We Answer Wednesday - stylish TV stands



I have a typical, TV media stand right now and I find it such an eye sore in my home. What are some unique ideas to use as a media stand in my living room?


We agree! While the typical, glass media stand is a cheap and easy option but it certainly doesn’t enhance the style of a space. There are tons of great options that are not necessarily the ‘typical’ option but will look fabulous! Here are 7 suggestions for ‘unique’ media stands.


1. A dresser: depending on how much space you have in your living room this is a fantastic option for a few reasons. It is GREAT for storage, it will hide cords and it is a unique option to have. You don’t have to choose a typical bedroom dresser, maybe a decorative option with some detail work, or some curves to the wood, perhaps in a bright colour. The flexibility with a dresser is awesome. Just make sure that the height works for your space. If you are using a lower, more modern dresser, it helps to check the height of your sofa to ensure its not too low to comfortably watch.

2. A chest: Depending again on the height, having a chest with or without detail is a unique look. This is also a great way to hide any cords etc since a chest is typically bulky.  There are so many different colours, styles, sizes and finishes to choose from! A great way to personalize your space.

3. A console table: a clean lined, simple console table with a bit of storage is a great space saving option. You can hide any wires by adding baskets underneath, or a small bench or ottomans. This is very versatile and comes in many options, depending on your décor and the size of your home. Make sure that you have enough depth to hold the items you need to.

 Would really like this in the apartment!!! We need something else besides the one that was given to us... It has overstayed its welcome! LOL:


4. A fireplace: before committing to this though, make sure you have checked that your TV can withstand the heat that a fireplace will generate. For some people, having their TV over mounted or resting on the fireplace is a fabulous space saver as well as a great look!

5.  A bench: be sure your bench is sturdy enough to handle the weight of a TV but this could be a great small space solution because a bench won't add a ton of bulk but pay attention to the height.


Love you can get a table like that anywhere or build then do a smaller underneath for electronics. Accessorize and use baskets.  Get really creative and use glass shelves on the side.:



6. TV Easel: we love this option but understand it isn't necessarily budget friendly.  This is a great option for spaces where your wall space is limited (hello condo dwellers) plus these come of wheels so they can be moved around if you need room in your main living space if you are hosting a larger TV free party!

7. Bookcase: Having a lower bookcase is another fantastic idea for a small space. This will incorporate a ton of storage and hold your TV – so practical!! You can never have enough storage. Plus, this is a great idea for showcasing accessories as well as being functional – doesn’t get much better than that!!


The Bali Media Console is inspired by India’s brightly colored culture and antiques. Benchmade by Indian artisans out of solid Mango wood, this piece should be celebrated for its uniqueness and beauty.:

Great ideas & picture examples. Important too, is making sure to secure the TV so it doesn't tip over. eg. http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-keep-your-tv-from-falling-over/
