What height should I mount my flatscreen?

One of the questions I often get is how to know where and how high to mount artwork and other items on the wall such as flatscreen televisions. Because of this, I’m going to be publishing some interior design tips in the form of infographics to help you! These infographics will have easy-to-use DIY tips and tricks for answering your questions and making your space look great. Have a question about something (or you want to see an infographic about something)? Leave us a comment and let us know!

This first one details how you should determine what height and where to mount your flatscreen television on the wall. There is a little bit of math required (and some measuring), but trust us when we say it’s worth it. There’s also some mention about why putting your flatscreen over the fireplace might not be the greatest idea. One thing I don’t mention that I will now is to make sure that your television is level. Especially if you’re like us and you like to put garland on it during the holiday season.

Of course, j. ellen Design LLC can help you organize and design your space (or re-design it) whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen, or even an office space. If you’re interested in our design services, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We would be happy to work with you on your interior design project — big or small.
