White Entertainment Units and TV Stands

White entertainment units and TV stands offer a bright and airy alternative to traditional black units. Designed to hold your television and audio/video equipment, this furniture can pull a room together. You may prefer a unit with lots of storage space or a sleek, contemporary design for your living room.

How much storage capacity do entertainment units have?

One of the first things to consider is the total amount of storage that a media unit provides. This depends on the overall size of the TV stand and whether it features drawers or doors. Those that come with sliding drawers give you room for DVDs, video games, and other things that you use with your TV. Drawers let you store items like remotes, magazines, or other gadgets.

Some units look like white cabinets with multiple doors across the bottom. These doors open to reveal hidden space inside. You might want one with doors that hide adjustable shelving that you can raise or lower to accommodate your equipment.

How tall should your unit be?

Whether looking at cabinets or standard TV stands, you need to think about height. These units come in heights that match the heights of your couch and other pieces of living room furniture. If you want to mount your TV on the wall, you might look for cabinets that match the mounted height of the set. Some stands come with shelves of different heights. These sets might have one shelf for your TV and shorter glass pieces on each side for speakers and other components.

What are the different types of units?

There are a few different types of stands that you might want to consider. Each type works well in different living room layouts.

  • Entertainment center: An entertainment center is a larger piece of furniture designed to make your TV the center of the room. Most have a door that hides away some components and a top piece that you can use to display photos and other items.
  • Wall unit: When you want a unit that takes up less room, look for a wall TV stand. Also called wall units and wall-mounted units, these white sets mount directly on the wall and still give you a few shelves for organization.
  • Corner unit: This style is perfect for use in a small room. It fits right in a corner and lets everyone in the room see the television.
  • Console tables: Also called media console tables or TV consoles, this style looks like a standard table. The difference is that this TV console has more room for media and other important supplies.
What are some of the different styles?

White TV stands come in different styles such as traditional and contemporary. Some may have a high gloss black color painted inside to create contrast. Stands and cabinets come in traditional versions made from real wood, too. Some cabinets have a cottage look with lighter colors and plenty of storage for your TV, other electronics, and media.
