Have you recently purchased a new (smart) TV and are you planning to mount it on the wall? What is the ideal height and viewing distance? To help you in this, we have listed a number of factors for you to consider.
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. Your eye level when watching TV can be used to determine the ideal height for your TV. When you are sitting on the couch, for example. You should make sure that the middle of your TV is mounted at eye level.
If you want to mount your TV higher on a wall, for example in the kitchen, bedroom or above a fireplace, then choose a tilting TV bracket. This will allow you to tilt the TV to the perfect viewing angle.
The further away from your TV you are, the more difficult it may be to read subtitles or see small details. However, if you are too close to a large screen, the details can disappear from the corner of your eye.
What's the best way to calculate the correct viewing distance? Measure the distance to where you are located in centimeters and divide this number by 2.5 for Full HD and 1.5 for Ultra HD. See the following calculation example:
Mounting your TV on the wall offers numerous advantages! You can be flexible in choosing its height. And if you want to watch TV from different places in the room, a full motion TV mount is a great solution.
