Choosing a Custom TV Mounting for your flat screen is not as simple as just matching the size and getting the right tools. Making the right decision about which TV mount you use is abo
ut how you are actually going to use your flat screen TV and which room in your home the and TV mount will be placed. Usability, Size, weight, installation difficulty, and price all play factors in choosing the best flat screen TV mount.
Here are the four main types of flat screen TV mounts:
DIY Mount - If you are handy with power tools and enjoy creating things yourself, a do-it-yourself project could be the best idea for you. Feel a sense of accomplishment, impress your friends, and most of all save money by making your TV mount yourself. There are many websites and videos dedicated to this topic. On the downside expect that your creation won't be so adjustable as commercially manufactured options. Example- A simple wall mount made from sheet metal that holds your HD TV in a stable position on the wall.
Fixed TV Mount - These are also called flat or low-profile TV mounts. If you don't plan to move the TV once it is in place and want an easy-install solution, this budget-minded TV mount could be the best choice for you. Usually this is for your living room and where the TV is 3 to 4 feet from the floor (standard position). Make sure that if you are using a fixed wall mount for your flat screen TV that you have space in the back to insert and remove cables. Example- An LED TV in your living room or bar that is always in the same place and position for viewers. If your TV is 3 to 4 feet from the floor (standard position) you can use the fixed TV mount.
Tilting TV Mount - If you are interested to adjust (or tilt) your HD TV to improve the vertical viewing angle you might want to consider choosing a tilting mount. These are also quite easy to install and can give you more space to insert and remove cables. So if you’re TV is 4 to 5 feet from the ground the optimal viewing experience will be achieved by tilting the TV downward. On the downside tilting wall mounts are considerably more expensive than fixed mounts. Example- an HD TV in your office that is tilted down for easier viewing while your customers are sitting in the lobby area.
