Whether you’re looking to design your own home theater or simply want to reorganize the space in your living room, you should consider the benefits of a television wall mount. The idea of installing a TV wall mount yourself might not seem like a big deal, but it requires a lot of decisions to be made and a fair amount of technical know-how as well. If you aren’t thrilled with the idea of all that work you can always hire an experienced TV mounting service to handle all the heavy lifting for you. Whatever you decide to do, here’s a few things you’ll have to consider for any TV wall mount project in your home.
Is Your Wall Tough Enough?
The most important thing about any TV wall installation is making sure your television is going to stay on the wall where you put it. After all, you don’t want your expensive new flat screen taking a dive because your wall couldn’t hold its weight or it wasn’t installed properly. Of course it’s always essential to mount your TV directly to the studs but even with a stud finder they can be a little tricky to find. A professional installer will have no trouble with this and can notify you of any other potential issues with your walls that you should be aware of.
A tangle of ugly cords hanging out the back can ruin the sleek appearance of a wall mounted television. Thankfully there’s a couple of options to keep them out of sight and out of mind. A cord concealer will house your dangling cords and attach right to your wall. You can camouflage it by painting it the same color as your wall and it shouldn’t attract any unwanted attention. The better option though is to thread the cords inside your wall. This is not easy and will require a professional TV mounting service to be done correctly without ruining your wires or your wall.
Television over Fireplace?
Mounting a television over fireplace may seem like a great way to utilize dead space in your room. However, there are a lot of complications that come along with this type of project and many TV mounting services wouldn’t recommend it. If you think it’s right for you, you’ll definitely want to seek the help of a professional who can make sure your TV is mounted securely and won’t experience any issues down the road.
The whole point of having a TV in the first place is be able to enjoy watching it. When mounting a TV on a wall you’ll be watching from whole new viewing angle. With your TV mounted a little higher than it would be on a traditional stand, you may encounter a different set of glares from lights and windows. An experienced TV mounting service will be able to offer advice on how and where to install your TV to reduce the nasty cosmetic side effects that could ruin your viewing experience.
