  • Buying A TV Stand for Your New LCD, LED or Plasma TV, Which Suits Your Room Aesthetics

    When choosing your TV furniture it is important to consider the surroundings, ideally you want your TV stand to accommodate all of your AV equipment in style without sacrificing functionality. It is always critical you purchase a TV stand which can support the weight of your LCD, LED or Plasma television and also offers sufficient cable management to keep all wiring under control.

    Once you have satisfied this criteria you can then move onto thinking about the styling of the TV stand or TV cabinet. When purchasing TV stands for LCD TV's it is critical that you consider the interior design of your living room. The first thing to think about is what kind of floor you have, companies like iFlooring, one of the few laminate flooring companies in Londonprovide a database of flooring information to help you the customer, make the most informed choice regarding products and suppliers. Once the flooring is decided you need to make sure your TV stand matches, if you have a walnut floor have a look at Walnut TV cabinets.

    Also consider who lives in your household, if you have pets or children a cantilever TV stand may make more sense because the TV will be suspended in the air away from inquisitive fingers or paws respectively. If you have low seating you may be better off with a two shelf TV stand so you are not looking up at the TV screen. Those who are challenged for space may find a corner TV stand a sensible option as it tucks deep into the corner of the room saving space.

  • The Best TV Stands of 2009

    We are now approaching the end of 2009, it may be remembered as a year of financial hardship and woe but here at Big AV we would rather take a more positive look and in this post we will be nominating some of the most innovative and interesting TV stands worthy of being classed as the best TV stands of 2009.

    Glass TV Stands-

    As the bread and butter of the TV furniture industry glass TV stands make up a large proportion of TV furniture so which ones provide the best style and value for money?

    The portability GT-7 combines a stylish corner shape design with good quality toughened safety glass, available as a clear glass and silver stand, black glass with chrome or as an all black TV stand the portability GT-7 is an ideal budget solution and we don't think there is anything as stylish and dependable for such a small sum of cash.

    Cantilever TV Stands-

    The cantilever TV stand market has come on leaps and bounds through 2009, old favourites like the Stil Stuk 2053 CHBL still present excellent value for money, the clear glass Stil Stuk 2053 now has stiff competition from the budget Alphason AA-2G-BR which is a fabulous budget option with a swivel facility, Alphason have also enjoyed great success with the Iconn ST600 and the BDI Vista is a sensational high end option, but all in all we think the best blend of value, style and quality is provided by the Aquila at just £249.99 this beautiful TV stand looks a lot more expensive than it really is and make a superb home for the latest ranges of flat televisions and with a class leading cable management system the Aquila cantilever TV stand will really take some beating in 2010.

    TV Cabinets-

    2009 was the year of TV cabinets, when flat panel TV's came into the market glass TV stands were modern, trendy and cool and the TV cabinet was seen as old fashioned, that has all changed now with the release of some ultra smart TV cabinets from US manufacturers BDI and Salamander Designs as both have released inspirational designs, the Wenge wood finish of the Salamander designs berlin cabinets looks superb, for anyone who is interested in one of these we have one in our Huddersfield showroom, it is well worth taking a look as the finish looks much better in real life than on a picture, our favourite TV cabinet of 2009 is the glossy BDI Marina, combining modern styling and contemporary features the BDI Marina has been a roaring success as a high end home for your LED, LCD or Plasma TV.

    So that's what we think, let us know what you think, have we missed any killer products, is there a brand that we have not mentioned you think offer superb value or design?

    2010 will see the release of even more quality products including the release of ultra slim wall brackets, more closed Hifi racks and a whole range of cinema seating.
