This television stand guide explains the different types of TV stands and how to select the right one for your home. Some things to consider include size, shape, dimension, storage capacity, the type of television you have, and the space where you’ll install it.

How to Choose a TV Stand Style

There are many options of TV stand styles. But it’s essential to start by examining the aesthetic of the room you plan to place your television stand. Some questions to ask are:

  • Is the room modern and sleek or more traditional?
  • Do you want to brighten up the room with your TV console, add contrast, or blend?
  • Will you need space to store a DVD player or other television peripherals?

Understanding the style of your room and the purpose of the TV stand will help you to narrow down the options.

Television Stand Size, Placement, and Spacing

Before you choose a TV stand, you’ll want to ensure that it is a good fit for your room. Consider your wall space, square footage, and the size of your television in your choice.

If your space is limited, choose a shorter television stand. Measure the area where you want to place it to be sure it’s a good fit. If you have a larger room with plenty of wall space, then a long TV stand will help fill out the area.

Also, consider the size of your television. Measure the width of your TV to determine the best fit. The challenge is that television dimensions are measured differently than other furniture. For example, when you buy a 65 inch TV, it doesn’t mean that you need a 65-inch TV stand. This measurement is a diagonal ratio to calculate the size of the screen. A 65-inch wide television could fit on a smaller width stand.

If you already own the television that you are buying a stand for, then you can simply measure its width with a tape measure. But if you don’t have access to the TV to measure it, you can check the TV manufacturer’s website or use this simple chart to guide you.

Choosing the Right Design for a TV Stand

You’ve determined the function of your TV stand and know what size you need. Now its time to choose the right design. How do you choose? It’s simple. Start with what you like – and think about what you don’t like.

Do messy cable cords bother you? Would you like to hide away all your DVDs or video games? A TV console with drawers or cabinets can hide or camouflage these things.

If you want to add warmth to the room, you could select an electric fireplace TV stand or choose one with shelving to store your favorite collection of books.  Gather your thoughts about this to help you narrow the options even further.
