TV Stand FAQ

Welcome to

Below you will find some FAQ's related to TV stands as well as other media related questions.

Is it better to wall mount a TV or put it on a stand?

This comes down to personal preference but also the type of TV stand that you have. Some people prefer to have their TV wall mounted purely for the aesthetics and clean look that it offers.

While for other people, wall mounting a TV is essential, for example their TV stand may not be suitable to bear the load of their television set. On the other hand, many people prefer to have their TV placed on a stand purely for convenience.

Furthermore, it opens up your living space giving the illusion of your room being bigger.

How tall should a TV stand be?

Deciding on how tall a TV stand should be comes down to a few different factors.

  • The height of your couch
  • The size of your room
  • Whether your TV will be wall mounted

Ultimately, you will want your TV to be at the perfect height for optimal viewing position so as not to strain your neck or become uncomfortable.

How big should your TV stand be?

When deciding on how big your TV stand should be, the main thing you will need to consider is the size of your television set. You don't want a TV that overhangs the sides of your stand, but at the same time you also don't want a stand that is much bigger than your TV, this will just look wrong. But be sure to take into account if you are planning on purchasing a different sized TV in the near future.
