Your TV should be ideally mounted at a height that requires the least amount of effort to watch. Watching a TV mounted too high will result in not only unpleasant viewing experience, but also a distorted image.
There are a handful of measurements that might help you decide, but the rule of thumb is to have your screen mounted centered in your eye sight while in a seated position. Of course, you may prefer to look up or down at the screen, or you might predict having guest over for super bowl when the will be standing half the time, or maybe even you want to give your dog an easier time watching TV while sitting down. A good way to make sure is that you can cut a cardboard in the measurements of your screen and put it on the wall where you want the TV mounted and adjust as desired.
No matter if you want to mount your TV or relocate your mounted TV, hide the wires, or mount sound bars, our professional technicians at FixTman will take care of your request with fine attention to details.
Where should I mount my TV?
TVs being the most commonly used electrical device around the house, is typically placed where all the house members can have easy access to. Therefore, there are some factors that you might want to consider.
Since the TV, however powerful, cannot out shine the sun, mounting your TV under too much sun exposure can greatly impact the viewing quality during the day. If TV relocation is by any reason impossible, you can start thinking about blinds, shades, anti-glair screen shields, and your TV’s glare reduction options.
Before choosing a position for mounting your TV, make sure that there will be an outlet close enough to the TV that you can connect your TV either directly, or through plastic cord covers for hiding the wires.
Size to distance
There are simple size-to-distance measurements online that you can use to figure out how big a TV best matches your viewing field based on how far you will be sitting from the screen. If you have already bought a TV or are set on purchasing a certain size, you can figure out how far away it’s best to setup your furniture.
