There’s no doubting that a wall mounted television looks great. But it has to be done right! A TV that has been incorrectly wall mounted can cause damage to the TV itself and your wall. If it has been wall mounted in the wrong spot, it can also look completely out of place.
There are plenty of things to consider when wall mounting a television. Here are our top three tips.
You don’t want to put your TV up on the wall only to find out the afternoon sun blazes in turning everything to glare. Make sure you take the time to look around your property, sit facing the area you want the TV to be mounted in and try it at different times of the day.
The Right Tools
Having the right tools at hand are essential. Equipment such as a drill, the right size drill bit, a stud finder and a screwdriver tend to be the absolute minimum of essentials. If you haven’t used these items before, or it’s been awhile, it might be time to consider whether you should be practising on your TV wall mount.
Use the Right Mount
One of the biggest issues is homeowners and business owners not using the right wall mount for the television. You don’t want to have to take your TV off the mount just to access your HDMI ports for your consoles to connect to. The first decision you need to make is whether you want a swivel wall mount or a fixed mount, and whether that option is best for your television.
