Where Do I Mount the TV?

BBSo your wonderful Atlanta movers have got all your valuables unpacked in your new home, including the TV. Now it’s just a matter or where to put it! There are plenty of options when it comes to the placement of your TV screen. Here’s a few tips to keep in mind.

Glare. Placing the TV opposite of a window with lots of sunlight is probably a bad idea. Similarly, placing it parallel to a bright lamp will leave you will too much glare. You don’t want to have to turn all the lights off just to watch TV. Keep light- both natural and artificial– in mind when placing your screen.

Comfort. Craning your neck to be able to see the TV screen will get old really quickly. Be sure that the television isn’t too high or too low. Try and keep it as close to eye-level as possible. To try this out, place the TV in a few different spots while you’re watching a show in the evenings, then figure out which placement was most comfortable.

Power. Remember that wherever you put your television, you’re going to have to run power to it. So keeping it close to an outlet cuts down on some of the power cable headaches.

Aesthetics. Do you want the television to be front-and-center in your living room, or would you rather it be more out of the way? Deciding this will help to dictate where you place your TV. If you’re going for a more subtle option, considering mounting it to the wall somewhere inconspicuous, or even putting inside a media console or armoire with doors.
