Why You Should Wall Mount Your Television

Published

on

Mounting your flat-panel TV has many advantages. Not only does it look great hanging on the wall, it’s safer and allows you to adjust the viewing angle so you always have the best picture.

Performance
Research shows picture quality degrades significantly when watching a flat-panel TV off center. In fact, one such study found that the “sweet spot” for seeing the most accurate picture on an LCD is merely one person wide. Get the most out of your TV by mounting it on the wall for optimal performance. Many wall mounts can extend, tilt and swivel, making it easy to find the best viewing angle and reduce glare from lights or windows.

Space & Style
Create valuable space on top of furniture or remove furniture altogether for a clean, modern look in any room. Mounting your TV on the wall and out of the way is a great way to emphasize its sleek, thin design

Safety
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, emergency rooms across the U.S. reported an estimated 20,000 injuries related to the instability of televisions in 2010. Protect your family by mounting your flat-panel TV securely on the wall. It’s the smartest way to prevent accidental bumping or smudging.

Make sure you purchase a quality wall mount, as not all TV mounts are created equal. Many mounts feature integrated cable management, post-installation adjustment capabilities, and decorative covers to conceal mounting hardware.

    Yep, I mount all my tvs on the wall. Use some white spackle when you move out for the holes and landlord won’t even notice.

    I need to mount my television on the wall. I think first though I’ll be investing in a new LED television and retire my old LCD television.

      Yeah, I’ve got an older Plasma in the bedroom that weighs a little over 100lbs.. I think I’m going to replace it with a lighter LED TV before going the wall mount route.

    I bought a major Entertainment center and TV right before the flat screen boom. It’s 35 inches and still has HD so I’m not quick to replace it, because it means getting rid of my entertainment unit too which was costly, but once I am ready, I’m still not sure I’ll know what TV to buy. I need to do a lot of research!
