The main color may be white, but a white corner TV stand can come in many styles. Nate Berkus recommends looking at your other furniture when deciding which TV stand to buy, as this way you'll achieve a cohesive look. A good example to think about when searching for a matching furniture piece is to think about distressed versus smooth furniture. You may love the look of a distressed and whitewashed stand in a farmhouse style, but it will look massively out of place if the rest of your furniture has a clean-lined look. In general, white corner TV stands have a modern vibe to them, as white is commonly associated with contemporary décor schemes. However, you can create an antique vibe by purchasing an off-white or artfully distressed stand -- both things will create an older look.
Material and Maintenance:
A white corner TV stand is an item that will be used often, so finding the right material and knowing how to maintain it is key. Being able to maintain your stand will prolong its lifespan by keeping it looking newer for longer. Per Suzanne Kasler, if you want a solid and sturdy TV stand, oak wood and acacia wood are two brilliant materials to look out for. Both of these choices can be painted over but won't get as easily damaged. To prevent fading, make sure your TV stand won't be in direct sunlight constantly. Sunlight can cause damage to solid natural wood. If you prefer manufactured wood, a protective lacquer will help to keep your stand from obtaining lots of chips and marks.
Due to white corner TV stands being specifically designed to fit in corners, the majority are slightly smaller than regular TV stands so they don't feel crammed into your corner space. Checking whether your television will fit on your stand comfortably is also very important, as you don't want to be left with either too little or too much space left over. If you have a television that measures 55 inches wide, go for a cabinet that accommodates 60-inch televisions. This will give you room for decorative objects and additionally allows for televisions with wider bases.
Whether you want lots of storage space or don't need much, shelving can be a very useful addition to any TV stand. Even if you don't own any consoles or other TV-related electronics, you can use shelves for books and DVDs. Victoria Hagan recommends looking for stands that have shelves behind doors. This will not only ensure a less messy look as you can hide away untidied items but will also lend you some privacy. These doors can be customized to suit your style, too; for example, barn doors for a living room decorated in a cottage style. Moreover, an open shelf in the center of a TV stand can be used for decoration or to create a focal accent touch.
One of the main additional features to keep in mind when searching for a white corner TV stand is cable management. Having an area to feed cables and wires through will help to create a cleaner look by stopping your TV stand from becoming cluttered. Cable management is also a good option if you want to keep the wires for game consoles and your actual TV separate, as you'll be able to feed the wires through in different directions for better organization.
