What Size TV Unit is Right for Different Sized TVs?

It's important to ensure that the TV unit you select is proportionate to your TV size for the best aesthetic and practical result.

Here's a general guide for a UK audience:

  1. Up to 32 inches TV: If you have a smaller TV, up to 32 inches, you should look for a TV unit that is at least 80 cm wide. This will give you enough room to comfortably place your TV, and maybe leave a small space for a few accessories.
  2. 40 to 43 inches TV: For TVs in this size range, a TV unit around 100 cm to 120 cm wide would be suitable. It provides ample space for the TV and a few other media components.
  3. 50 to 55 inches TV: If you have a TV that's 50 to 55 inches, you'll want a TV unit that's around 140 cm to 150 cm wide. This will accommodate your TV and leave room for other items.
  4. 65 inches and larger TV: For large TVs, you'll want a TV unit that's at least 180 cm wide. This will provide enough support for your TV and offer extra space for media equipment.

Remember, these are just guidelines.

Always measure your TV and the proposed space for the unit before making a purchase.

Also, consider the layout of your room, the viewing distance, and how you plan to use the unit (for example, how much storage you need or what other equipment you will place on it) when deciding on the size of your TV unit.

In terms of height, aim to position your TV so the centre of the screen is at eye level when seated.

This may vary depending on your specific seating, but it's a good starting point to ensure comfortable viewing.
