Some people question if it is worth installing flat screen TVs on the wall. The fact that it is not possible to move the TV from where it was originally set up and the difficulties of installation usually make people give up on the idea. However, with a little bit of planning and research, mounting your TV on the wall can be an easy task.
Most of the latest TV models are suitable to be wall mounted. It does not matter how big or heavy they are. If the TV is featured with a VESA mounting pattern, it means it has been designed to be mounted. VESA is a set of pre-drilled holes on the back of the TV, allowing you to hang it from a mount, regardless if it is mounted to the wall, spring arm, or stand from the floor.
This will depend on the TV wall mount you will use. There are many different models of mounts in the marketplace nowadays. They come with different features, shapes & forms, and obviously prices.

TVs are heavy and bulky, and that might make people wonder if it is safe to keep them mounted on the wall. There are three main components to make this happen: The TV, the mounting bracket and the wall. If all three are rated to take the TV weight and the installation is done properly there is nothing to worry about.
If you need help with the TV wall mount installation, you can also hire a professional to do it for you, but as explained before, with some planning and preparation it is not difficult to get the job done.
