Designs of Popular TV Stands
TV Stands with Built-in TV Mounts
These types of TV stands are rapidly gaining popularity in the market, because as TVs are getting thinner (flat-screen) but wider, TV mounts are becoming more necessary to make sure nothing falls over.
They do this without forcing you to drill any holes in your wall, which is much easier for those who are renting a home. As well as this, they often come with methods of hiding any wires connecting the TV to wall sockets and consoles, which make a room look tidier. This is why these stands are so popular!
Traditional Cabinet TV Stands
This is probably the easiest type of TV stand to find. There are plenty of them in circulation, and because they are so easy to build, they are one of the most sought-after.
They often come with shelving to store other objects/consoles, and the sometime have doors too so you can hide electric equipment. However, because they are so straightforward, they are often overlooked for ‘fancier’ TV stands with newer features, such as TV mounts.
Corner TV Stands
Corner stands are most popular for those with smaller homes/apartments, who also own smaller TVs. This is because the stands are meant to fit into the corner of a room to reduce the amount of space they take up which saves space for other furniture. But this means that the width of the TV can only be as big as the corner of the room.
The biggest TV that seems able to fit on a corner TV stand is 42 inches. These are popular with students and those who are renting, but they are less popular with homeowners.
Most Popular TV Stand Material
With the variety of TV stands out there, there is also a huge variety of materials used to create them. On the rise in popularity are metal and glass units - they are modern, sleek and easy to keep clean. However, the most popular TV stand material to date is still wood!
This is because wood is sturdier than the other materials, it fits in with an ‘elegant’ look in a home, and it is often cheaper too (unless you get a high-quality hardwood stand, such as oak, walnut or maple).
What you can get if you are looking for a wood-like TV stand that isn’t too expensive, is an MDF (medium-density fiberboard) stand, or a particle board stand. This is the most commonly used material, because it is inexpensive.
As well as this, it is easy to build and cover with any wood-type veneer, so it will look like a wood TV stand!
