3 Benefits of Mounting Your TV

If you recently purchased a flat screen TV or already own one that is taking up precious floor space, you may want to consider mounting it to the wall with a Kanto TV mount.

Today’s TVs are slimmer and lighter than ever and virtually all of them feature standardized mounting holes called VESA patterns that ensure compatibility with most TV mounts. Taking advantage of these pre-established mounting holes is a safe and easy way to get more out of your TV.

Not sure what a VESA pattern is? Check out our blog post outlining the basics on how to read your TV’s VESA pattern and how to choose the right mount to get you set up in no time.

There are three compelling TV mounting pros for why you would want to mount your TV to the wall.

Reason #1 – It Saves Space

By mounting your TV to the wall, you gain a sizeable amount of floor space that would otherwise be taken up by a TV stand or media cabinet. This gives your entertainment area a cleaner, less cluttered atmosphere, and is especially beneficial for people living in small apartments, condos, and tiny homes.

Reason #2 – Safety

Today’s TVs are more susceptible to tipping over and having them unsecured can pose a risk to children and pets. Toddlers who are accustomed to playing with smartphones and tablets are especially a concern, as they may think that a TV is a touchscreen and naturally try to grab and swipe it.

Having your TV mounted on the wall will give you peace of mind by keeping your TV out of arm’s reach of children and eliminating any dangers of it falling over.

Reason #3 – Viewing Angles

To really get the most out of your TV, you’ll want to ensure it is visible from multiple viewing angles. To achieve this, use a full motion TV mount to give you the freedom and flexibility to position your TV anywhere you want it.

With extension, swivel, and tilt capabilities, a full motion mount will help to reduce glare, improve line-of-sight, and even give you the ability to watch TV from other rooms.

These TV mounting pros show that spending a bit of time and effort to mount your TV to a wall is an easy way to enhance the appearance of your entertainment area, while also improving the safety and functionality of your TV.
