wall mounted media shelf – The main concerns when purchasing TV stands and entertainment centers are strength and durability, ventilation, room for expansion and accessibility. If you will be adding speakers, you will also have to decide if you need to leave room for freestanding speaker stands or if you will be including the speakers on your entertainment center setup. The kind of TV stand you choose will largely depend on the kind of television you are buying the stand for. Before buying one, it will save you time and money if you know: the size of your TV, how much it weighs and also the dimensions and weight of some additional components you want the stand to maintain.
Since traditional or CRT televisions tend to be heavier than other types of TVs, TV stands and entertainment centers intended to display and store standard tube TVs are made to accommodate the weight. A CRT TV stand can essentially be used for almost any other type of television, like plasma or LCD, since they’re generally lighter than conventional televisions.
Flat screen televisions are slick and striking in appearance. TV stands specifically to get a plasma or LCD TV are made to showcase the most up-to-date in today’s technology. As an alternative to using a stand, because LCD and plasma TVs are generally lighter than conventional televisions, they may be mounted to a wall, ceiling or detachable arm using the appropriate mounting option.
If you are shopping for a stand to get a rear projection TV, remember that they’re generally heavier at the back than plasma or LCD televisions. Ensure the top shelf of the TV stand will be wide enough to accommodate the TV.
Buy the stand separately and not in the exact same time as you purchase your television and/or DVD player. This will allow you to see exactly what you need now and also to take into account any future demands.
Would you wish to be able to move the stand around or to be able to reposition it easily? Many types of entertainment centers and TV stands include casters, both the visible and hidden kind.
Ensure the shelf depth of any device you purchase is wide enough to accommodate your own television and other audio/video gear. Most manufacturers’ descriptions will incorporate this information or they’ll be able to supply any additional details.
Since TV furniture and entertainment centers are made to maintain several pieces of gear, tangled cables and wires can detract from the overall appearance of your entertainment center. If that is a concern, pick a device that includes a cable or cable control system.
For optimum functionality, pick TV furniture or entertainment centers with adjustable shelves; this will allow you to customize the device to your requirements.
Form of TV Stands
To select which kind will meet your specific needs, first determine the main purpose of the TV stand: can it be to display the TV, arrange components and DVDs or to maximize the available floor area?
Plasma TV furniture supply display and shelving options designed specifically for thicker plasma TVs or other types of big screen televisions.
LCD stands adapt the weighty LCD televisions. LCD televisions are so mild you may not even need a stand, rather deciding on a wallmounted, ceiling, or swivel arm mounting option. They can be placed almost anywhere, though they seem best on a dedicated stand or mount.
