A TV Floor Stand Makes Viewing More Versatile
If you have no room to spare in your apartment, an affordable TV floor stand is a space-saving solution that will help you to manage the congestion. As a versatile alternative to a console or tabletop, a TV floor stand adjusts to the way you like to watch your favorite shows. Also, it fits just about anywhere you have a small space for it, and there are many options available on eBay.How do you choose the floor stand fitting your TV?
Many TV floor stands are designed to securely carry a range of flat-screen television sizes. Before you go shopping, measure the diagonal screen measurement of your TV, and then take a look at the great selection of new and used freestanding TV stands on eBay. If the item description includes a screen-size range, such as 37-inch to 55-inch, check to see if your screen size falls within those parameters. You can also consult your television manual or the manufacturer's website to get the factory dimensions of your set. Keep in mind when selecting a TV floor stand that the width of the stand is a different measurement than your screen size, so for instance, if you have an 85-inch screen, you will need a 75 inch TV floor stand. See the manufacturer site for details.What are some basic styles of floor TV stands?
While specific brands differ somewhat, freestanding TV stands come in a few basic designs:
- Pedestal TV floor stand with a flat base, a single column, and a TV mounting frame at the top
- Two-piece bracket stand with feet
- Easel stand with floor frame, two legs, and mounting frame on top
- Tripod portable TV floor stand with folding legs and mounting bracket
- TV floor stand with wheels
From the most basic to the fanciest, various floor TV stands offer a number of common features. For example, they are designed for stability and ease of use. Some unique features that some models offer include the following:
- Dual and multi-monitor brackets
- Telescoping pedestal
Typically, you will attach a bracket from your standing TV mount kit to the back of your television using the included hardware. Then, you fit the set with the bracket attached to the freestanding TV stand. The final step is securing the bracket to the stand itself. Each model may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
