How high should a TV be mounted?

Welcome to the world of TV mounting, where the right height can make all the difference in your viewing experience. Whether you're setting up a new entertainment space or looking to upgrade your existing setup, finding the optimal TV mount height is crucial. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the steps to determine the perfect height for your TV mount, ensuring a comfortable and immersive viewing experience every time.

Understanding Eye Level

The first key consideration when determining TV mount height is eye level. The goal is to position the TV at eye level when you're seated comfortably on your couch or chair. Measure the height from the floor to your eyes when sitting down – this is the baseline for the ideal TV height. Condomounts' indoor wall and pillar TV mounts are designed to provide a solution that caters to different eye levels, offering flexibility for a personalized setup.

Choosing the Right Room and Wall

The room's layout and the type of wall you're working with also play a significant role in determining TV mount height. Condomounts' Elephant Anchors are specially crafted for various wall types, including drywall, concrete, and brick. If you're working with drywall, stay tuned for specific tips later in this guide.

Considering Viewing Angles

Another factor to keep in mind is the viewing angle. The TV should be positioned so that it's directly in front of your seating area, minimizing neck strain. Condomounts' pillar TV mounts come with ratchets and straps, allowing you to secure the TV at the perfect angle, whether it's in a corner or against a flat wall.

Measuring Screen Size

The size of your TV also influences the optimal mounting height. As a general rule of thumb, the center of the screen should align with your eye level. Condomounts offers a range of mounts suitable for various screen sizes, ensuring a seamless fit for your entertainment needs.

Installation Tips for Different Spaces

Now, let's dive into specific installation tips for different spaces. Condomounts' indoor wall and pillar TV mounts offer versatile solutions for a range of environments.

For Living Rooms:

  • Consider a central wall location for a balanced look.
  • If mounting above a fireplace, ensure the TV is not too high, maintaining comfortable viewing.

For Bedrooms:

  • Opt for a wall opposite the bed for easy viewing.
  • Adjust the height based on your eye level when sitting on the bed.

For Outdoor Spaces:

  • Explore Condomounts' Zebozap series for outdoor-rated pillar TV mounts.
  • Ensure the mounts are weather-resistant and easy to install and uninstall.

Drywall TV Mount Tips

If you're working with drywall, follow these tips for a secure and successful installation with Condomounts' Elephant Anchors:

  1. Locate Studs: Use a stud finder to locate the studs behind the drywall. Elephant Anchors are designed for both stud and studless drywall, providing a secure hold.

  2. Distribute Weight: If your TV is heavy, distribute the weight across multiple studs for added stability.

  3. Use Appropriate Tools: Follow Condomounts' installation guidelines and use the provided nuts, bolts, screws, and drill bits for a precise and secure mounting.

  4. Check for Level: Ensure the TV mount is level during installation to guarantee a straight and visually appealing setup.


In conclusion, determining the perfect TV mount height is a blend of science and personal preference. Condomounts' range of indoor wall and pillar mounts, along with the Elephant Anchors, offer versatile solutions for different spaces and wall types. By considering factors like eye level, room layout, viewing angles, and screen size, you can create a customized setup that enhances your home entertainment experience. Happy mounting!
