How Much TV is Too Much for a Room?

Believe it or not, it is possible to buy a TV that’s just too large for a space. While some may believe that bigger is always better, most people understand that there are limits.

How much TV is too much for a room?

There is a direct correlation between your screen size and how far away your seating is located. Some entertainment experts say that a viewing angle of 40 degrees creates the best viewing experience. An easy way to determine the screen size is to multiply the seating distance by .84 to get the recommended screen size.

So, if you sit around 8 feet from your TV, your screen size would be around 80 inches diagonal for that distance. That translates to approximately a 50-inch TV. An online consumer site, CNET, recommended no closer than 1.5 times the screen diagonal (or .667 times your seating distance), which allows for a larger screen.

In addition to distance from the screen, the experts also looked at resolution and how much space the TV takes up in the room. If you’re sitting too close to a large TV, you may start seeing pixels. Some of the larger TVs were created to enhance the viewing experience from a distance. If you have smaller rooms, you may need to review some smaller TV screen options.

Most people don’t want to have a gigantic television become the primary focal point in a space. While they enjoy the viewing options of a large, high resolution, flat screen TV, they really don’t want that to be what people remember about a space. One option for them is to consider a TV Lift Cabinet that hides the television from view when not in use, and all people see is a beautiful hand-crafted cabinet when they enter a space. The television is accessible at the touch of a button. The company has cabinets that hold virtually any size television.

The options are endless. Ultimately it’s up to each homeowner to decide what’s more important in a space – and how they live their lives.

How to Measure TV Size for Cabinet

Did you know a 75-inch television isn’t really 75 inches wide? The size is really the diagonal screen measurement from the top left corner of the screen to the bottom right corner of the screen.

So – how do you measure your TV properly if you want to place it in a cabinet?

First, get out your tape measurer.  You need to measure the horizontal width, vertical height and depth from edge to edge, including the frame around the screen.

Start with the depth.  Measure from the front to the back – but don’t include any stand it may be on.

Then, move on to the width. Measure horizontally from the outer edges (left to right)

Finally, measure vertically, from top to bottom (always including the frame)

Where to Put the TV When You Have a Fireplace?

Mounting a TV over the fireplace is very popular in the United States, but it’s not always in the best interest of the electronics. Let’s face it, heat plus electronics is usually a bad idea. Most electronics are adverse to heat – and smoke is often worse (two elements usually found near fireplaces). The same film you find on your inside windows after burning wood in a fireplace also ends up inside any electronics nearby. You may not be able to see it, but it’s there because you can smell it. And as they build up, they can wreak havoc on the sensitive elements inside your flatscreen television.

Most electronic devices simply operate best and most reliably at lower temperatures. Beyond that, excessive heat can cause temperature-sensitive materials to degrade quickly, and conductive materials can even sprout little metal whiskers, causing shorts within the TVs circuitry.

Another concern we hear is that a TV positioned over a fireplace is at an uncomfortable viewing angle. Many TVs mounted over the fireplace will be above eye level when people are seated. Craning your neck into an unnatural position for an extended period of time is going to cause temporary discomfort, but doing so for even short periods of time, day after day, can have lasting effects, like chronic headaches.

One way to protect your TV and still enjoy your fireplace is to consider a TV Lift Cabinet. Many units are finished on all four sides, so you can place them anywhere in a room with a fireplace. Some people use the cabinets as room dividers; others place the units in the corner of a room. The televisions are protected from heat sources and always at the perfect height for people to view entertainment. And, when the televisions aren’t in use, they are safely stored within the cabinet to keep all the electronics safe from particulate sources.
