We provide many options for hiding wires after your TV wall mount installation to achieve a neat, clean appearance. Included in your service are neatly dressed wires, but cord masking and in-wall cord concealment services are offered for an additional cost. With an external cord masking option, your TV and component wires are enclosed in a discrete plastic channel that runs along the wall’s surface. If your home has drywall over stud construction, we provide in-wall cord concealment services using a power bridge. For this method, wires are hidden behind the wall, pulled out through an opening placed lower towards the floor, and then plugged into a nearby outlet.

As a rule, the center of a 42” TV should be mounted about 56 inches from the floor, a 55” TV around 61 inches, a 65” TV around 65 inches, and a 70” TV around 67 inches. But the exact mounting height will vary depending on your eye level, which will vary depending on the height of your seats, couch, or bed. Per the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, you’ll want the TV to be mounted for a viewing angle of not more than 30 degrees. Most people casually sit between 10 to 15 degrees reclined.
Full-motion (aka articulating) mounts offer the most versatility. They can extend from the wall, swivel side to side, tilt up and down, and even rotate. However, if you want your TV to be flush with the wall, then you should choose a low-profile (aka flat or fixed) or tilting mount.
