Popular Types of Modern TV Stands

Currently, there is a range of modern TV stands that match the quality and style of any television set. There are specially made  modern TV stands for flat screens; others are merely functional whereas a select few are high-tech and sophisticated. Functional modern TV stands are cheap as they are not that fanciful.

So which TV stand is right for you? First and foremost, a TV should be able to accommodate your TV set. That said, people buy TV stands to suit their particular needs. Thus, there are many criteria by which people choose a television stand, including TV type, TV size, design of the stand, or the finish.

Modern TV Stands for Flat Screens

Choose by TV Type – This is a pretty straight forward way to select a stand, assuming you already own a set. If you own a LCD or plasma type, select a stand that is specially made for such TVs that are typically bigger in width but smaller in depth. Normally, stands made for plasma and LCD types can also be used for DLP (Digital Light Projection) television sets that are wider than average TVs.

For the CRT (cathode ray tube) type of TV, the stands normally have a square shape with a bigger depth that can support the weight of the TV.

Choose by Size – This is probably the most important factor when selecting a stand for your TV. If you get the others right but choose a wrong size, the stand will be useless. Your set should fit comfortably on the stand and should sit in a relatively centered position to guarantee higher levels of safety. Smaller TV sets (26 to 50 inches) are a bit more flexible than larger sizes (51 inches and more) when it comes to finding a stand. Also, since larger TVs are more costly, they require stands that are sturdier to protect the valued investment.

Choose by design – Whereas it’s important that you choose a TV stand that is functional (meets size requirements and is strong), you also want a stand with the right type of design to fit in with the décor of your living room or wherever you’re going to place your stand. Popular designs include TV cabinets, TV armoires, corner TV stands, swivel stands, and open-shelf stands.

TV armoires are typically used in the bedroom or living room. They have drawers that help hide the TV, which is a great way to shift focus in the room off the TV. Normally these stands also have side drawers for CD and DVD storage.

The cabinet type of stand is much like the armoires but shorter. They also have side compartments for CDs and DVDs, among other items.

Corner stands are ideal for rooms with large windows where a TV cannot be placed. If you want your TV to be the focus of your room, a corner stand will do it, and it also allows for extra protection from the two adjoining walls.

Swivel stands let you safely change the position of your TV as you wish.  This is a safer and more practical approach than carrying your TV around the room.

The open shelf stand is a modern design where the TV rests upon several transparent shelves through which other components can be seen.

Choose by finish – Finally, you can choose a modern TV stand by the style of finish that matches your furniture. Black finish is the most popular because it blends smoothly with most other colors. Silver is another popular finish for stylistic individuals. Material can be wood, metal, or glass.
