sauder furniture tv stand – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a simple thing to do, but it’s only once you begin looking, that you realise how vast the choices are. Various colors, some made from glass, some wood, some metal or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list continues.
Size of the TV Stand
This is essential since the stand has to be large enough, but not too large that it dwarfs your TV and seems too large. Stands are usually quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. As a consequence, that you should not put a TV on it that’s larger than that which is recommended, but you can get away with TVs that are slightly smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV measurements and compare that to the stand, in particular the width. It will seem strange 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 wish to consider getting a stand that is slightly bigger than what you want. Not too large though, otherwise your existing TV will look out of place on a stand that is way too large for it. Plus some stands with brackets will only be suitable 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 shelves or doors on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made from timber as the primary material, and some might have glass doors.
Tip: If you’re going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll want to make sure that the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands 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 modern appearance and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As its name suggests, 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 trunk, so it matches snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you’re tight on space, since you’ll have the ability to push the stand further in the corner and spare a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for exactly the exact same type of timber as your existing furniture, so it matches up and does not look out of place.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a specific style of stand but don’t like the kind of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of timber are available (contact us here). If you want a better quality stand, start looking for models that are created with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually difficult to tell from real solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests 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 only see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it’s always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the hottest stand color nowadays is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and red. Some more modern designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that’ll fit in and enhance your room layout.
