These tended to be rectangular in design, although as many TV’s are positioned in the corner of the room, it wasn’t long before corner TV stands were developed.
One potential drawback with these corner designs is that they can provide limited space for your AV equipment – especially if the rear goes to a point to fit exactly in the corner. Therefore, if you have a range of amplifiers, players and games consoles to install, then you might need to consider where they are all going to go.
In the example above of the Sauder Harbor View corner TV stand pictured above – the rear is flat with just the edges shaped for a corner – so that gives more room for equipment inside.
Whichever type of TV stand that you choose, there are a number of general considerations which you should think about while you are making your decision.
The glass shelves will usually come with metal supports or wooden frames – like the wooden legs on the Whalen Furniture AVCEC65-TC Table Top TV Stand in the picture here. Therefore you have a big choice as to the look of the stand that you want in your room.
The main advantages of a mount TV stand as opposed to wall mounting a television is a significant increase in flexibility of positioning and repositioning. It will also often have superior cable management.
With a traditional glass or wooden stand, your TV will often be standing on the top of the unit (unless you have it separately wall mounted). Therefore, this leaves less surface area to place your external hardware.
