Tips for Buying a Flat Panel TV Mount

One of the treats of a flat-panel television’s light weight and thin depth is the ease of installing it directly on a wall in your home. Even as all flat-panel TVs are equipped with pedestals allowing them to be placed on a TV stand, wall-mounting a TV lets you save space and improves a room’s aesthetics. There are currently various types of wall mounts on the market, so there are a few things you should to know before you take your pick.

Picking the Right Mount for Your TV

To select the right mount, first decide the kind of movement you want to have, or if you prefer to mount the TV in a permanent position. Next, make sure the mount you buy is rated for the weight and size of your TV.

Overwhelmed by the Complexity of Experts? This May Help

>> Fixed

This type of mount keeps the TV snug against the wall, making for a very sleek, custom look. Needless to say, a fixed TV wall mount does not allow for any position adjustment. It is best for installations where you have absolute control over the lighting so that glare on the TV screen is avoided; and for rooms where people tend to view the TV from the exact same position, preferably at the center fronting the TV. Also, these are the least pricey TV mounts.

>> Tilting

Tilting mounts allow angling your TV vertically, while maintaining its place on the wall. They do not permit horizontal movements however. A tilting wall mount is advised for installations where a TV is positioned higher than usual, such as above a fireplace, allowing you to angle the screen down. Tilt adjustment also affords you some control over the glare coming from room lights or windows.

>> Full-Motion or Articulating

Full motion TV mounts (also termed articulating mounts) allow the greatest range of movement for your flat panel TV. An articulated swingarm lets you move the TV towards practically any direction. In short, full-motion mounts make sure that your TV is at the best viewing angle at all times.

Durability

Aluminum, plastic and steel are all standard materials used by mount manufacturers. Common sense will tell us that steel will like be the best for bigger TVs, but do feel assured that whatever materials were used, as long as you have a mount UL-rated for your TV, everything should be fine.

Conclusion

Finally, choose a well-reputed TV mounting service to avoid expensive and frustrating problems with your installation. Even though any two or three adults will be able to perform the task on their own, it is always best to let the professionals handle it. There’s a reason we call them specialists, and we should take advantage of their expertise.
