If you have a television set in your bedroom or living room, you are probably well aware of the fact that television stands are not the loveliest thing in any type of décor. It is something about a television stand that just gets in the way of the eye, and those that are pleasing to it are usually not so pleasing to the pocketbook. Of course, rarely is there a television without one of the many different kinds of television stands to get in the way of everything. Luckily, there are ways to go about your home décor so that the furniture that holds your television set is hardly noticeable at all. Here are a few design ideas to get you started on calling the attention away from any of your mediocre television stands.
Go Floral in Your Home
Well, you don't have to go floral but getting some type of greenery in your home-especially in brighter areas like a living room, can take away from eyesores like that darn TV stand. As a matter of fact, small trees work very well for this purpose as do flowers, potted plants, and other such items. If you have flowers in a vase, those are only designed to last for a time, but flowers in a pot that you can tend to and will grow are excellent ways to start a design around even the ugliest of television stands.
Get a Television Armoire for a Bedroom
One of the places in which foul television stands are the hardest to hide is in the bedroom. If you have this problem but you are not really comfortable with putting your television on an end table or on top of the dresser, consider a television armoire. A television armoire is a great way to hide the television when you aren't watching it, and if you pick the right ones you can end up with a very nice piece of furniture to look at when the television set is actually hidden away as well.
Get a Hanging TV
If you don't have one already, you have most likely at least seen those plasma and LCD television stands that hang on the wall. Those are some nifty little televisions and a great way of displaying them, especially if you are not too big on space in your room of choice. These hanging television sets take up very little room and can easily be a center piece in any room in your home if you like. At the same time, wall mounted televisions easily eliminate the need for television stands whatsoever, and that is always a good thing.
Some television stands are a good thing; if you spend enough money you can get a really nice one. If you are over the idea of TV stands and would rather call attention to something else in the rooms of your home, you have got some ideas to work with, so take them and run.
