When you've bought a new LCD TV or plasma TV, the choice of furniture you use to display it is important as standard TV stands will not do the job. Most glass TV stands have shelving to store DVDs, books, etc and are recommended for homes with no children. Alternatively, somebody with children might prefer a wooden stand as it would be more robust and less likely to break if a collision occurred.
Other factors also need to be considered when purchasing a TV stand. For example, will the model of the TV you have fit in your stand and will the whole unit fit in your room?
