There's nothing better than getting to watch the latest TV now that the winter evenings have arrived. To make sure you have the best TV viewing experience, you must not only have the right TV, but the perfect piece of furniture to put it on. Choosing the right TV cabinet furniture for your living room can be a challenge, which is why here at Role.Storewe've put together some tips to help you get it right.

Suit the size of the room

A TV cabinet is probably the focal point of your living room, but that doesn't mean it should be extra large or the focal point of the room. It's a good idea to measure the size of your living room before you start looking for TV furniture, as you want the size of your TV cabinet to be in sync with the size of your living room. To make sure the TV will fit in the cabinet securely, you want the cabinet to be about 20% longer than the TV (although a flat screen TV usually has a base to distribute the weight evenly, you run the risk of bumping the TV if the cabinet is too small). Also consider whether the cabinet has sufficient load-bearing capacity to support the TV. 

The Escandi model of tv furnitureas well as the collection collection, has a purely Nordic and mid century design for your living room. Clean and simple lines, elegant integrated handles and all the warmth and stability provided by solid wood. You will not lack space to store your electronic devices or other objects: the piece has a total of six shelves, four of them with doors and two with views.

Choose a comfortable viewing height

Standing with your neck at awkward angles for hours at a time is not recommended, so the TV stand should position the screen at eye level. The recommended height for the TV is about 100 cm, but the best position depends on the height of your sofa or chairs. For a customized setup, measure your eye level when seated, making sure the center region of the TV is not too far above your line of sight. Consider purchasing a TV stand with a bracket to adjust the level of the screen as needed.

Adjust the size and width of the TV set

If you're determined to take home a 40- or 50-inch TV for cinema-quality viewing, think about the space you need to reserve on the wall or floor for an extra-wide model. If space permits, look for TV consoles that are wider than the screen to avoid unnecessary protrusion, especially if the TV is placed in the center of the room. Although a flat-screen TV usually has a stand to distribute the weight evenly, you risk bumping or dropping the screen if the TV stand is too small. You should also make sure that the stand has enough weight capacity to support your flat screen TV.

Our TV cabinet Wardi is made of solid oak and combined with iron legs. For a more uniform look of your living room you can combine it with other industrial design elements of our line LoftStory line.


Plan storage and organization

Keeping your TV stand free of clutter and cords is one of the best ways to display your flat screen TV. Look for a TV stand with storage space to organize media or magazines, and look for units with ample table space if you want to put accent decor on the screen. Large entertainment centers are perfect for organizing multiple electronics in a compact, centralized location. Most TV stands include cutouts for cord management, which will help you hide cords and keep your family safe from electrical hazards. Depending on your style, choose from open shelving, closed cabinets and drawers.
