If you’ve been jumping rental-to-rental (or don’t want to put holes in your walls), wall-mounting your television isn’t an option. The good news is, there are tons of nice-looking TV stands out there; available in styles to match just about any living room, a good stand will keep your electronics supported and your decor on-point. TV stands are an easy commitment to set up for your television, and will turn the area to a dedicated cable hub without investing in an expensive entertainment center.
Keeping Your New TV Safe And Secure
It seems unfortunate, but if you have a TV, 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. 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 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. Even the most simple and basic television stand will get the job done.

There is also the distinct advantage of a TV stand that it doesn’t require a wall to be functional. Have an odd-shaped living room? A TV stand will let you place your TV where a wall mount wouldn’t work, like against a window or in a corner. Plus, if you end up moving your furniture around to improve your space? You won’t have to go through the process of detaching and reattaching your television to get the best viewing angle. Not to mention you won’t have to fix the holes from the old spot it and repaint.

TV Stands With Hidden Storage
Another benefit of TV stands is that they provide extra storage for your living room. Coffee tables tend to be a catch-all for everything that enters the living room, which can look cluttered and disorganized. A TV stand with extra storage can go a long way toward keeping that clutter tucked away and looking neat. You’ll still use your coffee table, but a good TV stand can hide less-used items, like spare remotes or controllers.

TV Stands With Faux Wall Mounts
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. This avoids the pitfalls of wall-mounting while still getting the benefits of both display options. You’ll 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 your stand’s surface.
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.
