When it’s time to get some new furniture for your home, a new TV stand might not be the first thing on your list….but, maybe it should be higher up said list than you think!
Why would somebody want to buy a new TV stand?
There are several reasons why somebody would want to purchase a new stand for their television, probably the most common reason would be to accommodate their bigger, shinier and more expensive TV that they have just purchased. With the advancement in technology, TV’s are becoming more than just something to watch the news on or maybe a movie or two at the weekend. Now a TV is more like an entertainment center in itself! And they certainly have the price tag to prove it!
Because of this, you are going to want to make sure your nice new TV has a safe and of course stylish place to sit in your home. Which brings us to the TV stand.
As with TV’s, the stands that support them have also come a long way in the technology department. Once upon a time a TV stand was simply something to place your television on top of, nowadays they can come with an abundance of storage space, LED lights, and even integrated fireplaces! Not to mention the different styles that you can get such as modern, retro, corner and floating.
The style and design that is going to be the perfect fit for your home will vary depending on a wide variety of factors, so it’s important to work out exactly what your needs are before you actually start looking for your brand new TV stand. If you need help decided on which style of design to go for you should take a look at our Guide for finding the perfect TV stand.
Is it worth the investment?
Because of the fact that TV stands come in a wide variety of different shapes, sizes and styles as you would expect, the prices will vary massively also. If you just need something that is basic and straight forward you probably aren’t going to be worried about making that purchase at all. If, however, a TV stand that is much more high end is on your shopping list, you will probably be asking yourself is it worth the investment?
The answer to this question is really quite a simple one actually. All you have to do is ask yourself this question – how much time do I spend in front of my TV? If the answer is – not too much, then you probably wouldn’t be able to justify shelling out so much money on a brand new TV stand. If, on the other hand, you do in fact spend a lot of time watching TV, playing video games, watching movies or a mixture of all three then it’s safe to say that you probably can justify spending your money on this type of furniture.
Will it change the look and feel of my room?
In a word, yes! A TV stand and of course the TV itself is quite often going to be the focal point of whichever room in your house it is in. For this reason, it is definitely going to effect the style and décor of the room.
So before you go rushing in and deciding which style and color of TV stand you want, be sure to first think about the current style and décor of the room and also the other items of furniture in said room. Something that’s also worth thinking about is whether or not you are going to redecorate in the near future. The last thing you want is to spend your hard earned cash on a top of the range TV stand, only to redecorate in a few months or even years and discover that it doesn’t work at all with the new design.
