How high should I mount my TV?
The ideal height for TV mounting depends mainly on four factors: the size of the TV, how far away you’ll be, your eye level height, and the viewing angle. As a rule, the center of a 42” TV should be mounted about 56 inches from the floor, a 55” TV around 61 inches, a 65” TV around 65 inches, and a 70” TV around 67 inches. But the exact mounting height will vary depending on your eye level, which will vary depending on the height of your seats, couch, or bed. Per the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, you’ll want the TV to be mounted for a viewing angle of not more than 30 degrees. Most people casually sit between 10 to 15 degrees reclined.
What kind of TV mount should I use?
Full-motion (aka articulating) mounts offer the most versatility. They can extend from the wall, swivel side to side, tilt up and down, and even rotate. However, if you want your TV to be flush with the wall, then you should choose a low-profile (aka flat or fixed) or tilting mount.

7 DANGERS OF DIY TV INSTALLATION AND MOUNTING
- A FAILURE TO ACHOR YOUR TV PROPERLY
The one thing that usually springs to mind when we’re talking about TV installation and mounting gone wrong, is having the TV fall off the wall. One of the reasons that this happens is because you have not anchored your television to the wall or that you have improperly anchored the TV to the wall. You should ALWAYS anchor your TV when wall mounting and when you do anchor your television to the wall, you have to be sure to use anchors that are rated for the weight of your television and designed for use with your mounting surface.
- DROPPING YOUR TV
It’s true that televisions are getting lighter these days, but the weight of your TV isn’t the only thing to consider when it comes to being able to properly hold, lift, and install it. The shape and size of your television also play a role in being able to manage your television and this only becomes more challenging when you have to lift and mount that TV to your wall! Even with friends on hand to help you, dropping your TV is a real risk.
- ABOUT THAT POWER CORD…
When you tackle your own TV installation and mounting, it’s not uncommon to underestimate the length of your TV’s power cord. This is dangerous for a few reasons. Firstly, utilizing an extension cord is simply not something you should consider if you have other alternatives. Extension cords can be fire hazards and tripping hazards. Secondly, if you stretch your TV power cord to reach a power source because you underestimated the distance between the plug and your television, that stretching can compromise the integrity of the cord and pose a fire hazard or in the very least, cause your TV to malfunction.
Yes, we know, it sounds dramatic, but electrocution is a real risk when you try TV installation and mounting without experience with electric. Firstly, if you have no idea what you are doing, there’s a chance that you could hit wiring when installing your TV mount. Although this isn’t as likely as improperly wiring your television or improperly running wiring when trying to hide it behind the wall. Our advice is that you never interfere with the electrical system in your home unless you have training as an electrician.
- USING THE WRONG CABLES
Did you know that when you install your television wiring behind the wall of your home, that you have to use cables that are rated for in-wall use? When you utilize any cables for in-wall installation they have to be rated for in-wall use to ensure that they do not pose any hazards to human health and safety.
- PROBLEMS WITH MOUNTING
When you take on TV installation and mounting yourself, it isn’t uncommon to step back when you’ve finished and to realize that you have mounted your television at the wrong level. The instinct for most people is to tug on that mount or push it upward in hopes that you can fix the issue without having to completely reinstall. Don’t. Tugging, pulling, or pushing your wall-mounted television can compromise the integrity of the solid anchor system you have put in place and that can end up with your TV falling off the wall!
- CRIPPLING INJURY
It’s one of the last things that most people think about when considering the dangers of DIY television installation and mounting, but injury is a real risk that can wind up impacting the rest of your life. Whether you injure your back from lifting, twisting, straining, or reaching, or whether you hurt your neck while taking care of construction aspects of the install, you run the risk of an injury that will permanently affect the rest of your life. You may think that this is only a consideration for less physically fit people, but injury can happen to anyone.

What are the advantages of mounting my tv?
There are many reasons why TV wall mounts are becoming more popular for many individuals. Many TVs are now thin and lightweight enough to be easily mounted and come with holes for TV mounting, but installation can require additional effort. Below are a handful of the pros of TV wall mounts.
- Space Saving and Protected from Children and Pets:
One of the most significant benefits of a wall-mounted TV is that because the TV is mounted to the wall, there is no need for a bulky TV stand to take up floor space and the TV is safely out of reach of children and pets. Not only does mounting your TV on the wall with a bracket help protect the screen, but it also makes the room feel more spacious and opens up design possibilities.
- Sleek and Modern Finish:
If you are looking for your space to feel sleek and modern, a TV wall mount is the right choice for you. Not only is it an ideal option for smaller spaces, but it is also a stylistic choice that is both practical and aesthetically appealing.
- Easily Customizable to Create the Ideal Viewing Experience:
Unlike a TV stand, a TV wall mount allows you to customize where your TV is so that it is perfect for your viewing experience and the orientation of the room and furniture. You can choose a specific height for your TV wall mount and allow for additional tilting or positioning for the best viewing experience. If you’re wondering how to choose a TV wall mount, the features of the wall mount and its customizability will be key to consider.
