Wall Mounted vs On A Stand: TV Display Options

Where to place the tv is one of the biggest hurdles to jump over when decorating a room. Not only do you have to take cable hookups into consideration, you also have to be very aware of height. No one wants to pull a muscle in their neck trying to watch tv in your home.

Here are a few tv mounting options and tips from the Apartment Therapy House Tour archives:
