Lastly, you need to decide where you're going to purchase your TV stand. Going online can be a great way to look for and purchase a stand or entertainment center. You can view a wide variety of stands, you can check measurements, and you can have it shipped directly to you.
Most TV stands specify a maximum weight in addition to maximum width for the flat panel TV's they can accommodate. You should be careful about the weight specification though. Some manufacturers specify the total weight including all shelves that a stand can handle and some will specify just the weight of the TV, which means the weight that the top of the TV stand can withstand.
TV stands have come a long way since the clunky models of yore. Whether or not one is enamored with the sleek minimalist design of many stands nowadays, there is a lot to be said for understatement. Black oak wood stands can strike the perfect balance between classic design and modern finish. For a sleeker look, opt for a stand which has no box shelving whatsoever, creating the impression that the electronics pieces are virtually floating in mid-air. Any modern design will welcome a stand like this. The same can be said for stands using piano black glass shelving, which hide unsightly wiring at the same time.
Since traditional or CRT televisions tend to be heavier than other types of TVs, TV stands and entertainment centers intended to display and store conventional tube TVs are designed to accommodate the weight. A CRT TV stand can essentially be used for any other type of television, such as plasma or LCD, because they are generally lighter than conventional televisions.
To decide which kind will meet your specific needs, first determine the main purpose of the TV stand: is it to display the TV, organize components and DVDs or to maximize the available floor space?
