- How Can I Make My TV Stand Higher
If you discover that the TV is not high enough after you have completed the installation, you can decide to increase its height. Some may consider replacing the old stand entirely and buying a new, higher one, but you do not need to do this.
You can simply increase the height of the old one and this can help you to save money.
When increasing the height of the TV stand, make sure that the four legs of the stand are even so that the stand will not tilt and cause the TV to fall off.
The damaging effect can be devastating.
- How to Increase the Height of your TV Stand.
Increasing the height of your TV stand is very simple. Check below for helpful tips on how to increase the height of your TV stand.
Raise the legs
If you decide to use the old TV stand rather than buy a new one, then you can raise the legs of the old TV stand to raise the TV. The best way to do this is to replace the legs of the old TV stand.
You will need to be an expert in furniture making to be able to do this effectively. The furniture expert has to remove the old legs and get four new legs that are longer to replace them so that the TV stand can be higher.
He will need to polish the new legs and the entire TV stand to make it look like a new product and remove traces of the replacement.
Instead of changing the legs of the TV stand, you can also increase its height by adding support to each of the legs. The supports come in different shapes and heights. You will only need to screw them to the feet of each leg.
This will automatically increase the height of the TV stand.
However, there is a limit to how the supports can lift the TV stand. You also need to choose carefully when buying such supports or shoes for the TV stand.
Make sure you opt for a support that can last for long and will not get damaged easily. If one support gets spoilt, it can cause an imbalance in the legs of the TV stand and this can pose a danger to your TV.
Replace the TV stand
If you do not want to try any of the modifications we have discussed above, you can decide to simply discard the old TV stand and go for a new one entirely.
All you have to do is to look for a TV stand that is taller than the one you are about to discard. In this case, you need to first determine how high you want the TV stand to be.
You may need to carry out some measurements using a measuring tape to determine this. You can then use the measurement as a guide to purchasing a new one for your TV.
When buying a new, higher TV stand, go for one that will perfectly suit the existing décor of the room where you want to install the TV stand. This will enable you to get value for money.
