modern tv stand black – At first you may think choosing a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s just when you start looking, that you realise how enormous the choices are. Different colours, some made from glass, some wood, some metallic or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential because the rack must be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are often quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a particular size. As a consequence, that you should not put a TV on it that’s bigger than what is advocated, however you can get away with TVs that are slightly smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, particularly the width. It will seem odd if the TV overhangs the border, and it might not be safe. If you believe you might upgrade to a bigger TV in the not too distant future, you may want to think about obtaining a stand that is slightly bigger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will appear out of place on a stand that is far too big for this. Plus some racks with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These types of stands frequently come in a more conventional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made from wood as the primary material, and some might have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll need to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these racks your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a good alternative if you’re looking for a contemporary appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name implies, these racks are for when you put the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears just like a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner racks are great if you’re tight on space, because you are going to have the ability to push the rack further in the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made with wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for exactly the same sort of wood as your current furniture, so that it fits up and does not look out of place.
Depending upon the make and model, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a particular style of rack but do not enjoy the type of wood, it’s worth asking if other types of wood are available (contact us here). If you’d like a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually hard to tell from real solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name implies these racks are mainly made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. Therefore, if you just find a black glass version but need transparent glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Even though the most popular stand colour these days is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also offered in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colours that will fit in and enhance your room design.
