TV Stand Buying Guide: How to Choose or Create your Bespoke Reclaimed Wood TV Stand

TV stands are the entertainment hub of our homes; no matter whether you’re an iPad watcher, a laptop gamer, or a book reader, we often find ourselves centred around the television. So, ensure your TV is pride of place with a lovingly handmade, bespoke wooden TV cabinet or stand that is individually made just for you and your home.

Here at The Bespoke Carpentry Co. each of our TV cabinets and stands offer plenty of room for storing your entertainment equipment, such as smart boxes and games console, as well as accessories, books and more. Additionally, some of our TV stands also feature extra storage options, including cupboards and cubby holes.

We offer a wide variety of styles to perfectly suit your home décor; no matter if you’re looking for a chunky and rustic farmhouse style TV unit or a more minimalist industrial style, we’ve got you covered.


Choosing a TV Unit or Stand for Your Home

What Size is Your Television?

TV Size for TV Stand

Before looking at styles and details of your new TV stand, the first thing you need to do is measure your TV. The reason this is so important is because TVs are advertised as their screen size, for example, 54 inches. However, this is measured diagonally, not horizontally, and therefore will not help you in knowing what size TV stand you will need. Additionally, the TV size will not include the frame or surrounding bezel, just the screen itself.

Therefore, first you need to measure the width of your TV from left to right. Alternatively, if you are unable to measure your television width, you may be able to find this measurement from the manufacturer.

Once you have found your television size you can now choose which size TV stand you require. Be sure to choose a TV stand size that not only looks great and works well with your TV but that is also safe. If your TV stand is too small for your TV, then this can be dangerous; you want to ensure you leave enough space either side of your television to prevent knocking the screen.


What Size TV Stand is Best for You and Your Home?

TV stands and cabinets come in a variety of sizes, each of which have their own purposes. The size of your TV stand will be heavily influenced by the size of your TV; however, you may also wish to consider the below points.


  • Extra Large, Large and Wide TV Stands – If you’ve got a larger-than-life TV, then you’re going to need a TV stand to match it. Here at The Bespoke Carpentry Co. we can make a range of our TV stands as wide as 240cm as standard. A large TV stand is perfect for the living area and offers a great storage solution.



Medium Wooden TV Stand


  • Medium TV Stands – A medium TV unit is an extremely versatile piece of furniture as it can be used in most rooms without compromising on space, but still providing a great storage solution. A medium TV stand will work well in most living rooms but could also be a great addition to a bedroom and games room.



Small Wooden TV Stand


  • Small TV Stands – A small TV stand is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a TV unit for a playroom or children’s room and can help provide some useful additionally storage.



TV on a Stand vs TV Hung on the Wall

A TV stand isn’t just for placing a TV on! You may have just assumed that you’d stand your TV on the TV unit or cabinet. However, a TV stand or cabinet is also the perfect piece of furniture to place beneath a wall hung TV. If choosing to hang your TV on the wall, you will have greater flexibility when it comes to the size of your TV cabinet. However, we would personally still recommend getting a TV stand the same width or wider than the size of the TV, to create an aesthetically pleasing look.  

No matter whether your TV is hung on the wall, or placed on a TV stand, a TV cabinet is an essential piece of furniture for hiding unsightly cables and storing all your entertainment centre items.


Bespoke Handmade TV Stands for Your Home

Here at The Bespoke Carpentry Co. each piece of bespoke reclaimed wood furniture is handmade for you and your requirements, which means we can create you a stunning TV stand that suits your needs perfectly. As standard we offer our range of wooden TV stands in sizes 80cm up to 220cm, however, a few of our TV stands can be made as small as 40cm and as large as 240cm. (Please see individual item for specific size options.)  Our wide range of TV stand sizes means you’ll be sure to get a TV stand that perfectly complements your screen size.

Each of our TV stands offers a varying height and style to suit your individual home décor. So if you’re looking for a chunky wooden TV stand then our Rustic TV Bench with Storage is a great pick. Additionally, if you ever wanted to mix it up, our Rustic TV Bench with Storage can also be used as an actual bench in your boot room or hallway.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to create an industrial vibe with your interior design then our TV Stand with Copper Legs is a great piece which ties together modern and industrial chic design elements, ideal for a minimalist industrial décor.

Match Your TV Stand with Your Furniture

If you’re looking to create a harmonious look and feel across your home by matching your furniture, then we are here to help. Here at The Bespoke Carpentry Co. we offer 2 ways in which you can match your furniture.

  1. If you already have existing furniture which you love and would like to match your new TV stand to, then we offer 5 different colour finishes allowing you to find the one which best matches your existing furniture colour.
  2. Alternatively if you’re looking at getting all new furniture then we offer many of our styles in each furniture type, allowing you to buy matching styles for each piece of furniture, for example, a matching TV stand and Coffee Table.
  3. Or why not switch things up a little; you may wish to have the same style of furniture across your home, yet each room has a different colour scheme. However, because each of our items are made completely bespoke to you, you can have the same style of furniture across your home, with each individual piece finished in a different colour. Allowing the furniture to best suit the décor of the room and ensuring you to get the best of both worlds.

Versatile Wooden Furniture for Multiple Purposes

Here at The Bespoke Carpentry Co. we like to ensure that our handmade wooden furniture is versatile. Recycling, repurposing, and minimising our impact on the environment is key to our business which is why many pieces of our furniture can be mixed and matched across your home. For example, we have our Rustic Bench with Storage that works great as both a bench and a TV unit. However, many of the pieces of furniture on our website don’t just sit in one type of furniture category. So, if you see a piece of furniture that you like on our website that isn’t categorised as a TV stand then go ahead and purchase it. You never know one day you may be using it as your next coffee table.
