Tips On Where To Hang Your Flat Screen

When we install flat screens the number one question customers have is “Where is the best place to hang my TV”? There are many factors ins a room when considering the best location or which wall to put the TV up. Check out these tips below if you are having the same issue when deciding.

Focal Point

When deciding where to put your TV up also decide what other objects you will put on the wall in that same room. Is it pictures? mirrors? shelves? If you want guests who will be coming over to focus on a nice piece of art in that room then you may nt want to buy an overpowering large 75″ HDTV but rather a smaller 42″ if you still want to entertain guests. The reason being is if the TV is on it will take away from the fine art or mirror but may not necessarily. IT is just something to think about and sometimes is you are having a tough time deciding between a TV or artwork s the focus you may not want to put the conflicting one up instead of having them compete.

Take Distance & Height into Consideration

Anther question we get is how high the TV should be in the room. We always use the furniture in the room to decide how high the TV will be while the customer is sitting so the viewing can be comfortable. The standard is 15 degrees viewing while looking at the flat screen from a relaxed sitting position while the distance between your couch and your television is usually approximately 7-9 feet. You don’t want to sit too close to your television, and you certainly don’t want it to be too far away. If you get too far away from your TV, you lose resolution and detail. Sitting closer to your television allows you to improve your field of view and really immerse yourself in the experience. The larger your television, the more immersive your experience will be.

The last thing you want to do is strain your neck by hanging your TV too high nor too low.

Lighting and Lights

Most televisions have slightly reflective screens, so you must pay attention to where sources of light are located in your room. Windows, lamps, and mirrors can throw off your image quality. Curved TV’s were designed to help solve this reflective issue slightly but is not 100% resistance to reflection. Anther way to help deflect light from a flat screen is to buy a tilting bracket or full motion so you can move it forward and left and right to assist. Unless your seating area sits directly in front of your screen, you will most likely want to mount your television in a way that allows your to adjust its angle.
