Gina Rizzo. Corner TV Stand. November 11th , 2020.
If you take your television viewing pretty seriously you don’t want to have your TV set stuck in the corner of your room. If you use the sound directly from the TV the sounds get trapped in the corner. And if you use external sound it makes it tough to get the speakers positioned right, unless you have a huge room, in which case you won’t have your TV in the corner. It also makes the location of your furniture odd and potentially uncomfortable and offers you a poor view of your screen.
Compare those big, bulky sets to today’s televisions and you will see big changes. Today’s televisions are designed to fit in with the more modern design styles of our homes, no matter how large or small. The flat TV screen revolutionized designer opportunities for integrating the television into any home regardless of the decor style or theme.
There are many ways to go about making your living room entertainment center look like it’s part of the actual living room. The recent burst of flat-screen television has made TV stands all the more popular. Let’s face it you cannot buy a new 50-inch plasma TV and then set it on some old beat-up wooden or for that matter plastic TV stand. It would only make the TV look like it doesn’t belong in your home and your friends wouldn’t want to see that when football season rolls around. Since most entertainment centers from the past only house up to about a 30 or 35 inch TV you have to go with a TV stand to house your new plasma television set.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a house built to their expectations, very few get lucky enough to have that chance myself included. So unfortunately we have to settle for our existing room set up the way it is and that’s not very often conducive to a large flat-screen TV. So to improvise we have to come up with a way to make the TV not look out of place in the room and if you’re like me the corner of the room is the best place to get the maximum benefit out of utilizing the whole room. Corner TV stands are the best way to go about making that happen and supporting my flat panel TV.
Entertainment furniture has also changed a lot over the years, with furniture companies scrambling to build a variety of models to suit the needs of consumers. For rooms that are short on space but still want to feature a television, corner TV stands are an obvious solution.
When they came on the scene, television was not simply a piece of electronics. It was a piece of furniture in its own right. The screen was built into the furniture. In our current market, this would be known as a console television set. For many years, this was how we expected televisions to look. At the time, even having a television was a luxury. To even own such a cutting edge piece of equipment was such status. The television set held a central spot in your living room. Living rooms needed to be sizable to accommodate such a large item. Televisions were anything but sleek. The entire decor had to focus around the televisions set.
Remember those bulky old television units that held the massive TVs of days gone by? Where the TV holding area was made specifically for TVs that had more body then screen? For a long time, there was no alternative to this type of set up. If you wanted to house your TV in anything that looked remotely decent it would need to be in the center of the room and you would require a relatively large amount of space for it to compliment the design of the room. Nowadays we have Plasma and LCD screens which don’t require vast amounts of space or large cabinets that look out of place. Manufacturers have come up with alternative designs and have introduced corner TV stands.
