TV Stand Buying Guide

Before you jump in and buy a new TV stand it’s important that you do some research and make sure that the one you choose is going to be the right choice for your living room and TV.

Here are some things to consider before purchasing your new TV stand.

Size

Probably the most important thing for you to consider first and foremost is the size of the unit. Not only do you need to make sure that it is going to be a good fit for your living room, the size of your television set plays a big part. You don’t want your TV to be overhanging the stand, but on the other hand if the TV stand is too large for your TV it will not look quite right and can even make your TV seem smaller than it is. So before you do anything, make sure you get your tape measure out to ensure you know exactly what sized TV stand you are looking for.

Style

Once you have decided on the perfect size, you are going to want to try and find a style that will fit in with your d├ęcor. These days you can find plenty of different TV stand styles to suite your needs. Whether your looking for something rustic, modern or even something in-between.

Type

There a various different types of TV stand for you to choose from;

  • Corner

Corner TV stands are generally smaller than other option but depending on the size of your living room you may want something that fits snuggly in the corner and doesn’t take up too much space.

  • Entertainment centers

Entertainment centers provide plenty of storage space for all of your media devices. So if you have a few games consoles and other tech that you want to store in your TV stand then this is probably the best choice for you.

  • Wall mounted (Floating)

Wall mounted or floating TV stands offer a very clean and modern look, If you have (or plan on having) your TV mounted onto the wall as well, this can create a very modern look which opens up the size of your living room.

  • Traditional

If you are just looking for a basic stand with a few shelves to put your TV box or a few ornaments then a traditional TV stand would be perfect choice.

Materials

The materials used generally tend to coincide with the price of the unit. If you are looking for something made from solid wood expect the price to be much higher than if they are made from manufactured wood or metal. But generally the higher priced, solid wood options are going to be the most sturdy and durable.

Features

Some stands now offer additional features, whether it be practical, such as adjustable shelving, cable management, tempered glass or even built in fireplaces. Or if you want something with a bit of a wow factor you could opt for built in LED lights to show off your TV stand. LED lights can also be bought separately though, so you shouldn’t base your decision solely on this feature.

Once you have decided on the above you can begin with the fun part, choosing the perfect TV stand for you. Take a look below at some of the top rated white TV stands.
