Wall Mount Types
When choosing the best wall mount – you can choose from a basic fixed mount or one with unlimited positioning for your TV. What you want from your mount will depend on which one is right for you. Do you want to be able to adjust the TV so you can view it from different locations in the living room? Do you want to be able to angle the TV for different viewing angles and be flush against the wall when not in use? Below are your different options.
Fixed TV Mount
A fixed TV mount is the easiest and most cost-friendly TV mount. A fixed mount puts your flat-screen TV closer to the wall than any other mount. A fixed wall mount is a good decision if you sit directly in front of your TV. You can position this mount at the perfect height and center it to where it is eye-level when you are seated.
Tilt TV Mounts
A tilting wall mount gives you vertical viewing angle adjustments. The tilt lets your flat-screen TV be spaced out from the wall – about 2”. These mounts are good for TVs above a fireplace or on a high bedroom wall. The viewing angle adjustment allows you to reduce reflections from lights or windows.
Full-Motion TV Mount
Adding a full-motion TV mount gives you side-to-side swivel adjustment as well. Full-motion TV mounts are good for rooms with more than one viewing spot – such as a living room or home theater room.
Mounting TVs above a fireplace has become a more popular option. But lifting your head to watch TV can later cause neck pain. With a fireplace mount, you can pull your TV out and over the mantel when you want to watch TV, so this brings your TV to eye level.
A regular wall mount will not work in some homes, such as brick walls. But, if you want to mount your TV, you can opt for a ceiling mount.
Things to Consider When Buying a TV Mount
Now you have decided on the type of TV mount you want – you must decide where you will put it. You want to make sure that the flat-panel TV is in the right location in your living room or bedroom. Below are some things to consider when buying your TV mount.
Location – decide where you want to put your TV. There are some things to consider when placing your TV, sunlight, furniture, and viewing angles. Once you decide on the location, you must measure to ensure that the TV will fit.
Height and Placement – measure the area where you wish to place your TV. You will need to decide on how high you want your TV.
Distance for Viewing – everyone has different opinions on the best viewing distance. Some like sitting close; others are more sensitive and prefer to sit further back. It is recommended that you multiply the digital width of your TV by 2.5 to find the best distance from seating.
Tools – before your installation, ensure you have the proper tools. Tools for installing the TV mount, such as the mounting bracket, other mounting hardware, and the proper mount type that meets the measurements for your TV.
Double Check Your Work – before fully installing your TV and mount to the wall – double-check the measurements and location to ensure this is where you want your TV.

TV wall mount: types, selection, installation
Thanks to modern technology, we now have thin, almost flat TVs. Not only can they have any diagonal size – from small to huge, but also their weight is several times less than the old models. All this makes it possible to mount them on the wall. This option removes almost all restrictions – you can hang the TV even in the walk-through area, taking care of reliability. What is a wall mount for a TV, how to mount it – read on.

Site selection for hanging the TV
You can hang the flat screen TV on the wall or use the ceiling mount. The second option is less popular – the screen is too high. This type of installation is usually used in kitchens, where the walls are occupied by cabinets and lockers, and the TV itself is more like an accompaniment, and not the main occupation. In all other rooms – bedrooms, living rooms – most often they use a wall mount for a TV. Not installing it on the legs-stops, namely hanging it on special frames or mounting plates.
You can even find such a TV wall mount
First you need to determine the height of the TV on the wall. This parameter is selected individually, and for different heights and different types of furniture, the height may differ. They proceed from the fact that it is convenient to watch TV if the middle of its screen is at eye level and it is easier to determine it experimentally. In the living room, you need to sit on a sofa or chair, looking in front of you to determine the height of the middle of the screen. Approximately – this is 100-120 cm from the floor level.
Determining the height of the TV set
Approximately the same determine the height of the TV in the bedroom. Here, usually TV viewing takes place from the bed, so its height may be lower. But from this position it is more convenient to look not straight ahead, but slightly up, so too low is also inconvenient. The average height of the TV in the bedroom is about 100 cm. Again, this is the height of the middle of the screen.
Distance from furniture
This parameter is not entirely related to the topic of mounting a TV on the wall, but you can’t do without it either. Comfortable viewing distance depends on screen size. In fact, everything is simple here – there is a table in which the minimum and maximum values \u200b\u200bare indicated, you need to “fit” into this framework.
Distance to the TV
This table, by the way, can be used for another purpose – knowing the distance at which you will have a sofa or chair, choose the diagonal of the TV.
Types of TV mounts
Choose a TV wall mount after you have the TV. On its back wall there are holes for installing fasteners. You will need distances between them. By measuring them, you will know with what distance you need a suspension (this data is also in the passport). Some TV wall mount models allow you to change this distance, but not all. So you have to be careful.
OEM holes for fasteners in the rear panel
Another thing to pay attention to is the material from which the fasteners are made. They are made of plastic and metal. Plastic ones are suitable for small and light models. Metal – for heavier ones. There are also combined models – made of metal, but with plastic parts. In any case, you need to focus on the maximum weight of the TV that the mount can hold. This parameter is mandatory, along with the dimensions of the screen diagonal.
If you don’t need to rotate the TV screen, it is better to choose a fixed TV mount. This option takes up almost no space, allows you to hang the device almost close to the wall. There are models that allow you to hang the screen parallel to the wall, there is a fixed tilt.
- TV Bracket Non Wall Fixed Mount
- TV wall mount: model for “heavyweights”
- Fixed installation with a certain angle of inclination
- Universal model with the ability to adjust the size
- One part is mounted on the wall, the second is attached to the back of the TV
Consists of two plates. One of them is hung on the wall, the second is screwed to the TV. On one part there are protrusions, on the other – grooves. When mounting with protrusions, we cling to the grooves. Everything, the TV was hung on the wall. Naturally, the more the TV weighs, the thicker the metal should be on the bracket.
This type of TV wall mount allows you to change the angle of the screen relative to the floor. In some cases, this is convenient – you can expand the screen for a clearer perception of the picture.
- This type of TV mount can be used on a wall with a weak load-bearing capacity.
- Adjustable model for lighter models (LED and LCD)
This type of attachment takes up a little more space. Structurally, the models are very similar to the previous type, only one degree of adjustment has been added. Since the screen is usually tilted slightly down, it is the upper mount that makes it movable.
Installed on such brackets, the screen can be rotated both vertically (turns left and right) and horizontally (up and down). To ensure the possibility of such maneuvers, the screen is moved away from the wall at a fairly solid distance, and this must be taken into account.
- Plastic is used for models weighing no more than 20 kg
- They differ in different values of the angle of inclination and rotation.
- One of the metal models
Installed in multifunctional rooms where it may be necessary to rotate the screen. It can be used in the kitchen, in offices, in rooms where there are different functional areas. This TV wall mount is significantly more expensive, as it uses complex mechanisms to ensure rotation.
Some brackets (fixed and tilted) have a built-in bubble level in the wall-mounted part. When installing, it’s easier to navigate, but if you have a good and proven one, check the correct installation with it.
How to hang a TV on the wall: the choice of fasteners
Perhaps we should start with the choice of fasteners. Often, a wall mount for a TV is completed with fasteners – dowels. They are designed for the maximum weight that the bracket can hold, so they can be used. But they are only suitable for walls with normal bearing capacity – brick or concrete. Now, walls are often made of loose materials in which the dowels do not hold and nothing can be hung on them. For such walls there are fastenings.
To prevent the TV from falling off the wall, the fasteners for it must be selected correctly. They are plastic and metal. Since the TV still has a fairly solid weight, it is better to take metal dowels. The load that they can withstand is much higher than that of plastic ones.
Butterfly metal dowels look like this. Can be of different sizes, with different bearing capacity
When a dowel is screwed into the installed plug, the plug “opens up”, forming separate “wings”, which redistribute the load over a large area. It is due to this that you can hang something on the drywall.
But, even with such dowels, when installing the TV on a plasterboard wall, try to choose the installation height so that the top fastener of the base plate hits the profile or beam to which the plasterboard is attached. Otherwise, there is no guarantee that the sheet will withstand the load.
For loose and hollow bases
For hollow and crumbling bases, there is another fastener – chemical dowels. For crumbling and loose substrates, they consist of a capsule or ampoule, with glue and an anchor or stud. For hollow bases, a mesh cylinder is added to this set. When installing the TV on the wall, a hole is drilled for fasteners, it is well cleaned. This is a very important point. The hole must be cleaned of all crumbling particles (you can use a vacuum cleaner). Only in this way can one count on normal adhesion (adhesion to the material) and good bearing capacity of the fastener.
An ampoule/capsule is inserted into the prepared hole, a pin/anchor is screwed into it or hammered into it, and a dowel plug can also be installed. Next, you need to wait until the adhesive composition hardens (about an hour), after which you can continue to work.
- This is what a chemical dowel might look like
- This is how it works in hollow materials
- This explains why a chemical dowel is more reliable than a spacer.
In walls made of hollow bricks or building blocks, a mesh cylinder is first installed in the prepared hole. Then a capsule / ampoule is placed in the cylinder and all further actions are no different. Why is a cylinder needed? It does not allow the adhesive to spread much, but allows it to seep and adhere to the nearby material.
Is it possible to save money by using ordinary glue instead of chemical dowels? In general, it is possible, but without guarantees. Chemical dowels use an adhesive composition that provides adhesion to various materials, including plastic. Ordinary glue does not have such properties.
For thin walls
In some cases, it is necessary to hang the TV on a thin wall. Moreover, they are so thin that it will not work to install fasteners of the required length – it will come out on the other side. In this case, it is better to take not dowels or screws, but studs or bolts. Drill through holes, on the other hand, under the bolt head or stud nut, place a wide washer. This will give good bearing capacity even in gas or foam concrete.
Ways to install the TV on a thin wall
So that the fasteners on the back side of the wall do not spoil the picture, they can be “drowned”. To do this, drill a hole of small depth – so that you can hide the washer and cap / nut. After everything is installed and fixed, it will be possible to cover these holes with putty.
For thin walls with normal bearing capacity (brick) there is another way – to use a block of wood or a strip of metal as a gasket. This will help to install fasteners of normal length, at the same time more evenly distribute the load.
Mounting the TV on the wall: step-by-step instructions
After you have decided on the installation location of the TV, you need to check if there is any wiring in the wall. This can be done using a wiring detector. Only after that you can proceed with the installation.
Everything, TV wall mount installed, TV hanging. Can be included. But this instruction for hanging the TV on the wall is suitable for fixed and tilted models. Tilt-and-swivel brackets have only two extra steps – you have to remove the plate that attaches to the TV. Usually it is one or two bolts. An example of installing such a TV mount on the wall in the following video.
Homemade TV mounts
As you can see, TV mounts are no big deal. Especially those for fixed mounting. Moreover, the price for some models (of good quality, made of good metal) is rather high. To save money, you can try to do something similar using affordable and widely available materials.
Made of aluminum corners
Support structure for hanging the TV on the wall is made of four corners. Aluminum corners with a wall thickness of 3 mm were chosen, the width of the shelf – at least – 25 mm. Otherwise, it is very inconvenient to work.
You can also take steel ones, but they are more difficult to process – cut, drill – and the load from modern TVs is not so big.
We drill all the necessary holes, then install it on the TV
Cut off the corners according to the distance between the holes for mounting on the back of the TV with a margin of a couple of centimeters on each side. The most difficult thing is to make holes in the corners so that they exactly match the mounting ones, and are also on the same level. This will allow you to hang the TV on the wall evenly.
The pair of brackets attached to the wall can be drilled freely. It doesn’t matter. You can make two holes, you can – more. Depends on the bearing capacity of the walls. Two are enough for concrete. But you need to find out at what distance they need to be placed on the wall. It should be such that the corners fixed on the TV are either slightly wider or slightly narrower (by the thickness of the corner, plus one or two millimeters for free movement.
We fix the second pair on the wall
Having placed the corners, we circle the places for installing dowels, drill holes in the wall, insert plugs, but do not hang the corners yet. It is also necessary to drill holes in them into which the fixing fasteners will be inserted. To do this, we fold the corners as you will have them ready-made on the wall, mark where you need to drill holes, make it (the diameter is small). Now you can install on the wall.
This is how they are connected
Next, you need to align the holes in the corners, insert fasteners into them. In this case, bicycle spokes were used, but these can be bolts, studs, etc. That’s all the homemade TV wall mount is ready, the TV is fixed and ready to go.
This is a wall-mounted TV
With minimal effort
To avoid the hassle of adjusting the holes, perforated mounting brackets can be found. You will need to buy eight of them – two for each mounting hole. Four to fix on the TV, four – on the wall. Next, we hang it, insert fasteners into the holes for fixing (usually small-diameter bolts).
Homemade TV wall mount – a no-fuss option
If such corners seem unreliable to you, you can find reinforced ones in stores. They are used to fix racks in frame housing construction, they fix the load-bearing structures of roofs. So they can withstand a lot of pressure.
Swivel pipe bracket
This model allows you to turn the screen left and right, but you will need welding, a grinder, a powerful drill and a bending machine. But this mount will withstand even the heaviest of TVs. There is probably nothing to explain here.
Homemade swivel bracket for TV
- Two steel plates – for mounting on the wall and screen, in which holes are made at the corners for fasteners;
- Two pieces of steel pipe – larger and smaller diameter. They are selected so that a larger diameter is freely “put on” a pipe of a smaller diameter.
- Eight bolts or studs.
With some experience in welding, it will not be difficult to assemble all this, and the method of attaching to the wall is standard.
How to mount the TV bracket on different types of walls?
The most secure option is to attach the bracket to a load-bearing wall. It is capable of withstanding heavy loads and will definitely provide the TV with the right foundation, and it will protect you from unnecessary expenses to replace a fallen TV. But, unfortunately, it is not always possible to plan the space in such a way that the fasteners fall precisely on the supporting structure.
So you have to go with what you have, but don’t worry about giving up the bracket. Not at all! Fasteners can be correctly selected for lightweight walls. 9Brick;
All these materials differ in their structure, filling, rigidity and vapor permeability properties. Also, the materials will differ in varying degrees of density, as a result, some of them may crumble during drilling.
Let’s take a closer look at each type of wall and see how you can successfully hang even the heaviest TV on the walls.
Concrete and brick
These wall materials are considered the most reliable for mounting brackets. As a rule, even the installation kits already include the appropriate fasteners. Well, it’s worth saying that there are no special problems with mounting on these walls, with the exception of only a few nuances.
The first thing to consider is the presence of fittings in the wall, electric cable, gas pipeline, plumbing wiring. It is very important to provide for these things so as not to accidentally damage the corresponding engineering elements of the apartment. It will be easiest for those who have a plan for laying certain systems, or you yourself know their location. Otherwise, you will have to act randomly.
If the wall is covered with a smooth finishing material, apply masking tape in the area marked for the bracket to prevent the drill bit from slipping. Otherwise, there will be no problems with the installation. Choose in advance a suitable drill for a puncher, as well as dowels for installation.
This material consists of a mixture of gypsum and mineral or organic substances. These are the same blocks from which non-load-bearing partitions are made in apartments. I must say that the material is now very popular in construction, so the owners of new buildings should understand how to work with this material.
The most important point in installing the bracket on the plaster is the impossibility of using the fasteners included with the installation. They are not intended for crumbling material! Buy fasteners separately!
It is best to use ordinary bolts with nuts with a diameter of 6-8 mm. And keep in mind that you will need access to the wall from the other side, because the bracket will be installed with through drilling.
Through holes must be additionally fixed with PVA glue. Apply it to the hole made and install the bolts – the glue will additionally strengthen the wall at the drilling site and prevent it from crumbling. Wait for it to dry.
After that, it is important to make a wider hole on the back of the wall according to the diameter of the nut, also do not forget about the washers under the nuts. In the future, you can hide the fasteners behind the plaster, and no one will guess about the presence of it. Also coat the new hole with glue. Well, then you can mount the bracket and TV.
This material, it must be said, is almost not suitable for fastening any heavy types of equipment or objects. But to check it is real.
It is important to say here that, as such, fasteners will not be mounted on drywall (the material will not withstand), but on a metal profile inside the plasterboard sheathing. So keep in mind that it is necessary to think over the mortgages for installing the bracket deeply in advance. Well, keep in mind that the reliability of such a wall leaves much to be desired and you should not install large TVs on it.
At the planning stage of the room, it is necessary to provide for additional reinforcement of metal racks so that you can safely mount the equipment. In addition, choose special types of fasteners – drywall anchors or the so-called butterfly dowels.
Natural material is less durable than the same concrete, but its advantage is that the thicker the beam, the more reliable the fastening will be.
In fact, when mounting on a tree, the bracket can be used as a classic installation method, as well as through. But choose not complete fasteners, but self-tapping screws for wood with a length of at least 30 cm. Accordingly, for through fastening, select reliable and long bolts + provide holes for deepening nuts and washers.
