When it comes to selecting a TV stand that matches your personal tastes and home entertainment needs, there are several things to consider. It’s helpful to start by identifying the right size and configuration. You should make sure the TV cabinet or stand will hold your TV — along with any other components you want to organize — and fit within your space. Measuring everything is a must. A 50-inch TV stand might be an ideal size for your living room. But for a larger TV in your home theater, a 65-inch TV stand could be more appropriate. Or perhaps a small TV stand or TV table would work for your bedroom or apartment.
Next, you can narrow down the selection further by price point or the general appearance of the stand. What is the style of your home? Do you want the TV stand to blend in or be a focal point? A white TV stand unifies a room with white trim and white shelves. A black TV stand fits a variety of décor, from minimalist to modern. TV stands are also made from different materials. A glass TV stand can enhance a contemporary space, or it can help a small space feel open by not adding bulk. But if you want to keep components and cables hidden, a wood TV stand or entertainment center with cabinets and shelves does the trick. Plus, these more closely resemble furniture pieces with styles ranging from modern farmhouse to mid-century to rustic TV stands. You can also find a TV stand with mount, which elevates the TV and creates space for a sound bar on the stand below.
