Shopping For A New Wooden TV Cabinet

If you are shopping for a new wooden cabinet for your TV, you want to make sure that you consider the various features available.  A wooden TV cabinet could have an open or a closed design and the wood is often factory-stained or painted. 

The Style And The Finish

Solid wood pieces are often used to create cabinetry that is designed to encase a television. This cabinet type may contain a cutout that will support TV sets of various sizes. There may be some storage supplied that can be used to contain your movie collection, a gaming system, and other media accessories.

A cabinet that contains a simple design and that is designed solely as a base support for your tv may resemble a shelving unit. One or more shelf pieces will be affixed to the base of a stand. The stand may contain narrow legs or one wide wooden piece that serves as the base.

A furniture store may have several models on display and these will be set up in a manner that will showcase how a particular furniture piece will complement the television set that is paired with it. Finishes for a cabinet include matte and gloss stains and paints. If you prefer the look of wood grain and knotting, a light stain color or a clear glossy or matte paint type will preserve the originality of each wooden piece.

Some furniture dealers sell cabinet styles that contain raw, unfinished wood pieces. Plain wood pieces can be custom painted or stained, prior to the assembly of the cabinet. If you would like to custom match the color of the stand, you can use color swatches to help you choose a stain or paint color to match an upholstery style or the color of the flooring and walls where your new stand will be set up.

Access To Accessories

How you access your movies, remote controls, or other gadgets may be of concern if you have small children who will be restricted from using some of the items without your supervision. A cabinet that contains drawers or small cubbies that contain locks or a safety latch system will prevent the storage spaces from being opened.

If you decide to purchase an elaborate stand that is going to serve as a place to display your tv and some small decorative items, choose a model that features glass paneling along the front of it. Items can be set up behind the glass and won't be prone to breaking.
