Designer Andrew Pike gives a lesson on TV placement in a family room.
Andrew Pike’s tips for the perfection TV placement!
HEIGHT – Mount the TV at eye level…while seated!
This is usually about 39 inches from the floor.
DISTANCE – No matter how much you want that 75” TV, it won’t work for a small space! Use this calculation to determine how far away it should be from your seating area:
Minimum distance: Size of TV divided by 8
Maximum distance: Size of TV divided by 4
Ex. For a 48” TV it would be a minimum of 6 feet (48/8) to a maximum of 12 feet (48/4) from your sofa
ANGLE – Keep in mind which way you want to tilt your TV mount/bracket depending on where you’ll be watching the most, and so that there isn’t a glare from lamps.
Ultimately, it’s a personal decision! Make sure you’re comfortable with how you like to watch TV the most.
