If you are looking to purchase a new TV stand in Singapore, you will be keen to make sure that you get something that not only looks great but is practical too. You may want a static or a mobile stand with TV mobile stands proving increasingly popular for those living in smaller homes or for use in office blocks. When choosing your TV stand, you want to make sure you select a stand that meets all your expectations. Here are our five tips for selecting a TV stand in Singapore.
1. Think Style and Practicality!
Most people’s main TV is in their living room, a place where you spend a lot of time. You want your stand to blend in with your existing décor and not look out of place. If you opt for a large TV, they can take up a considerable amount of space in your room. Think about where you place your TV, not only for the comfort of viewing but also, so it doesn’t take up too much space. If you live in a smaller property, would a TV mobile stand be more practical?
Another factor that needs some serious consideration is the weight of the TV. Although modern TVs are considerably lighter than older models, you will need to ensure that your TV stand is capable of supporting the weight. It is particularly relevant if you a considering a wall bracket. Wall brackets offer excellent mobility to enhance the viewer’s experience, but they can be put under substantial strain with larger TVs. Always, check that your wall bracket and the wall itself can support the weight.
2. The material of the TV Stand
The materials that you choose will be heavily influenced by other furniture in your room. In some properties, your TV stand in Singapore may look great in hardwood such as teak, while in others it may seem totally out of place. Metal, glass and MDF are frequently used, but again the weight and size of the TV need to be taken into account. Also, the size of your TV stand should be considered, does it look out of place with everything else in your room?
A TV mobile stand may be again worth considering if you have a small room with the most practical and most durable options being made from metal. Remember that although you want something aesthetically pleasing, you must also choose a durable material.
3. Your Overall Lifestyle Needs
While you may be an avid TV watcher, do you really want your living room to be entirely focused around your TV? If you enjoy entertaining guests, a TV stand that fills the majority of the room simply won’t match your lifestyle needs. Also, if the stand is poorly position or too big, do you always want to be walking around the TV to get to your sofa?
It may be wise to also think about having a cabinet with storage space such as for table clothes and other household items, a serious consideration if space is an issue. Your overall lifestyle needs to be taken into account to ensure that your TV stand meets your requirements and doesn’t become a headache in your life!
4. Placement of Other Furniture
Your TV stand will only form an element of the furniture in your room, so other furniture needs to be taken into account. Firstly, don’t get a TV cabinet that is too large meaning that you can’t comfortably fit other furniture in the room. It would be best if you then considered viewing distances and the height of the stand for comfortable and safe viewing from other items of furniture. When seated, your eyes should naturally focus around midway up the TV screen for your comfort so arrange your TV stand and furniture accordingly. Reflections and comfortable seating angles should also be assessed.
5. Decorations Such as Photos and Ornaments
As we have discussed, when choosing a TV stand in Singapore, you want it to be in keeping with your current lifestyle. If you have plenty of photographs and ornaments around your home, you may wish to choose a cabinet style TV stand. It will mean that you have room for your keepsakes and ensure that your TV stand matches with the rest of your property. If you prefer more of a minimalist design, you may opt for something that is more compact or even a TV mobile stand.
