Flat screen TVs are all the rage right now, the development in TV builds and design technology over the last few years has allowed slim TVs that are in some cases less than an inch wide. The minimal bezel means that many of our customers are seeking higher end TVs to achieve the neatest of finishes ‚Äì down to 1.5mm frame around the TV, ideal for the multi-screen set up.
Regardless of if the TV is a high end performance solution or a JB Hi-Fi spontaneous purchase, the mounting and installation can make a huge difference in its integration with your living environment. There are many options to consider when thinking about TV installation, including wall mount vs ceiling, cabling, and if the solution will need to be motorised.

If you are interested in getting assistance to mount the TV our consultant will take you through each of¬†following questions and more…
We have customers who install TVs into standard positions such as the living room, however now days there are many other options. Consider a TV in the bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom, outdoors, by the pool or spa, or in a home gym. Each option comes with its own considerations covered in more detail below.
While many TVs are wall mounted, there are also options now days where the TV can slide out from a wall concave, down from a ceiling nook, or up from the floor or bed end. For a very flash look, the TV can be installed recessed into the wall, so that the screen is flush with the wall surrounding the screen.
Mounting TVs brings its own range of challenges. Drilling the TV into brick or concrete will usually form the most secure surface for the TV mount. However the brackets can also be mounted to regular jip rock, with the right equipment. Beware of mounting heavy items to jip rock without the right equipment, as the surface is brittle and can break or loosen over time.
A TV which is mounted up high (for example in the corner of a room or above a fire place) may need to be angled down to the viewer for maximum viewing comfort. Similarly, a low TV may need to be angled up. Often a TV can be mounted on an adjustable bracket to allow it to be pulled in or out and angled depending on the requirements of the household and the space.
For most of us, TV time is a time to relax. Digital TV, movies such as DVDs, Blue-Rays, or digital downloads such as AppleTV or Pay TV such as Foxtel are all reasonably common requirements from the TV. However now days many of our customers are looking to connect the TV to the computer, and having¬†it double as an monitor. TVs can also be used to showcase family photographs at functions or as a screen saver. Speak to a consultant about the different options available for you, and we will ensure that the TV Installation¬†will meet with requirements.
Running cables from their source to the new usage location, is the main job of the TV installation consultant. If you have discussed all the above needs with your consultant they will be able to assess the cable work required based on needed inputs for the new TV.
Sometimes additional cables may need to be run, depending on if these are data (e.g. internet), power or sound, there may be some costs associated with the new cable. While the cost of the cable may have a direct relation to the quality of the output, many cables are standard now and low cost solutions are being brought to the market. Speak to your consultant to find out what cables will be needed.
Cables can form quite unsightly additions to the new TV Installation. Our consultants will always assume cables need to be 100% invisible, unless you state otherwise.
While some rooms may be dedicated TV rooms, most areas will not always require a TV. The TV installation can be motorised so that a TV slides in from the cavity at the touch of a button. For example TVs can be installed to drop from the ceiling, to rise out of the foot of the bed, or to disappear into the floor.
If a TV is not on a motorised lift, it can also be disguised as a mirror surface to blend with even the most demanding design decor.
TV brackets come in a variety of options and therefore range in prices, however a typical TV bracket costs include:
A TV installation can range from a simple wall mount to state of the art reveal techniques. Our consultants will do a site inspection and discuss with you your needs, before making final recommendations.
