TV units are great for holding up your TV, giving you a great viewing angle, and keeping the space around your TV neat and tidy. Before you buy the TV unit, keep in mind the below pointers.
Knowing the measurement is very important before you buy a stand to go with it. If you have no idea about your TVs exact measurements, measure the screen diagonally and find out. Besides the diagonal measurements, also check for width measurements. The TV stand is usually wider than the TV that rests on it.
TV units are available in 3 standard heights – short, standard and tall. Choose one that fits in with the height of your sofa and chairs and that will be comfortable for your viewing angle.
TV stands are usually made of wood and metal. While wood TV stands look sturdy, traditional and rustic, metal looks modern and contemporary. Maple, oak, mahogany were previously used, but off-late plywood, MDF, particle board units which are equally sturdier are increasingly being used. Metal TV units are either wrought iron or chrome finish.
In TV units, there are further types. These include corner TV units, entertainment units and small table units. Entertainment units are designed with plenty of storage for wires, cables, video games consoles, speakers and more. These units hide cords, and allows devices to be connected to the entertainment centre from the TV. Corner TV stands are triangular, small and designed with a triangular edge, so they fit into corners.
Consider the style of your home before buying a TV unit. Depending on it, you can buy a rustic, modern, bohemian or elaborately carved TV stand. It is important for the TV stand not to look out of place in your home.
Brown is often the most popular color in TV units since a majority of them are made from wood. There are many shades and color schemes for brown you can work with. For contemporary styles, black works well. Nowadays many people are buying white and other unique colours.
Shelves, drawers, glass doors are all additional features in TV stands. If you’re getting a customised unit made, add as many shelves as you can for space for every device that needs to be used with the TV. Floating or adjustable shelves help for different size items. TV stands with drawers and glass doors help keep items hidden and discreet.
