How to Choose a TV Stand That Magically Fits Your Living Space and Style

Are you looking for ideas to tone up your living space, or you bought a modern and technologically-advanced TV, and you require a befitting stand? You are in the right place since this article contains some practical tips and tricks to help you achieve the dream.

The TV is the focal and gathering point in many homes, making a living room the most favorite space in the whole house. As a result, choosing a suitable TV stand makes your entertainment area attractive and improves the overall look of the entire room. Here are the tips you need to give it the best shot.

VIEWING HEIGHT

After spending money on purchasing your dream TV set, you need to enjoy the view. Setting the TV screen either too high or too low, will make viewing very uncomfortable and inconvenience your comfort. As a result, you should consider the height of your TV stand before purchase. The thumb rule for TV stand heights should be 42 inches. However, this height may differ due to the size of your sofa chairs.

MATERIAL OF THE STAND

The next significant aspect you should factor in is the material of the stand. This you may consider in the features of stability, durability, and your home’s aesthetics. Most TV stands are made of glass, metal, wood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), or particleboard. If stability is your main concern, then wood and metal stands should serve you better since they’re long-lasting. Most glass TV stands with metal reinforcements are also durable. Still, they are not suitable for high-traffic homes since keeping them clean and free of cracks will be tedious. Particle and MDF boards offer less longevity, but they’re a cost-effective alternative to wood.

STYLE OF THE HOME

Looks are very critical to your home. When choosing a suitable TV stand for your home, consider the one that blends well with your living room’s color patterns, interior décor style, and general aesthetics.

SIZE AND WIDTH OF YOUR TV

Although modern flat-screen TVs typically come with stable bases for equal weight distribution, your stand still needs to offer stability. Therefore, you should ensure that your frame is wider than the TV’s bottom to avoid overhanging. This is mostly to avoid accidents if your TV is in a high-traffic space. If the room is small, consider a style (such as a corner stand) that can adequately fit.
