Mounting your TV to the wall using a bracket makes your home entertainment system less cluttered, saves on floor space and can help to give you the best viewing angles. It’s also a really safe and practical way to keep the screen away from any potential knocks and bumps.
It’s really important to find the right bracket for the size of your TV. To make things easier, there are a range of guidelines that match TVs to suitable mounts called VESA dimensions. Check the specifications on our TV product pages to find the correct figure for your model. If you already have your TV, the dimensions can be found in the product manual. Now, all you have to do is find a bracket that matches up to your TV.
A fixed wall mount is ideal as it allows you to place your TV close to the wall. They leave just enough space for your cables, leaving everything looking neat and tidy. If you’re considering a fixed wall mount, have a think about which wall it’s going to go on first. The bigger the wall the better as you’ll have more room to place it at the perfect height for your normal viewing angle.
With a tilting wall mount, you have the option to adjust your viewing angle either up or down. This is a good option for televisions that are placed quite high up, like on a bedroom wall. Tilting also helps to reduce glare and reflections from lights and windows and makes cable changes really quick and easy.
If you like to switch things up, a full motion wall mount is for you. You can tilt and swivel horizontally and vertically and even pull the TV to and from the wall, giving you complete flexibility over how you view your favourite shows. These are perfect for living rooms and open plan spaces as you can chop and change angles to suit where you’re sitting.
If you decide that mounting is for you, we suggest attaching the bracket to a robust wall that can take the weight of a large TV, rather than a cavity or partition wall. There’s a lot of heavy lifting involved in mounting a TV, so get someone to help you out; many hands make light work after all!
Your TV doesn’t have to be mounted on your wall to look good. If fitting a bracket isn’t for you, a stand might be just the ticket. That way, you’ve got somewhere to neatly store any consoles, Blu-ray players, and your favourite games or films. There are also options with cable management features, so everything will be tucked away and tidy. Sound good?
If you want to wall mount your TV, you'll need the VESA dimensions first - they tell you what size bracket you'll need. You can find this info on our product page or in the TV manual. Once you know which size you're after, it's time to pick a bracket type and there are a few to choose from:
Once you’ve found the right bracket you need to install it onto the right wall (we suggest a robust wall rather than a cavity or partition). From there follow the step-by-step guide that came with your mount, and you’ll be ready to pop your TV on in no time. Just remember, many hands make light work, so get someone to help with the heavy lifting.
If you want to keep your wall-mounted TV looking sleek with no wires on show, there’s a few ways to try:
Removing your TV from a wall mount is generally easy, it just takes a bit of care to prevent the TV and wall mount from being damaged. The first step is to disconnect the TV from the mains and remove any external connection wires – you don’t want to get tangled up at a time like this. Then, remove the protective element that secures your TV to the mount (each model could have a different part, so if you’re not sure consult the manual).
Next you need to lift the TV off the mount. We recommend doing this with 2 people, so you don’t damage anything. Now all that’s left to do is put it somewhere secure where it can’t fall.
