low entertainment center – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s just when you start looking, that you realise how enormous the options are. Various colors, a few made of glass, some wood, a few metal or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential because 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 appropriate for TVs up to a certain size. This means that you should not put a TV on it that is larger than what is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: 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 might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a larger TV in the near future, you may wish to think about obtaining a stand that is a bit larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will appear strange on a stand that is far too large for it. Plus a few racks with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs in a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These types of stands frequently arrive in a more traditional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on the front. Many TV cabinets are also usually made of timber as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll want to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
With these racks that your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a good alternative if you’re looking for a modern look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name suggests, these racks are for if you put the TV in the corner of this space. The stand looks the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so that it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner racks are great if you’re tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack further in the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not good wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for the same type of timber as your existing furniture, so that it fits up and doesn’t look strange.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you enjoy a particular type of rack but do not enjoy the kind of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of timber are available (contact us here). If you’d like a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, as they are usually difficult to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these racks are mainly made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Many glass racks come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Even though the hottest stand color these days is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that’ll fit in and compliment your room design.
