TV Stand Buying Guide
When you're shopping for a TV stand, start with physical attributes instead of aesthetic appearance. It needs to be sturdy enough to support all of the equipment safely, and it has to be the right size for the allotted area. Higher shelves and wall units, in particular, need to be very strong. They must support upwards of 200 pounds safely, without buckling or drooping over time. Additionally, they should blend in with the remainder of the room, without drawing undue attention to themselves.
Beyond that, a TV stand should adequately address a number of concerns for the equipment it carries, including:
- Proper ventilation to ensure that the components don't overheat
- Ease of access to let the owner get at the cables and wires behind the TV stand
- Vibration-proof components that won't rattle or make noise when the volume is turned up
- A low center of gravity to ensure that the furniture doesn't tip over and damage any equipment
TV Stands and Wall Units Must Mesh With the Electronics
A TV stand should disperse all of the components over several shelves instead of grouping them all in one place. This helps evenly distribute the weight while giving each component adequate ventilation to avoid overheating. HomeFurnitureMart.com offers TV stands that meet these concerns and can help owners make the best use of their media centers. Our TV center furniture can be tailored to match the aesthetics of the room and provide extra space for new components added at a future date.
