How to Pick a TV Stand To Suit Your Lifestyle Needs

 

TVs are an integral part of most people’s lives in Singapore. The TV is often the focal point within most of our living rooms, so finding an appropriate TV stand in Singapore is vital. The range of options available has increased significantly in recent years and has vastly changed from the bulky wooden cabinets that we were all familiar with during the 1970s and 80s. When it comes to TV stand installation in Singapore, here at Tiger Mount, we have a wide range of solutions to suit your house, condo, apartment or even business.

Why You Need a TV Stand

Modern TVs are far slimmer than older models that used to be freestanding. Almost all modern TVs are unable to stand unassisted. Flat-screen TVs can be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted or have a TV stand, meaning that they can be placed on a table for other pieces of furniture that you may have in your home. Choosing a TV stand in Singapore is mainly down to personal preference and the layout of your home, but here are some things that you should take into consideration.

Size of TV Stand

The first thing that must be considered is the size of the TV. There is no point having a small stand if it is entirely the wrong size for your TV. TV screens are measured diagonally from corner to corner. This measurement won’t include any bevel that may be around the screen, so it is a good idea to measure this yourself. Knowing the size of your TV is essential when it comes to TV stand installation in Singapore.

Remember, if you have a 42” TV, this is only the size of the screen, but you also need to be aware of the size of the frame and the depth of the TV. You will also need to measure the table or cabinet on which the TV will sit. There should be at least 5cm free to front, back and sides of the TV and stand and the TV shouldn’t sit too close to the wall which may cause overheating.

Other factors that should be taken into account are that you shouldn’t be sitting too close to the screen, and ideally, you should be at least 2 metres away.

Different Types of Stand

There are various types of TV stand in Singapore which are available. As we have touched upon, ceiling mounts and wall mounted stands are popular and are frequently used as modern space-saving devices to excellent effect. However, in terms of TV stands, there are two real options:

Mobile TV Stand

Mobile TV stands are perfect for businesses where the TV used may need to be moved between rooms to give presentations. But besides professional settings, you could consider getting a mobile TV stand if you have elderly parents they may need the television moved around from them!

At Tiger Mount, we have six different mobile TV stands. Our stands range in height from 1.4 metres to 1.8 metres. Our smaller models are more suited for TVs between 32 inches and 65 inches while our heavy-duty mobile TV stand is capable of housing TVs up to 100 inches and a weight of over 90kg.

Table TV Stands

Table TV stands are what we would more commonly associate with those found in homes all around Singapore. Although their name suggests that they are only suited to tables, they can, of course, sit on any flat and stable item of furniture assuming that there is enough room. Our stands come in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large. The small table TV stands are suitable for TVs that are between 26 inches and 32 inches while our extra-large models can safely house TVs measuring up to 75 inches. We love the fact that a lot of TV stands are aesthetically pleasing and also complement any room’s existing décor.
