TV Stands and Media Cabinets Buying Guide

When televisions first entered our living rooms, they were housed in handsome cabinets that became focal-point furniture pieces. As time went by, televisions broke free from the cabinets as they changed shape, size, and weight, and we could place them anywhere we wanted. Now, with large, flat screens dominating our spaces, the need to present the television in an important piece of furniture has returned. Media cabinets and TV stands have evolved to meet those needs. They are better-looking and more functional than their predecessors.

Types of TV Stands and Media Cabinets

Types of TV Stands and Media Cabinets

A TV stand is a basic piece of furniture designed specifically to support the television. A cabinet has sides and a back (and often built-in storage) and comes in a variety of widths and heights. Here's a rundown of the types of TV stands and media cabinets you'll encounter as you shop.

TV Stands

Although you'll see the term media cabinet applied to these pieces of furniture, a TV stand is in fact a basic platform or cube on legs that supports a television. Typically it does not have a back or sides, but it often has a shelf or shelves built into it to house gaming consoles or video components. TV stands come in a variety of heights and widths, which should correspond with the television you're buying the stand for. The two pieces should function as one unit for looks and stability.

Media Cabinets

A media cabinet is a more elaborate piece of furniture than the basic stand. The cabinet, also called a console or credenza, has a finished back and sides. Many also have finished doors, shelves, cubbies, or drawers. A media cabinet usually has holes for cables and cords, and it may have cord storage and a surge protector built in. Some cabinets are made to reside under a wall-mount television, and they will not have visible cord holes.

Platforms

Similar to a TV stand, a platform is a minimal piece of furniture that has no back. It may not even have sides or shelves. Some platforms rest on legs on the floor, and some are mounted to the wall to float above the floor.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Here is important safety and design information to help you sort out the best TV stand or media cabinet for your home.

Size

If the television is too big for a TV stand or media console, it can topple off. The stand should be at least as deep as the television. Most stands are about 18 inches deep, but you'll need a deeper one if you have an older-model CRT TV. In general, the stand should be at least as wide as the outer width of the television frame (not the screen width). In design terms, the pieces look their best when the stand is in scale with the television. For the best presentation, the units should form a pyramid, with the stand measuring about a third wider than the TV. As for height, the rule of thumb is that the bottom third of the screen should be in line with your sight line when you hold your head at a comfortable angle. People shouldn't have to crane their necks to watch the game.

Storage

Of course you want a TV stand that holds your television. But you may also have cable boxes, satellite cables, DVD players, and gaming consoles to accommodate. There are myriad remotes and spare cables to tuck away. And then there are the DVDs and game boxes to keep handy. Take these items into account when picking out the TV stand or media cabinet. If you want them hidden, you'll need a unit with drawers and cabinets. If you don't mind them on display, a TV stand with open shelves is fine. If you have a home with small children, you may want to be able to lock the cabinet doors, and you'll want drawers with drawer stops, which prevent them from being pulled out all the way -- a tempting climb for toddlers.

Maneuverability

Consider sight lines in the room when you are choosing a TV stand or media cabinet. Will the TV be viewed from one central location, such as a sofa, or from various points in the room? You may want a turntable for the TV so it can be rotated as needed. If the TV is mounted to the back of the unit, choose a bracket that tilts, pulls out, and swivels.

Safety

Televisions are top-heavy, particularly when placed on a piece of furniture and tipping becomes a hazard. The mounting and stabilization of the television is paramount to the purchasing decision. Will the TV be mounted to the back of the unit in a hutch? What kind of bracket is used, and what weight will it support? If the TV will sit atop the cabinet or stand, it will have to be secured to the wall or the back of the furniture piece. Stores that sell media equipment or baby gear offer kits that anchor the television safely.
