Wall Mounting


Wall mounting your TV negates the problem of size; you no longer need to worry about the TV fitting in the space you have, as long as your wall is large enough for the TV.

You can therefore have a larger screen size, without worrying about how you’ll have to place it in your viewing room.

Most walls can support a TV, but you need to be particularly careful with stud walls. These walls are fine for mounting a TV of any size, but try to make sure the mounts go into the brick, and not the mortar, as the brick will provide a much more secure fitting.

To wall mount your TV you’ll need to choose a wall bracket that fits your model.

They’re available for all sizes of TV (including curved) and you can also select from models that allow them to be tilted left and right as well as up and down.

There are three basic types of bracket to choose from: fixed, tilt and full motion.

One type isn’t better than an other and which one you choose depends on where you plan to fix your TV and how much you think you’ll need to adjust it.

Fixed

The most basic mounts fix your TV flush to wall. Once it’s mounted you won’t be able to move the TV at all.

Tilt

These mounts let you angle the screen a few degrees up or down. This is useful if the TV is going to be high on the wall and you want to angle the screen down towards the viewer.

Full motion

These mounts usually have a moveable arm that allows the TV to extend out from the wall and be angled towards the viewer. It’s handy if you need to put the mount in a corner where the TV wouldn’t be able to sit flush or you just want to have more flexibility in how you arrange your living room.
