In the last article we looked at table stands for housing your LCD television. Although these can be a cheap option, especially as they are normally supplied along with the unit itself, they don’t give you much flexibility when it comes to TV viewing. You may need to place them on a table, which comes with its own issues.
This blog post will be concentrating on TV brackets which can be used to mount your flat panel display on nearly any wall or ceiling of your house, giving you a lot of choice.
Flat wall brackets
Firstly, we will be looking at flat wall mounts which help you in maximising the space you have available, allowing you to make the best use of this LCD technology. This particular way of mounting your display is generally regarded as the least expensive as it is has a limited amount of flexibility options compared with the other mounts. These TV wall brackets add less than two inches to the total depth of the display unit.
Tilting wall brackets
With these mounts you are able to place your television at a height which is greater than eye level, keeping your expensive LCD flat screen TV out of the way, while making it readily accessible from any place within the chosen room. Many people decide to use this option to install their LCD TV in their bedroom or above the fireplace in their living room. The tilting TV wall mount will add 4-6 inches to the depth of the installed unit.
