Just like the choice of your furniture, the choice of your television installation must be made with care. For everyday comfort and harmony with the decoration of your room, this choice must take into account a few essential criteria. Since you watch it several times a week, your television should be placed on furniture that will enhance it and make it practical to use. How can you optimise your purchase? Here are a few tips to help you find the TV furniture that suits your needs and requirements.
Choose a TV cabinet that will suit its location.
The dimensions of your TV cabinet must take into account its location. For a harmonious result, you will need to choose a piece of furniture that is longer than your TV set. So before choosing your furniture, you will need to find the place where you will place it. To enjoy optimal viewing, make sure that there is a distance of 3 to 5 metres between the seat and the screen. This can be the sofa, bed or armchair. It doesn’t matter what room you put it in or in what condition you place it. Your TV set should be at least 3 metres from where you are going to sit. As for the height of your furniture, your gaze in a seated position must reach halfway up the screen of your TV. Once the set has been placed on the piece of furniture, it must not be too high or too low, otherwise it will interfere with your comfort. If you have plenty of space, you will not be limited in your choice of TV furniture. If, on the other hand, your space is limited, a small piece of furniture is strongly recommended. For example, you can choose a small, shallow bench. Whichever style you choose, make sure it doesn’t take up all the space. Also make sure it is not too small, otherwise it will be useless and not suitable for your TV set.
Choose a TV cabinet with storage space
The TV cabinet is usually used mainly to hold the TV set, but nowadays it is a real storage unit. It can therefore be adapted to suit individual needs. Whether you like to play video games or collect books, a TV cabinet can be used to store your TV set and keep your many collections tidy. To avoid disturbing your eyes and those of your guests, consider choosing a closed or semi-closed cabinet. That is to say, with open and closed spaces at the same time. You will be able to display your decoration accessories and hide on the other hand the DVDs that you do not want to lend to anyone and that you want to keep safely out of sight. The drawer models are also very practical. You can use them to store the remote control or your game controllers. You can then quickly take them with you when you need them and avoid losing them in the bedroom or in another of your drawers. And if you are planning to add decorative elements such as vases or lights, we recommend choosing a model with a large tray.
Choose a sturdy and resistant material
In addition to the design of your TV cabinet, it must above all be robust. It would be a pity to buy a particularly chic and refined piece of furniture if it is not robust. This will force you to change furniture regularly and pay more than you could have imagined. To avoid this kind of expense, the best thing to do is to choose a model that is both attractive and robust. For example, you can choose a teak TV cabinet. Oak furniture is also prized for its longevity. They are more resistant but still elegant. If you like wood for its cosy look, you will love metal for its modern look. Whatever your preference, make sure the quality is there. Resistant materials are to be preferred. Also make sure you choose treated furniture. If you choose to install your furniture on wood, it must be treated with specific products against fungi and insects of all kinds. If it is made of metal, choose a piece of furniture treated with anti-rust products. Note that many models are made of both materials. Wood is chosen for its warm appearance and metal to reinforce the structure.
Choose a piece of TV furniture adapted to your interior decoration
The choice of your TV furniture is above all a question of aesthetics. In general, most buyers give preference to the design of the furniture over all other criteria. Their choices are based primarily on whether they like the model or whether it suits their interior. You will find different styles of TV furniture on the market. Some have a rounded shape, others are more asymmetrical. TV furniture on castors is also one of the many choices available. Whichever style you are interested in, make sure that it suits your interior design. For a chic and sober look, white stained wood models are de rigueur. If your decor reflects an image of luxury, more sophisticated models are preferable. If the room is small, nothing beats a neutral TV cabinet to make it more spacious. For example, you can choose a grey piece of furniture. Black is not recommended if the space is small. On the other hand, if your living room or bedroom is large, the choice depends on your tastes. Make sure, however, that its dimensions are appropriate for the room and the height of your television set.
Choose a TV cabinet that fits your budget
The last essential criterion to take into account when choosing your TV furniture is your budget. The price of a TV cabinet depends on several points. The material used to build it may have an impact on its final price. Some species are more expensive than others. The number of storage units can also affect the price of the furniture. The more storage units, the more expensive the piece of furniture will be. The same applies to its dimensions. It is obvious that a smaller piece of furniture is less expensive than a larger model. However, you don’t have to pay full price for your future TV cabinet to enjoy a good model. You will be able to find TV furniture in shops or on the Internet that is resistant, attractive and less expensive. All you need to do is do a little research and take the time to compare offers. Some private individuals offer to sell their TV furniture online at half price for various reasons. You may come across these ads and get a good deal. You can also wait for the sales. This will allow you to make a good saving. In short, you don’t have to buy a piece of TV furniture at an exorbitant price to enjoy a good model. Determine your budget in advance and look for a model that will allow you to respect it.
