When you buy a new TV, it is important to get it installed in your home as soon as possible. This not only allows you to start enjoying it right away; it also protects it from accidental damage whilst left sitting in a corner.
TV wall brackets are the preferred installation option in most homes these days. If you want to mount your TV on the wall, however, there are a few things you must do before you start.
1. Find the right TV bracket. You need to find a bracket that is compatible with the make and model of your TV, and that also supports the size and weight of the TV. The weight-holding capacity is especially important, as you don’t want your TV dropping from the bracket and breaking (or injuring someone!).
2. Clear some wall space. Choose the wall you want to install your TV bracket on, and ensure that it is clean, flat and even. You might need to take down picture frames or other decorative features to make room for the TV. If you don’t have enough wall space available, you might want to consider using cantilever or ceiling TV brackets.
3. Who will install the bracket? If you have a little DIY knowledge and the right tools, you can install the bracket yourself. If you aren’t confident, however, it’s always best to call in a professional.
