TV Stands for Every TV

by

Once you've chosen a new high-definition television, you'll need the right piece of furniture to put it on. A TV Stand is perfect for HDTVs, but you need to choose one that's the right size for your TV. It's important to note that the TV and TV stand won't have exactly the same measurement. And when you consider the TV's actual size, you'll need to include the measurement of the bezel (the frame around the screen) and not just the screen size. This guide will help you buy the TV stand that's right for your TV. And once you know what size to buy, you can choose the style that suits your home.

Types of TV Stands:

  1. Floating TV stands: Just like floating bookshelves, floating TV stands hang on the wall and don't have legs that rest on the floor. The look is clean and contemporary. You'll want to make sure that your wall is sturdy and that you can drill into studs to mount this piece of furniture.

  2. Entertainment consoles: Generally larger than other options, entertainment consoles are big enough to contain all of your components and store a small media library, too. With one of these, you may want to choose one that is significantly wider than your television, so you'll have room for large speakers or decorative items.

  3. Corner TV stands: If you need to fit an entertainment center into a small room, a corner TV stand is a good choice. With an angled back that will wedge neatly into a corner space, a corner stand will give you enough room for your TV as well as some storage.

  4. TV stands with mount: Wall mounts are popular for flat-screen TVs, but not everyone wants to hang their TV on the wall. Renters may not be allowed to put holes in the walls, and owners of older home may not want to risk hanging their TVs in plaster walls. But you can get the look with a TV stand with a mount. These may be just narrow enough to hold a few components and the mount, or they may be much wider than the TV and have a base that offers as much storage as an entertainment console.
