TV on the Wall | TV Installation NY
It seems that large screen HDTVs have made the traditional idea of entertainment centers somewhat obsolete. Gone are the days of sitting large, boxy televisions on massive wooden cabinets in living rooms. Now high definition televisions are thinner and lighter than ever, and many people prefer to mount them on the wall, adding some small shelf nearby for related electronic equipment like disc players, A/V receivers, and remotes. HDTVs look great mounted on the wall by themselves, and their large size doesn’t leave the wall looking bare.
Although most consumers choose to mount their TVs on the wall, many prefer not to do it themselves. This can be somewhat difficult and often requires the installation of large mounting hardware. The process of mounting the brackets to hold the TV also involves finding studs in the wall to screw the hardware in to, something many consumers find difficult.
For this reason, many people choose to get their TV on the wall installed by a professional. Many companies offer this as a service with the sale of HDTVs. Some of the biggest TVs to come out recently are actually so large, they come with a delivery and installation package included in the price – 80+ inch TVs are a little much for one person. For most TVs, however, this service is inexpensive and will save the consumer a lot of headache from having to unbox and install a large, bulky TV. Whatever the TV, wall mounting is the preferred method for nearly all consumers.
