Need a Wall Mount for Your TV? Discover Which TV Mount is Best for You

by Reyna Thomas

Mounting your TV makes your room feel more organized and neat, and your space will also appear more spacious since more flooring is visible. Your viewing experience is enhanced, too, since it allows you to be in the best and most comfortable position to curl up and enjoy your favorite shows!

TV mounts are available in various configurations to suit a variety of layouts and locations. Given your setup and demands are unique to your home, you’ll want to choose the proper TV mount before putting it up on the wall and realizing it’s not the right fit. If you’re unsure how to choose a TV wall mount, have a look at the many options before making a purchase.

Fixed TV Wall Mount

The fixed or low-profile TV wall mount bracket is the most common TV mounting solution. These fixed brackets are strong and solid, but they don’t move in any direction. The screen angle cannot be adjusted to suit your sitting posture or seating position.

In addition, if you want to add or remove an HDMI cable, depending on your TV design, you may have to first remove the TV from the wall bracket in order to plug it in. However, a fixed wall mount is ideal if you desire a simple wall mount solution that won’t be seen once installed. This wall mount works with all types of TVs, although it may not work with flat-screen televisions with a bulging back.

Tilting TV Wall Mount

A tilting wall mount allows you to control the angle at which your television is tilted, allowing you to get the greatest viewing experience from various angles and positions. As a result, a tilting wall mount bracket makes it easier to change out cables than with a low-profile wall mount.

If you need to position your TV above eye level, tilting wall mounts are a great choice. They’re also just as simple to install as low-profile mounts. If you’re hanging a larger TV, a tilting TV wall mount with an extension is recommended so you can achieve a better tilt.

Full Motion TV Wall Mount

The most versatile of the TV mounts are full motion TV mounts. This type is the way to go if you want complete control over the position of your TV. These mounts allow you to pull the TV out, swivel it left and right, and tilt it down, so you can move your TV and not out of your favorite spot, or to get rid of glare. This is ideal for rooms with more than one viewing spot or larger rooms to make up for the excess space.

Swivel TV Wall Mount

Swivel wall brackets are similar to flat/low profile wall mounts in that they allow you to move your TV horizontally. These wall mounts usually come with a slightly extended arm to aid the range of motion. It’s ideal if you want your TV to be aimed at your kitchen cooking area some of the time but at your lounge area other times. Some swivel wall mounts also have a tilt feature, which allows the TV to move vertically.

Ceiling TV Mount

At times, mounting to your wall isn’t feasible because of the material (like with a brick wall). But don’t worry; with a ceiling mount, you can raise your TV regardless of what your walls are. Most ceiling mounts rotate and tilt in all directions since they are mounted to the ceiling. When living space is restricted, a ceiling mount is also a suitable solution. Just be sure to have a professional install these mounts, as they are pretty complicated installs.
