One of the bonuses of a flat-panel television’s light weight and thin depth is the ease of mounting it directly on a wall in your home. Even as all flat-panel TVs are equipped with pedestals allowing them to be placed on a TV stand, wall-mounting a TV lets you save space and improves a room’s aesthetics. There are quite a number of wall mounts on the market nowadays, so there are some things you have to know before you take a choice.
Choosing the Right Mount for Your TV
To decide on the right mount, you have to decide what level of movement you need your TV to have, or if you’d rather mount it in a permanent spot. Next, make sure you purchase a mount that matches the size and weight of your TV.
Fixed against Motion Mount
This mount attaches the TV tight against the wall, giving a very clean, sleek and custom look. Needless to say, a fixed TV wall mount does not allow for any position adjustment. It is, however, best for installations where you have complete control with the lighting, to avoid glare on the screen; and for parts of the home where people will always be watching the TV from a single position, ideally at the center fronting the TV. Also, these are the least pricey TV mounts.
Tilting mounts allow angling your TV vertically, while maintaining its place on the wall. They do not permit horizontal movements however. A tilting wall mount is preferable for installations in which a TV is mounted higher than typical, such as over a fireplace, allowing you to adjust the display to face down. Tilt adjustment also gives you some control over the glare that comes from windows or room lights.
>> Full-Motion or Articulating
Full motion TV mounts (also referred to as articulating mounts) allow the greatest range of movement for your flat panel TV. An articulated swingarm gives you total freedom as far as positioning your TV is concerned. In short, full-motion mounts make sure that your TV is at the best viewing angle at all times.
Mount manufacturers use plastic, aluminum and steel as standard building materials. Common sense will tell us that steel will like be the best for bigger TVs, but do feel assured that whatever materials were used, as long as you have a mount UL-rated for your TV, everything should be fine.
Lastly, select a reliable TV mounting service to keep expensive and frustrating problems away. Even though any two or three adults will be able to perform the task on their own, it is always best to let the professionals handle it. There’s a reason they’re called experts, and you should take advantage of that.
