Why it's the Ideal Size

Puls TV Mounting

Most flat screen TVs manufactured in the past few years were meant to be mounted. If you have an older television set, you should first check to see if your TV is compatible with a wall mount. If it isn’t, perhaps consider upgrading your television. If you’re unsure of what size of a wall mount to use for mounting your TV, a 55 inch TV wall mount is a safe bet for a number reasons.

For starters, it’s versatile. It’s a relatively sturdy, durable size that can easily adjusted, and some models can expand in size from 26 inches to up to as large as 84 inches. Thus, it can be used with a wide variety of TV sizes, no matter the size, brand or style of flat screen you might have.

Don’t have a TV mount at the moment? Not a problem - simply select which kind of mount you’d like (swivel or tilted) and we’ll bring the suitable sized mount for your TV to you as part of your Puls TV mounting appointment.

What Can You Do with a 55 inch TV Wall Mount?

TV Mounting with Puls

Entertaining guests can be satisfying, especially for a movie night in or watching the game with friends. If you plan on hosting company, know that a 55 inch wall mount can help take that experience to the next level to create an enhanced visual display with your mounted flat screen TV, no matter if you’ve got a smaller or larger TV.

Starting at the most basic of 55 inch wall mounts, there's the flat mount, also known as the standard TV mount. This is one of the least expensive options, as a flat mount provides the less overall flexibility. You cannot angle or tilt your television on a flat mount, but if this is your first time mounting your TV, a basic wall mount may be right up your alley.

Another TV mounting option is the tilt or swivel mount. These mounts let you change the vertical angle of your television screen. You can also adjust for perfect comfort, and you can even lie on the floor while viewing the TV as well.

Finally, full motion mounts happen to be the cream of the crop of TV mounts. They have a fold-able arm between the wall and the TV, allowing you to adjust your television any way you'd like. At the end of the day, they’re all fantastic options, and can usually be adjustable to match the specific size of your TV.
