As we move toward more hours spent inside, now is a good time to take a look around your space and decide which pieces of furniture you can live with until spring and what needs to go ASAP. Updating your TV stand is a smart investment if what you have is purely functional and adds zero style to your family room. The good news is that there are plenty of attractive media consoles on the market to snag for an average of roughly $300. Plus, most come with extra space for storage—always a bonus. Read on for our recommendations, along with advice on what to consider before you shop.

What to Consider

As for the basics, if you already have a TV or plan to buy a new one, you’ll need to find a stand with the right dimensions. In addition to length and width, pay extra attention to height to ensure your TV will be at the appropriate eye level. Maximum weight capacity is important too, so be sure to take extras into account, like sound bars, gaming consoles, and other electronics, or decorative pieces or books that you’re planning to display.

Consoles are generally built to hold TVs 40 inches or less, all the way up to 80-inch sets. Most are rectangular or square, but there are also corner TV stands, which can work well in rooms without a ton of wall space, plus there are floating consoles that are great space-savers. If you want an extra cozy vibe in your living room, there are also fireplace TV stands on the market.

How We Chose

Every TV stand we write about below has an average customer rating of four stars or higher. We feature a wide selection of styles — from traditional to industrial to midcentury modern — and chose stands that span multiple price points, ranging from about $90 to upwards of $600. Many of the stands we review come in several other sizes and finishes, and we noted additional options for every console we cover.
