Media Storage

As the home of DVDs, video game consoles and other home electronics, your media storage needs to be plentiful. It should be able to house all your favorite movies and keep cords in check, as well as add a nice design element to your living room or home theater. Whether you need a small television stand, credenza or a full-blown home entertainment center with media towers, there are thousands of media storage options to choose from.

How big should my media console be?

The size of your media center is dictated by both the size of the space and your storage needs. If you are a movie buff with a large DVD collection, you will need a large home entertainment center with media storage towers and a tv console for DVD players and video game consoles. If you're working with a small space, you might only have room for a TV cart.

Regardless of space constraints and size preferences, you want to make sure that the total width of your television stand is greater than the total width of your TV. After all, if a television is hanging off the media console, someone might easily knock it over as they walk by. You'll also need to measure the space and find a unit that doesn't overwhelm the room or block doorways or walking paths.

What media stand material works for my space?

As you pick out your material, be sure to consider the style of the space and your overall durability requirements. Wood tends to be the reigning champion in terms of media storage material. It is sturdy and comes in many finishes — including walnut, ash, oak and cherry — to accommodate many styles. Veneered plywood is always a popular choice since it's more affordable, though the quality might not be up to par. Glass and plastic are sleeker options, while metal finishes look trendy while also ensuring durability. In the end, the material is also dictated by your family's needs; for example, glass and metal media consoles with sharp edges aren't ideal for small children.

Where should I place my TV stand?

The layout of your room and the placement of other furniture often determines where your entertainment center will go. Your sofa or sectional should ideally face your TV stand; after all, you want to be able to relax while watching television. As you're figuring out your space, measure all your furniture and create a mock layout to determine what goes where. If you have a more flexible floor plan, avoid placing your TV in an area with bad glare. During the day, try different parts of the room to determine optimal placement.

Kingsley Ravenwood Black Component Stand

I highly recommend this cabinet for price and functionality.: I highly recommend this cabinet for price and functionality. I ordered it in the late evening it shipped for free and it arrived three days later in perfect condition. My only suggestion is eliminate the back behind any components. The shelves are not deep enough if anything is plugged into a standard sized amplifier. This will also create better airflow for all of the components.

Better than expected: Received this item in just a couple of days from request. Easy to put together and that's coming from a 71 year old. Color is on the darker side which was exactly what I was looking for. Good quality.

Pleased: We were trying to find a TV stand to go with our TV surround. After unsuccessful trips to a number of furniture stores in our area, we decided to try ordering online. This Crosley stand is a similar design to our surround and the color is a very close match. Most people who have seen it don't realize that the stand was bought separately from the surround. This stand was economical, well-built and not difficult for my husband to assemble. We are very pleased with our purchase.

Nice TV stand: Very nice looking TV stand. Definitely overpriced but still a nice piece. Very easy to assemble, but feels like it's not the best quality given how light it is. Something with two planks of that size should be a lot heavier and sturdier. Overall we like it though and it serves it's purpose.

Looks exactly like picture.: I’m always skeptical to buy furniture online, but I when I got this I was so excited that it looked just like the pictures. The only downside is that the height is much shorter than i thought which is my fault for not paying attention to measurements. Overall though it’s a very modern pretty piece.

Very pretty: It's a very sturdy and attractive piece. It arrived quickly and my husband and I immediately started the assembly. The instructions are very clear but it still is a long process to assemble. It took us 4 & 1/2 hours. I can't figure out how it only took some people 2 hours, but nevertheless, it is finished and we are pleased with the result. It looks exactly like it does online. I would definitely recommend this. We are using this in our grandkids playroom so no worries about it tipping over!

Good Product, some Stability Issues: Ordered this stand for our home, came quickly from houzz, packaging was great, no nicks or dings. Product also went together quite easily, only took me about 30-45 minutes by myself. The stand is sturdy-ish, it has some wobble but nothing major, this could be alleviated when the television and accessories make their way on to the shelves. also noticed that some of the shelves did not butt up 100% to side panels. Would probably be better if everything was just screwed together instead of having the "locking-style screw and post method." Also noticed that some of the "stickers" to cover up the screws and lock screws did not completely cover the metal parts. All-in-all I am satisfied, it looks great with our Mid-Century Modern/ contemporary theme. Time will tell how it hold up, so far, so good. Would be 5 stars, if it were a little sturdier, and the stickers covered all of the metal pieces.

Great outcome, just a bit annoying to setup.: The product came in perfect condition and looked great when it was finally set up! I am very happy with it, but the instructions were very vague and it took quite some time to put it together. With a little patience it'll be well worth it.
