For many people, the TV takes pride of place in their living room but many modern TVs are now so large that finding a good way to display them can be tricky.
Hanging a TV directly from the wall is only convenient if you have a thin LCD, plasma, or LED television. Even if you do have a TV of this type, hanging it on the wall will immediately give the room it is in a certain ‘feel’. The room will feel less cozy and more minimalistic and in addition, it will only serve to make the TV the focal point of the room. A lot of people would prefer the TV to be a useful part of the living room rather than the dominating feature of it.
