TV Stands Can Bring Warmth to Your Media Room

When buying a new flat-screen television, finding TV stands are fairly simple. In addition to finding them in almost every store where you buy your television, you can find tons of them online. Compare them closely and pick the one that fits your needs best. These work real well if you are staying somewhere temporarily and don't want to rip up the wall with a bracket-mount. Check out the following hints for choosing TV stands that work for you:

1. Look at price. Something that costs 500 pounds will be more sturdy than something that costs 50 pounds. Think you're getting a good deal? Take a look at the material its made of. Something cheap will usually look that way. A good idea to help you save money is to buy display models or discontinued items. These are not made cheaply, just no longer needed. TV stands bought this way usually last a long time.

2. Decorative elements. What color is it? Will it match your decor? What about material? You wouldn't want a wood TV stand if all your furniture is black leather or metal and glass. These considerations are usually the first things that one looks at, as they are the most apparent to the naked eye.

3. Technical aspects. If you're ordering TV stands online through the mail, how much does it weigh? Sometimes the shipping costs offset the money you would save buying this way. Another disadvantage is that many times assembly is required, costing countless wasted minutes and frustration. When you buy in the store, many times delivery is included and you don't have to worry about the frustration and time wasted putting it together yourself.

4. Size does matter. Before you go out looking for TV stands, don't forget to measure the space you have. Do you have speakers? How will they be mounted and where? Make sure that the stand you choose is deep enough to hold all your components and your DVDs if you are going to keep your media next to your entertainment center.

5. Do your research. When you are at the homes of others, ask where they purchased their TV stands if it is one you really admire. Also research your suppliers. If buying online, find out about their feedback ratings and shipping rates. When going to a store near you, have a thorough understanding of their return policies and satisfaction guarantee.

6. Skip the warranty. Unlike expensive electronics, TV stands are rarely going to stop working for you. Warranties are less important unless you are a sumo wrestler or massive partier concerned about your new stand getting broken.. Warranties on furniture are usually a waste of time. Check for an upgrade program, though, as this might do well if you are starting off small.

These considerations are the most important when looking for TV stands. Of course, these may not be your only concerns. Just be sure to talk to others and find out what works for them. Televisions are so lightweight, that you can get away with a less than sturdy model these days. Happy hunting!
