  • This is interior design which is largely opinion-based, which unfortunately makes it not a good fit for this site: diy.stackexchange.com/tour. It depends as much on furniture type and placement as it does placement of the television. – statueuphemism Nov 6 '17 at 12:09

The way that I solved the "best viewing" dilemma was to purchase a flat screen TV console similar to this one:

enter image description here

The console came with a full tilt and swivel TV mount bracket that attaches to a post on the center back of the console. The TV in turn mounts to the bracket.

Placing the unit in a corner like shown below allows for a great variety of furniture arrangement and the swivel mechanism allows the TV to be rotated slightly to favor a certain viewing direction if needed.

The center shelf of the console works very well for placement of a sound bar and the lower shelf can accommodate video player and cable box if required.

Best things of all. No hacking of the walls and the console can be moved and easily adapted should you ever decide to step up to a larger sized screen.


I would go with #2 hung on the wall. I dont personally like tvs in a corner because you have wasted space behind the tv.
