TVs today are a lot different from what our parents and grandparents were used to having before. Because the society and culture at that time was so much different from today, the furniture, home décor and other home furnishings definitely reflected the kind of design that was in style during that era.
Nearly a hundred years ago, the television sets were huge freestanding cabinets that hid the TV’s mechanisms and cables while the screen was seen at the upper part of the cabinet. These days, this is what we call TV consoles. This elegant and classic design can still be purchased today from some of the finest manufacturers of TV cabinets and TV stands. You can visit your local appliance center or furniture store or look at the many online sites that make and sell wood furniture.
Because the bulky TV was the focal point of any living room in the early days, the TV stands and cabinets they used took up so much space. Today, you can now buy thin and narrow TVs that can be placed in smaller spaces and can even be hung from a wall. This is where corner TV stands come in.
Corners in any room are sometimes considered useless space. But it need not be like that. Corner spaces can be properly utilized by placing appropriate furniture like a TV stand. Because TVs are now slick and thin, you can get a customized TV stand that doesn’t take up a lot of space and place it against a corner. Furniture designers have seen the potential of using these small spaces, especially in small apartments in big cities like in New York for instance. Now, even if you only have a small space in your room or apartment, you can still have your dream LCD TV and TV stand without taking up so much space, by utilizing the corner of your room.
Thanks to your corner TV stand, you can now use the extra available space in your apartment for something else, like a coffee table perhaps, or an area where you can do your yoga and meditation. The possibilities are endless. All thanks to the use of corner TV stands.
