How To Choose The Best TV Mount

You want your TV to look great and save space. First, you will need a TV Wall Mount. This article will explain the differences between TV wall mounts and help you choose the best one for your project we mount your tvs.

1. Flat TV Wall Mounts These mounts can be very simple, and the main advantage is that the TV is only 2″ from the wall. They don’t tilt and allow the television to remain parallel to the wall. Because the TV is so close to the wall, it can be difficult to plug in new cables. If this happens, you will need to take the TV off the wall and plug in the cables. Then mount the TV back up. Flat TV Wall mounts can be purchased for $25-$50 depending on the size and type of your TV. These universal mounts can be customized to fit different TV sizes. They are available in sizes from 32in to 42in, 37in up to 55in and 37in up to 60in.

2. Mounts for tilting TV Walls Tilting mounts can adjust 12-15 degrees in either direction, depending on whether there is a glare from the TV or if you need to insert new cables. Tilting mounts are more difficult to install and can be extended 3-4 inches from the wall. Tilting wall mountings are available for televisions of sizes 32-42″, 37-55″, or 60″ and cost $30-$70, depending on their size.

3. Mounts for Articulating and Swivel TV Wall Mounts. These mounts are adjustable to tilt, turn left or right, tilt up or down 12-15 degrees and extend 20-25″. For corner installations or when your television is positioned to the right or left, swivel TV mounts are ideal. Mounts with articulating TVs are very heavy and can cause damage to the wall. This is why it is important to secure them on the wall. It is more difficult to install articulating TV wall mountings and requires more adjustments. Professional installers are recommended. For TVs with sizes 32″-42″, 37”-55″, or 37”-60″, articulating mounts can be purchased for $80-$200. Articulating Mounts are made with longer cables and can be swiveled up to 180 degrees.
