As an alternative to a wall mounted television, mount TV stands were also developed. These are essentially a traditional TV stand with an incorporated bracket giving a similar look to a wall mounted TV.
Go to my in-depth guide to find out more information about choosing glass flat panel TV stands.
This type of stand will usually leave the top surface free for placing your Blu-ray player, or even your centre speaker if you have a surround sound speaker system.
The thickness of the glass, the type of cable management and the weight of the TV you are going to put on it are all part of the equation.
TV stands with an attached mount are a relatively new concept in TV furniture, combining the aesthetics of a wall mounted television with the practicality of a glass or wood TV stand.
The main advantages of a mount TV stand as opposed to wall mounting a television is a significant increase in flexibility of positioning and repositioning. It will also often have superior cable management.
The stand may just allow for hanging the TV, or there are models which also include shelving underneath to store all your AV components too. One of the best TV stand mounts I have seen is the TransDeco TD600ES TV Stand pictured below.
