Smaller TVs can usually be mounted with a few screws placed in the proper areas of the wall, without having to worry about the television falling down over time.

If your home is constructed using bricks or cinder blocks and you are planning to mount the television to one of the exterior lining walls, you are going to want to make sure that you use heavy duty mounting bolts to secure the television properly.

Question #3: What Style LCD Mounting Bracket Do You Prefer? You have three main types of mounting brackets to choose from. Articulating wall arms extend the television out from the wall where drop down ceiling arms will hang the television from the ceiling. Flat mounted wall brackets put the television flat against the wall, making it appear as a picture frame.

Question #4: Do You Want To Hide The Cables In The Wall? If you are going to want to hide the cables inside of the wall you will need to take the precautions and cut the holes before you start mounting the television. It is much harder to run the wires through the wall after the television has already been mounted.
