Moving Tips: Where to put your television

Finding the right spot to put your television is important.

Finding the right spot to put your television is important.

Getting all of your items in the right places after your moving company delivers them can be a tricky process. Your living room, where you will spend much of your time and host most of your guests, is no different. The television will likely be the focus of the room, so you need to know exactly what to do with it.

Putting your television in the right place is important, and it takes some thought. There are many ways to do this, but it depends on the television type as well as other factors. You will want to decide if you need to get another television that is bigger than your current option, depending on the room. Bigger rooms may need a larger television, as otherwise you will need to make the room smaller by pulling the couches toward the set to compensate, which may not be the way you want your room to look to visitors.

Plan out your living room setup

If you have a large enough television, you will want to decide where exactly to put it. Don't feel that your living room has to be set up a specific way. There are many things you can do to make it your own. Creativity is key. Drawing out options on paper or moving items around can get the setup that fits your lifestyle. However, you may want to wait for the day after everything is moved in to arrange everything, as packing and moving may have made you pretty tired.

If the television isn't a flat screen, you will need a stand of some sort if you didn't have that already from your old home. Even if it is a flat screen option, you will be able to have the choice of a stand or not. However, if you want, you could attach the flat screen to the wall, which may be the best way to give your living room the feeling there is more space.

While you may still want the room to focus on the television, consider adding other items to the walls such as plants or other decorative items. This could help fill the room, as well as add symmetry so that it is easier to focus on the television while relaxing or hosting friends in the room.
