want a better quality rack, look for models that are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they’re usually difficult to tell from actual solid wood.
Again as the name implies these racks are primarily made of glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Many glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass version but need transparent glass, it’s always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Even though the hottest stand color these days 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.
