Did you buy a brand new television and will love to mount it on the wall to save some space? You might want to decide the place you wish to put it.

Guard your loved ones by mounting your flat-panel Television securely within the wall. It is the smartest way to prevent accidental bumping or smudging.

When mounting your tv on the wall, you should take into consideration what mounts fits the best your project and needs, from the tv wall mount, position, wall material, to viewing angle. 

Viewing Angle

Consider imagining your space and walking through to see what is the best viewing position and viewing the angle desired for your entertainment needs. To improve the viewing encounter, the bracket should be tilted up and down fifteen degrees so you can minimize any glare and open entry to the TV ports. Additionally, if you are using a full-motion mount, you could swivel it about forty-five degrees left or right depending on the viewing position (kitchen, living room, dining table, etc).

Wall mounts for TVs: horizontal length (Piece that attaches to wall)

When mounting your tv on the wall, consider using a 24′ ish length for the tv wall mount you will use, especially for those bigger tv sizes (TVs above 40′ screen size). This because in the effort of getting both studs hit (which will be the support for your heavy tv), you will have spacing between studs at least 16′ apart ( spacing for studs in USA is normally 16′-24′, please check your wall with a stud finder). If you have a tv wall mount with a length of 24′ and your wall is 16′ of spacing between studs, you will have more room for strap toggles (another technique for anchoring on hallow wall) for even more support. This only applies to installations on Drywall. See the video below.

TV Weight

This is the most important factor to check when deciding for the best mount for your project. Ratings for tv wall mount are mostly decided by the tv size, but are mostly picked up by the weight they can hold. This due to some factors including TVs getting lighter and bigger with the advance of technology. So by example if your tv wall mount was built in 1999 and your tv is from 2019, means the rating for the weight your tv mount can hold are wrong since a 2019 tv model will be lighter. Please check upon tv wall mount age, and tv model age, and decide for yourself, which mount better fits taking ratings into account. I recommend this mount for nowadays TVs which are becoming lighter and bigger. Some tv wall mounts brands, like Sanus, offer built-in cable management caps with for hiding your wires behind the tv, they are light-weight, sturdy, and easy to assemble tv wall mount.

It’s also vital that you know what kind of wall on which you’re likely to set up the mount. It can be drywall with wooden studs, it can be concrete, brick, plaster, or even special materials like marble or others.

Most tv wall mount supply up to fifteen degrees of downward or upward tilt for premium viewing angle and provide an open up architecture for extra ventilation and wiring entry.
