Different Types Of TV Stands

TV Stands come in different shapes and material and are designed to the buyer’s unique taste of preference. These types can be put into different categories as listed below:

  1. Material

This is the main difference between TV stands, and the various available materials are discussed below.

Glass TV stands

The main advantage of the glass TV stands is the beauty it provides. The clear glass displays the electronics arranged under the TV such as DSTV Decoders and music modules.

Solid wood TV stand

A solid wood TV stand offers quality and durability. Depending on the wood used, such as aged mahogany wood, it offers beauty from the dark patterns which occur naturally on wood.

Metallic TV stands

These are made of various metal ores, with the most available being brass stands. They often offer lighter stands than the solid wood TV stand. They enable the creation of different designs and can be incorporated into other materials such as a glass top.

  1. Design

Most people choose a TV stand based on its design. The design is based on various factors, such as the items to be included on the stand, and purpose of the same. The following are subcategories of various designs that can be used

Open shelf TV stand

These are a common kind of stands, where the different layers below the top are not closed. They expose the music system, or any other items placed on them, making it easy, and making the room look more orderly.

TV stands with audio compartments

These are mostly solid wood TV stands, which have two tall structures which tower either side of a shorter unit. The two flanking structures are often used as audio compartments, to place tall boys for a home theater.

Cabinet TV stands

This structure allows for a closed kind of solid wood TV stands, incorporating closed shelves and drawers either below, above, or on the side of the TV space. The TV space is left bare, but there is a door which is used to enclose the TV when not in use.

Floating TV stands

As the name suggests, these are TV cabinets nailed to the wall surface. This stand is minimal on the number of shelves, often limiting to one level. The TV is placed on top of the floating stand. The material for this kind of stand should be light to avoid tumbling.

  1. Style

Traditional stands

These stands, evoke a look from back in time. These include a natural solid look, which gives the stands a timeless look.

Modern stands

These are designed using modern ways, such as incorporating glass on wooden TV stands. This style changes with the change in human behavior.

Rustic design stands

These are TV stands which have a vintage look. They invoke styles used in past decades, such as the inclusion of artistic patterns associated with the 80’s. They are often made using reclaimed and old wood, which gives them a comforting warm look.

There is no limit to a TV stand choice, where buyers have an option of specifying their desired style. This can be a one or a combination of more styles discussed above.
