WHAT STYLES OF TV UNIT ARE AVAILABLE AT HABITAT?
The TV unit - something so functional, yet with such a strong need to look good. Why? Well, don’t most households look in its direction more than anywhere else? Exactly.
But every TV, and home, is different. The beauty of most TV stands and units often lies in the fact that they blend seamlessly into the background, making the TV screen the focal point for eyes. Sometimes though, it’s good to go with a statement design too. After all, just because it has a purpose doesn’t mean it can’t look pretty too.
At Habitat we have every kind of TV stand that could possibly be required. From TV stands with drawers and shelves, ideal for storing the remote control and DVDs, to corner TV stands, units of different sizes, and styles that range from traditional to modern. With so much choice, it’s easy to find your perfect stand - saving any drama for the TV itself.
WHAT SIZE OF TV STAND OR AV UNIT DO YOU NEED?
The notion of measuring for your TV stand might seem simple, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. For example, experts say that for maximum comfort the middle of your screen should be at, or slightly below, your eye level. Calculate this height by using a tape measure, beginning at your usual viewing position. Then, to find out if your desired unit will bring your TV to the right level, simply check the dimensions listed on its product page.
That takes care of things from a health point of view (slumping at the wrong height can’t be good for anyone) but what about style-wise? How big is your TV? If it's a tiny portable design then it may just need a small TV stand, but if it’s slightly on the super-sized side, then a large TV unit is the only way to go. Having said that, just because it’s a large TV doesn’t mean your stand need be. TVs today tend to be so slim and light, a compact, thoroughly modern unit may well be the way to go.
