TV sets usually occupy the central part of the living rooms in almost all homes…

Today they can also be found in bedrooms and children rooms, and also in dining areas because watching TV is one of the inevitable entertainments of the modern society. TV stands have become a basis, a piece of modular furniture, which changes depending on the available space.

They can be turned into party walls and thus become an architectural element which involves movement into the space and filtrates the light. TV stands are usually placed on the central wall of the living room with the obligatory TV set which dictates its position in a room, depending on the sources of light.

Lights from lamps and windows can affect your TV`s picture so it is necessary to eliminate any reflection off the screen. Watching TV from sofas and chairs is in sitting position, and so TV stands should be in higher position than in bedrooms where watching TV includes lying on the bed. It is important to place your TV at a height where your eyes are level with the middle of the screen and also at the right viewing distance. This has an effect on the dimension, shape and height of the TV stands.

Depending on the available space and on the needs, TVs can be placed low-horizontally, high-vertically, or in a combination of them. They can be placed on the wall above the sofa or next to the fireplace.
