A TV stand might not be at the top of the list when it comes to decorating your home, but it ought to be. After all, most of the other furniture in your living room is probably facing the TV. With all that attention, it stands to reason that your TV deserves something a little better than a stack of moving boxes, or worse, the floor. While TV stands seem like they consume a lot of space, they can actually help declutter by offering storage solutions for media players, gaming consoles, and that old DVD collection.
Style is one of the most important considerations when choosing a TV stand, but arguably your primary consideration should be size. TVs come in a lot of different sizes, so it’s worth investing in a media console that isn’t going to overshadow the TV. For the sake of aesthetics and stability, you don’t want a stand that is too small for the TV, either. And of course, the size and shape of the room is an important factor as well. Fortunately, Amazon makes it easy to find the right one for your style and budget. Consider it a way to elevate your viewing experience.
1. WE Furniture Classic Wood TV Stand, 58-Inch
This media console has 4 rectangular shelves, offering ample storage space. It’s less than 16″ deep, so it won’t take up too much space, either. It could even be put up in the corner. At the back of each shelf is a hole, which makes cable management easy. Plus, it’s available in a variety of finishes, including driftwood, charcoal, and black.
Pros: Clear instructions. Holes in the back make it easy to hide unsightly cables. Stand accommodates wide TVs but is thin enough for small spaces.
