Wall Mounting Television in Tunbridge Wells

We can mount any size television screen on your wall.  There are several options for mounting your TV as well as for the cabling.

Flat mount: the TV is mounted flat to the wall and is often the best option, especially if your wall is made from plasterboard or perhaps not as solid as it used to be.

Tilt mount: the TV is mounted flat to the wall but has the option to tilt down at a slight angle to allow for better viewing if the TV is mounted high. This is often a good option if your wall is made from plasterboard or not as solid as it used to be.

Full motion or articulated arm mount: enables the TV to be moved for the best possible viewing position, but the weight of the TV and the state of the wall must be considered before taking this option.

Considering where to mount?

Often people who mount their TV themselves place them too high. Keep in mind, for the perfect viewing height when sitting on your sofa, the eye line needs to be at the centre of the TV picture. However, it’s not always possible to get the perfect position, so if you’re mounting above a fireplace consider a tilt or full motion mount.

Cable concealing plan?

The sleek look of a mounted TV can easily be ruined by a mess of cables stretching up the wall. Even if you don’t plug any devices into your television, you’ll still need to contend with the power and aerial cable trailing down your wall to the wall sockets. 

There are a few solutions. You can have your cables installed inside the wall: a channel is chased out, the cables are secured inside it, then the channel is filled with plaster, which can then be smoothed and painted. Another option is to have them hidden in surface mount trunking, which can then be painted to match your decor.

An electrician may be required to install power sockets behind your TV. Keep in mind where the TV mount will go when planning power sockets.

Where to put your components?

You will also need to consider where to put your Satellite box, DVD player and games console. These can be housed out of sight in a cabinet or a cupboard with an IR blaster to control them remotely. Smaller devices such as SkyQ and AppleTV can be mount behind the TV on specialist mounts, keeping them hidden and negating the need for an AV cabinet.
