When it comes to positioning your television, there are two main options to choose from: stand mounting and wall mounting. Stand mounting involves standing your TV on a flat surface such as a countertop, TV stand or shelf whilst wall mounting involves fixing your television to a wall.

Wall mounting your TV is becoming the most common method, with most people preferring a wall-mounted TV. But is wall mounting your television really the way forward? Here are five reasons why we think you should hire a TV mounting professional to mount your television to a wall.

Make the most of your space

The most common reason for mounting a TV to a wall is to create more space in your home. Free-standing televisions take up space. Whether it’s a TV stand, your countertop or a table, your freestanding television will need somewhere to stand.

When you choose to mount your TV to a wall, you’re freeing up valuable space that can be used for other purposes. This is especially useful in a small room or home.

No limits on screen size

In the past, your screen size was limited by the space that you had. You could only have a television that fits onto your TV stand and within your available space. Having a big TV often meant that you’d need to compromise on other furniture to create enough space for your TV.

Wall mounting your television means that you can choose any size TV, as long as your wall has enough space for it to be mounted. This means that you can opt for a bigger screen size without having to worry about whether you’ve got enough space.

Improve safety

Everyone knows that children love to explore, and this includes investigating your TV. If your television is freestanding and not secured to your furniture, it’s easy for an inquisitive toddler to pull the TV onto themselves – and the same goes for your pets!

Mounting your TV to the wall means that it is secured away from your children and pets, reducing their chances of injury. It’ll also help to prevent your television from being broken by those same curious children, so it’s good news all around.

Choose the perfect position

There’s nothing worse than sitting down to watch TV after a long day to find that the angle isn’t quite right and you see the screen properly. It might even be that the sun is shining through a window and you’ve got a glare.

When you mount your TV to the wall, you can choose exactly how high you want your TV, giving you that perfect viewing position. You can even opt for a full-motion mount which will allow you to quickly and easily reposition your television as often as you like. This allows you to get the perfect angle, no matter which seat you choose.  

Increase aesthetics

We all long for a gorgeous home, but TV stands can sometimes get in the way of achieving your chosen style. Mounting your television to the wall can be more aesthetically pleasing, allowing you to position your TV wherever it looks best. It will also give you a more minimalistic look to your home, getting rid of that cluttered feeling.  

To sum up

Whether you’re looking to improve the aesthetics of your home or keep your inquisitive children safe, mounting your TV to a wall could be right for your home. The best way to do this is to hire a TV mounting profession – they are the experts after all.
