TV Wall Hanging Options

TV Wall Hanging

What do you need to know about TV wall hanging? Although TVs are getting much thinner, they’re also getting much wider. Many people now choose to mount their large TVs on the wall as this makes a room feel much more comfortable, doesn’t require a large TV cabinet taking up additional floor space and ensures easy viewing from most locations within the room.

When you plan your TV wall hanging, it’s essential to plan everything out in advance. You need to ensure the location is perfect, the final wall finish meets your needs, and you hang the TV securely. Secure hanging is particularly important as the wrong method could send your TV crashing down, and that would be a disaster not just in terms of the money you spent, but it could be dangerous too.


Types Of Brackets

You need to decide the required position of the TV that enables viewing from all angles. You can achieve the required viewing position using a wall bracket. There are three main types of brackets to pick from when installing a TV on the wall. These brackets are fixed, tilting, and full motion. The type of bracket you choose will determine where the TV rests against the wall when not in use and the position or angle you can place it in for viewing.

A fixed bracket means that there is no movement; the TV stays where it is. A tilting bracket means you can tilt the TV up and down. The full-motion bracket means the TV can be tilted but can also move from side to side. Selecting the right bracket before wall mounting your TV is vital; you don’t want to do it all again because you need a different type of movement.


Types Of Walls

Knowing your wall type before you hang your TV is crucial. You need to use wall anchors suitable for the type of wall you have (solid or hollow), and selected for the correct weight of your television.

The type of wall you have will also determine whether you can easily hide the wires or whether you need to run them in a channel or trunking. In a stud wall, the cables can be tucked inside the wall and hidden entirely. Alternatively, you will need to make a channel in a solid wall or use plastic trunking to hide the wires.


The Weight of the TV

Knowing the TV’s weight will help you determine what kind of fixings to use and what size bracket, so it’s an important step. Making sure the TV is secure means you can enjoy it and not worry about any damage that might occur to it or you if it were to fall.
