For most of us, the TV is the heart of our living room. We gather around it with our loved ones every night to relax, chat and enjoy our favourite programmes. Placing it in the ideal spot for everyone to see the screen is essential. Whether you want to mount it on the wall to maximise your floor space or choose an attractive TV cabinet as part of your furniture, you'll find some fantastic TV solutions.
And don't forget, TV stands aren't just for the living room, you could mount one in your kitchen so you can catch up on your cooking shows while you make the dinner, or treat yourself to movies in bed by selecting a stand for your bedroom. And there'll be no more arguments over the remote with TV stands in the kids' playroom.
Freestanding or Mounted
You'll find TV stands with a variety of fixture options. Wall mounted stands are popular, especially in smaller rooms where you don't have room for a big entertainment stand. They also allow you to mount your TV at a comfortable height so that you don't strain your neck or slouch in your seat, ideal if you like to keep good posture. Wall mounted TV stands are often the best choice for a bedroom, again because they can be fixed at the right height for watching.
If you have a cabinet you already love that would be a good spot for your TV, you can buy a sleek pedestal stand instead. This simply supports your TV in an upright position, while letting you tilt it to the right angle.
Cabinets and Entertainment Units
Take TV stands to the next level by choosing a specially designed TV cabinet or entertainment unit. The benefit of these models is that you can also store DVD players, games consoles and TV boxes in the same place. There are convenient spaces at the back for your wires and you can choose from a range of materials, from contemporary glass to rustic wood, to suit your decor.
