Deciding on buying a wall mounted TV or having a TV stand is one of the decisions you will need to make before purchasing your new unit.

It all depends on the size of your house, and where you will be placing your screen.

There are pros and cons to each television set. In some areas of your house a TV that’s wall mounted might work better in a specific room, while in others a television stand might be better suited.

Wall Mounted TVs

Pros

• The most obvious benefit of having a wall mounted TV would be the space factor. You won’t need any floor space. You also won’t need to build or buy an entertainment unit, or fit your TV into your current wall unit.
• It’s considered classier or more sophisticated by some people to have a TV that’s wall mounted. This works especially well in larger living areas or family rooms.
• You won’t have to worry about pets or children running around and tripping over cables, or someone bumping into your TV on the floor.

Cons

• Having a wall mounted TV exposes wires and cables that an entertainment or wall unit may have otherwise covered up. This is especially the case if your TV is set up as an entertainment unit with surround sound that connects the DVD player, speakers, etc. Some devices are available as a wireless option, but not all of them. It’s best to check this first before making your purchase.

TV Stands

Pros

• TV stands can offer storage space underneath them, as well as practical value.
• They can also be used to hide visible cables and wires that wall mounted TVs are unable to do.
• There is normally place to connect your DVD, game system and surround sound, without needing additional brackets or table space.
• It can be the focal point of your living room or family room by making use of the stand and storage underneath it for the placement of accessories, books, plants, pots of flowers, and other decorative ornaments.

Cons

• A TV stand is bulkier than a wall mounted TV. It also takes up a lot of floor space – this can become a problem if you have precious floor space available.
• A TV stand can be damaged if it is accidentally knocked over, and it can even cause damage to yourself or someone else in the process.

There are many things to keep in mind when deciding between a wall mounted TV or a TV stand. Before you make your decision and buy a new TV, ask yourself the following questions:

• In which room do I want to put the TV?
• How big is this room?
• How much room do I have available for this TV? (This includes floor space and wall space).
• How much storage space will I need for movies, books, etc?
• Is there anything in my house that could cause my wall mounted TV to fall off?

Once you have answered these questions, you will be able to make the right TV choice that’s best for you (http://www.tvrepairlondon.co.uk/services/).
