Wall-mounting a TV gives a better overall look and elevates the screen to a far better viewing position while also freeing up space in the room. The only thing is that you do not know how to magically conjure the TV up onto that wall. Sound like a challenge? You’re not alone.
Getting your TV attached successfully to the wall gives you more room, a better view, and keeps it out of the reach of youngsters and pets. But before you begin, you may be wondering about how you will manage the task. Well, don’t be concerned that is what we are here for:
1) Where to mount the TV?
TVs today are in almost every room in the house. Choosing whether to mount the TV, or leave it on its stand, depends upon the space and personal preference. Remember to keep all these things in mind during the decision making process.
You can mount your TV over the fireplace, but unless you never use it, you are better not putting it there. The concern in this position will be the heat. If you are wanting to connect your TV to Wi-Fi and stream content, you need to think about the cables needed for this. If you would like to attach any external devices, you will know how you will hide all the cords attached to the TV.
2) Is your wall mount compatible with your TV?
Some TVs are VESA Compliant and work with every TV wall mount and are designed for the TV’s size. There are several wall mounts available today. Even the most modern, lightest televisions are quite a bit heavier than your largest framed pieces. Because of this, you will need a stud (or two) to anchor the screws.
3) Do you have all of the tools?
Make sure you have got the tools needed to mount a television to your wall. You will need a permanent magnet, drill, a drilling bit that is around the same size because of the mount screws and a screwdriver bit. If you do not have the tools you need, and you do not wish to purchase them, you could rent them from a home improvement store.
4) Are you going to conceal the wires?
For a clutter-free look conceal the wiring, as exposed TV cords can be an eyesore. One of the most practical options is to use paintable conduits; especially in a rented apartment where the tenant is not allowed to damage the walls.
5) On which angle do you mount the TV?
Another wall mount consideration is the viewing angle. If you want to angle your TV toward where you sit, you would possibly want to choose an adjustable mount that allows you to rotate the TV to different angles.
6) How to mount the TV?
First, you will need to identify the type of wall you’re going to attach it to. The most common walls are a wood stud, metal stud, and concrete/block or brick. Each type requires a different approach.
To summarize, when talking about selecting a TV wall mount, you should analyse price as well as the benefits of that wall mount. You should pay attention to the wall material and the layout of the room.
Also, try to think about where you want to be sitting while enjoying the TV. Having all this in mind will help you choose the most suitable option for your specific situation. In case there are any more, just give us a call on 1300 016 017 for TV wall mounting service.
