Choosing the Best TV Wall Bracket

The first thing to decide is where you want to mount your TV. If it is going to be at eye level and right in front of where you always sit then a flat bracket will be fine, these keep your TV very close to the wall giving that “picture frame” look. Do bear in mind there isn’t room behind them to put your cables from the TV so they will either have to be hidden in the wall or you can purchase cable covers that simply fit over the cable in black, silver or some that can be painted.

The   tilt  bracket is ideal when the TV is to be placed above eye level, in the bedroom for example or over a mantlepiece. Most  tilt  brackets will  tilt  up to 15 degrees. The majority of  tilt  TV Wall Brackets will sit your TV approximately three inches from the wall so do not sit as flush as the flat mounts but this does allow more room behind the mounts for cables etc. The  tilt  has to sit further from the wall to allow it to offer the  tilt  facility.

The  tilt  & twist and arm brackets are ideal if you need to move the TV to face different seating positions. These offer full movement and are best suited to alcoves and corners. All of these brackets will pull out into the room and every bracket we sell will tell you all of the measurements of the movement to help you choose the best option for you. All of these brackets will also fold back against the wall but bear in mind due to the arm on them they will not fold back as close to the wall as the flat and  tilt  models, again, the size of each bracket when flat will be shown in the description. Most arm brackets will sit approximately six inches from the wall when flat.

Many arm and twist brackets will have a built in system for hiding your cables along the arm. Arm brackets are also known as corner brackets as they are perfect when mounting your TV in the corner of the room allowing you to move them out into the room for viewing and then folding them back when not in use.

I hope that helps you to decide which option is best for you and remember we are always here to help.
