You cannot make a random purchase with regard to TV mounts, as you can go wrong by size, proportion, weight or even length. This might lead to severely jeopardizing the aesthetics of your living room. Hence, while making an online purchase always keep a note of the product details to check whether it fits your TV specifics. A couple of things to note before making your purchase of your wall mount are as follows
- Which place to pick to place your TV mount?
Location is the key when it comes to proper placement of your TV mount. An improper decision in placement can lead your living room to look disproportionate. The wall you want to mount your TV on also should be taken into consideration, so make sure you measure the wall proportions as well. If your TV is considerably big, then a larger wall space and a bigger wall mount have to be considered. If you skip these steps, then whilst installation you might realize you’ve purchased the wrong wall mount.
- What are your TV proportions (weight and size)?
This might seem irrelevant but it makes a difference in the type of mount you are purchasing as they have specifics with respect to weights and size. Hence, make a note of your TV size and weight prior proceeding to purchase itself. Make note that different brands vary in weight and size capacity.
- What type of TV mount should you pick?
A fixed mount will offer you no chance of position adjustment but it will be attached close to your wall providing a good finish look. Nevertheless, note that the common ‘glare’ issue accompanies fixed mounts if you cannot manage the lighting of your room.
Further, if you have an intention of viewing your TV from more than one place then choosing a flexible mount would be advisable. You can either select tilting or full motion mount. A tilting mount allows you to vertically modify your TV up to around while a full motion mount allows you to manoeuvre your TV horizontally as well. Although, a flexible mount can only be put to use if you possess a spacious room with a joint kitchen.
Hence, picking your way through the right TV wall mounts can be a tedious task. But if you follow the above-mentioned steps, you are good to make the right purchase.
