The centerpiece of any home is the living room, and the focal point of that living room is almost always the television. The question of which wall to put the TV on can be a tricky one, though. Some considerations: Big-screen TVs have gotten so big, that they can totally dominate a room, so make sure you hang yours on a wall in a spot where it won’t feel too imposing.
When it is time to buy a new TV, but you are not sure where to place it. You don’t want to block your views, but you don’t have the wall space to mount it. The solution is to place it on the wall, and that is what we are going to show you. There are three ways to hang your TV on a wall, and each has its advantages and disadvantages: Principally, floor-to-ceiling stand, wall-mounted or ‘In-the-wall’.
In addition, you also need to consider any furniture for your wall. A commonly used one is the floating shelf or wall unit. This creates a sense of space and design and shelves can be decorated to add a sense of design.
How do you actually mount your TV to the wall? You have a couple of options. You can wall mount it directly to the wall using a tv wall bracket that are commonly available. You also have the option of placing it onto another material attached to the wall, such as wooden slats thus giving your TV more depth.
In this post, we look at some of the best trends that showcase the materials that work well as well as the position on the wall. All your assumptions on where your tv should go should be parked for a few minutes. You should also consider your budget, in most of the examples, the TV is almost secondary to the design aspects that sit around the TV…that is the real secret here.

When it comes to TV wall ideas, there are a whole host of questions that are raised. Take a look through some of the most popular questions here.Read the FAQ's
The secret is always in the design…not just the TV but the materials and shapes around the TV screen. It is this premium look that adds character and depth. Take a look at some of the images above and analyze the materials and shapes they use.
Most people tend to have a general idea of where to put their TV, but there is still one question to answer: What wall is the best for the TV? In most cases, it is the one that has the biggest opening to the room, so you can expose the TV as much as possible. However, there are other considerations to take into account, like the room’s focal point and the walls’ exits. It all depends on the configuration of your room, and the purpose you are trying to achieve.
Visually, TVs look best when they’re hovering over a fireplace or a bookcase, or when they’re the centerpiece of a big entertainment system. But how many of us have the space for that? For most of us, a TV is our largest piece of furniture, and the fact that it’s a movable appliance makes it easy to shove into an awkward corner of a room, or to place it down on top of a dresser. But is that really the best way to set it up?
To answer that question, it’s important to know that while the ideal TV placement does have a visual component, it’s also about sound. The best place to put your TV is wherever you’ll hear the audio the clearest.
As televisions get bigger and bigger, there is less and less room to place them. Where do you put a 75-inch television screen that doesn’t have a place on the feature wall in your living room? The answer is simple, yet surprisingly ignored by most people. The best place to put a TV is on a TV stand placed in front of the family room couch!
Hanging your television on the wall has a lot of benefits: it saves space, makes your media cabinet less cluttered, and can make your living room look more sophisticated. But there’s one problem: the higher up you hang the TV, the more distorted the image will look. That’s because the screen is closer to your eyes at a higher distance, so the pixels are bigger and there’s more space between them, making the image blurry. The standard advice for hanging a TV is to put it at eye-level when you’re sitting on the couch, sitting about 9-10 feet away.
Hiding your TV can leave a room looking uncluttered and stylish. It can also free up space to create a cozier area for you to relax in. If you’re thinking of hiding your TV, but are unsure about how to do it, we can help. Here are some ideas for where to put it, and some tips for the design aspects of creating a hidden TV space in your home.

While it’s important to choose the right TV for your space, the feature wall color and decor can be just as important. You don’t have to go for the basic white wall or neutral tones option. The good news is that most gallery wall or accent wall colors can work well as long as there is some contrast, the secret is using ‘bias’ lighting that sits behind your TV. It tricks the eye into believing that the contrast is better. This can make it easier on your eyes and make the picture look much better than it actually is. See…your wall decor actually makes your viewing experience better.
When you are mounting a TV to a wall, you have a lot of factors to consider. Where will the TV’s power cord be located? How far should it be from a window? And, most important, how do you make sure the flat screen TV doesn’t look completely out of place on the wall. In our opinion, a wall mounted tv on its own rarely looks good…unless it is a designer screen that is like a work of art.
The secret is always the surrounding décor and the balance it has in the room. This could mean mounting it on a wall panel to create the illusion of depth, it could mean some plants surrounding it…the choice is yours but the images above should give you a good idea on how to proceed. A common way is to add a shelf, TV wall unit or something to create a sense of balance.
The simple answer is no. Centering a tv unit on a feature wall may be your first thought but there are a number of issues to consider. How far is it from the power outlet? Does it have to hook into any consoles? How far is it from where you will be sitting, what is the position of the couch and coffee table? Have you considered storage space or entertainment units? There are plenty of questions that need answered…the reality is that most people have fewer options given the size of their tv area or living area…in most cases, that place will be obvious.
