Indulging in your favorite TV show while snuggled up on a sofa after a long day's work is truly unbeatable. To enhance your TV viewing experience in your living room, bedroom, or conservatory, it's essential to have not only the right TV but also the perfect TV unit to support it. However, before impulsively rushing to the nearest furniture store and making a hasty purchase that might result in an ill-fitting TV cabinet, it's important to take a step back and consider a few factors.
TV Unit Size:
When selecting a TV stand or unit for your home, there are three key aspects to keep in mind. Firstly, you should consider the size of your TV and the room where you intend to place it. Secondly, evaluate your storage requirements. Lastly, take into account the theme and décor of your space. In this article, EZ Living Furniture aims to address all of these factors and provide essential tips to help you choose the right TV support that suits your needs. So, whether you're dissatisfied with your current TV cabinet or embarking on your first purchase, continue reading for valuable insights.
TV Unit Height:
The size of your TV plays a significant role in determining which floor-standing TV stand is suitable. If the TV is too large for the accompanying TV unit, it won't receive adequate support and might easily topple or fall. On the other hand, if the TV cabinet is too large for your living room or bedroom, it can make the space feel cramped and smaller. That's why we always recommend thoroughly examining the measurements before making a purchase.
Optimal viewing height is crucial for a comfortable TV experience. Just as sitting at a computer with the screen positioned too high or too low can cause neck strain, the same applies to TVs. Generally, a floor-standing TV unit should be positioned lower than your couch or armchair, but not so low as to strain your neck over prolonged periods. Conversely, if a wall-mounted cabinet is placed too high on the wall, it can result in uncomfortable viewing and neck and head tension. To avoid this, take note of the desired viewing height before finalizing your decision on the TV stand.
The shape of the room also influences the choice of TV cabinet that best fits the space. In a large living room or bedroom, virtually any shape and size will work and look good, so there's no need to worry. However, if you have an oddly shaped or narrow living room, it can pose a challenge. In such cases, a corner TV unit is recommended as it can be pushed further back into the corner of the room compared to a stand with a straight edge.
