TV: at what height?

The ritual of watching television programs is important in our lives. Television is education, sport and entertainment. Convenience when watching TV allows us to receive positive emotions and protect our health. In all of this plays an important role as fixed TV. At what height, attitude to the light source, the location of the seats, you should try to take into account in advance.

When placing the TV, it is desirable to have a finished interior, so you can ideally determine at what height to hang the TV. The generally accepted height is defined as 1 meter from the floor level. However, a comfortable location largely depends on the viewing position and body position (sitting, lying). Physiologically convenient positioning of the head is not straight ahead, but slightly tilted to the bottom. So the muscles of the neck and head are the most relaxed.

The sizes of TV screens are so diverse, so the choice of the optimal height requires an individual approach.To complete the process of installing the TV, you will need an assistant and an overall TV layout (can be made from a sheet of cardboard). Spend 10 minutes of time, and you will know exactly at what height to hang the TV is best for you.

Take a comfortable position for viewing while sitting. The assistant must position the layout on the wall so that you can look comfortably in the middle. The main thing is not to change the viewing angle with the muscles, but to change it by moving the layout. After selecting the optimal location, fix the point on the wall. After a short break, repeat the procedure. To allow for watching TV from a recumbent position, move the resulting point 10 centimeters down. The result of the experiment will help you to know at what height to hang the TV, so that the viewing was comfortable.

Placing the TV on the wall, remember the recommendations of the manufacturers. The material and construction of the wall must ensure that the weight of the TV is held. To the rear of the TV should be air access. Reliable ventilation ensures durability. Hang the heavy product only together, and the tension of the power cable should be free.
