Placing a flat screen TV on the wall is a better option than placing it on an entertainment unit or on a furniture. When you place your flat screen television on the wall, you free up the interior space for additional furniture items.
The task of mounting a flat screen TV on wall requires accuracy and precision. Always call a professional for TV installation on wall and if you want to mount your TV all by yourself, always follow the installation instruction subscribed by the manufacture.
Steps involved in TV installation on wall:
Fix bracket on the back of your flat screen
If you are installing the TV by yourself then make sure that you follow the mounting instructions given in the manual. Fix a correct sized bracket on the back of your flat screen. TV brackets come in a size range. Buy the one that fits well with your TV dimensions. Be very careful while fixing the bracket on your TV. Lay the TV on its face (i.e. glass down) on a soft, padded and flat item. Take off the base attached with your television (the support on which your TV stands). (Picture source: www.wikihow.com)
Fix bracket on the wall
Determine the height at which you wish to mount the television. Also figure out the center of the wall so that the TV is mounted at the right height and location on the wall. Now place the mounting bracket onto the wall and mark the points where you must drill holes. Fix the wall bracket with screws and bolts.
Also determine the mounting style you want. There can be a simple mounting bracket and an advanced mounting bracket. In simple mounting mechanism the television stays at one position without the option for adjusting it. Whereas an advanced mounting system gives you the freedom to adjust the television up, down and side-to-side.
Always choose a solid wall for TV mounting. A TV has significant weight which can be quite heavy for the hollow walls to handle. Mounting flat screen on hollow wall may cause the screen to fall right off, leaving you with a broken TV and damaged wall. (Picture source: www.dotnetsourceindia.blogspot.com)
