TV units and stands

Before you purchase your stand, think about the height, as this will affect the height of your TV. Measure the depth to accommodate the TV feet. Consider the width too, does your TV have feet in the middle or at the sides? Your stand should be 3 inches wider than your TV, but not so big that your TV looks too small.

Most TV units and stands are easy to move and come with smart ways to store your DVDs, consoles or cables. Plus there are multiple options to suit your style.
