The oak TV stand; a practical furniture alternative
When the television was invented around 100 years ago, who would of thought that it would
become such a focal point within the homes we live in. You can stand in anyones home over the
world and the TV is usually the centre piece of the main living area. The TV is positioned first
and the furniture is placed around it to make sure every seat has a good view of the screen.
Recent figures state that the average adult in the UK watches over 4 hours of some kind of
television a day, that is over a whole days viewing a week! The older we get the more often we
will choose to watch. During 2010 there were nearly 10 million televisions sets purchased in the
uk; equating to the average UK home now having 3 televisions.
Everyone has their own reason for watching, the twenty first century now offers many ways to
watch all types of programmes on our TV, we all have old film favourites in a cupboard and
through the use of a DVD player we can indulge in the comfort of something we know.
A monthly subscription through one of many digital subscription services is a brilliant way to
watch the best sports from all over the world, the latest football games, big golf matches and
tennis events. These type of services also offer films, from the latest blockbusters to our
childhood favourites that we love to go back to.
With the latest technology in watching in the form of curved screens and 3D viewing we can all
indulge in our TV habits better than we ever have. We can even add a surround sound system
to enhance the experience even more, grab the popcorn you can feel like you are at the cinema
in the comfort of your own home.
Once you have purchased the new television and it is going to be pride of place in your living
room, you do not want to put it on an old oak wooden side cupboard, oak table or TV cabinet.
Investing in a good quality wooden oak stand just enhances the look and overall viewing
Stands now come in all shapes and sizes with all types of finish that we desire and all have
different levels of complexity. High gloss ones are available for the modern look but for a more
traditional look many oak styles are available.
Stands are available with all different types of design features. Some have vertically adjusted
screen mounts and an ability to swivel the screen around for a better viewing angle, some are
finished with areas of anodized aluminum and you can even have glass shelves to add a modern
twist and compliment the classic look of the oak.
Stands come in two main types, either non wall mounted or wall mounted. The first allows you
to add drawers and cupboards. Many televisions are bought to be used in a kitchen and the
added storage can be extremely useful. Non wall mounted look good in main living areas as
they do not take too much floor space, but provide enough room to include everything you
If you really want to impress your friends, you can even have one which incorporates LED
lighting and illuminates the edges of the oak unit.
We all know that exercise is an integral part of our well being, but so is setting sometime aside
to relax and watch a film or catch up on some episodes of the latest soap. Shopping around will
find a TV stand based on your taste and needs.
