The New Style Flat Panel TV Stands

Televisions have developed into a more sophisticated look: flat screens and plasmas. This prompted furniture makers to design TV stands that are more apt for the new sleek designs. More and more companies develop flat panel TV stands that match the elegance of plasma televisions. Like all furniture, these new TV stands come in all sorts of designs and materials. Some are made out of wood, some are made out of steel, some are made of plastic materials and some are made of a combination of the enumerated materials.

TV stand designs are made for almost every theme to suit your interior decorations. If you are living in an urban zone or home for you means an apartment or a condominium unit, it’s easier to find a design that would suit your home decorations because almost all of the designs fit urban home look. The best thing about living in an urban zone is the flexibility of the environment. Most of the time, urban homes are not as sophistically decorated as the suburban or rural homes where Victorian mansions or multiple-floor types are found. Steel, wooden, or plastic TV stands, therefore, would look just fine in an urban home.

The non-urban homes that are more elegantly decorated would be more suited with the sleek, wooden flat panel TV stands. Wood TV stands can easily blend with interior decorations in non-urban homes because it is in these homes where the “homey” feel and look are usually set. For instance, most non-urban homes are made out of a combination of concrete and wood. The interiors are usually done by professional interior decorators and redone every season.

These homes usually have stylish fireplaces, floorings, walls, curtains and furniture. Modern appliances such as television would look usually look out of place if it is not placed in a stand to match the well-designed place and wooden designs are more intricately designed than the steel and plastic counterparts. Hence, the wooden designs would look more appropriate in the urban zones.

TV stand designs can also be multi-purpose. Some TV stands double for a bookshelf. These types of designs would fit in a study room, a den, a home office or a bedroom perfectly. It would also serve to maximize space in smaller types of homes. There are also TV stand designs that are spacious enough to accommodate some television accessories like DVD players. Some would also have spaces for CDs and DVDs. The more innovative designs double as an office desk or are equipped with an electric fireplace.

The more intricate designs are not necessarily the most expensive. Usually, the more expensive ones are those that are made out of wood. Depending on what type of wood it is, the price range is usually $200-$1,500. The more expensive wooden materials are mahogany, amber pine and walnut. The more price-friendly wooden material is usually oak. Of course, those with the innovative designs also fall within the more expensive price range. Budget-friendly designs are usually the plastic and metal types that are not so intricately designed.
