Did you find the perfect TV on Cyber Monday, and now you’re wondering where to put it? We’ve got you covered! Check out these tips from We Mount Tvs to ensure you find the perfect way to mount your television.

Take Distance & Height into Consideration

The most ideal distance between your couch and your television is approximately 7-9 feet. You don’t want to sit too close to your television, and you certainly don’t want it to be too far away. If you get too far away from your TV, you lose resolution and detail. Sitting closer to your television allows you to improve your field of view and really immerse yourself in the experience, especially if you have a curved TV. The larger your television, the more immersive your experience will be.

Where you hang your television along the wall depends on your personal viewing preferences. You do not want to strain your neck by hanging your TV too high nor too low.

Don’t Throw Off the Fung Shui!

Most televisions have slightly reflective screens, so you must pay attention to where sources of light are located in your room. Windows, lamps, and mirrors can throw off your image quality. Once you’ve decided where in the room you want to hang your television, you can determine whether you need a regular wall mount or a swivel mount. Unless your seating area sits directly in front of your screen, you will most likely want to mount your television in a way that allows your to adjust its angle.

After countless hours of painting and moving furniture, the last thing you want to do is throw off the fung shui of your room by misplacing an appliance. It can be difficult find the right place for your bulky, clunky new addition to your space (above the fireplace, maybe?). Check out these tips to make sure your  TV blends into your decor.
