Choosing the right TV stand can be quite the challenge. Not only are you looking for it to compliment your TV but also the other furniture in your room. As the way we watch television constantly changes, so too does the added paraphernalia that comes with it, not to mention our pet-hate: cables. But a TV unit to house your ever-increasing ‘entertainment system’ doesn't have to compromise your style. Habitat has a huge range of units to satisfy your tech and trend-led needs. From slatted closed cupboards (so, cleverly, the remote still works), open shelving options, handle-free doors and the all-important cable management, great design and stylish looks can both be ticked off your list.
Choosing a TV unit
Good planning is key to choosing the right TV stand.
Consider the space in which your TV will be situated. Make sure you cover all angles, width and dimensions of the area available.Another important factor is weight; make sure the TV stand you choose can accommodate the width and
weight of your TV. Take your time and compare TV stands carefully. To ensure that the TV fits on the stand safely and correctly, you want to be looking for a TV stand roughly 20% longer in length than your TV.Also look at how many consoles you are looking to store. Take note of their individual dimensions so you know they’ll fit.
We offer mainly bench style AV units – these are compact, space efficient and lower to the ground. We offer a wide range of lengths so that you can find a unit to fit your television size.
At Habitat we have various materials for TV units. Our most used material is wood. Wood is a highly durable material that will stand the test of time. Oak’s inherently natural appearance will compliment all types of room styles and is a safe buy. We also have lacquered/coloured TV units. These have more a playful look and are just as long lasting.All of our TV units offer some form of storage whether that comes in the form of a shelf, drop down door front or sliding door. These will all provide different amounts of storage dependant on your needs. Storage and practicality is really important to us whilst also maintaining a simple and contemporary design concept.
Dust with a dry cloth. Remove marks with a weak washing up solution. Don’t use polish. Refer to all our assembly instruction online for weight limit on our TV units.Make sure you position your TV as centrally as possible to balance out the weight.
Accessorising your TV unit
The best thing to pair with your TV and TV unit is one of our fabulous sofas. We offer a vast range of sofas to fit every home. We also have a great range of footstools and poufs to put your feet up on whilst you watch TV.
