Whether you’re a self-appointed film critic, or you can’t turn away from Love Is Blind, your TV is likely a focal point in your living room. While many people opt for wall mounted screens, media consoles and TV stands are still an essential piece of furniture, especially in small spaces where they can pull double duty, providing much needed additional storage on top of hiding unsightly cords, cables, routers, modems, and cable boxes.

A well-chosen media console or TV stand can immediately make your room look more cohesive and sophisticated, and though they have a reputation for being pricey, they don’t always have to be. While some pieces are definitely more of an investment, there are countless options that are affordable without compromising on style. If you’re thinking about upgrading your home entertainment setup, check out our favorite media consoles and TV stands for any budget, any style.
