Then complete part of your living room look by adding a coffee table. By adding a modern TV unit, you can get both extra storage space and a complete look. Choose the most suitable one for you among the TV unit models. For example, if you have a living room with dark tones, you can choose a white TV unit. Thus, you can make the focal point of your living room a TV unit. To complete your living room, all that remains is to buy your furniture, such as rugs, consoles or bookcases!

You can easily choose the most suitable one for you among the television unit models. If there is not enough space for bookcases in your home, you can choose a TV unit with a bookcase. Thus, you create both a television unit and a storage space for your books. If you want to create a more classic look in your room, you can achieve the retro and classic look you want to create by choosing a high TV console table that extends to the ceiling. You can take a look at small unit options so that it does not take up too much space. Thanks to the high legs on some TV console models, you can easily clean the bottom of your TV units, or you can choose a TV unit consisting only of drawers for a simple TV unit look. You can also prevent damage to your floor by adding floor protectors to the legs or bottom of your TV units. Many of the TV units have adjustable shelves, so you can adjust the shelf spacing as you wish.

What should be the features of the TV unit?

There are several features you should pay attention to when choosing a TV unit. The foremost of these is that it is suitable for the size of your room. When choosing the decoration and model of the TV unit, be sure to consider the size of the room. Another feature is that it harmonises with the furniture in your living room, for example, you can get a complete and decorative look by choosing a buffet that is compatible with your sideboards and TV consoles for your living room.

It will be useful to consider your needs and comfort when purchasing TV console models. Important dimensions such as the dimensions of the TV room, the width of the living space can be calculated in advance. Details such as the location of other fixed objects in the space can be decisive when deciding between wall-mounted TV units or other variants. All this initial feasibility is important in order to have a comfortable and relaxed time. At the next stage, the characteristics of the TV unit can be considered. When examining the furniture on which the television will stand, the primary feature to be considered is the raw material used. It can be useful in the long term to know the material from which the purchased item was made. Whether the chemicals such as paint and varnish applied on the material contain volatile or not can also be among the things that can be considered. Therefore, it can also be investigated whether the production materials comply with health standards.

It can also be useful if the TV units are ergonomic. When it comes to decorative TV units, large and flashy models as well as wall-mounted recessed TV units may also come to mind. Another factor you can pay attention to is the ease of use of the item. In this sense, in addition to ergonomics, the quality of the products is another detail to be considered. Combining quality raw materials and production with poor quality workmanship and assembly can shorten the life of the furniture. For example, if a solid wood high TV stand is not assembled correctly, flexing and expansion may occur over time. This can lead to a deformation that can affect the entire furniture.

The surface of the product, corner and edge bands or front patterns can easily give information about the production quality. It is important to check the foot part of all TV furniture with legs, including the TV unit with metal legs. After the arrival of the product at home, the feet can be checked during assembly. An uneven slope or a crack on the part in question can cause the item to become completely useless over time.

How to create storage space with IKEA TV unit models?

The way the TV unit is used can also vary according to the user's lifestyle. It can make it easier to make the decision easier to make life easier and more practical in the furniture where the television also stands. The television unit with cabinet is usually used by crowded and large families. Especially families who frequently receive guests or have small children may prefer a TV unit with a cabinet to collect the environment in a practical way. In modern units, units with shelves where many products such as televisions, console games, various accessories, cables and headphones can be collected can also be advantageous.

It may be important that the unit where the television stands is in harmony with the other decoration colours of the room in order to maintain the integrity of the design. Cream TV unit or white TV unit models can fit in areas decorated with minimalist and pastel colours. For a little more tone-on-tone, the TV unit can be selected in grey. If it is desired to increase the energy of the room by turning to completely contrasting colours, the TV unit can be black in white-dominant decoration. In this way, a hard image can also be achieved with sharper lines. In addition, a wooden TV unit can also create a warm ambience. These sharp contrasts may be needed especially in specially designed offices. Yellow TV unit or blue TV unit can be preferred for the youth room. For a darker design, the anthracite TV unit model can also create a very pleasant atmosphere. Depending on the predominant style of the space, metal TV unit or coloured TV unit types can also be remarkable.

TV unit types with cabinets and showcases are produced in varieties that can appeal to all tastes with modern and minimalist designs as well as traditional designs. When the room is narrow, TV units with shelves can be useful to create small slots that can evoke depth. In addition, shelved systems are frequently used in large spaces. These furniture, which are also preferred for displaying various items such as books and photographs, attract attention with both rustic and modern designs. Wall-mounted wooden shelves attached to the side of the mini TV unit can create a stylish combination.

What size should the TV unit be?

The dimensions of the product to be preferred when choosing a TV unit may vary depending on many different factors. First of all, the dimensions of the shelf on which the TV will be placed should match the size of the device. Only the dimensions of the shelf where the TV will be located may not be sufficient to determine the size of the TV unit. On the other hand, the size of the room where it will be positioned is among the features that closely concern the dimensions of the product to be selected. TV units that will remain short and small in a very large living room will not contribute to the ambience of the environment and may cause a pleasant image to get further and further away from the capture. Likewise, large models in the furniture to be selected for a small room will not be a comfortable choice as it will limit your mobility. The characteristics of the room should be taken into consideration in the size of the TV unit, which will be selected according to the place to be used, the size of the television and the taste of the person.

You can determine whether the size of the TV unit is suitable for your room by first determining where you will place the TV unit. TV units are usually placed in front of walls that can be seen from all over the room, or between the two areas in rooms where the living room and dining room are shared. If your TV unit is in front of a wall, you can choose TV units with high and abundant storage space and use the vertical space of your room efficiently. However, before choosing a TV unit model with cabinets on the sides, you should consider the size of your TV. The surface of the TV unit on which you place your TV should always be slightly wider than your TV. In this way, you can ensure that your television is safer in case of minor shocks.

Another detail to consider is how high you want to position your TV. Usually large televisions are positioned on a low and wide surface, so that the image is spread over the entire room.

High TV unit models can ensure that the screens of smaller televisions can be seen comfortably from all areas of the room. It also improves the viewing angles of people sitting on sofas at a greater distance.

The width of the TV units can be decided according to the dimensions of the space. Depending on the width of the televisions or due to the use of ancillary products such as entertainment consoles, large units can be used to keep them all together. In addition, space dimensions are also one of the determining criteria in the dimensions of the TV unit. in addition to 120 cm TV unit, 140, 160, 180 cm TV unit types can also be used by choosing according to the width of the area and ceiling height. Apart from the known models, special design TV unit models can also be preferred. These niche TV unit types are usually designed with ease of use and practical solutions in mind. In addition, instead of purchasing products suitable for the decorative concept of the room, custom-made units such as a part of the concept can also be preferred as they will fill the eye.

All these design and special production TV units have their own widths. The most important detail to be considered at this point is that the material of the shelf or similar section where the television is placed is supported to be durable. Especially the large screens of new generation televisions may cause the centre of balance to shift by adding extra weight to the unit on which it is mounted. This may cause the product to wear out in a shorter time.

For durable and long-lasting TV unit use, it may be useful to purchase according to the correct size and width. When deciding on a suitable width of furniture, the dimensions of the television should be taken clearly. It may be useful to know the width, height, thickness and diagonal dimensions as well as the weight. The television should be small in proportion to the unit in which it will be placed. An equal opening on all sides ensures that the TV is symmetrical. If there are extra entertainment devices such as cables and consoles, the width of the product can be increased accordingly. Thus, the cable does not need to be folded and compressed to hide the cable, it can be easily hidden in the unit with a small hiding apparatus.

There are many factors to consider when buying a TV unit. Especially the harmony with the room where it will be positioned is among the first things to be considered during your shopping. TV units, whose design should be in harmony with the texture used in the rest of the room, are usually located at a prominent point in the living rooms. In this sense, the choice to be made is important enough to change the ambience of the whole room in an instant. Although the elegance of its design is one of the factors you should pay attention to during the selection, you should also make sure that you buy a quality product. If you buy a poor quality product by liking its design, it may cause you to lose money in the long term as its service life will not be long. If you have no doubts about the quality and design of the models, we recommend that you decide by looking at the functionality. In this way, a single product can also be used as a cupboard where you can put your belongings or even as a library with its shelves.

TV unit models according to their materials

The choice of TV unit usually depends on where it will be used. In colour and design preferences, the harmony with the decoration is generally taken into consideration. Another feature expected from the product is that it is easy to assemble and its parts are light. They are usually made of MDF or chipboard. MDF means fibreboard with medium density. The remains of wood are chopped up and turned into fibre. It is combined with glue produced with resin and wax under high heat and pressure and designed in the form of a sheet. Chipboard materials are formed by mixing and combining wood chips with various chemicals. It is made into sheets by pressing. As it is fully fabricated, it can be produced in various thicknesses and sizes. These materials are both cheap and functional. However, they are not very resistant to external factors such as water and heat. Production qualities are graded according to impact resistance.

In addition to items produced with MDF and chipboard materials, wood is used in models such as iron TV unit or log TV unit. The most commonly used woods are oak, maple, cedar, beech, purple coloured or wood, alder and cherry. Oak wood furniture stands out with its durability. The maple ones are self-patterned transversely. Cedar wood is a species that is more resistant to hot weather. Articles made of beech are suitable for carving and embroidery. Some wooden furniture has a reddish colour. Alder can be varnished very easily and highly glossy surfaces can be obtained. Therefore, it is preferred quite often. Cherry wood items are lighter in colour than others. It can also easily adapt to changes in humidity and temperature.

Different models can be obtained with various coatings on trees. With veneers, varieties such as marble patterned TV unit or tumbled TV unit can also be produced. Coating is preferred to obtain models such as tumbled TV unit by undergoing various physical and chemical processes for a more nostalgic appearance.

Comfort can be taken to the forefront in the selection of the unit, which is as important as the choice of television, and the choices to be made by considering all living things living in the house can be more advantageous.
