...and I’ve never had reason to wall mount a TV before. It can’t be that hard, right? Or will I be cursing my wretched existence by the end of the process?
I mean, if you can’t curse during it, what’s the point?I’ve wall mounted three TVs. None were that bad (although I can‘t say there was no cursing involved). Needed help with the 77” one to get it on the rack because that one was heavy. I only hid the cables in the wall for one. That added another layer of complexity, but we had the wall open for another project so I figured why not.
I dunno... If you're only planning to be there for another year why wall mount a TV considering you'll need to repair the wall prior to vacating the space. That said, I have several wall-mounted TV's in my home but I also have no plans of selling anytime soon.I mean, if you can’t curse during it, what’s the point?
I’m not looking for pretty (fortunately). Only going to be in this new space for about a year but mounting the TV solves so many problems with making the room work.
That last key bit makes all the difference! You can also think of this wall mounting experience as a dress rehearsal for when you may want to do a similar project for a longer term. Good luck with your wall mounting project, Josh!In this case, the wall mounting is the lesser of two evils. It’s the only way to make everything fit in an odd shaped room without buying new furniture. And let’s just say the landlord has no objection and no expectation of it being repaired on my way out.
