Coming up next we have another Ameriwood product. That should probably tell you that this company knows what they are doing when it comes to producing fireplace TV stands or consoles. This one, in contrast to the last one, comes in four different color options: cherry, distressed gray oak, gray, and white.
Its assembled dimensions are 26”H x 63”W x 18”D. This console will support TVs up to 70” and a maximum weight of 135 lbs. It is made of laminated particleboard with metal accents, but the real character of this console comes from the various color options which you can choose. Each one gives off a different feel and it is on you to decide what you and your home need.
Unlike our last entry, this fireplace tv console does not only come with open shelving, but also with two large cabinets which are perfect for storing DVD and Blu-ray players (and the discs for them), gaming consoles (and games), your cable box, and an audio system that is organized and easy to reach. The open shelving will hold up to 30 lbs. while the adjustable shelves behind each door will hold 10 lbs. The fixed shelves will hold 15 lbs. each. The firebox insert is 18” and can light up a room up to 400 sq. ft. and, just like the Home Chicago Fireplace TV Stand, can be used with or without heat. This makes it appropriate for both warm and cold weather use. The LED light is energy efficient and has up to 50,000 hours of life.
Just like our previous Ameriwood product, it ships flat to your door and it is recommended that two adults assemble it. Speaking of assembly, this time around very few people have reported any problems in terms of missing screws or improperly placed screw holes. Rather, the most severe issue we have found is that the components tend to be quite dusty out from the box, and thus need to be dusted off. This is not a big problem at all though, obviously.
This fireplace TV stand is a much more dominating presence than our last entry and will definitely catch some eyes while being in a room. Of course, this is all the more reason to buy it if you are looking for that type of furniture. It looks great and creates a cozy atmosphere with its light and television, and is great for curling up on a sofa with your family or loved ones.
One last reminder is that you should be careful about pets or children being around it while it is producing heat. The glass on the firebox insert can get quite hot while on, so it is worth being careful when it comes to this.
All in all, this is one great an high-quality fireplace TV stand.
