How to Choose the Right Size TV Stand

How to Choose the Right Size TV Stand

Modern Blaze offers a variety of TV stands with built-in fireplaces. Our customers often ask us what size TV stand should they choose for their TV's. This TV stand size guide will help answer this question!

The very first thing to know is that TV's are actually measured diagonally. This means that a 55 inch TV is not actually 55" wide.

Here is a simple formula to calculate the width of your screen based on the diagonal size: 

Screen Diagonal X 0.872 = Screen Width


Another important thing to note is that the frame around the actual screen is also not included in the measurement. These factors make determining the appropriate furniture width for your TV a little more challenging. The guide below will give you a general idea of the minimum stand size you should use for your TV.

TV stand size Guide

Our TV stand size guide will provide you with the minimum stand size recommended for your TV so that your TV is not wider than the stand, which could pose as a safety hazard.

NOTE: This guide should be used for reference only, the size of the frame may vary by manufacturer and model. We recommend measuring your TV before making a purchase.

TV dimensions are obtained by measuring the screen diagonally from one end of the screen to the other (not including the trim/frame). Recommended TV Stand width assumes a 1-inch frame added to it.
