How to mount a TV on the wall for your corporate or living space!

Mounting a TV on the wall helps to free up table space and also makes watching TV a more pleasurable experience by creating a theater experience, increasing the picture and sound quality and the general ambiance of the room. It is a task that can easily be done with just a few tools. These include a tape measure, fish tape, a pencil, socket wrench, stud finder, powerdrill with assorted bits and a screw driver.

The first step would be to read the manufacturers instructions that come with the television and the mount itself. This is important so as to familiarize yourself with safety precautions necessary such as ensuring the cables meet the standards required and clearing the location behind where the TV will be mounted. You should also ensure that the bracket is appropriate for the size of your television.

Using the stud finder to analyze the density of the wall at different points, locate the joists, which are able to support the weight of the TV.  Most studs are 1.5 inches  wide, and 16 inches apart from one stud’s center to another one. Attach the mounting to the wall at the points where the studs or the drills are. The brackets are attached to the back of the television and later on fixed to the mounting bracket.

The brackets are mounted where there are four screws at the back of the television. To avoid the bracket falling, and destroying the TV, it is of utmost importance to ensure that it is directly bolted to the studs. After placing the mounting bracket on the wall, check to ensure it is level to avoid the screen leaning ominously to one side.

It is also important to hide all the cords in the wall to avoid the eye sore of too many cords. If your planning to hide the cords, then you first cut two holes in the wall, and in the middle of the mounting bracket, drill a square hole. Some distance from the floor, drill a smaller hole into the wall. Using a fish tape, put the cords into the first hole and out through the smaller one.

Now you can attach the TV on the bracket, and do not let go until you are absolutely sure it can hold the weight of the screen comfortably. You can then attach the cables to the TV and turn on the power.  Your TV is ready for your enjoyment and viewing please!
