How to find the best TV size for an apartment

The thing you will need:

Measuring Tape

  • In order to know what size TV for a living room that fits.
    • First, the optimal spot for the TV in your living room must be determined.
    • What will the TV be housed in or on in the room should be identified.
    • What’s the ideal location for the TV.
    • Decide whether the TV should be wall-mounted or on a stand before you measure the space of the location you have chosen.
    • Make sure the wall has studs to screw the mounting brackets into if the TV is to be wall-mounted.
      • Wall mounting a TV is ideal, it there is not a lot of space in the room for a stand.
      • The great thing about a stand is that the TV can easily be moved later on without any damage to the wall.
  • Imagine the TV in that space and how big it needs to be in relation to the viewing distance by sitting in the area where the TV will be viewed.
    • A smaller TV might need to be purchased if the viewing distance is very close, or simply less than 6 feet. Or on the other hand, a much larger TV may be preferable if the viewing distance is very far, more than 15 feet.

Getting the Measurements Right

    • Is it aesthetic, the TV should not be closer than six inches to any door, edge or adjacent wall.
    • Make sure that art and décor have their ample space, this is an interior design principle that should be used.
    • The TV must complement the existing décor, and should not distract from the rest of the room.
