Ten Ways To Display Your TV At Home

I’ve put together a list of ten ways to display your TV at home. We have three TVs in our apartment, a bit excessive, I know, but when we upgrade, we relegate the living room TV to another room. The lounge TV is on a sideboard, the bedroom TV sits on a unit at the base of the bed, and the guest room TV is on the wall. My ten ways to display your TV at home list includes:

1. Wall-mounted TV bracket

2. TV stand on legs

3. TV easel stand

4. TV stand with a solid base

5. Wall-mounted TV with a unit underneath

6. Specifically designed TV unit

7. Use a console table as a TV unit

8. TV shelving unit

9. TV inside a wardrobe

10. TV bed

Wall-mounted TV brackets are best for space-saving. If you have a flat-screen, you may want to wall mount the TV. There is a wide choice of brackets available. I’ve used one from VonHaus in my guest bedroom. As there isn’t much space between the bed and the TV for a unit, I decided that a wall-hung TV would be the best solution. Bracket options include functions such as tilt, swivel, cantilever and flat to the wall. Make sure you measure the size of the TV before purchasing the bracket and check that your wall is strong enough to withhold a TV on a bracket. I had a plug socket put behind the TV to avoid trailing cables. TV brackets from VonHaus are from £9.99 to £32.99.

Legs are best for a minimal TV display without fixing it to the wall, and TV legs can look quite cute. I particularly love the ones from JALG, which have a mid-century modern design. Choose from Scandi-style splayed or hairpin legs in oak, black, white, red, yellow, blue or pink. TV legs are a good option if your walls are too thin for a wall-hung TV.

Easels are best for positioning the TV high without fixing it to the wall. If you like the idea of TV legs but you’d instead place your TV higher off the ground, an easel may work for you. The Steel Easel TV Stand from VonHaus is minimal, with anti-slip straps to prevent the TV from falling over. It would look fabulous in a contemporary living room. It is a space-saving option and ideal for those who don’t like clutter.

A TV stand with a solid base is best for a portable unit. If you are worried about knocking over a TV on legs or an easel, choose a solid core instead. The luxury Folio TV unit can take up to a 40-inch tv and has built-in cable routes at the back, so you don’t have to hide unsightly wires. It has storage space and shelves for all your entertainment items.

Wall-mounted TV with a unit underneath is best for ample storage. If you like the look of a wall-hung TV, but you need additional storage, this is the perfect solution. Use a bracket to hang the TV on the wall. Select a unit to place underneath in the size and style you desire.

A TV unit is best for an easy option that is low to the ground. If you don’t trust yourself with a power tool or the wall is too flimsy for a bracket, sit the TV on a specially designed TV unit. There are plenty of options available to suit your interior style and TV size. TV units often have cable management holes which is a benefit. Most TV units are low to the ground. If you want more storage, try a sideboard instead of a TV unit.

A TV on top of a console table is best for a simple space-saving solution. At first, I displayed my living room TV on a console table, and it was a quick solution and saved on space. When I bought a larger TV, I switched to a sideboard which gave me additional storage. Console tables are slim and tall, making them great TV stands.

A TV on a shelving unit is best for displaying decorative objects. If you have books, vases, ornaments and other items you wish to show off, try a shelving unit, and it provides a standalone solution with ample space to showcase your favourite objects.

A wardrobe with a built-in space for the TV is best for bedrooms. Either buy a ready-made wardrobe that can accommodate a TV or have a bespoke unit made by a carpenter. It’s an excellent option if your bed isn’t too far from the wardrobe.

A TV bed is best for small bedrooms. If you have limited space in the bedroom, you might be interested in a TV bed. The TV can be raised when you want to watch it and hidden when you don’t.
