What is the Right Style and Size of a TV Unit

A traditional sitting room can be overwhelmed by the sleek, contemporary feel of a modern flatscreen TV, and the neatest room can suffer from the profusion of cables and wires that often come as standard with home entertainment furniture. But it doesn’t have to be this way: by picking the right piece for you, you can use your TV unit to harmonise your sitting room and bring an old-fashioned sense of calm to your surroundings.


A new media unit might inspire a whole new look for your lounge, so make sure you keep an open mind when searching, and you may find a piece that leaps out at you, letting you get creative with the style of your home.

Corner and Curved TV Units

Deciding on a corner TV unit means you have more choice in where you place your TV so everyone can enjoy it. Of course, a corner unit is versatile enough to be used in other positions not just the corner of a room although you may need to move the furniture around. A corner TV stand is a space-saving option as well as a practical solution for your living room design. The changing shape of televisions has also seen the arrival of curved TV stands. Their rounded design and smooth concave frontage is the perfect match for the smooth curvature of a slim screen.

Buying a TV Cabinet with Doors

One of the questions to ask yourself is, do you want to display your TV or do you want to hide it away? While most TV cabinets offer a sturdy platform for your home cinema, some come with doors so that when you are not watching, you can forget about your TV, so the kids can grow up in a TV-free environment. But for a TV in constant use folding back doors to view may be a step too far. TV stands with soft close doors can instead be an added feature keeping everything neat and tidy while supporting a sublime new flat screen on top.

TV Units with Storage
Media storage is still a requirement despite the rise of on-demand tv and online streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. Even the latest ultra thin LED TVs, curved and OLED TVs with their crystal clear images oozing from the screen need a home for all the TV accessories. Buying a TV cabinet is one way of solving the clutter problem plus it’s also a nice addition to the room where you can keep things like the remote control handy.

Contemporary Designs

New designs on TV stands come in all shapes and sizes including rectangular, oval, curved, elliptic and modular. They are capable of supporting screen sizes of up to 80 inches but most importantly a television stand keeps all your technologies in one place. Media units come with at least one shelf but you may find you need extra storage if you are still using DVDs and Blu-Ray discs.

Easy Access to Cables
Whether it’s a flat-packed TV unit or ready assembled furniture they are both perfect solutions for storage and tidy cable management. Many of TV units are designed with room at the back to keep the cables in order and neatly hidden away which is one of the main benefits of installing a corner TV unit. Whichever you choose, though, you’ll need to make sure that it has proper access at the back for your cables, so that they don’t have to snake over the unit. If there are no access holes, you could drill some yourself or hire a carpenter, but it’s best to find a piece that is designed to help you keep your lounge tidy.

There’s really no limit on how stylish you can go in creating a truly stunning focal point. Whatever your particular taste, make sure you use your creativity to find the perfect piece for your home, and remember – no matter what the piece of furniture, it can always be a bold and refreshing style statement.

Dark Wood Media Units

If your living space is home to traditional rich tones of dark wood, it makes sense to buy a TV stand to match. Dark wooden TV units will really set off your home decor and compliment your existing style and room layout. So if you have a state-of-the-art flatscreen TV then all you need is to choose the style from the many TV units available. This may seem a little daunting so first decide on where you want to display your TV and whether you want to completely match your furniture or compliment the television design instead. Contemporary designs can give the best of both with ornate or minimalistic features in a mix of wood, metal and glass.

The combination of clear glass offers a pristine finish and looks equally good when combined with light or dark wood features. Brands such as Greenapple, Alphason, Munari, Off the Wall and AVF boasts a modern range of non-scratch tempered glass TV stands.
