Nowadays, televisions come in a range of options, one seemingly more amazing and advanced than the next. In fact, there are so many innovations now when it comes to television technology that we don’t even know what’s next. But if you have already found the TV that’s perfect for your needs, the next big question is: how do you install it? Do you use a TV stand or table, or do you mount it on the wall? Whilst there may be some benefits to making use of a stand or table, there are even more benefits to wall-mounting your TV. Here’s what you need to know about the real benefits of a wall-mounted TV.
It’s only natural
The fact of the matter is that if you have a flat-screen television, the manufacturers actually designed it to be wall-mounted in the first place. The flat screen TV was designed in such a way for it to be mounted on the wall – hence the bolts at the back which can be attached to a flat surface, such as a wall. Whether you have a Plasma, LED, or LCD TV, all these were designed and developed to be wall-mounted. It’s only natural.
You have more space
Today, space is more precious than ever. We have smaller and tinier homes and less space in which to move around. So, if you can save some extra space, why not? Hanging your television on the wall is the perfect solution in order for you to save some additional space. You have a larger space to work with, and you don’t have to be encumbered by a TV when walking or moving around.
Eliminate eye and neck strain
Yet another real benefit of mounting your television on the wall is related to your overall health. With a wall-mounted television, you don’t have to strain your neck or eyes whilst watching your favourite shows. Since the TV is placed on the wall, you have a better viewing angle, especially if you choose a TV wall mount that can be angled or tilted according to where you are in the room.
One other real benefit of mounting your TV on the wall is this: it’s not as difficult as you may presume. In fact, you can mount your TV on the wall in less than an hour with the help of just one person. Just make sure that the wall mount you choose comes with detailed instructions on setting up your television, as well as the proper hardware you need.
So, what are you waiting for? Mounting your television on the wall is definitely your better alternative. You can even make it a kind of ‘design’ feature of your home by placing décor around your TV such as picture frames, bookcases, shelves, and more.
