How to Set Up Your Living Room for Optimal TV Viewing

Deciding where to put your TV in the living room is an important decision. After all, it will affect your viewing pleasure whether you are watching movies, TV, sports, or playing games. Two factors that determine the best place to install your TV are the size of the television and the TV viewing distance between the TV and the sofa.

The smaller the TV, the closer you will want to be, so you do not have to strain your eyes. Conversely, the larger the TV, the further back the better, so you are not too close to the TV.

TV Stand or Wall Mount?

Once you determine the spacing between the TV and furniture, then you need to decide if you want to put the TV on a TV stand or mount it on the wall. Wall mounting does require installing the appropriate wall mount kit and securing it to the wall by attaching the wall mount into the studs.

How High Is Too High?

Make sure you don’t install the TV too high on a stand or the wall, so you are straining your neck looking up when watching TV. If you must place it above a fireplace or higher up on the wall, make sure you can swivel the TV to a downward viewing angle.

Other Considerations

Once you know if you are using a TV stand or wall mounting your TV, remember to take the time to hide all those unsightly cords. There are cord covers and organizers to keep them neat, tidy, and hidden away. Most importantly, make sure you have a TV remote control holder within easy reach of the sofa or your recliner.
