Congratulations on your new apartment, condo unit, house, or whatever it is you call your home! It’s challenging to design your space and move things around, but we’re here to help! We’re Teko.ph, the largest aircon, appliance, and computer services provider in the Philippines, with a quick guide on using TV wall brackets.
Why You Need A TV Wall Bracket
New homeowners surely know the value of every space. Real estate properties cost so much fortune, that’s why you need to make the most out of every corner, tabletop, or storage space.
With TV wall brackets, you can also have better viewing angles. You can mount your TV in the living room and just adjust it using a moving mount to watch if you’re in the dining area. When seating on the floor or sofa, you can also avoid neck strain by adjusting the TV’s angle.

How to Choose TV Wall Brackets
As you decide to mount your TV, be sure that it is compatible with the TV wall bracket that you’re buying. You can find one in appliance stores, but make sure to take note of the following:
Compatibility: Can the TV mount carry the weight of your TV? Is it the right size? Does its VESA mounting pattern (standard distance between the mounting holes at the back of the TV) match your TV?
Bracket type: Decide whether you’re going with a fixed bracket or a tilting bracket. If you want to watch from any angle or height, go for a full-motion TV bracket.
TV placement: Have you decided where to mount the TV? Ideal locations are on a flat wall, at the center of your living room, in a corner, or just right in front of your center table.

Go for Professional Mounting for Your Safety
DIY TV mounting isn’t like assembling a chair or a side table. If you have enough skills and experience in mounting a flat screen TV, you can do it as soon as you’ve decided on the right tv wall brackets and other important factors mentioned above.
However, we highly recommend hiring an experienced technician to do the installation. It’s given—they can ensure that your TV is mounted correctly and safely. They can inspect your wall, bracket, and TV first, and can also recommend the best location for mounting the TV.
You can save so much time and effort rather than doing the installation yourself. Most importantly, a technician can make sure your TV is stable, level, and tightly mounted for everyone’s safety.
