As the focal point of your home, a media set-up should be displayed and styled to your taste. The right console is crucial and a custom TV stand is a great feature to your living space. Our design consultants have gathered the best tips to help you select the right media set-up to your taste and size of TV.
Keep it visually balanced
If you’re looking to select the ideal size console for your media the most basic guideline is to make sure that you have at least a few inches (if not feet) larger than the base of your television. This allows your TV ample space to rest comfortably on the top. Allowing room for decor and styled items makes your media setup appear more aesthetically balanced.
The dimensions of both the console and the TV have a significant impact on aesthetics. At Norse we use the Best series by The Antiques Furniture to create completely customized media consoles. This Best collection is a personal favorite of ours due to its amazing range of options. You can choose how many doors you require and the height of the finish, the pattern legs, as well as hardware. TVs smaller than 43″ are best suited to the two-door unit. A triple door unit appears most proportional for TVs that are in the 50″ and 70″. Choose a four-door model or more if you own televisions that are greater that 75″
Compliment the room layout
The choice of a comfortable height for viewing is equally important. The ideal location is determined by the size of your couch or chairs. If you want a more individual or customized configuration, check your eye’s height when sitting and ensure that the center of the television isn’t beyond your vision. A smaller or unnaturally shaped room does not mean you must put off the TV you’ve always wanted. Even if you put the TV without a stand Wall consoles are useful for adding storage to the space.
Organization is everything
Making sure your TV stand is free of cables and clutter is among the best ways to display your television. Choose a stand for your TV that has storage space to store magazines or media and search for models with a tabletop that is large in case you wish to display some decorative décor to displays. The larger entertainment centers are great for organizing multiple electronics in a small, central place. TV stands Dubai such as the Best models with cutouts for cords can help you hide cables and make your room look neat. Pick between open shelves or closed cabinets as well as drawers using Best from The Antiques Furniture according to your preference and storage needs.
Stay within your color palette
There are some exceptions to the rule when you are adding a statement piece however, the furniture you choose to add to your living room must be a part of your preferred color scheme to maintain a consistent style throughout the room. The larger pieces, like media consoles, must be considered in relation to the dimensions and lighting of the room, too. Select neutrals that are light white, light gray to make your room appear more spacious and bright. The darker tones and the bold, deep hues look stunning however they take up more space, so make sure that you have enough space to not look like it’s crowded.
