This is why it’s important to consider where you install your TV inside your bedroom

Will mounting it on the wall be a better idea than installing it on a shelf? Are there other ways and locations you can install your TV in?

These are only a few of the questions that can make you ponder whether your TV is where it should really be. And it can be a fun thing to do if you will just let your imagination and creativity do the job for you.[toc] 

Bedroom TV Wall

One of the most popular locations for a TV in the bedroom is on the wall. The TV becomes a big black box decor item and at the same time saves you space in your room.

Mounting the TV on your wall is an easy task but if you are not confident to do the job then you might as well hire someone to do it for you.

The key to mounting your TV is knowing the best installation location. You may find it more comfortable if the TV is directly parallel to your bed or if you want it a bit on the side. It all really depends on your preference. One thing’s sure, though, you don’t want that glare when you’re watching the TV so look out for that. 

Wall Mounted Bedroom TV Layouts

There are different locations in the bedroom wall where you can mount your TV. And yes, wall-mounting is actually a good idea since you can save space and at the same time use the TV to add aesthetics to the room. Here are different ways you can wall-mount your bedroom TV:

Directly Across From the Bed

A popular layout of the bedroom when there’s a TV is that it’s installed straight across from the bed. This straightforward layout offers a simple solution to viewing comfort. You have an unobstructed view of the TV when it’s directly straight ahead of your bed

In this room, the TV is directly wall-mounted in front of the bed, where it is clearly visible and the black box stands out from the tan-white cabinets surrounding it. The TV does not seem out of place though and it matches the color of the bed frame.

If you find it too direct and outrageous to place your TV straight across your bed, you can also consider it mounting on the wall beside the bed

In this room layout, it doesn’t give you the full brunt of the TV’s light but you also have a good view whenever you want it. This might be a good consideration if you want to watch the TV without tiring out your eyes too much.

Consider installing your TV perpendicular to the edge of the bed to create an even layout, whatever shape your room layout may have. Just make sure that the area across the edge of the bed is not the room’s door it’s a great consideration.

In this modern bedroom, the bed is right across from the door. The TV is then mounted on the wall across the edge of the bed and on top of the couch. This offers an unobstructed view without putting any hindrance on the entrance of the room

Mounting TV in Corner of Bedroom 

Another option to install your TV is in the corner of the bedroom. You can wall-mount the TV in a nook, but of course, it would depend on the shape of your floor plan.

In this room though, while the TV is installed on what appears to be a shelf and in the corner of the room, it is almost right across the bed. Since it’s near the balcony, it seems like you’re given the option of either watching the TV or watching something more amazing outside. 

On Top of the Fireplace

If you have a fireplace in your bedroom, do you know it’s a great partner for your TV? If you want your TV to be more than just its function and to actually add to the room’s aesthetic, pairing it with a fireplace is a great choice.

Depending on the type of fireplace you have, you must consider how high you will need to mount your TV and if it’s even possible.

An electric fireplace looks great with a flat-screen TV and both look completely high-tech yet elegant in this design

Adjustable TV Wall Mount 

If you choose to wall-mount your TV, make sure that it’s adjustable. It will serve you well later when you decide to redecorate or change your bed. If your room has a seating nook, it will also be a good option since you can adjust it based on where you are viewing the TV and on what height is comfortable for you. 

TV on Dresser in Bedroom 

Besides mounting the TV on the wall, you can also consider installing it on top of your dresser. If you don’t have anything on it and it’s just taking up space, make use of its surface by placing your TV on top of it. Of course, this will only work if your dresser can accommodate the size of your TV

In this room set up, placing the TV on top of the dresser is a great idea because both the TV and the dresser seem to be of the same size. 

Hidden Bedroom TV

One of the most innovative ways to install your TV is by transforming it into a hidden bedroom TV. And there are multiple ways you can accomplish this. Here are some of the ideas to hide your TV:

• Hidden in cabinet or armoire

• Installed into a bed end unit (under the bed with a motorized arm)

• Concealed behind sliding panels

• Hidden using simple curtains

• Incorporated in a built-in furniture

• Mix in with your wall gallery in disguise

This is a classic example of a room with a built-in TV cabinet. The entire ensemble, though is hidden by the curtains on its sides. Even though it already has its own compartment, the curtains reinforce its hiding place. 

Best Bedroom TV Height 

Now that you have different options to choose from, another issue you would have to tackle is the TV height. How high should you mount the TV on your bedroom’s wall?

The answer depends on how big the TV is and the location of its installation. See bedroom tv wall mounting ideas here.

What’s sure, though, is that you will need to install it a bit higher than your line of sight since you will be watching the TV while lying on the bed. Some say the viewing angle must not be more than 30 degrees.
