modern tv stand black – At first you might think picking a TV stand is a simple thing to do, but it is only once you begin searching, that you realise how enormous the options are. Various colours, some made from glass, some wood, some metallic or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important since the rack must be large enough, but not so large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. 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 is larger than that which is recommended, however you can eliminate TVs that are slightly smaller.
Hint: Check your TV measurements and compare that to the rack, in particular the width. It will seem odd if the TV overhangs the edge, and it may not be safe. If you believe you may upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you might wish to consider obtaining a stand that is a bit larger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look strange on a stand that is way too large for it. Plus some 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 types of stands often come in a more conventional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on the front. Many TV cabinets are also usually made from timber as the primary material, and some may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you are going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you will want to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
With these stands that 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 only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As the name implies, these stands are for when you set the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears just like a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the trunk, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Hint: Corner stands are great if you’re tight on space, since you’ll be able to push the rack farther in the corner and spare a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not good hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally look for the exact same sort of timber as your existing furniture, so it matches up and does not look strange.
Depending upon the model and make, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a particular style of rack but don’t enjoy the kind of wood, it is worth asking if other types of timber are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality rack, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually difficult to tell from real good wood.
Again as the name implies these stands are primarily made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Hint: Many glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. Therefore, if you only see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it is always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
While the hottest stand color nowadays is black, you will also find them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that’ll fit in and enhance your room design.
