These days the big, hulking, boxy TVs of the past are gone. The year is 2020 and they’ve been replaced by sleek and slender 60, 70, 80-inch flat screens that commonly adorn the walls of homeowners all over America.
That said, many people are still apprehensive when it comes to mounting their TVs on their wall. Why? Some believe it’s too much work or that it’s too dangerous, but the job can be done easily when done the right way, and there are numerous benefits to doing so!
Is it Safe to Wall Mount a TV?
One thing to keep in mind is that although they can be placed on a stand, a desk, or in an entertainment center, flat screen TVs were originally designed to be mounted on walls. In fact, it’s safer to mount one’s television on a wall than to have it resting on furniture.
Mounted TVs don’t run the risk of being knocked over by small children or pets, or even worse, being knocked over and falling on top of a child or pet. Most, if not all TV wall mounts these days are built to hold up to 125 lbs.; taking into consideration that most newer TVs weigh only 40-60 lbs., you’re in good hands.
A Trendy and Efficient Design Choice
Not only do you make your home or office safer by mounting your television, you also make it look better! The minimalist look is in, and the trendiest interior designs are those with clean, uncluttered open spaces. Mounting your TV is a great way to achieve that look. Not only will your living room, bedroom, or office look nicer, but it will also help you save space and enjoy a cleaner environment.
Placing your TV in an entertainment center usually turns your cords into a jumbled, tangled mess that not only become an eye sore, but can also cause injury. Mounting TVs makes managing or hiding those pesky cords much easier. Many mounts also come with the option to lower, raise, or swivel your TV to the location and angle that best suits you for optimal viewing.
Think About It
Mounting your flat screen TV is a great choice for any home. Not only does it make your home safer, preventing damage to expensive devices, but also gives your home a neater, more minimal interior design aesthetic that is sure to impress friends and family.
