Technically, the screen support is chosen according to the size and weight of the monitor. Visually, there is a parameter that we often forget to take into account: the room that will host it.
TV stand for the living room
With the boom in flat screens, we are witnessing the same phenomenon at the level of supports for screens. Faced with the diversity of the offer, the choice is not always obvious. Before focusing on the technical aspects of the support, choose a style that meets both your aesthetic requirements and your functional expectations. Taking into account the room in which you want to install the screen allows you to make the first selection. For the living room, for example, bet on TV furniture type supports. We are talking here about models with an upper shelf surmounted by a mounting column for a flat screen. The set comes to dress the room.
A stand for the desk
You have to work with a large screen as a monitor. It must be admitted: this equipment is particularly cumbersome. Do you need to save more space on your countertop? Consider stand-up monitor stands. Whether you have a straight desk, a corner desk, or a simple console, this solution is perfectly suited. While some models are fixed directly to the desk, those that rest on the floor remain the best choice for guaranteed space-saving. In either case, the monitor supports dedicated to desks are both tiltable up to 15° (up-down) and adjustable.
A wall rack for the bedroom
The wall mount is probably still one of the most popular models. It is appreciated above all for its discretion and aesthetic appeal. It also has the advantage of adapting to any room in the house. Thanks to its size, it is particularly recommended for rooms which, in addition to the wardrobe and chest of drawers, cannot accommodate additional furniture. Overall, you will find two types of wall mounts on the market: fixed versions and mobile models with articulated arms allowing orientation and tilting of the screen. In any case, most current equipment is delivered with cable management columns for an aesthetic installation.
Ceiling support for cramped rooms
Choosing a screen support rather than a piece of furniture often responds to a space management requirement and a desire to create a design and aesthetic atmosphere. At home, the m² are counted. All the rooms, the living room as well as the bedroom, are narrow. Even hung on the wall, your large screen may weigh down and clutter the space. Fortunately, there is a great alternative to TV wall mounts: ceiling TV mounts. Relatively little known, these devices allow you, as their name suggests, to hang your screen from the ceiling. The floating effect brings a certain lightness to the space, not to mention the original cachet of the visual rendering. Visit also: Video Wall Screen
Flat screen: dimensions and supports
Free-standing, free-standing, wall-mounted, or ceiling-mounted screen support, each of these models has specific characteristics. The former, for example, support more loads compared to those that hang from the ceiling. The size of the screen, which defines its weight, is precisely an essential criterion for the purchase of the TV stand. Remember that a large flat screen can weigh up to 60 kg. Also, do not hesitate to note all the characteristics of your screen before choosing the support. The instructions for use of the latter always indicate in cm/inch the maximum size of the screen supported. The same goes for the weight and type of screen (LCD/LED/plasma).
