How high should you mount your flat screen in Singapore This is a question we get a lot of times and if you ask 10 people at what height should a flat screen be mounted; you will probably get 10 different answers. More people are discovering the advantages of mounting Tv screens over the traditional stand styles. However, determining the height at which the Tv Screen should be mounted is a trick. The last thing you want is to squirm or strain while watching your favorite show. The truth is, height determination all comes down to a combination of preference and trial and error.

Know the size of your Tv

In order to know the position or the height at which to mount your Tv screen, you need to know the size your Tv screen, the viewing distance from the Tv, the eye level height from the floor and the reclining sitting angle. All these are important to determine the height of your mount.

The size of the Tv

This is the viewing area of the Tv. Knowing the size of the TV will help you determine at what height the mount will be. One important consideration to make while mounting the Tv is knowing that you are not judging from the top or the bottom, but floor to the center of the TV. Lastly, your Tv size is going to represent a diagonal view area and therefore, this calls for accuracy and precision while measuring how far up and over the exact center of the screen is.

Eye Level

The eye level is calculated while sitting from the position you will be viewing your Tv from. But that’ s not to say that the eye level will be constant at all times. You will find that different viewers will have different heights, the height of the seat cushion, the distance from the seat and the height of the Tv are all significant factors to consider while determining the appropriate mounting height of the Tv. As a rule;

  • A 42” television should be mounted about 56 inches from the floor to Tv center.
  • A 55” should be mounted about 61 inches.
  • A 65” Tv should be mounted around 65 inches, floor to the center.
  • A 70” Tv should be mounted about 67 inches to the center of the screen.

Viewing distance

As mentioned earlier, it plays a significant role in determining how high the mount should be. Let’s get technical, the viewing distance is the distance from where you are viewing the Tv from, to the wall where the Tv is mounted and is calculated using the formula; VD=TVS*1.67 where TVS is the TV size. However, you do not need to know all that. For a quick reference, a 42” Tv should be mounted about 70-75 inches away. A 55” Tv should be mounted 90-100 inches away.
