TV Stands Buying Guide


How to Choose TV Stand Dimensions


Many customers who visit our site quickly become overwhelmed by the sheer number of TV stands available online. Most people are simply looking for a good deal on a TV stand that will fit the width of their TV. The trouble is that TVs are measured differently than TV stands. TVs are measured diagonally - not horizontally like furniture - which means that your brand new 60 inch TV is not actually 60 inches wide at all.



To further complicate matters, the measurements of a 60 inch TV do not include the bezel (or frame) around the screen. More complications arise with the new HDTVs. These flat screen TVs have screen aspect ratios of 16:9 - meaning that the height is 56% of the width. Old CRT TVs are more boxy with a screen aspect ratio of 4:3, meaning that the height is 75% of the width.

TV Stands for Flat Screen TVs and HDTVs



The chances are pretty good that if you are buying a new TV stand, it is probably for an HDTV flat screen. We have created this handy chart to help you find the minimum width recommended for your TV stand. This will help to ensure that your TV isn’t wider than your stand, which can be a safety hazard. It is important to point out that all TVs have different bezel (frame) sizes which means that we cannot predict the overall width of your TV with complete accuracy.







How to properly measure the width of your TV Stand



Before using this chart, remember that there are two foolproof ways to find the actual width of your TV. The first is to physically measure it with a tape measure and the second is to consult the TV manufacturer’s website for full specification details.

We have created this chart for demonstration purposes to assist you when buying a TV Stand. It is important to note that we can not accurately assume the size of the Bezel around your screen, as these vary by manufacturer and model.
