Which Is Best? Choosing between a TV wall mount and a TV stand is totally dependent on your personal requirements. TV stands are good for those people who may not have a wall that is strong enough to support the weight of their TV set, or of course for those who don’t like the look of wall mounted TVs. However, TV wall mounts are a great way to maximize space in smaller rooms and also make sure that your precious TV is out of the way of children and pets.
You don’t have to buy decorative shelf brackets - you can make them instead. With a little imagination and some common sense, you could take many household or flea market objects and turn them into creative and unique shelf brackets. Bicycle handlebars, old baseball bats, hockey sticks and children’s toys could all be usable as brackets. Just remember that first and foremost they need to provide stable and uniform support for the shelves that they are meant to hold up.
