Ok, So I have been wrestling with this issue for some time now... Building a new house and the living room has a half wall. that is the wall the TV must go on, all of the LV wiring is already done so its not an option to move it. 


I am going for a clean modern look so no TV stand... So how to mount the TV? 


I have thought of flipping a ceiling mount upside down... or flipping the rails on a standard wall mount. But I don't know how well either of those options would work. So I am looking for suggestions and ideas on how to best accomplish attaching the TV to this darn half wall...


Here are a couple of pictures of the half wall so you can get an idea of what I am talking about....


Wall is 42" tall, TV is currently a 42" TV but will be upgraded to a 60" model soon. In wall speakers will be installed on the half wall as well...



(OK so this thread wont let me attach the pictures... here is a link to them I have posted on another forum)







Thanks SO much in advance for all the help and advise... I have been struggling with this one for months now!

Thanks for the suggestions. The first one is basically a TV stand which I don't want... I want a clean look, no clutter on the floor below and no need for shelves. Everything will be contained in a rack. Im not sure what the second item is exactly... How does that work?


If anyone is good at engineering I am open to building something to make it work too, just not exactly sure how to execute it...
