In the early days of flat panel televisions, the vast majority of TV units were glass TV stands.
One potential drawback with these corner designs is that they can provide limited space for your AV equipment - especially if the rear goes to a point to fit exactly in the corner. Therefore, if you have a range of amplifiers, players and games consoles to install, then you might need to consider where they are all going to go.
This type of stand can also allow you to have the TV at a greater height when compared to a glass or wooden stand - which will often offer a lower viewing position when the TV is in place.
However, a wooden TV stand brings its own issues such as they often have back panels which make it difficult for ventilation, access and running the cables.
If your room is full of wooden furniture and flooring then a glass TV stand may not fit into look you want for your room.
Our buying guide for TV stands covers all the options you have when looking for TV furniture, and gives you an overview of the benefits of each type.
