Measure the front of your television. Unlike picture size, which is determined by measuring on a diagonal (lower left to upper right), the width of the TV is ascertained by measuring from the lower right corner to the lower left. Write this number down.
The corners can be a useful place to locate your hardware, as it utilizes an area of your room that is often wasted - and placing your equipment along a wall can often encroach too far into your living space.
However, an advantage of the enclosed cabinet like the WE Furniture Espresso corner TV stand pictured below is the doors can be closed and give the room a cleaner, tidier look.
Input the equation into your calculator. Use the smaller measurement of the two walls as both the A and B measurements. For example, if the smaller measurement is 20 inches, you want to input 20 squared (or 20 x 20) plus 20 squared (or 20 x 20). Once you have the answer (in this case it is 800), find the square root of the number and you will have the size, in inches, your TV must be smaller than in order to fit onto a TV stand (in this case it is about 28 inches).
