Thinking of upgrading your TV Stand with adjustable storage and wider top? Well, Simpli Home Warm Shaker Solid Wood TV Media Stand might satisfy your needs as a new Entertainment Stand.
There’s a lot of storage on this piece. And what makes it better is, you can adjust the shelves according to the height you need.
Even though there’s a lot of storage on this TV Stand, it doesn’t look so bulky for your living room. It might look big on the photos, but in person, the size is just enough for an average-sized family room.
Since this Media Stand is a bit pricey (over $300.00), you might wonder how sturdy it is. Well, it’s made of high-quality pine wood. Every piece is solid which means you’ll not get even a single piece of laminated particle wood. We have nothing against particle wood though, but, who wouldn’t want to buy furniture with solid wood?
You’ll like how thick they cut the wood. It will give you the notion that every piece of this Warm Shaker TV Stand will be of good service to you for as long as you need it.
Aside from having a thick cut, we also noticed that each piece is perfectly cut. This means you won’t get an uneven portion when you’re done with the assembly.
So, since everything is solid wood, is the back part also made of pine wood? Well, it’s not. They used plywood for the back part, but also colored it with most of the pieces’ finish (distressed grey), so it doesn’t look out of place at all.
Colors and Finish
You’ll see four available colors in the market. And these colors are distressed grey, black, honey brown, and tobacco brown.
For the one we have here, they finished it with distressed grey color. And as per the manufacturer, they hand-finished it to keep the grains they want to pass to their customer. They also used protected NC lacquer to seal not only the color but also the wood itself.
Since there are several colors available, which one do you prefer for your living room?
We think there’s nothing special with the looks of this Simpli Home Warm Shaker Solid Wood TV Media Stand. The design is straightforward, just like the typical Media Stand you see out there. Meaning the façade won’t entice you that much. But, of course, we all have our own preferences. So, this traditional design might still “wow” you more than it wowed other owners.
You’ll get two cabinets, two drawers, and one open shelf on this piece. They also used solid wood on the cabinets’ door. Which we think it’s better if they used clear glass just to add a little character on its looks.
The brushed nickel knobs match the classy look of this TV Stand. And we like how it blends with the rustic color of this Simpli Home Warm Shaker. Well, just to give you an idea, you can upgrade the knobs if you feel like this TV Stand needs something more. They used standard sized screws, so it will be easier for you to find knobs that will fit on this one.
Now, let’s look at the back part. You’ll see big round cutouts which are meant for organizing your media wiring. It’s amazing that each hole is bigger than the usual cutouts we’ve seen in other Entertainment Cabinets. These cutouts make it easier for you to manage the wires from this Media Stand up to your socket. Also, connecting your media set won’t be a headache anymore.
As A TV Stand
We like how wide the top part of Simpli Warm Shaker. It gives you a lot of room not only for your television but also for other things. It’s only 47 inches long (almost 4 feet), but you could use this on your 55-inch wide television. Well, it will look smaller if you’ll place a bigger TV on this.
This furniture is 29 inches tall and perfectly leveled to your eyes. This means your eyes won’t get stressed while watching TV because you don’t need to look up or down while sitting on your couch.
Well, it’s amazing that they do not limit this piece as a TV Stand only. You can also use it as a plain cabinet or maybe use it to add character in your living room.
Cabinets and Drawers
Like we mentioned above, this Media Furniture has two cabinets, two drawers, and one open shelf.
Let’s look at each storage so you could better picture out how great it is.
The two cabinets are located at both sides of the open shelf, while they placed the two drawers at the bottom of the three storage.
Each cabinet has one adjustable shelf. Well, you could only adjust the shelf two inches above and two inches below of its original place. This gives you control on how much space you need for your things, right? Also, if you think you still need more space for your things (maybe a big speaker), you could remove it for good. That’s the beauty of these adjustable shelves. As for the hinges, they hid it inside the cabinet so it won’t mess with the design of this Entertainment Stand.
Next is the open shelf. It is wider than most of the storage in this piece. It’s because it’s at the center and will carry most of your Entertainment Devices. Just like the two cabinets at its sides, it also has adjustable shelves. Well, the difference is, it has two adjustable dividers, unlike each cabinet that only has one. You could also remove the dividers if you don’t need it, and to give better space for the things you want to store on it.
At the bottom of all the storage, you’ll find two large drawers. You’ll like how functional these drawers are. It’s not that deep though, but it’s wide enough to complement the lack of deeper space. It’s a good space for hiding unused things in your living room, right? It has metal glides, which are so easy to pull and push. It doesn’t allow the drawers from slipping out when you pull it.
Overall dimension is 47″ L x 18″ W x 29″ H.
It’s literally wide and long. The width is 18 inches or a foot and a half, and 47 inches or almost four feet long. This only means you need a significant space to place this one. This might not look great for a small spaced living room because this will only make your room look crowded. Yet, even though it’s wide and long, it still doesn’t look bulky.
The open or center shelf is 19″ L x 15.7″ W x 4.9″ H (each shelf). And since the shelf is adjustable, the height of it varies with how you will adjust it.
Side cabinets are 10″ L x 15.7″ W x 17.3″ H, while the drawers’ dimension is 18.3″ L x 13.2″ W x 3.15″ H.
Let’s be honest with you. The assembly is tedious. You need a tremendous amount of patience and time because there are a lot of pieces to connect to each other. You might need someone to help you out with the alignment because some pieces are heavy.
The instruction they included in the package is very detailed. It has photos on it so you could easily follow each step.
