Over 95% of homes in the UK have a television, which comes out to be about 27 million in total. Whether you watch television to relax after a long day of work or just on the weekends for an occasional movie, it is still one of the focal points of whatever room you are in. This is mostly because televisions continue to become bigger, clearer and more dynamic with their technology.
Perhaps your television is sitting on an old coffee table from your last flat or taking up valuable room in the corner and you don’t know that you can wall mount it to free up space. Maybe you’ve seen wall mounts but don’t know how easy they are to set up and haven’t had the time to upgrade your room until now.
Wall mounting proves helpful in many ways and can enhance your living space for years to come. Here are some of the benefits you will see if you decide to wall mount your television:
Benefit #1: Saves You Space
By mounting your TV to the wall, space will be freed up from the clutter that a cabinet or other piece of furniture makes. Open floor spaces make the room look larger, brighter, and less cluttered. This extra space especially feels great if you have to work from home and afford yourself a little extra breathing room at times. In addition, reducing clutter helps keep pests and other creepy crawlies out of your smaller spaces as well.
Benefit #2: Mounting Your TV Is Safer
If you have small children or pets at home, the fear of a TV tipping on them is not an outlandish or irrational feeling. Many children get hurt every year from televisions falling on them: children are curious and TVs are big, bright and have fun colors and noises coming out of them.
By wall mounting your television, you can avert any accidents a heavy television falling could cause. Your child will still be able to enjoy the benefits of watching television and you, as a caring parent, can breathe a little easier.
If you do not have children but you are a little clumsy, wall mounting can help with that as well. Having to buy brand new televisions because you bumped it off of its stand does not sound like a fun weekend activity. Wall mounting is a clumsy person’s best friend. And if you don’t want to drill holes in the wall, a cantilever TV stand that allows your TV to “float” above a credenza is a great choice as well.
Benefit #3: Better Viewing Experience
Has this happened to you: you get off of work, you sit down to watch your favorite show with a glass of wine and you can’t see the show because the sun is glaring on the screen? Most TVs don’t have tilt or swivel adjustment built into the stand.
With a TV mount, you get options for how you want your TV to move around and be positioned in the room. From tilting to full-motion mounts, you can adjust the angle of your TV whenever and however you want for the best viewing experience possible. Being able to customise your views when you want to sit on your favorite chair or the couch is nice as well; you aren’t beholden to one spot in the room like you would be with an unmounted TV.
Benefit #4: Better For Your Health
TV mounts not only help you watch your television at more comfortable angles, but mounts also help reduce eye strain, since you are placing them in a more natural line of view. Adjusting your TV will provide you with the best viewing distance and an appropriate height that will help your body position as well, giving you the comfort you deserve.
TV mounts are not only a great idea if you have playful children or curious pets, but also if you might be on the clumsy side. They free up space and make your room look bigger and brighter, but they can give you a great viewing experience as well.
