Do the words “TV stand” bring to mind an image of a basic ugly shape made up of some kind of cheap material? Do they make you think of solid pieces of furniture that take up precious space and fulfil no other function than to provide a resting place for a television? If so, then you should take a look at what’s on the market these days.
Designers in recent years have really started to put some thought into how a TV stand should look, and the role that it should play in modern living. No longer is your television supported by little more than a table on four long legs. These days television stands are pieces of furniture in their own right, and are created by professionals who take pride in their workmanship. These craftsmen understand that people who spend money on a TV stand want it to look good as well as provide a surface upon which the TV can stand.
One of the most elegant materials currently used is glass. A glass TV stand may be in ordinary glass, or black glass, either one of them bringing subtle sophistication to your room. Usually the glass will be complimented by wood or chrome, and the choice of this is what can really set off the rest of the décor in the room. Wood with glass works better in a traditional or country style room, whereas a modern or luxurious room may work better with a chrome and glass TV stand.
If you like the idea of a glass TV stand, but are worried about buying one because you have children in the house, then you should know that these TV stands are made from toughened safety glass and aren’t as easy to break as you might at first think. If you’re still unsure however, you don’t have to have a TV stand that’s mostly made from glass to enjoy the visual benefits. Instead you can have one that uses glass elements but has another material as its main material. The glass component in these TV stands could be doors, drawer fronts or shelves.
Whereas a wood TV stand may seem dated in a room that has an otherwise modern décor, a glass TV stand will enhance the rest of the furniture. If you aren’t wall mounting your plasma TV, a glass TV stand is the perfect choice to show your high tech TV off to its best advantage.
When you’re ready to replace your TV stand, or you want to update the décor of your home, consider a glass TV stand. You might be amazed at the difference it can make to the room.
