Ideas for Placement of Your LED TV

Ideas for Placement

Unlike the old box TVs your parents had in the corner of the living room, the slim form factor of today's flat-panel displays makes them ideal for anyone who wants to be creative with their room design. There are many interesting and functional places to place a TV without sacrificing its viewability.

Above the Fireplace

Fireplaces are already a focal point in most homes, so they are often a natural place to mount a flat-screen TV, but you have to be aware of the temperature. The operating temperature for Samsung LED TVs, for example, doesn't exceed 104 degrees Fahrenheit. A wide mantel below the TV will protect it in some cases, but you should use a thermometer while a fire is burning before mounting a TV over the fireplace. If it's a wood-burning fireplace, watch for ash that could accumulate on the TV and its vents.

On a Wall

Hanging a flat-panel TV on a wall is the most convenient location for many rooms. When selecting a mounting kit, pay close attention to its depth. Samsung Mini Wall Mounts have a profile between 0.7 and 1.6 inches, which is enough to ventilate the TV without making its profile the center of attention in a small room.

Hidden Away

If you don't watch a lot of TV in a small room, like a bedroom or home office, positioning the TV in a cabinet or closet keeps it out of the way when it isn't in use, while making it available just by sliding open a door. Placing a small TV on a shelf in a book case or mounting it on the wall above a shelf also minimizes its impact on a room without affecting your view.
