4 Tips for Where You Should Put Your TV

Whether you've just moved into a new home or are rearranging your furniture, one of the many questions you may ask yourself is, "Where should I put my TV?" As televisions become bigger, wider, and even curvier than their technological ancestors, it's become increasingly difficult to find the perfect position for it.

But fret not! We've compiled the four key considerations to help you determine the best placement for man's greatest invention in your home.

4 Things to Consider When Placing a TV

1. The Room

Pay attention to the layout of your room. Which walls are the windows and doors located? Ideally, you'll want to place your television away from high-traffic areas and at an angle where sunlight from the windows won't cause a glare on your screen. Feel free to experiment with placement before finding studs and punching holes in your wall. 

2. The Furniture

Do you want your television to be the focal point of your room, or humbly honor it on the side? The way you arrange your furniture can make it so your guests and family are encouraged to watch what's on the television by facing the chairs toward the screen, or to engage in conversation by facing the chairs toward each other with the television catty-corner to the sofa. 

3. The Television

As previously mentioned, TVs these days aren't the size they used to be. With 3D-TVs entering a home near you, you've got to make space for the next best thing. The size of your television can greatly help you determine the best location for it, whether it be in the middle of an entertainment center or hanging above the roaring fireplace. 

You may also want to make sure that your TV placement won't affect your viewing. For example, LCD TVs can appear blurry if you aren't looking straight at them, so be sure that you can perfectly watch TV at every angle (or at least from every seat in the room). 

4. Your Preference

At the end of the day, where you choose to place your TV is entirely up to you. It's your home, after all, and it's your decision that matters the most. If you want to hang your TV in the corner of the room, go for it! If you want to set it above the dresser in the bedroom, all the power to you! It's your home, so make sure that it's the perfect reflection of your personal style.
