4 Types of TV Ceiling Mounts for your Home

Last update: 28 October, 2018

TV ceiling mounts are becoming increasingly popular in homes all around the world.

This type of stand is normally found in bars, restaurants or other such places. However, over the last few years, many landlords and homeowners have decided to buy these ceiling mounts as a way to save space.

While our homes are getting smaller, our TVs are getting bigger and bigger, so we need to find a way to optimize our space, without missing out on the latest technology.

For many people, TV ceiling mounts are a complete mystery. So in today’s article, we’re going to talk about their advantages, as well as the different types you can find on the market today. Finally, we’ll give you some things to keep in mind before you buy. 

The advantages of TV ceiling mounts

As we’ve already mentioned, the main objective of using this type of stand is to save space. That is their main goal, but it is not their only one.

Firstly, TV ceiling mounts are safer than more conventional stands. As both the TV and the stand are high up out of the way they’re no longer an obstacle.

Secondly, the height of the ceiling is not important when it comes to this type of TV mount. You can buy an adapter to adjust the height, and position it where you like. Some mounts are already extendable and don’t need an adapter.

Another advantage of these stands is that you don’t need to worry about all the cables being visible and hanging down the back of your TV.  The majority of them have a built-in compartment to hide the cables.

What’s more, these TV mounts are super modern, and will bring a touch of sophistication to your living room or bedroom. No one will expect your TV to be on the ceiling.

Finally, the majority of TV stands rotate, so you can turn them to face whatever direction you want.

This is a great feature if your TV is in your bedroom and you want to be able to watch it when you’re lying in bed.

As you can see, TV ceiling mounts offer a whole range of interesting advantages if you’re looking for a space saving alternative, but don’t want to sacrifice your widescreen TV.

We should also point out that the price of this type of TV mount will vary according to how much weight they can carry. Generally – although it will also depend on the brand – they won’t cost more than about $350.

Recommendations

Buying a TV ceiling mount is a fairly simple process. However, the following things are worth keeping in mind to make sure you don’t run into any issues.

There are new TV models on the market almost every day. They are getting bigger and bigger, and come with more and more features. Plus, a good TV is a luxury item, so they aren’t cheap.

So, our first recommendation is about quality. We don’t mean you should buy an expensive TV mount; a hefty price tag doesn’t always mean good quality.

What we are saying is that you should check the quality of the material, and do research on the different brands. TV stands need to support a considerable amount of weight, so they need to be strong and durable.

You might also want to consider investing in a Vesa television mount. These wall mounts are designed so that they fit every television size.

Finally, you’re hanging a significant amount of weight from your ceiling, so make sure you don’t attach your TV mount to a surface that isn’t entirely secure, like plaster.

That’s why it’s best to attach your TV mount to the ceiling itself or to a beam.

Types of TV ceiling mount 

On today’s market, there are 4 main types of ceiling mount. They are all motorized, which means they can be operated remotely or manually.

These types range from simple and straight-forward, to modern.

  • Dual: this type of ceiling mount can hold two television sets. They are mainly intended for places like restaurants and bars.
  • Extendable: these ensure that the height of the ceiling is not an issue, as they allow you to alter the height. This can be done manually or remotely.
  • Rotating: rotating TV ceiling mounts allow you to turn your TV 360º. They are great if you if you want to watch your TV from anywhere in the room.
  • Folding: this type of TV mount is modern and discreet. When you’re not using your TV, you can simply fold it away, and when you return, all you need to do is unfold it again. They are very practical and aesthetically pleasing. And they are motorized, which means you can fold and unfold them with a remote control.

Conclusion

The surge in popularity of TV ceiling mounts has sprung from the need to save space in our homes.

This type of TV mount offers so many advantages, from their modern look to their added safety. What’s more, all of them can be inclined to avoid glare on your screen.

It goes without saying that the best types are those that can adapt to our different needs and tastes.
