The ideal viewing distance for your television is between 1.5 and 3x the size of your television in centimetres. So if you have a 100 cm television, you should be sitting somewhere between 1.5m and 3m away from your television. That is considered the ideal distance, but many people are obviously likely to sit farther away. It depends on the size of your room, the size of your television, how bright the room is, and several other factors. Furthermore, you should incorporate the height of the television as well. When it comes to viewing distance, the number of centimetres above your eyeline is considered part of the distance. So if your television is only one metre away from you but also a metre above your eyeline, it will be a two metre viewing distance.
That is one reason why so many people mount their televisions on the wall.
Mount Your Television to Get More Distance
If you want to have a very big television but you don’t’ have a lot of space in the room, you should consider mounting the television. A TV wall mounting installation service can enable you to get a bigger TV than you would have otherwise. So if you decide you want to 200cm television but you only have a few metres of space in your room, you can buy yourself some more space by mounting it higher on the wall.
Mounting it higher on the wall will also help you see the television from more parts of the room.
See from Farther Away
If your television is mounted up high, there will not be obstructions that block your field of vision. You’ll be able to see it over the tops of bookcases, shelves, and any other type of furniture. Furthermore, you can mount it on an articulated arm to make it even more versatile. Mounting the television on an articulated arm means that you’ll be able to move it so that it is angled in many different directions. If you have an open floor plan, you can move the TV around to see it as you move around the house.
Safe from Harm
Lastly, mounting your television keeps it safe from harm. If you have children or dinner guests, accidents can happen. They might bump into your television if it’s just sitting on a TV stand. The televisions are not very stable when they’re on stands. A casual bump is usually enough to knock it off its perch. When a TV falls, even if it’s not from a high place, it is almost always damaged.
If someone stumbles and reaches out to grab your television for stability, they’ll likely still fall, and will take your television with them. Mount your TV out of reach to protect it from accidents.
In addition to falls and stumbles, spills often damage televisions. If you spill your coffee in the morning as you turn your TV on, you can ruin it. If it’s mounted on the wall, you’re less likely to spill in it.
These are just a few of the reasons to mount your television.
