Getting a media station of the right size is the most important thing for a living room. Since it is going to hold a bit of weight, you will want it to be a sturdy structure for your TV and other media accessories. Also make sure that the width of your TV stand is greater than the width of your TV. This prevents from bumping into the sides of the TV that might be hanging off the media console, potentially knocking it over. An enclosed structure is usually more preferable since it has a few cabinets for storing some attachments as well.
