There are few things you must consider while mounting your new TV. But following this guide, you can’t go wrong, and your comfort is guaranteed. So let’s get straight to the point.
Where is the best place to mount tour TV?
- It isn’t above the fireplace for sure
Why mounting your TV above the fireplace is not a good idea? Have you examined the idea of placing it above your fireplace? It seems reasonable at first, but this is one of the worst choices you could make. First, the heat of the fireplace can reduce the lifespan of the TV. If it damages it, you lose the warranty service. And second, staring in the direction of the fireplace will dry your eyes and make the experience close to unbearable.
- Pain in the neck
Some interior designers can tell you that positioning your TV over the fireplace, or somewhere else high is a good idea. DON’T listen to them. Remember that mounting your flat screen more than 15 degrees below or above your line of sight will surely mess with the picture quality. At the same time, mounting your TV high will put unnecessary strain on your neck.
Suggestion: the centre of the screen should be at eye level from where you are going to be sitting, even slightly below.
- First Configuration
When you take your new TV at home, you must change its settings because the store ones are configured for very bright spaces. There are a lot of settings new models of TVs have. So take a look at the diverse configurations and see if there is “home theatre”, “cinema” mode, or something along these lines.
Step by step guide on how to mount your TV
When you’re done with all the things that precede the actual job, choose the right sport and let’s get down to it.
- Place the bracket on the wall
Avoid any wiring when you place the bracket. Using the cutouts, mount your framework. Mark the position where you’ll fix your screen.
- Bolt attachment
Pre-drill the first hole and hold the TV bracket. Then affix the first coach bolt. Don’t tighten the bolt yet because you have to put the remaining ones.
- Affix the other bolts
After the first bolt is in place, it’s time to tighten the other ones. Pre-drill the other marked out holes and screw in the bolts, but make sure they are well-levelled. If they are, then you can tighten all the bolts.
- Bolt for the TV
You must find the right bolt for your TV. Tighten it well using a star washer. If you meet any difficulty with this or any other odd jobs, you always have the option to contact our TV wall mounting experts in Melbourne.
- Attach the bracket hooks
Secure the bracket hooks at the back of your TV using the bolts you’ve selected and star washers.
- Plugin your TV
Plug in the power cords before mounting your TV because then you’ll have no place where to do it. After putting it on the wall, you must tighten the screws at the bottom of the bracket, and that is all. Now, you can watch your TV programs with pleasure.
