TV Stand Size Guide

Searching through an array of TV stand sizes doesn’t have to feel tricky. These tips make it easy to set up the perfect entertainment center, so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the show – no matter what screen it’s playing on!

TV Stand Height

It is a general rule of thumb that the center of your screen should be positioned at or just below eye level. Ensuring that your TV is kept at a comfortable position involves some simple math: Measure the distance from the floor to the average sightline of viewers in your household, and subtract half of the TV’s height. The perfect height for your TV stand will fall within an inch or two of the difference.

TV Stand Width

Because TVs are measured diagonally and TV consoles are measured horizontally, be sure to record and consider the width of your screen when choosing your console. We recommend getting a console that is at least a few inches wider than your TV.

Large TV Stands, Medium TV Stands and Small TV Stands

To simplify your search for the perfect TV stand size, we’ve broken down TV stands into three main groups: Large TV Stands, Medium TV Stands and Small TV Stands.
