TV stand ideas – Flat screen TV should have certain stands to be created and displayed on. These can be built or create yourself depending on the specific types of furniture and decor of the living room where you plan to install and display your flat screen TV.
IKEA sells a wide range of furniture for a wide variety of purposes, including TV stand ideas, which are reasonably expensive. Old pieces of IKEA furniture, like old sofa tables or bedside lamps, however, can act as a flat screen TV stand, depending on where the TV will be shown in the room. Just make sure the older piece of IKEA furniture is robust enough to keep your flat screen TV, along with cable box, DVD player and any other accessories you have around your flat screen.
Flat screen TVs can also be mounted on the wall, which serves as an efficient tripod that frees floor space in your living room. These wall mountings can be expensive and reasonably difficult to install, need pilot holes, anchors and screws to ensure mount and TV will be able to hang on the wall and not tear that Sheetrock due to the weight. It is important to find a stud in the wall where you can hang most of the holder and the TV weight as this will ensure that it will never tear off the wall over time. If this does not work with your room layout then you will have to use heavy anchors and wall ex-panders to support the mount and flat screen TV stand ideas.
