Tips for mounting a flat screen television

If you’re installing a home cinema system, determining ‘which TV wall mount do i need’ and establishing the right height for your flat screen television is important. However, finding the perfect position isn’t always easy. Read on for some important points before putting your new TV in place.

TV size

The size of your TV is a key factor. Remember, you are judging from the floor to the centre of the screen. Your TV size represents the diagonal viewing area. As a result, you must use a measuring tape to work out just how far up and over the exact centre of your screen is to make sure your Tv wall mount is located correctly.

Viewing distance

The optimum viewing distance is based on TV size and represents the ideal distance from your screen you should be seated to watch your favourite films and shows. Divide the size of your TV by 0.55 to calculate the perfect distance. For instance, if you have a 44-inch screen, your TV wall mount should sit 100 inches away from where you sit.

Viewing angle and eye level for your TV wall mount

Finally, always calculate your eye level from a seated position. Your viewing angle should never be more than 30 degrees. In a relaxed viewing position, most people sit reclined by between 10 and 15 degrees, but just make sure it is right for you.
