Why Trust Us?

As the primary source of entertainment and often the most popular gathering spot in your home, your TV is something that deserves to be showcased. That’s where having a quality TV stand or entertainment center comes in. If you love binging countless hours of shows, family movie nights, or enjoy keeping up with your favorite sports team, a large TV stand in your home is a major must. 

A TV stand is a multitasking piece of furniture that provides a secure place to display your television, organize streaming and cable devices, and can even store books and other home décor. When looking for the best TV stand, you’ll want to find one that’s the right size, think about what materials it’s made out of, and if it will blend in seamlessly in your home. To help get you inspired, our experts have put together a guide on how to choose the right small, medium, or large TV stand, as well as the many benefits they’ll bring to your living space.

How to Measure for the Right TV Stand Size

While many of today’s TVs are nowhere near as bulky as they used to be, it’s still extremely important to measure what you have so that you know what’s needed for the best viewing experience possible. Manufacturers will measure the width of their TVs diagonally from corner to corner, with no regard for the bevel. That measurement may be helpful; however, we suggest grabbing your measuring tape and following these helpful tips to find your TV’s correct size and its recommended TV stand width.  

  • Measure your TV’s height and width for an accurate number. Even flat-screen TVs have depth, so make sure to measure from front to back (including the base) to prevent any potential overhang when integrating your TV into the stand. 
  • Measure your room. Know the floor space available for your entertainment furniture, plus wall space and depth, too. 
  • Don’t sit too close! An enjoyable viewing experience requires some distance between you and the TV.
  • For the most comfortable viewing experience, the lower half of the TV screen should be level with your line of sight and no lower than 12 inches below that measurement. 

A good rule of thumb is to pick a TV stand that’s at least two inches wider than your screen’s width. To help make things easier, here’s a chart that shows TV sizes and their recommended TV stand width:

Entertainment Center & TV Stand FAQs

With everything we’ve covered on large TV stands and entertainment centers, it can still be a little overwhelming to make a decision when all you want to do is get back to relaxing and binging your favorite series. To help answer a few more inquiries you may have about TV stands, here are a couple of frequently asked questions from customers like you.    

Q: How much bigger should a TV stand be than the TV? 

A: The TV stand should be at least two to three inches wider than your television.  

Q: Is it OK if the TV is bigger than the stand? 

A: Your TV should not be bigger than your TV stand. Having a TV that is bigger than your TV stand looks awkward and is not visually appealing. Not to mention, it could very well tip or fall over.
