tv stand grey – At first you might think choosing a TV stand is a easy thing to do, but it is just once you start searching, which you realise how enormous the options are. Various colours, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a mix, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list goes on.
Size of this TV Stand
This is very important because the rack must be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and seems 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 is larger than that which is advocated, but you can eliminate TVs which are slightly smaller.
Tip: Check your TV dimensions and compare that to the rack, in particular the width. It will look 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 might want to think about getting a stand that’s slightly bigger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your existing TV will appear strange on a stand that’s way too big for it. Plus a few stands with mounts 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 come in a more conventional fashion box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Most TV cabinets are also generally made from wood as the primary material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to set your equipment like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cabinet, you’ll need to make sure that 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 above the stand. This is a great option if you’re searching for a modern look 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 this space. The stand looks just like a normal stand out of 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’ll have the ability to push the rack farther in the corner and spare a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not solid hardwood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for the same type of wood as your existing furniture, so that it matches up and doesn’t look strange.
Based upon the model and make, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, walnut, walnut or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a specific style of rack but do not enjoy the kind of wood, it is worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you want a better quality rack, start looking for models which are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually hard to tell from real solid wood.
Again as the name implies these stands are mainly made from glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you just find a black glass version but need transparent glass, it is always worth asking because both versions are often available.
Even though the most popular stand color these days is black, you’ll also locate them in silver, white and red. Some more modern designs are also available in a high gloss finish. So look out for colours that’ll fit in and compliment your room design.
