wall mounted entertainment console – Initially you might think picking a TV stand is a easy matter to do, but it’s just when you start looking, which you realise how vast the choices are. Various colors, some made of glass, some wood, some metallic or a mix, corner racks, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is essential because the rack has to be big enough, but not too big that it dwarfs your TV and seems too big. 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 what is advocated, but you can eliminate TVs which are marginally smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV measurements 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 not too distant future, you might want to consider getting a stand that is slightly bigger than what you need. Not too big though, otherwise your current TV will appear strange on a stand that is far too big for it. Plus some racks with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs in a certain size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands often come in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Most TV cabinets are also usually made of timber as the primary material, and some might have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to set your gear like SKY, DVD player etc inside the cupboard, you’ll need to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these racks your TV is mounted on a mount, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re looking for a contemporary look and is just possible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name suggests, these racks are for when you set the TV in the corner of this room. The stand appears 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 racks are great if you are tight on space, because you’ll be able to push the rack farther into the corner and save a couple of much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not good wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for the same sort of timber as your current furniture, so that it matches up and does not look strange.
Depending on the model and make, TV stands may come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you like a specific type of rack but do not like the type of wood, it’s worth asking whether other types of timber are available (contact us here). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models which are made with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they are usually hard to tell from actual good wood.
Again as the name suggests these racks are primarily made of glass, usually consisting of 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Lots of glass racks come with either clear or black glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but need clear glass, it’s always worth asking because both versions are often offered.
Coloured TV Stands
While the most popular stand colour nowadays is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and even red. Some more contemporary designs are also offered in a high gloss finish. So look out for colors that’ll fit in and enhance your room layout.
