You’ve picked out promising movies, purchased your favorite brand of popcorn, and prepared your spare blankets and pillows. But what about that dinky TV stand you’ve been meaning to replace?
Picking out the right entertainment center can feel like a daunting task, but you can make it less of a challenge if you narrow down your choices. Follow these three steps when picking out an entertainment center and find the perfect match for your space:
1. Measure your space and TV: Never just guesstimate how much room you have. You always want to be sure that the entertainment center will fit, otherwise, you might just have to take it right back to the store. Normally, the more space you have, the bigger the TV stand you can buy. You’ll also want to consider how large your TV is though. A really tiny TV might look even smaller if you have a big entertainment center. If you have a lot of room and a decent-sized TV, you’ll have more options, such as three-piece centers.
First, you will want to measure the TV. Typically, the TV stand will say what size TV they will hold but if you have the exact measurements, you will be 100% sure it will work for you. When you measure the TV, make sure you take the height, width, and depth of your TV. Do remember that the number on your TV box only measures the screen size diagonally and doesn’t include the frame.
