TV Stands: A Long-Standing Convenience

TVs have evolved greatly in size, style, and technology over the years. As a result, TV stands have evolved a lot too. Today, you can find a wide array of TV stands that range from simple benches with open shelf designs to large, elaborate stands equipped with all sorts of convenient storage features. With so many options to choose from, it can be quite a challenge to figure out which one to go for. Read on to learn about the different types and features to consider to help you make the right decision.

Types of TV stands

One big step towards finding the right TV stand for your setup is to figure out which type of TV stand best suits your needs.

Standard TV stands and benches

Standard TV stands and benches vary quite a lot in style and shape, but typically sport an open shelf design with either a wood or glass and metal construction. They’re a great option for providing a stable platform for your TV and ample space for your home theatre electronics without necessarily making your TV the centerpiece of the room.

TV consoles and cabinets

TV consoles and cabinets generally feature convenient storage space in the form of drawers or shelves concealed by cabinet doors. They’re great for storing your media and home theatre accessories while maintaining a clean, stylish look that can complement your room’s décor.

Fireplace TV stands

Fireplace TV stands are a unique and eye-catching option for those who want their TV setup to be the centrepiece of the room. Imagine combining the warmth and comfort of a fireplace with the convenience of a TV stand. They save space, look great, and add an inviting feel to the ambience of the room.

Mount-integrated stands

Mount-integrated stands combine certain qualities of TV stands and mounts into one clever and convenient design. They sport a solid, multi-tiered base with a central spine attached to the back that your TV can be mounted on. Providing additional stability for your TV, mount-integrated stands offer the appearance of a wall mount and the mobility of a floor mount.

Things to Consider Before Buying a TV Stand

Before you buy a TV stand, it’s important to keep a few key points in mind to ensure you’re making the right choice.

TV size and weight

For safety reasons, make sure the TV stand you’re considering is wide enough and able to support the weight of your TV. Also, while the height of a TV stand is a matter of personal preference, it’s generally a good idea to position your TV so the lower half of the screen is at eye level.

Room size

Consider the living space where your TV stand will be located. If it’s a large, spacious room dedicated to your home theatre, then a bigger, more elaborate stand will fit in nicely. If you’re short on space or would prefer a more subtle addition to a room, look at some smaller-scale options.

Style

It’s also important to consider the décor of your room when choosing a TV stand. There are several different styles out there to choose from to help make sure the TV stand blends in with the rest of your décor. You can find TV stands with a modern, transitional, or contemporary style, among others.

Convenience

Keep an eye out for convenient storage options to store your media and home theatre accessories. You’ll come across TV stands with handy drawers, adjustable shelves, and various sized compartments. If space is an issue, consider getting a corner TV stand so you can tuck everything out of the way to free up space.
