A telly wall mount is what you need when putting up your new flat screen TV. It gives your room that sleek and modern look. Plus it gives you a wider viewing angle.

These are 5 reasons to look into purchasing a telly wall mount:

  1. The area where you plan to place the mount; you need to consider two things. First is the level of your eyesight. Second is the space for external speakers. You must give enough space for speakers.

  2. You need to follow the manufacturer’s requirements for wall mounting the brackets and support. The requirements are implemented by VESA or the Video Electronics Standards Association guide. The standards involve the proper sizes of the holes in the mount. In line with this, it is important that you get a mount that can handle a heavy TV.

  3. Figure out the type of wall mount you want to install. The three types to choose from are: (a) swivel and tilt. You move the mount up or down. You can also move it from right to left. These are perfect for corner destinations; (b) tilting type. You can move this mount from 5 to 15 degrees up or down; and (c) low profile type. Its main advantage is that it takes up little space between the wall and the TV. It is the best looking mount.

  4. Pick a mount that has storage for excess cables. Cables that are exposed are eyesores for everyone. There are mounts that come with sleeves where you can hide the cables.
