It is often the little things that make a home entertainment experience truly satisfying and one of these seemingly small details is the position of your television. Conventional TV units or cabinets work well in theory, but can often have your TV sitting in a position that is slightly too low or skewed in one way or another. This can leave you straining your neck or eyes to get a good view and this has a number of negative effects with regard to your comfort and health.
Additionally, TV units take up quite a bit of space in a standard living room and are not always child-safe. They have sharp corners that could easily injure an unwary toddler, which could also knock over your TV causing further injury or damage. TV wall mounting is a great solution for these potential issues. TV wall mounting allows you to position your TV perfectly, giving you a great view from the couch. It also allows you to maximise the use of your living space and creates a sleek, understated appearance that goes well with many modern homes.
Improve your viewing experience with a wall mounted TV
Many people don’t realise the strain placed on their neck, shoulders and eyes when their TV is not positioned correctly. The combined strain of many hours spent craning your neck or focusing your gaze can lead to considerable discomfort and, in some people, longer term effects. It is for this reason that a well-positioned TV is paramount and wall mounting your television will ensure just that. With a TV wall-mounting expert, you can have your TV positioned at the perfect height, to ensure that you can watch it from your couch, without any difficulty or strain. With a professionally wall mounted TV, you will probably find that your home entertainment experience has been enhanced to a surprising extent.
Common mistakes in TV wall mounting
As with any installation process, there are several things of which you should be aware when having your TV wall mounted. The entire purpose of wall mounting your television is to improve the safety, comfort and practicality of your home entertainment system and a failure to have your wall mount installed correctly will jeopardise all of these. Because of this, it is wise to contact a TV installation expert and ask about their wall mounting services; doing so can help you avoid some of the issues listed below.
Poorly levelled mounting
A poorly levelled wall mount will cause you no end of frustration. Even if you don’t realise it at first, a poorly levelled wall mount will soon make itself abundantly obvious and once you have seen it, it cannot be unseen. Not only can this be greatly annoying, it can cause your eyes or neck considerable discomfort and ultimately ruin the symmetry of your living space. Experienced wall mounting professionals will have all the tools and expertise necessary to ensure that this does not happen.
One of the appeals of wall mounting is child safety, however a poorly mounted television can in fact achieve the opposite. Homeowners who try and mount their TV themselves often face the issue of unstable mounts. Television wall mounts are rated to different weight and if you are mounting a large television with an undersized mount, your run the risk of having your TV break away from the mount and fall off the wall altogether.
Hidden electrical fittings or studs in your wall
A potential issue with drilling into your wall is studs and electrical fittings. If you drill into these, you can cause extensive damage to your home’s electrical system and, in extreme cases, risk electrocution. To avoid this, you need the right tools, such as a stud finder, which is why it is wise to hire an experienced professional to do the job for you.
