Television sets have seen many changes over the past decade. The conventional heavy and bulky TV sets have successfully been replaced by modern flat panel TVs. LED, plasma and LCD TVs are now popular options amongst potential TV purchasers.

There are many advantages of buying a flat panel TV. To start with, flat panel TVs are slim and lightweight. Having a sleek structure, they help to save considerable space in a room. Moreover, flat screen TVs can also be wall mounted using TV brackets. This gives a look of picture frame on a wall.

Why use TV brackets instead of stands or cabinets

Using TV brackets, you can mount your television set on a ceiling or a wall. This way, you can not only create free space in your room, but also give it a unique appearance. TV brackets are available in a number of different shapes and types. While some TV brackets are fixed, others allow tilting and swivelling. As tilting and swivelling TV brackets can be tilted to specific angles, you can enjoy television viewing in comfort without straining your neck to see the screen.

With a range of different TV brackets available, you should choose one based on your budget and requirements. The model and make of your TV set and the load bearing capacity of the television set are some other considerations while looking for TV brackets. Pubs, hotels, airports, railway stations and shopping centres are other places where TV brackets are usually installed.

Install your new TV set on the ceiling using TV brackets

TVs have become an essential part of every household. No matter how cramped, there is always space for a TV set. People have now started to realise that keeping a TV set on a cabinet or shelf can be very space consuming and also dangerous. Installing TV brackets can help make your house less cluttered.

Is the ceiling a good place for your TV set?

Installing your TV set on the ceiling gives you a different TV viewing experience. It also gives your home a modern appearance. Your room looks less cramped and more spacious. As a result, the extra space can be used for other things.

How do you install TV brackets on the ceiling?

Installing TV brackets on the ceiling is similar to installing them on the wall. You will need the same tools like a screwdriver, drill, stud finder and cable finder. You will also need to position the extendable arm of the bracket so that you get a good and even view of the television. You will have to attach the TV bracket to a solid joist so that it can carry the weight of the TV set. A good idea is to hire a professional to install the TV bracket as they will do the job efficiently and give you no cause to complain.

Also ensure that the wires and cables are neatly tucked away or are of the same colour as the ceiling so that they do not stand out.

Setting up an LCD TV near a fireplace

That vacant space over your fireplace can be filled by a classy new LCD TV. Brick and mortar is ideally used as a secure and a firm base to affix your TV bracket to. Your main concern when placing your TV near a fireplace should be the heat, and its effect on the wiring. Once you have this issue out of the way, you should not face any problems with the LCD TV or bracket.

Use a thermometer, or better still, a thermal image camera to check for any “hot” spots.

Before fixing the TV turn your fire onto its hottest setting. Once the fire is hot enough, use your heat monitoring device to check the temperature. Check the safest temperature at which a TV can run. You may have to check the TV manual for this. It is a good idea to put a thermometer next to the TV on the wall so that you can constantly monitor the heat level. Before fixing the TV in position, you may want to experiment with a cardboard cutout to work out the TV height and angle which is needed.

There are TV brackets with tilt and swivel options, so height will not be an issue. Just be sure to place your TV at the safest height possible, away from the heat. After you have securely installed your television, you can tilt and swivel your TV to get the best view.

LCD TV and DVD combination

LCD TVs have been gaining popularity for a long time now. But now there is a new product in the market which is attracting everyone’s attention, the combination of an LCD TV and a DVD player. This product is basically a high definition flat screen LCD television that has an in-built DVD player. There are some great deals that are available on these products.

The biggest advantage of such a product is that it is going to save you space in your house and will also not clutter your room as much as two separate gadgets would. This also implies that you do not have to deal with the any separately dangling wires and connections.

An LCD TV and DVD player combination is perfect for anyone who is a little tight on space and is deemed to be ideal for dormitory rooms or an office. It can also be used in places like a kitchen where you do not want the TV to be dominating the surroundings. Of course, it can also be used for your main room; that is your living room or your family room.

Many consumers are worried about the size that the TV must be in order to be able to integrate a DVD player into it. However, this is not the case which again makes it ideal for those places with very little space to spare for a television, as long as it’s mounted on a TV wall bracket.

The different types of stands for flat screen TVs

Although flat surfaces such as cabinets and tables can be used to site a TV, a specialised flat screen TV stand might be a good option. A flat screen TV stand is one that is designed with the purpose of complementing your flat screen TV and to optimise the viewing pleasure. There are a variety of stands that are perfect for flat screens.

If simplicity is what you are looking for then the pedestal style of flat screen TV stand will be an ideal choice for you. Irrespective of the size and weight of your TV, the pedestal stand will provide a sturdy base that will support the overall weight of the TV. With this stand, it is easy to raise or lower the TV for a perfect viewing position. Pedestal stands are cheap to buy and easy to set-up. However, they have a small frame due to which the TV itself takes up all the space leaving no room for any other appliances.

If you want a stand that will not only hold your TV but also your home cinema system, your speakers, and other appliances, then what you need is a centre stand. Unlike traditional stands, this stand has drawers and shelves that are meant to hold your gadgets and appliances. Also if you are looking for something like fully-fledged TV furniture then these stands are available in wooden console and entertainment centre units. The advantage of this type of stand is that they are not only beautiful but also very durable. Although they are relatively expensive, they are worth the investment.

If your house has a limited amount of space, then it can be safely said that your room will not have enough space for a regular TV stand. A wall mount TV stand will be the best option for you. The advantage of a wall mount TV stand, other than saving space, is that it gives you the opportunity to tuck all the cables neatly behind the TV. This gives a much neater appearance to the whole room.

A cantilever flat screen TV stand is said to be the most popular type of TV stand for high definition TVs. Its main advantage is that it provides more amount of flexibility in terms of positioning your TV.

It is very important to install your TV brackets properly because you do not want any mishap to occur that might end in you damaging your brand new television. It is quite a simple task but one has to be skilled enough to be able to mount the television on the wall without the fear of the whole structure collapsing.

Step one : Decide the location

Firstly you will have to decide on the location of the TV. Look for a suitable place and check the placement of the wall studs and whether they will be able to take the weight of your television. You can make use of a stud finder to check this. Make the markings on the wall for the studs so that it is easy for you to locate them later.

Step two : Attach the TV bracket

Make sure that the TV bracket is level before you anchor it on the stud wall. You will need some help for this task. The bracket needs to be held in place by one person. The other one has to attach the TV bracket onto the studs with the help of the screws. Make sure it is fixed level and do the adjustments if necessary.

Step three : Complete the process and hang your TV

Fix the TV onto the mounting holes of your bracket using the right screws and a screw-driver. You will have to hang the television on the wall mount TV bracket that you have already fixed on your wall. Ask your friend to hold the TV in one place as one person will have to join the two components together.
