walmart tv stands 50 inch – Initially you may think picking a TV stand is a easy thing to do, but it is only once you begin searching, that you realise how vast the choices are. Different colours, a few made from glass, some wood, a few metallic or a mix, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, this list continues.
So Where Do You Begin?
Size of this TV Stand
This is very important since the stand must be big enough, but not too big that it dwarfs your TV and looks too big. Stands are usually quoted as being appropriate for TVs up to a particular size. As a consequence, you shouldn’t put a TV on it that is bigger than that which is recommended, but you can eliminate TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV measurements and compare this to the stand, in particular the width. It will look strange if the TV overhangs the border, and it may not be safe. If you think you may upgrade to a larger TV in the near future, you may wish to think about getting a stand that’s a bit larger than what you want. Not too big though, otherwise your existing TV will appear out of place on a stand that’s way too big for it. Plus a few stands with brackets will only be appropriate for TVs in a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These types of stands often come in a more conventional style box like shape. They usually have drawers, enclosed shelves or doors on front. Many TV cabinets are also usually made from wood as the primary material, and a few may have glass doors.
Suggestion: If you’re going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cabinet, you will want to be certain 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 raises the TV above the stand. This is a good option if you’re searching for a contemporary appearance and is only feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
As its name suggests, these stands are for if you put the TV in the corner of this room. The stand looks just like a normal stand out of the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so that it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, since you are going to be able to push the stand farther in the corner and spare a few much needed centimetres.
Wooden TV Stands
Most wooden TV stands are usually made out of wooden veneers not good wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally look for exactly the exact same type of wood as your existing furniture, so that it matches up and doesn’t look out of place.
Depending upon the make and model, TV stands can come in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: If you enjoy a particular style of stand but do not enjoy the type of wood, it is worth asking whether other types of wood are available (contact us). If you want a better quality stand, look for models that are made with ‘real’ wood veneers, since they are usually hard to tell from real good wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as its name suggests these stands are primarily 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. Therefore, if you only find a black glass version but need transparent glass, it is always worth asking since both versions are often available.
Coloured TV Stands
Even though the most popular stand colour these days is black, you will 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 will fit in and enhance your room layout.
