Understandably, a TV unit is a fixture that can often take up central space in a room, which makes it all the more important to pick the right one. Things to look out for while shopping for TV wall unit include:
Size of the television:
Although televisions are measured by their diagonal width, TV cabinets feature traditional measurements of width and height, so it is important to have all your measurements sorted and account for an additional 2 inches (at least) of width, while picking out your TV stand. While deciding on the right pick of TV unit for your living room, ensure that you choose a size that not only fits the available space, but one that is in proportion to the surroundings as well. A wide TV stand is preferred in case you have a larger television. Wall mounting your TV and opting for a simple TV table to store media essentials is also a great option if your living room is not very spacious. You can always add shelving units around the wide TV stand to display décor items or books.
Room ambience and style:
As we mentioned earlier, TV cabinets tend to be the central, focal point of a room, which is why it is vital to pick a TV stand that complements and enhances the overall décor and ambience of a room. For instance, while a glass TV unit may fit incredibly well with the décor of your room, one must keep in mind that it isn’t the best idea if kids are present. A wall mount TV stand is a great option for smaller living spaces especially if it features a compact design that works well with different TV sizes. A wall mount TV stand helps create the illusion of space as the unit is completely elevated from the floor.
Functionality and features:
Consider which features you’re looking for from your TV unit. If you have a collection of video games, or DVDs that you’d like to store, you might want to consider a TV unit with cabinet space. If the idea of lighting being used creatively appeals to you from a décor perspective, you could opt for a TV stand with LED lighting. If displaying décor items and other memorabilia such as photo frames is what you’re looking for, then consider choosing a TV stand with lots of shelves and display space.
Common materials used in TV units
