You can even go to another level and create brackets that match the theme of the room. For example, try glued-together kitchen utensils for an eye-grabbing set of brackets in the kitchen. Or how about gluing old video cassettes to a thin metal bracket for a shelf next to the TV? You can also take cheap brackets and decorate them. Try attaching CDs onto brackets for a striking stereo shelf or sticking ribbons and bows on a plain shelf bracket in a little girl’s room? The sky’s the limit. Go wild with some decorative shelf brackets.
Disadvantages Of TV Stands. TV stands can be quite bulky and often dominate the room when floor space is at a premium. When using a stand, you often have to arrange the furniture based on the available space left over, rather than on the optimal viewing position. Unless you are lucky enough to have a dedicated home theatre room that is off limits to kids and pets, your TV and other equipment is likely to be at risk from being knocked over. Stands can be quite fragile and it only takes a small bump in order to tip them over and send thousands of dollars worth of equipment crashing to the floor.
