Need a small tv stand? Look no further. We researched the best small TV stands for each category including tiered, corner and portable stands.
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.
FITUEYES Swivel Floor TV Stand for 32″-65″ TVs
If you don’t want to drill holes in the wall, the FITUEYES Swivel Floor Stand may be just what you need to securely mount a 32″-65″ TV. This is a lightweight, corner TV stand that allows plenty of room for cables and related equipment yet fits well in a small space. It’s equipped with brackets for easy mounting.
Plus, there’s a “safety-lock” designed to prevent your television from slipping off the stand. You can turn your TV 30° left or right for the ideal angle. The wood base goes with most furniture and decor. One drawback: It may not be compatible with all TVs, so check the specifications carefully before buying.
Pyle Premium LCD Flat Panel TV Tripod
This universal VESA mount stand works with the most modern TVs and monitors. You can adjust the height of the stand (32.3″-59.8″) to put the TV at the desired level. Its foldable design allows for maximum storage convenience. With its portability and durable steel alloy construction, it’s invaluable when you need to give a presentation or transport a display screen from one location to another.
Another helpful feature of this versatile stand: its ability to rotate 360°, so you can maximize viewing capabilities. It comes with a locking mechanism and non-skid rubber feet. The stand accommodates televisions and monitors up to 32″ and holds 22 lbs. Several customers reported that this unit did not come with mounting screws, or that if screws were included, they were not sized appropriately.
Lumina Fireplace TV Stand
If you have a bigger TV and want to add some ambiance to your living room, consider the Lumina Fireplace TV Stand. It accommodates TVs up to 70″ and can hold up to 120 lbs. The fireplace spans 23″ in width. You can switch between different levels of flame brightness, and you can even enjoy the fire-like effect with or without heat.
This white TV stand has a decidedly modern look, as it’s a combination of laminated particleboard and sturdy metal components. It comes with six shelves for storing everything you need for movie nights or gaming sessions. One slight inconvenience with this stand is that assembly generally requires two people, and some customers noted that the instructions aren’t clear.
VASAGLE TV Cabinet with Fireplace
If you’d prefer a fireplace stand that looks a little more rustic and rugged, have a look at the VASAGLE TV Cabinet with Fireplace. This wood TV stand fits 50″, 55″, and 60″ TVs. What’s unique about it are its wood “barn-style” cabinet doors, complete with the characteristic “X’ across the front. When you want extra-cozy home entertainment, just turn on the built-in electric fireplace.
It provides both light and warmth. This country-style entertainment center comes with 2 shelves behind the doors, so you can store gaming equipment, a BLU-Ray player, and other media equipment. The stand holds up to 66 lbs. Many satisfied customers also reported that the unit is incredibly easy to assemble.
Walker Edison WE Furniture Traditional Wood Fireplace Stand
Another relatively compact fireplace TV stand is the Walker Edison WE Traditional. It’s 2ft high, 58″ long, and 16″ wide (from top to bottom). It accommodates televisions up to 64″. This console can give your living area an especially cozy vibe, due in no small part to the faux log fireplace that you can use with or without heat.
The cabinets on the sides come with tempered glass doors, so you can see what’s inside. Perfect for people who like the look of a few books surrounding the mantel. Of course, you can keep media equipment or home decor in there, too.
Some customers reported that the wood is softer than they expected, leading to concerns about the stand’s durability. Also, a few people were disappointed because, unlike other fireplace stands, with this one, you can’t adjust flame brightness or heat. While heat and flames are controlled separately, each has only an on/off option.
Mobile TV Cart with Wheels
If you’re looking for a TV mounting system that allows for maximum portability, the Mobile TV Cart with Wheels may be just what you need. This universal stand on wheels accommodates most TVs measuring between 23″-55” and includes LCD, LED, flat, or curved screens, as long as they weigh 55 lbs or less.
The height-adjustable shelf provides plenty of space for a DVD player, laptop, or gaming gear. The stand comes with a build-in cord-management solution. You can neatly store all your cables and wires so they’re not an eyesore and won’t become hopelessly tangled. With its sturdy base and 4 wheels with locking casters, the unit can be moved around easily but is also well-designed to remain stationary when needed.
This is a go-to piece of equipment if you need to make presentations in multiple locations and don’t want to buy several TVs or monitors. A few customers reported difficulty in putting the stand together because of ambiguous instructions but were otherwise happy with it overall.

But the stand only works with a mounting hole that’s 16″ or less. It’s not compatible with VESA 24″x8″ and 24″x16″.
One thing customers especially appreciate about this small TV stand is that installation is hassle-free and can take as little as 15 minutes.
According to Amazon, there is a newer model of this media stand available, and it fits TVs ringing from 37″ to 70″. Like the slightly older version, it’s height-adjustable.
Universal TV Stand with Mount
When it comes to small TV stands, another that’s great for smaller appliances is the Universal TV Stand with Mount by Hemudu. It accommodates TVs from 19″-42”. Your TVs VESA pattern will need to be between 75mmx75mm and 200mmX200mm. You can buy this as a basic swivel floor stand, or purchase a variation of it that comes with shelves for ample storage space.
It’s equipped with a tilt function, 8 levels of height adjustment, and a 50° swivel mount (for left and right rotation). Its wire clip enables clutter-free cord storage. Despite its modest size, it’s highly durable and can hold up to 99 lbs.
VASAGLE Retro TV Stand
If there’s such a thing as a vintage entertainment center, the VASAGLE, Retro TV Stand definitely fits that description. Two inside shelves hold all your media equipment, and two push-to-open doors made it easy to reach in and grab whatever you need.

Plus, it’s incredibly sturdy, made of solid wood, and supported by solid rubber-wood canted legs, reinforced with screws and other hardware. It holds up to 110 lbs.

Each wheel comes with locking casters to avoid unwanted, accidental movement. Plus, this stand is adjustable in more ways than one.
You have some flexibility in widening its base, and you can set the height of your TV from 51″ to 67″. The columns of the rather tall TV stand are designed for tidy, discreet cable management. The unit features two shelves, one of which is ideal for a webcam, great for virtual conferences.
Another open shelf is intended as a home for a cable box, PlayStation, or whatever other gear you have. This durable dynamo holds up to 300 lbs, and it’s a smart choice if you want to mount a large TV without drilling holes in the wall.
What do TV screen measurements mean?
To understand television size, it’s important to know your measurements. The size of a screen is usually indicated by its diagonal measurement (the distance from the left top corner to the right bottom corner, or vice versa). However, there’s often a slight discrepancy between a TV’s advertised size and the screen’s actual viewing size. That’s because a small portion of the screen panel is taken up by the frame. Here are some examples of screen size versus viewing panel size.
Bezels (the borders between the screen and frame) and frames can add 1/2″ to 3″ of height and width to your TV, so it’s important to keep that in mind when deciding whether your appliance will fit within a given space. Additionally, the distance from the screen to the base stand can add more height to a TV.
What do you need to consider when choosing the right TV stand?
While there’s probably no such thing as the perfect TV stand, there are several things to keep in mind as you weigh your options.
First, measure the area where you plan to put the TV so you can be realistic about choosing a stand and TV that are the right size. When a stand is too small and narrow, there is a higher risk that your TV will tip over. The stand should be as wide as, or wider than, your television.
Think about the layout of the room you want to put the TV unit in. Some stands, such as wall units that swivel, are better for corners and smaller spaces. And you’ll probably want a style that matches the rest of your decor.
Material is another important factor. More durable stands are recommended for larger, heavier TVs. They’re also a good idea if you share your household with young children or pets.
Last, but not least, look for a stand that gives you the amount of storage space you need. Cabinet, drawer, and shelf space are ideal for keeping electronic equipment and accessories organized and out of the way. You can also use that space for books or room decor.
What can you do with an old entertainment center?
If you’ve outgrown your old entertainment center and you’re in search of a more modern TV stand, you don’t necessarily have to throw the original out. You may be able to re-purpose it. In fact, this topic was trending enough to lead to a contest where people submitted ideas for recycling TV stands. Here are some creative ways to put your old TV console to work.
One of the most “out-of-the-box” suggestions was to turn an old TV stand into a cocktail bar. Another option is to convert it into a sewing center. Other people use these as places to store scrapbooking and crafting supplies. Another idea is to turn the consoles into stand-alone pantries.
If you need a functional desk for a home office or college student apartment, you can do a little tweaking to turn your old TV stand into a place for studying and homework. And, you can always move your old media console into the garage for storing small tools. One contest hopeful thought it would be a good idea to use an old TV stand for breeding monarch butterflies.
The final takeaway: Like any other piece of functional furniture, you can use an old entertainment center for just about anything. So if you need to do some de-cluttering, instead of buying a sophisticated storage system, you may need to look no further than your gently (or maybe not-so-gently) used entertainment center.
