If you think that your new 60 inch plasma television is the most important part of your entertainment center you should think again.

This device after all is what holds the entire center and brings everything together in such a way as to make your experience pleasant and convenient. If you go out and spend hundreds or even thousands on a new television, DVD burner, video game console, and home theater you will need the best television stand you can afford.
Fortunately there are a great many choices available. You can stay with the traditional woods and still have literally hundreds of choices between types of wood, styles, colors and patterns. You can also get a completely metal television stand or a metal and glass stand. Some of the most beautiful stands are made of either brass or chrome and tinted glass. There are TV stands for the kid´s room also in high impact brightly colored plastic.
When you are shopping for the best TV stand you should have the Horizonal, vertical and depth measurements of the television. Also count and measure you other equipment. When you are in the store you will need to plan for a spot for everything. It would be a waste to buy a stand and not have room for everything. You will also have to consider the different cables and power lines. Finally you will have to consider the décor of the room before buy.
