modern tv stand black – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it is only once you start looking, that you realise how vast the options are. Various colours, some made from glass, some wood, some metallic or a combination, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential because the stand has to be large enough, but not so large that it dwarfs your TV and looks too large. Stands are often quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a certain size. This means you should not put a TV on it that’s bigger than what is advocated, however you can get away with TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: Check your TV measurements and compare this to the stand, particularly the width. It will seem odd if the TV overhangs the edge, and it might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you may want to think about obtaining a stand that is slightly 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 some racks with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These types of stands often arrive in a more traditional 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 are going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you will want 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 good option if you’re looking for a modern appearance and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As the name suggests, these racks are for if you set the TV in the corner of the room. The stand appears just like 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 have the ability to push the stand further into the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for exactly the exact same type of wood as your existing furniture, so that it matches up and does not look strange.
Depending upon the model and make, TV stands can arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you like a particular type of stand but don’t like the type of wood, it is worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality stand, start looking for models that are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, since they are usually difficult to tell from actual solid wood.
Again as the name suggests these racks are mainly made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. Therefore, if you only find a black glass version but need clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the most popular stand colour these days is black, you will 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 colours that’ll fit in and compliment your room layout.
