Cristina Bird TV Stand November 03rd, 2018 - 09:08:15
The IKEA TV stand. So let's look at the basic features of this Media Console and how it works out. For me, the length of the unit is 160 centimeters. So that's perfect for fitting something like a Samsung 55 inch TV that measures at about 124 centimeters long so room on the sides to fit some speakers. If I need to the depth is just under 42 centimeters and is plenty of room to fit a typical flat panel TV stand, but not too deep that it ends up taking a bunch of room.
The center storage area is open and is perfect for a receiver or a cable box that needs line-of-sight for your remote or a center speaker for a nice 5.1 setup. The shelf in the middle is also adjustable, so you can move it up or down, or just remove it entirely. There's about 35 by 51 centimeters of space in here so measure devices accordingly to see if they'll fit to the sides of the unit, our slide-out drawers - and this is perfect for keeping devices from gathering dust again.
The shelving units are completely adjustable in here, and I find these drawers perfect for storing gaming consoles. Like my ps4, with all my controllers, the back of the unit is not fully enclosed, so your devices or gaming systems will get some ventilation even when the doors are closed, but I'll probably open the drawers when playing on my ps4 just to help with air flow. The gap on the back also allows for a decent the wires to be routed around, and you can choose to hide the bulk of the cables on one of the side, drawers away and out of sight.
The frame construction is similar to most entry-level IKEA products, using particle board as the core and a thin layer, paint and plastic to give it its white glossy finish. While the white plastic layer is a little thin and you'll notice it chip away when assembling the more heavily used areas like the top and the shelves, have an extra layer, fiber board, so hopefully they're much more resistant to damage. Overall, the Assembly of the unit is fairly simple, only requiring a hammer for a couple plastic nails and a screwdriver for the rest of the screws and locks.
The edges of all the panels are also covered with some protective tape. That's always ultra satisfying to remove overall a pretty nice well-designed unit for the price, while the IKEA bias only comes in one color, glossy white, you may have noticed that my unit has a wooden top instead and this is not a default configuration but a modification.
