If you have a television that you would like to place in the corner of a room, it is likely time to get a corner TV wall mount. Before you buy one, you will need to consider a few details to ensure that you choose the best one for your television. The first factor is size, as some TV wall mounts are only meant to hold small, light televisions, while others are fit to hold the heaviest on the market. You should also consider flexibility of the mount, as some allow you to adjust the viewing angle easily, while others are fixed. A cable management system is sometimes included; this is an attractive feature that can help you keep the room looking organized and neat, not cluttered with cords.

The first detail to consider before you buy is the amount of weight the TV wall mount can hold. Most are safe to hold a certain range of sizes, and mounting a television that exceeds the weight or width of the hardware can put both the TV and the wall in jeopardy. For this reason, it is important to pay attention to the weight and TV width requirements before mounting a television. Note that most TV wall mounts rated for smaller TVs only use a single-arm bracket, while those meant for larger televisions typically use dual-arm wall mount brackets.

Many TV wall mounts feature pivoting arms that allow you to angle the television set the way you want it. This means that just because a TV is mounted on the wall, it does not have to face the same area of the room permanently. A swiveling arm allows you to easily angle it so that you can view the screen from any spot in the room. Some mounts also slide a few feet from one side to another, allowing you even more viewing flexibility. If you think you will want the ability to see the screen from various areas in the room, it is important to find a corner TV wall mount that offers a lot of flexibility; a few are even motorized, allowing the TV be easily repositioned using a remote control.

It is often possible to find a corner TV wall mount that includes a cord management system. This kind of feature helps conceal the various cords that are usually needed for most televisions. If your reasoning for having a wall mount is to ensure that the setup looks clean and uncluttered, it is worth considering whether a corner TV wall mount with a cord management feature could be helpful.

@Feryll - Be sure to check the warranty on any corner TV wall mount you buy. You want a warranty that is good for several years, and one that covers the cost of replacing your TV if something goes wrong. Consider buying an extended warranty to be safe.

@Feryll - You can buy a good corner wall mount for about $50. You can also get them cheaper, but the mid prized ones are noticeably better put together than the really cheap ones. You can also go with the remote control ones like mentioned in this article, but for most people they aren't necessary.

How often do you need to adjust the TV when you are already in your chair and watching your program? It's not like you're adjusting the angle of the TV every time you change programs. If you adjust it manually before you sit down that's all you''re going to need. My TV is perfectly positioned for watching from my chair, and that is where it stays. I never touch it.

I am excited because it looks like I am finally going to get the big flat screen TV that I've been eyeing for a while now for the living room. We have had so many other expenses since we moved into our house that the TV had to be put on the back burner. I haven't decided for certain, but I am going to either but the TV over the fireplace or I am going to mount it in a corner. We still have to get the room painted and the new furnishing set up.

I have a couple of concerns about mounting the TV. First of all I want to make sure I get a wall mount that

is going to be strong enough to support the weight of the TV. After waiting this long to buy a TV, the last thing I want is for it to fall off of the wall and break because I didn't purchase the right mount. However, I don't want the most expensive one. I simply need it to be sturdy so it will support the TV.

Once I find a strong enough wall mount, I want to make sure it isn't so complicated to get set up that I can't do the job properly. Otherwise, I might still end up with a shattered 60" TV on the floor.
