Finding a TV Bracket with Shelves that Suits Your Viewing Habits

The lightweight nature of flat-screen TVs makes them easy to mount on the wall, but most of them will require separate hardware. A TV wall bracket with shelves provides storage space that can accommodate a game console, DVD player, and TV set-top box. These mounting solutions can be easily found on eBay.

Which wall mounting options can you choose from?

TV wall brackets are designed to suit different viewing requirements. Besides holding the TV up, a TV mount with shelf is built for positioning. A TV has to be placed at the right angle so that viewers don’t have to strain. The mounting systems available include:

  • Tilt mount – The bracket is structured to adjust vertically to lower the TV to eye level and is suitable for TVs that have to be placed high on the wall.
  • Fixed mount – With this installation, the TV is parallel to the wall and cannot be adjusted in any direction. A fixed TV wall bracket with shelves is good when viewers will be directly in front of the TV.
  • Mantle mount – Suitable for TVs that have to be positioned above a fireplace. The bracket allows the TV to telescope out and down so that it sits over the mantle to avoid straining the neck.
  • Full motion mount – In large rooms that have multiple viewing spots, it is convenient to adjust the TV into various positions. This wall mount allows you to angle it from side to side, up or down.
  • Corner mount – This bracket is specially designed to hold up a TV in a corner.
How do you pick the right TV wall bracket with shelves?

The weight that a TV wall mount bracket with shelf can accommodate is the most crucial aspect when selecting hardware. Two brackets may be built for the same TV size, but one can have a bigger load capacity than the other. Consider the amount of flexibility that a wall mount offers and its VESA dimensions. A bracket should provide sufficient room for the different cables that have to run behind the TV.

What are VESA dimensions?

When getting TV wall brackets with shelves, VESA dimensions are part of the purchasing criteria. A VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) pattern is the standard pattern that was developed for television sets. VESA dimensions make it possible to match the size of the TV to an appropriate mount, meaning you only need the correct figure for your television unit.
