Best solid wood tv stand - Top 10 reviews

Here's why you want your TV stand made from solid wood over other available materials

Alright, some furniture education time! It is quite likely that most of the wooden objects you see in your daily life is not actually real solid wood. They’re compressed or engineered wood. When you see furniture listings in mega e-commerce websites going for 2-digit or 100-200 dollars, that’s what they are. Also, in case you’ve been to many home depot stores, there are aisles lined with them Essentially, the wood is ‘man-made’ by taking wood shavings, saw dust, wood fibers and other wood particles and compressing them into a block using high heat and pressure. Hence both the terms ‘compressed’ or ‘engineered’ wood. They’re then coated with laminate or veneer to give it the appearance of actual wood. This is what you see most often.

Real solid wood, through and through

Real solid wood is not cheap. We want to make sure we put that upfront. It is the dust and filings of this real and solid wood that makes compressed wood as a by-product and if by-product furniture costs around 100-200 bucks, the real thing is definitely going to cost more. But, the advantages of real solid wood are more than worth their price. Here’s a few for you to consider:

  1. They look like authentic wood which adds an air of elegance and class to your living room. Compressed or engineered wood is made a lot to look like the real thing but you can tell by the symmetry and uniformity of their surface design that they were manufactured by humans in a factory
  2. Real solid wood has a far longer life than artificial compressed wood. It holds its look for longer as well
  3. Compressed particle wood has thin laminate or veneer over them. This is easy to get chipped off with use. Especially if you move homes, one ride in the movers truck can be the end of them
  4. A nuanced but significant advantage real wood has is that is isn’t cheap. Manufacturers maintain a much higher quality of products when they know users are paying a pretty penny for them and will have high expectations. Compressed wood furniture is far more likely to be wobbly, misaligned at the nuts and bolts etc. Here, the manufacturers know that a customer will be okay with a sub-standard $150 TV stand for instance, aka, you get what you pay for

Not that you needed a lot of convincing, but the above reasons are all why our team at LRT always recommends real solid food in any furniture over compressed or engineered wood. We have researched and reviewed a list of 10 beautiful TV stands, any of which would help make your living room a beautiful place to be!
