One of the most exciting parts of moving into a new home is getting the chance to decorate. Though you’ll have to decide where everything will go as you carefully put each room together, there may be no bigger decision than where to put the television. TVs are often the focal point of the room they’re in, and they provide a lot of entertainment for a household — so it’s essential they’re placed in the perfect spot.
The expert mortgage professionals at Premium Mortgage Corporation are proud to have helped numerous clients in Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, NY, and Barre, VT, secure the funds needed to buy a home of their own. Once the mortgage loan is taken care of and the deal is closed, the fun of homeownership can truly begin.
The company’s mortgage brokers suggest using the following factors when trying to figure out the ideal TV placement:
- Viewing Distance: Viewing distance is important because having the TV either too close or too far away can put a lot of strain on your eyes. Make sure it’s somewhere that compliments the seating area you have arranged so nobody is uncomfortable while watching.
- Room Layout: The room layout will have a large impact on where you place the TV. Take a look at where the windows and doors are located to ensure you have enough space while avoiding a glare from the sunlight. Also, consider what the main purpose of the room will be, whether it’s a sitting room for conversation, bedroom for sleeping, kitchen for cooking, etc. This will determine how prominent you want the TV to be.
- Furniture & Décor: Regardless if your television will be the focal point of the room or not, you want it to fit seamlessly with your furniture and décor. Consider integrating it into your interior design by placing it within a frame on the wall, in a bookcase, or surrounded by artwork.
- Hiding Places: There is also the option to hide the TV if you would rather not have it out in the open all the time. Some people have chosen cabinets, armoires, and sliding doors to hide their TVs, while others have used the method of mounting it into a recessed wall with something hung in front to cover it.
Positioning your TV can be one of the most challenging decorating tasks in a home, but these tips will help make it easier.
