Modern models of OLED, as well as Led TVs, compared to lamp TVs, have more advanced features, they are more practical in everyday life, and also allow you to view audio and video content if you have a connection Internet (if the device is equipped with the Smart TV option). In addition, modern TV models can be installed not only on a bedside table or cabinet, but also mounted directly on the wall of the room using the VESA system. It should be noted that the vast majority of popular TV models from different manufacturers are equipped with this mounting system.
However, in this case, some users will most likely have a completely logical question: how to determine the most acceptable TV height from the floor when mounted on the wall, for comfortable viewing of a variety of movies, video content and TV shows. This issue is especially relevant for large-screen TVs, which range in screen size from 32 inches. Indeed, compared to simple cabinets that serve as a TV stand, in the case of wall mounts, this device cannot be quickly moved to another place. After all, for this, new holes for the fasteners will have to be drilled in the wall.
In order to determine the required height for wall mounting the TV as correctly and accurately as possible, it is recommended to follow a few simple rules. First of all, you need to calculate the most comfortable distance between the user and the TV, which will then be fixed to the wall surface. This parameter is calculated taking into account the diagonal size of the installed TV.
According to generally accepted standards, the recommended distance between the viewer and the TV screen should correspond to the size of its two diagonals. The most optimal distance between the TV and the user should be about 3-4 diagonals. Therefore, the distance from the user directly to the TV screen is first calculated taking into account the diagonal size of the device.
|TV Screen Diagonal Size (inches)||Distance from viewers directly to the screen (m)|
|80 and over||From 6|
When watching television on the television, the user’s gaze should not move from the center of the screen more than 20-30 degrees. When wall mounting the TV, the best level is where the middle of the TV screen is directly above the user’s eye level.
Such a parameter as the optimal value of the height of the lower part of the TV from the floor, when mounting this unit on the wall, also depends on the type of room in which the TV is installed. The ideal height for placing a TV on the wall in the kitchen is 1.5-1.7 m. Thanks to this arrangement of the screen, it will be convenient for the user to watch it while standing.
In the living room, the TV should be hung at a height of 1-1.2 m from the floor if you plan to watch it while seated, for example, on chairs or in an armchair. To comfortably watch TV in the living room, while lying down, it should be placed on the wall at a height of about 1.2-1.5 m.
However, it is recommended to take into account the size of the sofa or bed on which the viewer will lie. After all, for example, if you plan to install a TV in a bedroom that has an ordinary bed with a classic low height, then in this case, for comfortable viewing, the TV should be hung at a distance of 0, 5 to 0.75 m from the ground. Also, for bedrooms, it is recommended to select VESA mounts that can rotate and tilt the device attached to them.
When installing a TV in a children’s room, first of all you need to take into account the growth of the child. At the same time, it is recommended to select the most optimal growth option so that in a few years, as the child grows, it will no longer be necessary to hang the device on the wall. In the children’s room, it is recommended to hang the TV at such a height that the child cannot knock or hit it. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the child can watch TV in any position (sitting, lying and even standing). Therefore, it is recommended to hang the TV near the play areas where the child spends most of his time.
