Ideal height to mount TV on the wall

TV wall mount height

Have you recently purchased a new (smart) TV and are you planning to mount it on the wall? What is the ideal height? To help you in this decision, we have listed a number of factors for you to consider.

How to find the ideal height to install your TV wall mount

There is no universal ideal height at which to mount your TV. Televisions come in a wide variety of sizes and everyone watches TV in their own individual way.

Yet, your eye level when watching TV can be used to determine the ideal height for your TV wall mount. When you are sitting on the couch, for example. When you are placing your TV on your cabinet, you have limited options to change the height of the screen.

Mounting your TV on the wall gives you the flexibility to choose your desired height for your perfect viewing experience.

Rule of thumb: the centre of your TV screen should be at eye level

  • So measure the eye level height of a person sitting.  

  • Then use this height to mount your TV bracket.

Do you plan to use a Vogel's cable cover to hide your cables? The height indicates a good height for your full-motion TV bracket to mount on top of it.
