Behind these slatted doors, the BDI hallway features six spacious compartments, each with its own cutout for routing cables to the television perched on top.

8. Monoprice commercial series flip-flop TV stand
Best minimalist TV stand
You don’t have to build a huge sanctuary dedicated to your TV if you watch it every now and then. While many people leave a TV sitting front and center in a room, with a heavy stand to house it, there are more basic solutions. Monoprice’s Commecial Series Trestle TV Stand is one such solution that provides a simple yet stylish option for anyone who just wants a basic place to mount their TV.

The internal dimensions of each square shelf are 13 x 15 x 13 inches, so you have plenty of room to put the Xbox Series X or PS5 inside (with the base removed). The size of the shelves is also perfect to hold all your records.
10. Monarch Specialties TV Stand in Dark Taupe
Best TV support for PS5 and Xbox Series X
So you need the perfect TV stand for your brand new game consoles. Unfortunately, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 aren’t as compact as their predecessors, and that can make it a bit more difficult to integrate them well into your media console. The Monarch Specialties TV stand is fine, however (and the Dark Taupe color keeps it independent from the platform).
The Monarch Specialties TV Stand has a single cutout section below where your TV would sit. Thanks to this space in the shelves, it actually has enough space to accommodate the Sony or Microsoft console standing. Meanwhile, an open section on the right side of the stand can also provide the space you need to hold a second console. There’s also plenty of space if you want to fit both or one of your consoles on their sides. The TV cabinet includes a small drawer in which your accessories can hide. And, don’t worry, even with an Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 installed on this stand, there’s room for a Nintendo Switch dock as well.
