The Art and Science of Installing a TV on Your Wall: A Complete Guide

Hanging a TV on your wall is a mix of art and science. It's an aesthetic choice, sure, but one that requires technical skills. This isn't a picture frame we're talking about—it's an electronic device that needs power, proper mounting, and seamless integration into your home-entertainment system.

Why Wall-Mount a TV?

  1. Space-Saving: Clears floor space and avoids clutter.
  2. Better Viewing Angles: Allows for optimal eye-level alignment.
  3. Enhanced Aesthetics: Gives a sleek, modern look to any room.

The Basics: Tools and Supplies You'll Need

Before diving in, make sure you have all the right tools and supplies. This is also where professional help, such as our domestic services, can come in handy.

Step-by-Step Guide to Wall-Mounting

Find the Right Spot

The first step is choosing the right wall and specific spot for your TV. Consider viewing angles, sunlight, and proximity to power outlets.

Identify Wall Studs

You can't just drill into any part of the wall; you'll need to find the studs. That's where a stud finder comes in.

Attach the Mount Bracket

Once you’ve marked the studs, it's time to drill pilot holes and attach the mount bracket to the wall.

Hook Up Cables

Before hoisting the TV, attach all necessary cables. This is where your home-entertainment setup really shines. Consider HDMI, power, and maybe even ethernet if you've got a smart TV.

Lift and Secure the TV

Lift the TV into position (a two-person job!) and secure it to the bracket.

Safety First: Get a Professional Check

Installing a TV is not just about getting those angles right for your latest Netflix binge; it’s also about safety. Incorrectly mounted TVs can be a hazard. Consider getting an electrical-safety-check-certificate for peace of mind.

The Added Benefits: Custom Options

For those who want more than the basics, think custom. From hidden cables and soundbar mounts to smart home integration, the sky's the limit. Our custom-lighting services can even add LED backlighting to your TV for an immersive experience.


Wall-mounting a TV can bring both functional and aesthetic improvements to your space. If you’re unsure about any step, our domestic services can take the load off your shoulders.
