modern tv stand black – At first you may think choosing a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it is just once you start searching, that you realise how enormous the options are. Various colours, a few made of glass, some wood, a few metallic or a mix, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential because the stand must be large enough, but not so large that it dwarfs your TV and looks too large. Stands are usually quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a certain size. This means you shouldn’t put a TV on it that’s larger than that which is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs that are slightly smaller.
Tip: Check your TV measurements and compare this to the stand, particularly the width. It will look odd if the TV overhangs the border, and it might not be safe. If you believe you might upgrade to a larger TV in the near future, you may want to consider obtaining a stand that’s a bit larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look out of place on a stand that’s way too large for this. Plus a few stands with brackets 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 conventional style box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the main material, and a few might have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you will want to be certain the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these stands your TV is mounted on a bracket, which increases the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re searching for a modern appearance and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name suggests, these stands are for if you set the TV in the corner of the space. The stand looks just like a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you’re tight on space, because you are going to be able to push the stand further in the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are normally made with wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for the same type of timber as your existing furniture, so it fits up and doesn’t look out of place.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you enjoy a specific type of stand but don’t enjoy the kind of wood, it is worth asking if other types of timber are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality stand, start looking for models that are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they are usually hard to tell from actual solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these stands are mainly made of glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass stands come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Even though the hottest stand colour these days is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs will also be available in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colours that will fit in and compliment your room design.
