Corner TV Stand – Making the Right Choice
Posted on December 7th, 2011
Considering how busy and exhausting your everyday schedule is, the least you could do is pay a little more attention to the choices you make, like the corner TV stand.
It may not appear that important, but just think of it this way: you come home from work late in the afternoon, all sleepy or with a terrible headache, and since you missed you favorite team’s game, you just want to hear the briefing on the news; the sun shines outside and some of the rays fall directly on the screen, obstructing your view; or the stand is too low and you have to keep too many pillows under your neck to be able to see etc.
After an exhausting day, don’t you think you deserve to lie down in bed and watch whatever you wish with no interferences, from the position you find most comfortable, at any time of the day? It can’t be that difficult, can it?
The secret lies with the TV stand, its dimensions and its positioning. If the TV faces the window, the sun will always be a problem. If it is too low or too high, your neck will hurt from looking up or down all the time. If it is too close, your eyes will hurt, while a too great distance will prevent you from reading the subtitles.
So what is the best choice? A corner TV stand, of course!
But not just any TV stand – one that will match the rest of the furniture, the space in your room and the dimensions required in order to make watching TV as relaxing and entertaining as possible. The best thing of all is that, by placing it on the corner you not only save space, but you also use it wisely.
But before you start hunting for the best deals, let’s do this one exercise: take a pen, a piece of paper and a meter. Measure the space to know exactly how long and wide the TV stand should be. Measure the height as well, to make sure the stand is higher than the bed or the sofa, but not high enough to cause discomfort. Write down the dimensions.
Then take a look around you and write down the colors and the wood types it may have to match. You have to understand that buying the TV stand separately is not as simple as buying it as part of a set, which is why you may have to compromise.
For example, you may not find the exact color to match the rest of the furniture, but it could be the same essence with the parquetry, with the door, or a neutral color, like black.
You also have to take into account the space for the DVD or the shelf speakers if you intend to use any. Adjustments can be made, but since there are so many wonderful models available out there, it would be a shame not to buy the perfect corner TV stand on your first attempt, don’t you think?
