Fortunately, when we first moved into our new home there was already a spot allocated for mounting the television. In fact, the wall mount device was already mounted onto the wall and the only thing required was to mount the TV set onto it.
It seemed quite a pretty straight forward job from the look of it but as it turned out, and particularly if you have a larger screen, you will definitely need another person on hand to mount the television set.
Should you do it?
Looking at the screen from a slightly higher elevation gives a more cinematic experience especially if your have one of those modern TV sets with crispy clear images on the screen. The TV screen tends to look down on you which makes it a slightly different experience many of us are used to at home.
The other thing to note about mounting your television on the wall is the additional space that’s created. This extra space allows you to place other devices like Cable TV sets or Playstations.
There’s also some points you should consider about mounting a TV set on the wall.
Firstly, and as mentioned above, depending on the size of your TV set you will need someone else to help you mount it. It can be quite a challenging task.
Secondly, while it seems a DIY kind of job, you should know that it will require some tools, nuts and bolts. Many of the TV Wall Mounts come with instructions so if you can follow them and have the necessary tools, you should have no problems.
Following from above, you’ll need to make sure you have a wall strong enough to hold the TV Mount and the TV itself. Some TV’s might look thin and light but that’s not always the case.
Finally, when you’re installing the the television on the wall make sure your cables are accessible. While the chords were accessible it looked very messy so you’ll need to ensure not only are the cables accessible you should have them neatly placed without tangling it up with other cables.
