After you have completed accurately measuring your TV, you will then want to measure your space. This room measurement is essential to which TV stand will ultimately work. You do this by measuring the floor space you have available for a TV stand. If your TV is too large for a TV stand that will fit your space, you may want to consider mounting it on a wall rather than for a space savings. Make sure you sit on the couch/sofa/chair to determine the line of sight (the middle of the TV should meet the line of sight of a person when seated).
