HDTV Stands Housing your Home Theater

Feb 27, 2008
Alright, so you've convinced yourself into buying that new LCD or plasma HDTV. You're spending more than a thousand dollars on it, and you're convinced it's going to look great in your living room. However when you bring it home, you realize that your old wood stand looks antiquated and ugly holding up that sleek, almost futuristic screen. You need something snazzy for it, and for pittance more, you can buy an HDTV stand that will complement your HDTV perfectly, giving it the look you've always wanted it to have.

Features and Looks

HDTV stands combine sleek looks with strong materials and easy accessibility for the perfect combination to complement your home theater. Many have metal frames which can hold hundreds of pounds (more than your HDTV will ever need, but it's nice to know that nothing will break the stand), and glass panels allow your DVD players and surround sound receivers to receive commands from your remote control, so you don't have to open up the HDTV stand just to use your television. Not only that, but glass has a very futuristic feel, and newer manufacturing processes have resulted in stronger materials, so you don't have to worry about it breaking.

Of course, if you don't like the whole steel and glass look, you can always go with a wooden HDTV stand. Many of these can include glass as well if you so choose, or you can buy entirely wood HDTV stands, but you won't get the added benefit of being able to use devices inside the stand without opening up the doors. While a small point, many people do enjoy the convenience. On the other hand, many people do not enjoy looking at their electronics as they watch movies or television, or they might think that they look ugly and would like to hide them behind pristine wood doors.

So what would you expect to pay for these HDTV stands? Hundreds of dollars? Other pieces of furniture can cost thousands, and you will probably only pay two or three hundred for a beautiful television stand, and the metal stands are generally cheaper than the wooden ones. In fact, many television companies sell their HDTVs with stands because it's more affordable for them to bundle products together, and you can often get great deals on HDTV stands when you buy an HDTV.

Of course, an HDTV stand should be the last item on your list when purchasing a new television. The quality of the other components comes first, and you'd probably be less happy with a stand than with beautiful, crystalline sound coming from that awesome new surround sound system. Depending on your budget, you might have to choose which part of your home theater you can't afford at the moment, and at the very least, you'll probably find it beneficial to buy a cheap HDTV stand as opposed to skimping out on other audio and video components.
