One of the biggest advantages of wall mounting your TV is the space it saves within your living area without the need for TV units and stands. In addition to the practicalities of having your TV on the wall the aesthetics can far surpass the traditional TV positioning options.
For many of us, gone are the days that our TVs were perched upon a unit in the corner of the room. Whether it’s Sky, Netflix, YouTube, console playing, movie nights or keeping up with the news there has been an increase in customers wanting their TVs more ‘front and centre’ in their living areas. In addition, the desire to get rid of TV units all together is now a popular choice.
Customers regularly ask us if it possible to mount their TV to the wall, and the answer is yes! We supply the appropriate brackets, fixtures and fittings for any type of mount. The truth of it is that any TV is able to be mounted to any wall with the right bracket. We use either flat or pull out brackets, with the load of the weight spread across the bracket and wall you can have 100% confidence that your TV is securely mounted.
The first thing to consider is the type of wall. In many newer build properties, the walls are hollow which is great for concealing cables. ‘Dot and Dab’ or stud walls provide the perfect cavities for feeding cables. We supply all the HDMI cables that you will require, dependent on your needs and will ensure they are the right size and length to complete the job.
When it comes to solid walls, hidden cables are still possible. It involves chasing the walls, re-plastering and painting that area but the desired finished look is still 100% achievable. Some customers with solid walls opt for a Media Wall and this is dependent on the look they are trying to achieve. Plug sockets can be fitted behind the TV and the option of backlighting the TV can really give the Wow Factor.
