Modern wooden TV cabinets provide a good balance between display and storage.  You will be able to set up your flat screen TV on top of the cabinet and then store away additional devices and accessories inside the cupboard areas.  Wooden TV cabinets can be made of both real wood and laminate:

  • Real Wood – this type of TV stand can be an effective way to soften the impact of your modern television equipment in a more traditional style room.  You can buy a wide range of designs from conventional style wooden cabinets through to very modern open shelf designs.  Real wood furniture can add a touch of luxury to any room and will also be effective at storing and displaying television equipment.
  • Laminate Wood – these TV stands are available in several popular real wood effects such as maple, beech and oak. They offer a more affordable way to store and display your television equipment and will suit modern homes well.

Glass TV Stands

Glass TV stands are available from most television and furniture suppliers.  This is a popular option as glass is a modern material that looks good and is very durable. You can buy a wide range of glass TV stand designs including:

  • Ultra-modern black glass stands – if you have state-of-the-art home entertainment equipment then you can show it off with the latest black glass TV stands.  These look amazing in a modern style home and create a very stylish centrepiece to your living spaces.
  • Clear Glass – if you want your television equipment to fit more subtly into your rooms then you can choose the more conventional clear glass TV stands.  These are available in some attractive open shelf designs that save a lot of floor space by stacking your equipment safely.
