We recommend choosing a unit one to two inches longer than your TV. Top tip: Remember, screens are measured diagonally, and TV units are measured horizontally, so your calculations may need to be converted.
For a 55-inch (140 cm) screen, choose a TV stand that measures at least 57 inches (145 cm) long. A longer stand offers more space for decorative items.
Wires are easy to hide with a purpose-built TV unit. They feature cable management holes in the rear, unlike sideboards, which are often used instead.
