You may have to get creative to comfortably fit your new larger TV stand in a room of your home. A corner TV stand can be an excellent solution. It allows you to tuck your TV into the corner freeing up valuable wall space in the rest of the room. Hanging your TV on the wall using a wall mount can also be a lifesaver in a room where its already tight.When you buy a flat screen TV, you buy it by size, but the size that is specified is the diagonal measurement of the screen.
On the other hand, if you use a tilting mount, you will be able to point the TV screen down at the viewers effectively achieving the same thing. In our home theater, we have positioned the TV higher because we sit in recliners and looking straight at a TV that is at eye-level is awkward and a strain on the neck. If you will be mostly watching TV from a reclined position, keep that in mind when youre choosing your AV furniture.
Most TV stands specify a maximum weight in addition to maximum width for the flat panel TVs they can accommodate. You should be careful about the weight specification though. Some manufacturers specify the total weight including all shelves that a stand can handle and some will specify just the weight of the TV, which means the weight that the top of the TV stand can withstand. AV furniture style is important. When it comes to your home furnishings, its all about how it makes you feel. You have your own style and your TV stand should reflect that.
On the other hand, when a TV stand specifies that it can accommodate TVs up to a certain size, there is really no way to tell whether theyre are talking about diagonal size or actual TV width. A TVs width will always be less than its diagonal screen measurement. That means that whether theyre referencing the TV width or TV display diagonal length, the TV stand will accommodate either. That being said, in case there is a mistake in the description of the TV stand youre considering, its good to verify the actual width of the TV stand so you can compare it to the width of your flat panel TV.
