With flatscreen TV’s, you can get a way with small TV stands because the TV footprint is much smaller. We have a 65″ Samsung flatscreen and our stand is fairly compact.
Older TVs had a large square or rectangle base. Now the base of flatscreens are pretty small given the size of the TV screens.
This opens up some nice stand options including tiered, corner and portable. I prefer a sleek mid-century stand, but that’s just me.
