Wall Mounts for Dummies

VESA is a universal family of standards for mounting flat panel screens (LCD, LED, plasma tv, anything goes as long as it’s flat). Distance between the screw holes behind your screen defines the standard that you will use. Measuring the correct VESA standard is easy but as TV wall mounts have become more and more popular you can find the suitable version pretty much wherever you have bought the TV from. Most wall mount brackets even support multiple sizes.

VESA standards

  • 75x75 mm
  • 100x100 mm
  • 100x200 mm
  • 200x200 mm
  • 400x200 mm
  • 400x400 mm
  • 600x400 mm
  • 800x400 mm

Why a Corner TV Mount?

When furnishing small spaces you have to often get creative. Positioning a TV in a corner is often overlooked purely because the vast majority of TV stands are designed to be used in line with the wall. Cramped areas such as the kitchen, guest bedroom or even your man cave might be perfect for positioning a TV in the corner, but we firmly believe that it is also a great option for living rooms with sectional sofas for instance.

In the photo above you can see a stylish yet comfy TV area, almost like a separate room within a room. Corner TV mounts open a door to tons of possibilities, get creative! For more inspiration see our Pinterest board about corner mounted TV’s.

Corner Mounting Tips

Generally speaking there are two possibilities when it comes to corner mounting: either a regular single bracket mount with a swivel for one wall or an actual corner TV mount with two brackets that are attached to both walls of a corner. Both work, but if you have decided to place your display on a corner then purchasing an actual corner TV mount is advisable as you don’t have to spend extra time with the measurements.

Mounting on a Concrete Wall

This one is easy. Necessary tools: a hammer drill, screws and wall plugs. Just decide on a desired spot and mark the drill spots with a pen. Recommended tools: a spirit level and a meter to make sure your mount goes straight.

  1. Drill a hole in the wall. Be sure to use a right sized drill bit to make sure the hole is properly fit for the wall plugs.
  2. Install the wall plugs.
  3. Fit the wall mount and install it.

Mounting on a Drywall

This one is a bit trickier because you have to locate the wall studs inside your wall as you will be mounting on them. Furthermore, you need to do your due diligence regarding the capacity of the wall in question. If you are uncertain it is advised to ask a professional.

Use a stud finder and knock on the wall to locate studs inside your wall. The sound goes from hollow to solid once you locate one. Most drywalls have 16 or 24 inches between the studs.
