Your one-stop-shop for everything home maintenance.
Thinking about mounting your TV? Whether you’ve just gotten a brand new TV or you’ve had yours for years, your flat screen was meant to be mounted, and there’s no time like the present to get started.
There aren’t many things more exciting than unpacking that fresh new flat screen out of the box—except when you realize that it’s up to you to hang it on the wall. Although a drywall-mounted television is a great space saver and looks much sleeker than those boxy and outdated TV stands or cabinets, it does take some basic know-how to mount it safely, securely and properly.
There might be several ways to get that shiny new 4K TV or HDTV up on your wall on your own – but if you want to be absolutely sure that the job is done to your satisfaction, you’ll definitely want to call a professional TV mounting company.
Installing a TV on your own isn’t always as complex as it seems. That being said, there are many things that can go wrong, leaving your wall in shambles, or perhaps worse, your costly TV shattered on the ground.
For those of you old enough to have enjoyed Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, you may remember the classic image of little Lucky sitting with his nose practically glued to the TV screen. Unfortunately, it turns out, this means that Lucky wasn’t viewing his favorite shows in optimal angular resolution (in addition to his natural inability to access the full color spectrum).
Not only does mounting your TV on the wall save space, it also looks great – a wall-mounted TV lends a sleek and minimalistic look to your space that complements any room’s décor.
Have you been thinking about mounting your TV on the wall, but put it off because you weren't really sure what was involved? Even though you know that mounting your TV will save some space, look better, and provide a more comfortable viewing experience, you may be hesitant to tackle this project.
We get asked this question a lot – usually by people concerned about viewing angles and getting the optimal picture out of their television. Unless your screen is picking up some pretty intense glare, though, we recommend that when deciding how high to mount a TV, you take comfort into account first.
Remember when cell phones were so small they could fit inside any pocket with room to spare? Obviously, the trend has changed as today's smartphones have become mini computers that work best with bigger and bigger screen sizes.
We’re all familiar with the old saying, “What goes up must come down,” but when it comes to mounting a TV to your wall, you want to make sure that your expensive new set doesn’t come down until you want it to.
Sure, if your only goal is to outdo your showboat of a neighbor (who drives around in a convertible in December, anyway?!), then you probably don’t need a TV size guide – though you might need to build a bigger wall to hang your TV on.
So you just brought home a big, beautiful, brand new TV to put on the wall and you can’t wait to watch the latest episode of your favorite show in lovely high definition? Congrats!

There may have been a time when the only factors going into buying a television were size and whether you wanted to spring for color or play the thrifty card and stick with good old black and white. Fortunately, that time is long gone.
