In many homes, the television and its stand are part of the décor. However, a beautifully decorated room can suffer from having an out-of-place piece of technology, such as the television, situated in the center. Choosing a stand and TV that fit into the style of the room can often help them to blend in with the rest of the pieces. In addition, decorating the television stand can give it style and make it look like it belongs in your design scheme.
Things You'll Need
- Decorative art
Place photographs on the stand. Placing pictures in frames that fit into the style of the room can help the stand to blend in like it was another piece of the furniture. For instance, if your room is more modern, place black-and-white pictures into silver or sleek-looking frames. If possible, try to match the colors and styles of the frames to that of the television and its stand.
Situate flowers in vases or plants in pots around the television. Vegetation can brighten up cold technology devices, such as televisions. Choose plants and containers that match the colors and design of your room. If your décor is soft, select pastel colors to complement the design scheme.
Stack books around your television and on the stand. Books add a touch of sophistication to almost any room in which they are displayed. The shapes of the books will also likely complement your television as well and will look good situated next to it. Either rest the books up against the television, or stack them next to it.
Place pieces of decorative art around the television and on the stand. Pitchers, vases and containers can brighten up the television area and add design as well. Choose pieces that match the color scheme and style of the room.
Tips & Warnings
- Place your television on pieces of furniture, such as shelves and tables, instead of opting for traditional TV stands and entertainment centers. Doing so will make your stand look more like furniture and less like a television holder.
