modern tv stand black – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is just once you begin looking, which you realise how enormous the options are. Different colors, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important because the rack has to 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, you should not put a TV on it that’s bigger than what is recommended, however you can get away with TVs which are marginally smaller.
Tip: Check your TV dimensions and compare that to the rack, particularly the width. It will seem odd if the TV overhangs the edge, and it might not be safe. If you believe you might upgrade to a bigger TV in the near future, you may want to consider obtaining a stand that is slightly bigger than what you want. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will look strange on a stand that is far too big for it. Plus a few stands with mounts will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Would You Want the Stand?
These kinds of stands often come in a more traditional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made from wood as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you’ll want to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands your TV is mounted on a mount, which increases the TV over the stand. This is a good option if you’re looking for a contemporary appearance and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name implies, these stands are for when you set the TV in the corner of the room. The stand looks the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so that it matches snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, because you are going to be able to push the rack farther in the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for the exact same sort of wood as your current furniture, so that it fits up and does not look strange.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you like a specific style of rack but don’t like the type of wood, it is worth asking if other kinds of wood are available (contact us here). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models which are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, since they are usually difficult to tell from actual solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as the name implies these stands are primarily made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Many glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but need clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
While the most popular stand colour 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 keep an eye out for colors that’ll fit in and enhance your room layout.
