Now, you have TVs in sleek designs which are mounted on the wall. This means that you now require a how-to guide to mount the TV in your home. This also implies that when you have taken things in your own hands, you are bound to make a few mistakes. We have compiled some common mistakes that people make while mounting the TV.
The most important thing to decide on is the location where you're going to mount the TV. You have to take factors like sun exposure, your viewing angle, etc in consideration before choosing the perfect wall for your brand new TV. Also, don't mount the TV too high on the wall. You don't have to strain your neck while watching your favorite show.
Load Bearing Walls
Okay, so, mounting the TV is all about science. We are not kidding! While it may look like all that you have to do is to drill a hole in the wall, use the nail, and hang the TV on it. However, your wall may not be strong enough to support the weight of the TV - yes, regardless of how sleek they are, they have a considerable amount of weight. So, where does this leave you? First, you can call a professional to get this thing up on the wall so that you can have some relaxing time. However, if you are one of the people who love to risk it all, you can mount the TV on the wall on your own. You will have to use a wall stud to provide external support to the wall to hang the TV. But, if anything goes wrong, your TV can come crashing down.
You need a screwdriver, a drill, a wall stud, and other relevant supplies to mount the TV on the wall. Most people start work with literally no supplies. If you are someone who is not good with the tools and don't have a tool kit at your home, we'd recommend you go buy the essential tools before you start the mounting work. This kind of work requires precision and even a small mistake can cost you thousands of dollars - when you see your new TV bearing the brunt. So, it is better to be prepared than being sorry.
The Right Mount
When you mount the TV on the wall, you don't just paste it to the wall. The back of the TV has cable portals and other ports that you use regularly. It is essential for you to set the angle of the TV right so that you have access to all the ports.
Installing a TV is not difficult. However, since the gadget is fragile, we'd recommend you to call a professional to get the installation sorted out.
