Mahogany and oak TV stands are two great examples of how traditional materials can be used in a floor stand, whereas they are rarely seen in wall mounted stands. In addition to this, floor TV stands generally have a larger amount of space to play with, leaving enough room for all of your equipment, including consoles, Freeview or Sky boxes, DVDs, DVD players and much more. They can also hold a great deal more weight than wall mounted stands. The downside is, of course, that a wall stand will take up far less space than a floor stand. For this reason, the former may be a good choice for those with less room to work with.
If you have children or pets, flat screen TVs present a unique problem. It used to be that TVs were large and heavy and were not as much of a tipping hazard. These days, flat panel TVs are larger, thinner, and lighter than ever before and can tip very easily. If your TV will be mounted within reach of your children or pets, you should choose a stand that makes provision for a strap or other anti-tipping device to protect them. Many flat screen TVs now come with anti-tipping protective devices, but a device thats integrated into the stand can provide additional protection.
TV stands come in wood, metal, glass, and other materials. You can choose a stand that matches the rest of your AV furniture or one that complements it. If you watch a lot of TV, you want to be comfortable with the style so that it reinforces good feelings rather than being a constant reminder of your questionable choice. Most modern TVs are bright enough to overcome ambient light in a bright room, but shadows can still cause problems depending on the location of your TV. Its a good idea to pay attention to this while youre placing the TV stand so that you dont end up with poor daytime viewing.
Some TV stands have a hole cutout in the back of the stand and they call it cable management. True cable management includes routing clips and other routing techniques to help you hide and manage your wires, cords, and cables. If the looks and organization of your setup is important, be sure to choose a stand with a true cable management design. Its widely accepted that your TVs integrated audio system will probably be uninspiring. Sound bars and external speakers are the solution and allow you to immerse yourself in high definition audio that can completely change your viewing experience.
