For many of you who have been jumping rental-to-rental (or who just don’t want to put large holes in your walls), wall-mounting your television isn’t an option when setting up your entertainment area. You could set your TV up on a spare table you have laying around, or you can get yourself a dedicated TV stand, keeping your electronics supported and your decor on-point. In multiple neutral colors to match just about any living room, TV stands are an easy commitment to set up for your television that also turns the area to a dedicated cable hub without investing in an expensive entertainment center.

It seems unfortunate, but you can’t not have a television stand or a wall-mount. Placing your TV on the floor leaves it at a bad angle to your couch and remote to watch your favorite shows. It also can be a hazard if you have pets, children, or just are a little clumsy (like me, who will step on anything I set down on the floor). A TV is a pricey piece of equipment that will last you years of frequent use, so the best way to protect it is to keep it at least knee-height off the ground with even the most simple and basic television stand.

There is also the distinct advantage of a TV stand that it doesn’t require a wall to be functional. Place your television against a window or an open area without the hassle of your house structure dictating where you can watch TV. If you end up moving your furniture around to improve your space, you won’t have to go through the heavy process of detaching and reattaching your television to get the best angle for viewing, and not requiring you to fix the holes from the old spot it was and repaint.

Another benefit of TV stands is that they provide extra storage for your living room. In my experience, the living room coffee table tends to end up a catch-all for everything that enters the room, which can make it look cluttered and disorganized. A TV stand with some extra storage can go a long way in keeping that clutter tucked away and looking neat so the coffee table doesn’t have to be the only place to set down your things.

Due to the continuous technological advances in how we experience entertainment, you may end up with a lot of living room gadgets that need storing and a surface to stay on when plugged into your telly. Your Blu-Ray and DVD players, game systems, router, extra remotes, and all your other wired tech can all find a house in a TV stand with sufficient storage. That way, everything for the TV is right next to the TV, making it easier to plug in devices when you want to use them. This will also keep all your various cords from sticking out and getting tangled together when not in use, as they can be simply placed in a drawer.

Still want to wall-mount your TV after all this? Some TV stands have an attached vertical surface that acts like a wall specifically to attach your television to, avoiding the pitfalls of wall-mounting while still getting the benefits of both display options. You will have much more control over the height and angle of your television than with other types of TV stands. It’s a modern style that’s sure to catch your guests’ attention, and lets you maximize the use of your stand’s surface area.
The practicality of TV stands allows you a lot more creative freedom when planning your living room than the alternative of wall-mounting. While a stand can’t save you space like a wall mount can, the right one can add storage and style to your home as well as a place for your TV.
