How to Decorate with a Pine TV Stand
A pine TV stand can really add a lot of character to your room. This is one of the least expensive natural woods out there, but it can still be quite durable. You can make it work within your design style and it will have a lot more warmth and character then just going with a cheap laminate piece. This can work within your overall theme or decorating style. Here are a few tips for decorating with a pine TV stand.
You should make this piece as functional as possible. Even if it’s not big it can contain a lot of storage for your electronics and DVDs. The great thing about working with wood furniture is it allows you to also add in different actual elements such as wicker baskets that can be used for CD or electronics storage. It could even function as a makeshift toy box.
Change up the color. This kind of wood is often left of a natural color. This can be quite predictable. You may be able to find a dark stained piece and people might not even be able to guess what kind of wood it is just because it’s so unusual. This allows you to save money but at the same time you can match your new furniture to your existing pieces. This is especially important if you have a dining room family room or kitchen combination. You’ll need to carry the wood tones of cabinets and match it to your other furniture throughout the space so that you have a cohesive look. This way your space looks like you actually decorated it.
Another option for a pine TV stand is to incorporate it into an overall theme. This of course can be quite rustic. You can use it with dark leather furniture. You’ll want to bring in more feminine touches so that the space doesn’t seem too masculine or overwhelming. Another option would be to go with more of a country look. You can bring in a lot of brightly colored fabrics and patterns for more of a modern country style and then just use a few of your favorite charming accessories.
You can also work a plain TV stand into a traditional design style. In this case you want to go with an oversized hutch or bookcase system. This can be the focal point of your room and it’s great if you live in a home without a lot of architectural details. You can just add these in with your furniture to really make a big impact. It also gives you the opportunity to put your own unique touch on classic design.
