Glass TV Stand
Hold up your TV and store your belongings with the durability and style of a glass TV stand.
Glass TV Stands (Crafted with Wood)
Most glass TV stands are actually made up of a combination of glass and wood, with the wood making up the stand’s base, top and sides and the glass comprising elements of the stand’s ‘cupboard doors.’
This wood-and-glass combination is one of the most popular construction options for TV stands for a couple of reasons. The first is durability; when quality materials are used (when wood is solid, and veneers and glass thick), a glass TV stand offers high capacities for holding heavy TVs and other electronic equipment. The second reason for the popularity of this type of TV stand is the style versatility that comes from pairing wood with glass; both materials are embraced in a variety of styles, and, when paired together, form a timeless appeal.
Glass TV Stand Style and Organization Tips
How to Organize a Glass TV Stand
Because the ‘glass’ part of a glass TV stand forms the front of the stand’s doors (making the stand look like it has little decorative windows), the shelves behind the doors can be another opportunity for you to showcase your personal style. Before you jump into styling, though, make sure that everything that needs to be stored in the TV stand is placed inside it. (Store sleeker, larger pieces like gaming consoles behind the glass and smaller, less ‘attractive’ pieces like extension cords, remotes and manuals in a concealed drawer.)
How to Style a Glass TV Stand
Once you have an idea of how much space is left over, incorporate decorative accents to ‘refine’ the look of the shelves. Try incorporating items that are bold enough to offer visual intrigue and style – even behind glass-and-wood paneling. For example, a stack of two or three of your favorite coffee table books, arranged so that the binding (with titles) face the glass – or a group of two or three potted succulents – will offer enough focus and definition to spruce up the overall aesthetic of your glass TV stand, without creating a cluttered feel.
Glass TV Stands for Other Types of Storage
Glass TV stands are technically designed for holding up TVs and storing electronic equipment, but because they are so chic on their own, they can serve a variety of other functions while still bringing statement style – and without feeling out of place. In rooms other than the living room, they offer practical, versatile and stylish storage solutions. Consider, for example, placing them by themselves in dining rooms, bedrooms or even home offices for a “buffet server” style of storage, “dresser” style of storage and “cabinet” style of storage, respectively.
