Where to Put Your TV

Greg Best of KCI Homes began his home-building journey with the goal of making midsize market homes that offer many of the same comforts that would ordinarily only be found in higher-priced houses. Since 2002 he has been pursuing this dream and has succeeded in consistently delivering excellent homes that surpass expectations.

When moving into a home, or even just rearranging the home, it can be hard to know where the perfect spot is to put the TV. Should it be hung, sit on a dresser, go in the corner, or go above the fireplace? These are all the thoughts that often pass through our minds when we are looking at a torn apart room trying to figure out what is the best way for the couch to go with the TV. When looking at a room and planning on how you’d like things to look, it’s important that you take a few things into consideration.

Eye Level

You’ll want to take a seat on your couch and get a good gauge of where your eye level turns out to be. This is the level that you’ll want to make sure to put your TV. Knowing the level you want to put it at, it is then good to look around the room and see what best suits this level while factoring in the type of couch you have.


While you’re scoping out the walls, take into consideration where the windows sit. They can have a poor visual effect on the screen if they cause a reflection. As you sit and watch the sunset in the evening, when you’ll be most likely to watch, note the walls that the TV should not be stationed on because of the light seeping in. There are always blinds and curtains that can be put up if you want the TV to go on a wall that the window happens to shine on. However, it is hard to keep the light 100% out.

TV Dimensions

The TV itself can take up a lot of room depending on how big it is. Your choice of walls may be limited by the size of the TV you have. Considering the type of TV you have as well will help you decide how it should be positioned. There are some types that can be positioned at an angle, while others more so straight on. Doing a bit of research on how your TV should be viewed is advantageous.

Your Tastes

When it comes down to it though, how you’d like to place your TV is up to you. There is no right or wrong way. The layouts of a home can be difficult and tricky, especially in small places or in places where there seems to only be one place to put the TV. There is always a way, though, to have a marvelous living room with your TV in the most ideal spot.
