How to buy a TV Stand - Orange County’s Furniture Warehouse
Buying something like a TV stand can take some planning. These quick tips can make the process a bit easier. A TV stand should match your existing decor and work functionally. TV stands come in different shapes and sizes, where will it fit in the room? The size of a TV stand is based on the room's unique needs. You can temporarily put another piece of furniture in its place to get an idea of the TV stand's footprint and how much space you have to work with. Make sure to measure the space and choose the TV stand accordingly. Just as important as the room space, the size of the TV plays a critical a factor. If you have a flat screen TV, the depth wont matter as much. But if there are many entertainment electronics, the TV stand should be large enough to hold them all. Also, the height of the TV stand should lend to comfortable viewing. When the TV is on the stand, it should be at a comfortable sightline when seated. This will depend on your current seating. Also, the amount of shelves and drawers can vary, make sure to get a model which fits your electronics needs. Most TV stands have a circular back panel for cords to pass though, make sure this exists if this is important for your arrangement. Also consider the material. To make the TV area feel more light and airy consider a glass TV stand, this will draw the eye to the TV itself and to other furniture. However it might not be as good as hiding electronics. Glass TV stands can have sharp edges so take this into consideration if you have young kids. For an area with kids a material that has a bevel is a better choice, such as a wood. Woods can give the area a more cozy look. Materials such as sculpted wood, or a vintage look something that has wheels etc, can add a story and warmth to the entertainment area. Pinterest can also be a great place to start, as there are many room configuration examples which match the TV stand beautifully to the feel of the room.
