stereo cabinet ikea – At first you might think choosing a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it’s only when you start searching, which you realise how enormous the choices are. Various colours, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metal or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential because the rack must be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are often quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. As a consequence, you should not put a TV on it that’s larger than what is advocated, however you can eliminate TVs which are marginally smaller.
Tip: Check your TV dimensions and compare this to the rack, 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 bigger TV in the near future, you might want to consider obtaining a stand that’s slightly bigger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your existing TV will appear out of place on a stand that’s way too big for this. Plus a few stands with brackets will only be suitable for TVs within a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands frequently come in a more traditional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made from wood 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 inside the cupboard, you will need to be certain the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or panel.
Cantilever TV Stands
With these stands your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV over the stand. This is a great option if you’re searching for a modern appearance and is only possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name implies, these stands are for if you set the TV in the corner of this space. The stand appears just like 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’re tight on space, because you are going to have the ability to push the rack further in the corner and spare a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made with wooden veneers not good wood, helping to keep down the cost. You should ideally start looking for the exact same sort of wood as your existing furniture, so that it matches up and doesn’t look out of place.
Based on the model and make, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you like a specific type of rack but do not like the kind of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models which are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually hard to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as the name implies these stands are mainly made from glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass stands come with either clear or black glass shelves. Therefore, if you only find a black glass version but want clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often available.
While the hottest stand colour nowadays is black, you will also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that’ll fit in and compliment your room layout.
