What is a TV stand?

If you decide to buy a new TV, there are some steps to turn on your movie, TV show, sports and favourite news to see the news. Some of them can be evident, such as determining the size of the screen you need and choose any function you want, and you must choose a TV brand. However, there are some small things to see, like how to place your new TV.

We must know before buying a television, and some of these most important topics, which include why hearing television needs before going first and buy a TV, has already been covered. Well, in this guide, we often want to talk about the forgotten steps, but it is important in a larger system how to place your television.

There are two main options: wall mounting and support. This guide uses methods and disadvantages of how to install a television and help decide which of the two are optimal.


What is the TV stand?

The easiest and easiest way to configure your TV includes placing the TV on a flat surface. This is usually a television stand or a medium height table and can be seen. The flat-screen televisions of today, OLED or plasma, television is stable base support. This also has a single base of the stem or a leg at the bottom of the lower part.

These are often the easiest to install and can be done at home immediately with basic tools. If the table or TV support is already installed, you can go immediately by placing the TV. The television remains stable at the stand, and as a result, you can also manage the distance from the walls, the cables and other devices used on television.


When should you use a TV stand? 

Maintaining a reasonable distance from the wall of the back of the TV facilitates access to the port on the back of the television and the support with the Set-top box, the Blu Ray player and other devices, such as the Game Console there is storage. Or a soundbar. You can move the TV quickly and easily as necessary. This is useful in some scenarios, such as cleaning, vision angle change, or changing it to a new room.

You need a table or another flat face to place a television, and it should be large enough for the television base support. In many cases, the support or the base leg can be too broad and is easily suitable for existing tables. In addition, the height of sight depends on the height of the support, and many people can be too low. 

Another great disadvantage is your television and security for children in your home. The TV is not installed, and I'm just resting on the flat side. Therefore, it can be easily delivered; even a small accidental thrust can be defeated, which can damage television itself or hurt someone.


TV wall-mounted installation instructions

As the name suggests, wall-mounted installation includes installing the TV directly on the wall. Whether in the living room or the bedroom, you can place the TV on the wall in front of the seat, allowing you to watch it from a convenient location. 

Wall-mounted installation is not as easy as bracket installation; users need to spend some effort to put the bracket on the wall and put the TV on the bracket. If you are not used to using tools or drilling screw holes yourself, you may need to rely on professionals to install the wall bracket and TV for you. 

Most TVs today have a wall mount option, and the box usually contains a basic low profile mount. Also, many TV manufacturers will provide a free wall installation when you make your purchase, so you just need to wait patiently for a technician to come to install it for you.


Why Might You Want a Wall TV?

The biggest advantage of a wall TV is that it saves space. You don't need a table or any surface space to place the TV, which can be useful in a small room or home. This is also aesthetically pleasing because it can provide a more minimal look and allows for more flexibility in the placement of the TV. You can also choose how high you want the TV to be from the wall. 

The wall-mounted installation also eliminates the size problem; you no longer need to worry about installing a TV in the space you own, as long as the wall is large enough to accommodate the TV. Therefore, you can have a larger screen size without worrying about how to place it in your viewing room.


Disadvantages of Wall Mount

  • Wall Mount Bracket However, this installation method also has its disadvantages. It usually requires professional installation, which may increase the cost and effort of buying a new TV. Whether you do it yourself or a professional, you need to ensure that the installation is safe and correct because the stand can support your heavy (and expensive) TV. 
  • Improper installation may mean that the bracket is loose, causing the TV to fall and be damaged. In addition, you should be especially careful in areas with strong vibrations that may cause the bracket to loosen, such as construction sites, train tracks, or train stations. 
  • Wall-mounted installations may also have difficulty accessing the ports on the back of the TV because most wall-mounted installations are low-key and keep a very small space between the TV and the wall. This may also cause problems when connecting the device to the TV, or you need a special cable to do so. Also, unless specifically hidden in the wall, cables such as power and HDMI cables can be visible, naturally requiring additional civil and electrical engineering. 
  • Additional equipment, including set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, game consoles, or desktop steam equipment, requires a table, stand, or cabinet to be placed near the TV, which may lose space savings and aesthetic quality of wall-mounted installation.


Different types of wall mounts 

There are many types of wall mounts on the market. Here are a few options:

  • Flat Mount

  • The most basic type of wall mount, this is a simple accessory that is generally provided as part of most TV retail packages. It takes up very little depth, and you can keep the TV close to the wall where you install it. These mounts do not provide flexibility or changes in viewing angle and position, and they do not allow the TV to move easily because they generally rely on clips to connect the TV to the main mount. However, this type of installation is inexpensive, easy to install, and is often the safest way to mount a TV on the wall.

  • Hook Installation

  • This type of wall mount uses a hook on the TV to connect to the wall mount. It is similar to a flat installation but allows the TV to be removed from the installation quite easily when necessary. This makes it easy to access the ports on the back of the TV and also helps with cleaning. Hook mounts are not widely used anymore, and now most flat mounts connect to the main bracket using a hook method.

  • Tilt/Swivel Mount

  • This mount is very similar to a flat mount but can tilt or rotate (or in some cases both) the TV for proper positioning. It allows you to adjust the viewing angle, which is useful when you have different viewing positions in the same room (such as multiple sofas or even on the floor). This design means that it is more suitable for smaller TVs, as larger TVs may be too heavy for this type of installation.

  • Full motion bracket

  • This is the most complex (and most expensive) type of TV wall mount. It allows the TV to be tilted in various ways according to the viewer's position and is best used in large rooms with many seating options. It can also be used in professional environments such as office conference rooms. 

    Some brackets may also have a retractable arm that allows the user to set the distance from the TV to the wall. It can also be used to access the port on the back of the TV when needed. It provides maximum flexibility and ease of use and is generally suitable for TVs of all sizes.
