Should media console be wider than TV?

Last Updated: 21st April, 2021

Because TVs are measured diagonally and TV consoles are measured horizontally, be sure to record and consider the width of your screen when choosing your console. We recommend getting a console that is at least a few inches wider than your TV.

In this way, should your TV stand be wider than your TV?

If you have a TV stand and a TV with the same measurement, the TV stand is actually wider. The TV stand should be at least as wide as your TV, although you can also opt for a much wider TV stand and then center the TV, giving you room to set other items on the sides.

Subsequently, question is, how wide should TV console be? Here are some suggested minimum widths for television stands based on the size of the set: Under 32 inch sets - 28 inches in width for stand. 32-39 inch - 30-45 inches. 50-54 inch - 46-49 inches.

Simply so, how wide should a TV stand be for a 55 inch TV?

For example, if you have a 55TV and do not want any over hang on the TV console, you will want to get one that is at least 50″ wide. Measure your TV to get it's true width to be sure though. A rule of thumb for us here is to have about 3 inches (give or take) of overhang on each end of your TV stand.

Is 55 inch TV too big for bedroom?

Crutchfield recommends a distance of 1 to 1.5 times diagonal screen size for 4K TVs and 1.5 to 2.5 for 1080p sets. Based on that, my 55 inch TV would have been fine anywhere between 55 and 82 inches, meaning that it would be a tad too small for my room.
