So, there’s a TV that you’ve been considering installing in your home. You could get some great surround sound speakers or some fancy smartphone home automation, but there’s a more simple decision at the root of buying your new TV. Do you think that it’s in your best interest to install your television on a wall mount or would you rather use a dedicated TV stand with a more traditional base? There are pros and cons to both sides of the equation, so let’s examine!
TV Installation: Wall Mounting
Wall mounting is an excellent cosmetic choice for your new TV installation. A modern, flat panel HDTV can look elegant on the wall, plus it can help to free up space on a stand or floor space by utilizing a wall mounting system. Unfortunately, like most modern technologies, there are some drawbacks to consider. Wall mounting your new TV will require you to affix your TV installation with a semi-permanent mounting bracket to your wall. In addition to that, many of the cables required for television installations are not rated for building safety standards and therefore will need to be upgraded if you do choose to run the cables through the wall to your other television accessories like a cable box or game console. The power cable for your TV often will not be fire rated; you will also probably have to have an electrician install a new outlet behind the television so that the cable is not exposed in the wall mounting setup. Fortunately, the experts at Andrus Audio can complete this process from start to finish for you and make sure that you have an elegant and functional home television setup!
TV Installation: TV Stands
A traditional TV stand can make a TV installation much easier but does not present the modern, elegant look or feel that a wall mounted TV installation can provide. This option may prove to be a cheaper alternative for those on a tight budget, but oftentimes homeowners prefer to have a TV installation wall mounted if they intend to keep the home for a length of time. If you tend to reorganize the rooms of your home frequently, a television stand may be your best option!
