Here are some things to think about before making a choice:

Every year, contemporary TVs get bigger and thinner, and we show them in our homes in different ways. Old wooden corner TV cabinets are a thing of the past, and even slender TV cabinets aren't necessarily necessary anymore.

Floating TV units are gaining popularity as TVs become more ingrained in our daily lives.

What are a few advantages of attaching your TV to the wall?


Save Space By eliminating the need for a separate TV cabinet, wall mounting your TV frees up important floor space. Installing an infrared extender to operate your Blu-ray player, amplifier, or any other device enables you to hide your TV accessories away from view.

Safety of Floating TV Units

If a TV is on a stand, the three main causes of tipping over are children, cats, and charades. Your family members and your TV can both be kept secure by mounting your TV on a wall to prevent unintentional bumps.

To achieve that clean, minimalist look, reduce clutter. All of your cables are run through the wall cavity when you put your TV on the wall. By doing this, visual clutter, trip risks, and ugly cable tangles behind the TV are all reduced.


What potential obstacles should I be aware of?

How you mount the TV on the wall will mostly rely on the type of wall in your house. Make sure the bracket is mounted on a sturdy fixing if you plan to install your TV on a plaster wall. Finding a stud or substantial piece of wood in the wall is necessary to avoid having a TV that is mounted to the floor.

On the other hand, a brick wall will be more stronger for mounting your TV, albeit it may be more difficult to pass the TV wires through the wall. Alternative choices are available, and it is best to discuss them with your installer before the work is done.

Another factor to take into account is any adjacent chimneys, as they may make it more difficult to access the cable. The heat from the fireplace may also have an effect on TVs placed above a chimney. When a screen is set above a shelf or fireplace, it is important to take into account its height because it can change the viewing angle.

The dependability of the WiFi signal that a Smart TV receives might also be impacted by wall mounting the TV. This is a result of the TV being so close to a wall, which can interfere with the signal, especially if your modem or router is distant from your floating TV unit.

There are several approaches to reduce this problem:

  1. Install a network cable through the wall cavity to hardwire into the TV so that it no longer responds to WiFi signals.
  2. Move your modem or router to a nearby area.
  3. Put in a wireless access point (WAP) to strengthen WiFi in your home.

A competent TV installation will route the cords through your wall cavities wherever possible. This conceals the connections and gives your TV setup a truly sleek appearance.

Kenner Electrics often mounts a recessed power outlet and cable management plate behind the TV when mounting a television. The HDMI cables, internet cables, antenna cables, and power cables for the TV will all be run through the wall to the location of your A/V equipment. This indicates that there aren't any cords under your TV that are readily visible!

Your A/V equipment and devices (such as a Blu-ray player, amplifier, and Apple TV) can be maintained away from the TV in a more acceptable location without taking up valuable floor space underneath the TV because all of the cables are running in the wall cavity. Without requiring a direct line of sight, you can operate these devices with your standard remote control by using infrared repeaters.


Pros and Cons of Entertainment Centres

Since most people already have entertainment centres at home or are accustomed to using them, we'll start there.

Entertainment centres can be elegant pieces of furniture that connect your living area together or make a design statement, showcasing your individual taste. They are an upgrade from traditional TV stands. For a room architectural focal point, you may even make them look to be built-in.

  • Storage – Since entertainment centres are typically substantial pieces of furniture, they can provide easy storage for your toys, dcor, movies, and books.

Cons of an entertainment centre include: • Less safe for children—On average, a child dies every two weeks when a TV or piece of furniture tips over. To prevent tipping, TV stands and entertainment centres should be secured to the wall. The majority of furniture-climbing incidents involve toddlers.

  • Don't function well in all contexts — If you don't have enough room or the correct room arrangement, entertainment centres won't function well. They function well in living rooms with a wall that is solely for televisions. In small spaces, such as bedrooms or kitchens? Not really.

Entertainment centres are stationary pieces of furniture, which limits the viewing height and angle. You will need to mount the TV to the wall or raise the entertainment centre (which is NOT SAFE) in order to adjust the TV's height for optimal viewing height. TVs mounted on stands or floating TV units can rotate their bases a small amount from side to side, but they aren't completely mobile.

  • Dust below – Unless you have a robot vacuum, you'll probably have to sweep or vacuum under the entertainment centre. If you have little ones, you'll spend some quality time digging through the dust with a flashlight to find their favourite toys.

When would a media centre be the best option?

If you need a lot of storage and have a single free space where you can put the television, an entertainment centre can be a better option for you.

Pros and Cons of floating TV units

A TV mount is one option to introduce new elements into your room if you're trying to update it.

Pros of TV Mount

  • They work with entertainment centres, so you have storage if you need it. But because you don't have to worry about the proper viewing height with a TV mount, you have more discretion when choosing what furniture to utilise.
  • They are safer for children – Because the TV is mounted on the wall, it won't fall and harm your children or pets.
  • Minimalist and contemporary — floating TV units can be a functional option for spaces where you don't have room for additional furniture or a stylistic decision for a basic look. What about a TV in your kitchen, game room, or bedroom? If you could watch your favourite shows while doing the laundry or working out, how much more would you be able to accomplish?
  • More rearranging options — Since a mount may be used with or without furniture, you have more rearranging choices. An entertainment centre that only fits on one wall is not a need for you. Rearrange the furnishings or mount the TV in a different location. Virtually everywhere, even the ceiling, can be used to install TVs!
  • Excellent mobility for optimal viewing angles Get a tilting mount for your TV so you can turn it downward (particularly for gaming or above a fireplace), or get a complete motion so you can view from wherever in the room.

Cons of floating TV units include: • No storage – You will need to determine where to put your belongings, although a TV mount gives you more freedom. Select a surfboard bench, an industrial locker, or a vintage dresser. Add elegant and useful wall-mounted media shelves or decorative floating shelves to the wall. Your choice.

  • Hiding the cables – Not knowing what to do with the wiring is one of the biggest reasons people hesitate to get a mount. Not to worry, we have a simple fix for it.

When Would a TV Mount Be the Best Option?

Floating TV units are unquestionably the best option if you have young children, are limited on space, don't need additional storage (for a television in the bedroom, for example), want complete control over where you set your TV, or want numerous viewing angles.

Wall-mounted TVs

TV wall mounts are growing in popularity for many people for a variety of reasons. Although many TVs today are thin and light enough to mount simply and include mounting holes, installation can still be difficult. Here are a few advantages and disadvantages of TV wall mounts.

The Benefits of floating TV units

  • Space-saving and child- and animal-proof: One of the biggest advantages of a wall-mounted TV is that it doesn't require a large TV stand to take up room on the floor and is safely out of children's and dogs' reach because it is attached to the wall. In addition to making the space feel larger and providing screen protection, hanging your TV on the wall with a bracket offers extra design options. 1. • Sleek and Modern Finish: A TV wall mount is the best option if you want your room to seem stylish and contemporary. • Easily Customizable to Create the Ideal Viewing Experience: Unlike a TV stand, a TV wall mount allows you to customise where your TV is so that it is ideal for your viewing experience and the orientation of the room and furniture. It is not only a great option for smaller spaces but is also a stylistic choice that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing2. For the optimum viewing experience, you can select a certain height for your TV wall mount and leave room for extra tilting or adjusting. The wall mount's features and flexibility to be customised are important factors to take into account if you're trying to decide which TV wall mount to buy. 3. The Drawbacks
  • Additional Installation Work: One potential disadvantage of mounting a TV on the wall is that it takes more time and work to set up and needs to be done correctly to be strong enough to support the weight of the TV and wall mount. It doesn't require a lot more work than a TV stand, though. For further details, see our installation guide for TVs.

Floating TV Units

One of the most widely used methods of TV presentation has been universal TV stands for a long time. TV stands with mounts have advantages and disadvantages that should be taken into account. They have a lot of storage space and a larger footprint than their wall-mounted counterparts.

The Benefits of floating TV units

One of the main advantages of a TV stand is that it provides extra storage space for DVD players, cable boxes, game consoles, and other items. A TV stand provides you with a secure location to store numerous objects that need to be hidden. 4. A TV stand allows simpler access to cables and outlets, in contrast to a TV wall mount where cables and wires are frequently fed through the wall for a clean look.

The Drawbacks

  • Potential for TV to Be Knocked Over: If you have pets or children, placing your TV on a TV stand can place it at higher risk for being knocked over. • Takes Up More Space: While TV stands have more storage space, they also take up significantly more space in the room, which can make the room feel smaller and more cramped. • Less Customizable: While a TV wall mount allows you to choose the height that works best for you and the space, many TV stands are roughly the same height and offer much less customization to improve your viewing experience.7 Additionally, if your TV stand is not fastened to the wall, it can present a potential safety hazard because of its risk of tipping over if climbed on or knocked into. 8. Concluding

While both a wall bracket and a stand for your television have advantages of their own, ultimately it comes down to your particular circumstances. Which one do you believe will work best for your family? The best alternative for you may be to mount your TV if your space is limited. A stand can be the ideal solution if you'd prefer to conceal cords and cables. Making your final decision will be made easier if you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of floating TV units.
