modern tv stand black – At first you may think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s just when you begin looking, that you realise how enormous the options are. Various colours, some made of glass, some wood, some metallic or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential since the rack has to be large enough, but not too large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. Stands are often quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a certain size. As a consequence, that you shouldn’t put a TV on it that is larger than what is recommended, but you can get away with TVs that are slightly smaller.
Hint: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, in particular the width. It will look 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 wish to think about getting a stand that is slightly larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look strange on a stand that is far too large for this. Plus some racks with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands often come in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on the front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made of timber as the main material, and some may have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cupboard, you’ll want to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
With these racks your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a modern appearance and is just 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 this space. The stand appears just like a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner racks are great if you’re tight on space, since you are going to have the ability to push the rack farther into the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for the same sort of timber as your existing furniture, so it matches up and does not look strange.
Based upon the model and make, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a specific style of rack but do not like the type of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of timber are available (contact us). If you want a better quality rack, look for models that are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they are usually hard to tell from actual solid wood.
Again as its name suggests these racks are primarily made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Lots of glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it’s always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
While the hottest stand colour nowadays is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colours that’ll fit in and compliment your room layout.
