While wall-mount television were highly popular a few years ago, today you can find amazing stands that not only help place your TV set, but offer much more than that.
These stands are often the focal point of your living rooms. They are so designed that they form a complete entertainment center, holding your TV sets, the music system, speakers, set top box, CDs and DVDs. No matter if you are replacing an old one or planning to buy one along with other furniture pieces, here are some tips to help you have the best.
Using a mix of materials is a great idea that offers a fancy look to the furniture. You can use two materials in equal or unequal proportion to get the desired effect. Usually delicate materials such as glass are used in combination with metals like wrought iron which offer a sturdy frame.
You can have shelves above the space made for placing the TV as well. Usually, large stands have TV set placed in center with shelves on all sides. You can also have the TV set placed at one side and have the cabinets and shelves extended on one side depending upon the placement of seating furniture.
Corner stands are also a hit in small spaces. Even if you have a wall mount LED TV, a simple stand consisting of equal-sized drawers and closed shelves placed right below it can be considered. Make sure the stand is low and graced up with classic knobs and drawer pulls.
You can have a dual-colored stand with glossy finish and funky shades like pink and violet. Having a stand in a color matching with rest of the home interior is sure to look a class apart. You can pick a contrast shade to jazz up the room.
While choosing a color make sure that it rightly complements the background area. While you choose some bright shades or unusual colors, ensure that they fit well in the existing room, and do not make the room appear smaller.
While shelves, drawers, and boxes are quite commonly seen, why not have something unique. Like having a round stand instead of the very common rectangular one. A TV integrated in wall, a set of open shelves on both sides at a specific distance, that too wall integrated and two long open shelves below the television, again wall integrated makes classic stand.
You can place music systems on lower shelves and show pieces on each side. Wrought iron offers a lot of free style designs. You can also consider a design that offers a movable block wherein your TV is placed. This block is attached to the lower cabinet of the stand and has arrangements to place thin books or magazines from both sides due to its extra depth.
