Thought of everything? Do the check!
A TV stand has a specific function, namely to make watching TV as comfortable as possible and it should also be an attractive addition to your interior. A major annoyance with a TV cabinet is the mess of wiring in sight! To avoid this and other design errors, we have compiled this checklist:
- Can you hide the cords?
- Is there a compartment wide and deep enough to store the TV receiver?
- Is the function of the other cabinets appropriate for the current dimensions?
- Is the height for placing the TV adjusted to your desired 'viewing height'? To be able to watch TV in a relaxed manner, it is advisable to determine the viewing height on the basis of your height, the height of the sofa and the desired viewing position. If you don't do this, your neck or back may suffer.
- Have you thought about invisible connections at the front of the TV unit?
Can you answer all questions with YES? Kudos to you! You have thought of everything.
