The Best TV Unit Sizes For Better Entertainment

It’s not easy to integrate your television into the aesthetic of a living room or bedroom, but an exquisite television stand gives you the chance to do just that.

The trick is to get a TV stand that matches your television as well as the rest of your room’s dcor and furnishings. A large screen on a small TV stand might be dangerous, and a TV unit that’s too big for your TV can appear weird. Finding a TV stand that suits the decor of your space is just as crucial.

This TV stand size guide will teach you everything you need to know about selecting the proper size and style of television stand for your home.

Step 1: Measure the real width of your television.

To ensure that you select a console tables that will accommodate your television, you must first determine the size of the television it will accommodate.

The diagonal measurement of a television screen—the distance between one top corner and the opposing bottom corner—is frequently promoted. A 65-inch TV, for example, has a diagonal width of 65 inches from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.

This measurement isn’t very useful if you’re looking for a TV stand that fits your TV; instead, you’ll need the width and height of your TV. The size of a television varies based on the brand, the frame size, and other factors.

The general 16:9 dimensions of common TV sizes can be found in the chart below.

How to Determine the Size of Your Television

Because there are no genuine standard dimensions for televisions, you’ll get the most accurate results by taking your own measurements.

Get a measuring tape and a pen and paper or a gadget to record the measurements.

1. Determine the width of your television, taking into account the frame that surrounds the screen.

2. Take a measurement of the overall height of your television, including the stand and frame.

3. Take a measurement from the farthest point in the front to the farthest point in the back of the television.

Step 2: Choose TV units based on the size of the TV.

After you’ve determined the measurements of your television, you can begin shopping for an entertainment unit that will best accommodate your television.

The TV unit should be at least a couple inches bigger and deeper than the television (a reasonable guide is to aim for a unit at least ten centimetres wider than the TV).

This isn’t only a matter of appearances. Why? The overhanging screen offers a safety risk if the unit is too small for your TV. Your TV may also be more prone to falling or being knocked off the stand by mistake. It’s also crucial that your system can handle the weight of your television.

So, what is the ideal TV unit size for your TV?

  • Width of TV Unit (cm)
  • Minimum TV Dimensions (Diagonal)

Step 3: Make sure the viewing height is correct.

Finding a TV set that allows your screen to sit at just the perfect viewing level so you don’t have to strain your neck for the optimal viewing angle is another consideration. The ideal recommendation is to place your television at or just below eye level.

TV stands with a low profile

Height: up to 50cm Low TV stands are clean and simple, with the ideal blend of aesthetic and usefulness. They’re often available in a minimalist or retro style.

Stands for medium-sized televisions

Height ranges between 50 and 60 centimeters. Medium TV stands provide storage and a clean, expansive surface area, and are designed to be just the correct height for common televisions.

TV stands that are tall

Height of 60cm and above. Large TV stands, which sometimes have built-in drawers or deep, high shelving, offer plenty of storage as well as a high perch for your television.

Step 4: Decide where you want your TV to go.

When it comes to the distance between your sofa and armchairs and your television, there is a sweet spot.

A viewing distance of at least 1.5 times your screen size is recommended, as this will allow you to appreciate the details on the screen without noting individual pixels. If you have a 65″ TV, for example, you should set your sofa at least 250cm or 2.5 yards away from it.

Step 5: Select a television unit in your preferred design.

Select the appropriate TV unit for your requirements.

The best TV unit for you is determined by the usefulness and design of your current room. You’ll need to pick a TV stand that’s appropriate not only for your television, but also for the size and decor of your room.

Corner TV stands, like the Porter Corner Entertainment Unit, are designed to fit in a room’s corner and typically have flat corners that fit snugly against perpendicular walls. In a small space, these are ideal.

Floating TV units are wall-mounted units that offer a contemporary effect by opening up the floor area. Cords can be hidden behind shelves and drawers, and the television can be set above or on top of the unit. The Embody Entertaining Unit, for example, has recessed bases that sit on the floor and can give the impression of floating.

Console TV stands have a clean, rectangular shape, closed and open storage, and a big surface space, and are often minimalist television units.

Closed cabinetry or open shelving, drawers, and a big open area to place the television are all features of cabinet entertainment systems like the Linear Entertainment Unit (sometimes with cabinet doors to hide away the screen when not in use).

Shelving units with an open design and sculptured finish, such as the Cross Shelving Unit, are visually light. Open shelves provide plenty of storage, while a big surface space is ideal for a large television.

Choose from a variety of popular TV stand designs.

Whether it’s a classic, mid-century aesthetic or a clean, minimalist Scandinavian feel, your living room may already have its own flavor.

Finding a TV stand that matches the existing design will make the transition from the entertainment unit to the rest of the house easier.

TV cabinets from Scandinavia

Scandinavian TV cabinets combine design and utility, adhering to the ‘less is more’ principle. This Nordic style is defined by clean straight lines, a hint of a curvature, and neutral colors with light wood.

Stands for industrial televisions

Industrial TV stands have a clean, refined look with functional, extensive storage, a constructed, boxy frame, and clean, refined edges. There’ll be enough area for your television and decorations.

TV stands that are modern and contemporary

Contemporary TV sets are available in a variety of forms, sizes, and natural finishes, but they all have one thing in common: they will blend seamlessly into your modern home.

Cabinets for televisions from the mid-nineteenth century

A lovely mid-century TV cabinet exhibits delicate features, such as slatted doors or rattan style, to create a stunning accent piece in your house.

For your TV unit, the greatest materials and finishes are used.

Finally, a suitable TV stand should complement the existing finishes and materials in your entertainment area.

Walnut TV stands have a dark, brooding, and sophisticated appearance that complements your environment without overpowering it.

In a minimalist setting, oak timber TV stands look fantastic. Unique knots, color variations, black lines, and tiger grains are all aspects of solid oak that offer uniqueness to your item.

The coffee color of teak entertainment units invokes vintage retro aesthetics. A sophisticated solution for a sophisticated living room.

Rattan TV stands, with subtle embellishments woven from natural materials, look great in a retro, mid-century home.

Metal TV units, like the Cross Shelving Unit, blend purpose and design, and look fantastic in a modern home as an industrial item.

Step 6: Ideas for adorning your TV set

The final step in making your television a natural part of the room is to arrange the TV stand in such a way that it can easily transition from an entertainment center to a family living room.

Here are some of our favorite ideas to dress up your TV stand:

Make a wall gallery around your television so that it seems like another framed item. Choose black-and-white frames, pictures, and wall prints for an elegant look. Stick to three or four swatches if you want a pop of color.

Install the screen several inches above the TV unit to create a fashionable space beneath it, with enough room for a stack of trendy books, a vase of flowers, or even a pot plant or two.

By arranging items on opposite side of your television, you can achieve a sense of balance. Consider the height of your things; a vase on one side of your TV could be nicely complemented by a decorative piece of comparable height on the opposite side.

To generate symmetry, group decorative pieces together. A tray is ideal for displaying little trinkets like candles or ornaments.

Open shelving units should be filled with fashionable goods like books and frames, while closed shelves and drawers should be reserved for items that are likely to clutter (such as video game consoles).


What exactly is a television unit?

A TV unit is a console or cabinet that houses your television as well as any other entertainment equipment you might have, such as DVD players, video game consoles, and so on. Designer TV units are elegant furniture pieces in and of themselves, and they can often serve as the focal point of a living room when not in use, drawing attention away from the screen.

Where should the television be placed in a living room with a fireplace?

You don’t want the television to draw attention away from the fireplace, which is the focal point of the living area. The television should be placed next or above the fireplace so that it remains the focal point around which additional furniture, such as sofas, is arranged.

What is the shortest distance between the television and the fireplace?

Keep your television between 20 and 30 centimeters away from the fireplace.

In a living room, how high should a television be mounted?

When seated, the center of your TV should be at eye level. These are the general rules we recommend for mounting your television:

Is it best to mount a TV on the wall or place it on a stand?

The obvious benefit of installing your flat-screen TV on the wall is the amount of room it saves.

If you don’t have enough space, you can use the TV unit or a coffee table underneath as a decorative component.

When putting a TV on the wall, you’ll need to consider how you’ll conceal the numerous cords. You’ll also want to be content with the location you choose for your television because you won’t be able to change your mind after you’ve made your decision.
