As we head into fall, we bet that you've been thinking about crisp, cooler days for weeks, and are beginning to furnish your home for winter. You may have treated yourself to a new set of flannel sheets, velvet accent pillows for the sofa, and a faux-fur throw for your home office. But if you're looking for something that will have a major impact in cozying up your space, consider swapping your regular family room console for a fireplace TV stand. They add instant warmth—visually and literally—to any space, plus have all the handy cabinets and draws for stashing everything from gaming equipment to kid's toys. Read on for our top recommendations, plus our best shopping advice.
What to Consider
First up is to make sure that the stand fits the TV you have, or the one you plan to buy. Fireplace TV stands are advertised by width or the screen size they accommodate, but also take note of the console’s height. You’ll want to add it to the height of the TV, plus its stand, so the screen is at the appropriate eye level, and the entire setup is in proportion with the rest of the room’s furniture.
All TV fireplaces are electric and typically put out roughly 4,600 to 5,200 BTUs of heat. Some have a single on/off setting, but with others you can adjust the heat, and even the LED flames separately, which is a nice feature. Also, not all fireplace TV stands come with remote controls. The majority are made of manufactured wood, with pre-drilled holes for cable management and many offer adjustable shelves.
If you’re looking for something snazzy, there are fireplace TV stands that come with neon LED light kits to change the color of the flames, backlight the entire unit, and illuminate the shelves. Beyond that, it’s all about overall style. The majority of consoles have a traditional or rustic look, though there are some modern and contemporary options on the market.
