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.
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.

The first step is choosing the right wall and specific spot for your TV. Consider viewing angles, sunlight, and proximity to power outlets.
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.
Once you’ve marked the studs, it's time to drill pilot holes and attach the mount bracket to the wall.
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 the TV into position (a two-person job!) and secure it to the bracket.
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.
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.
