Short on space and don’t have room for a stand? Or simply prefer your television to be in a raised position rather than at eye level? Either way, if you’re going to attach your television to a wall, you'll need one of the best TV wall mounts.

Now, to be truthful with you, wall mounting your gogglebox feels a bit uncool at this point in time, unless it's a Samsung Frame. However, there is still plenty of demand for nailing tellies to walls, especially for business and hospitality purposes, and as a bedroom space-saver. 

So, just for you, here are the best TV wall mounts available. We advise getting professional help for this task. Do not attempt to mount one yourself until you've checked your walls and are feeling very confident. Otherwise, if your entire plasterboard wall immediately falls down and your TV explodes, don't come crying to us.

How to buy the best TV wall mount

Before you head on through to Amazon or PC World to find the best wall mount for you, there are a number things that you’ll need to consider so you can work out whether you require a fixed, tilting or articulating wall mount. 

To explain: a fixed wall mount is exactly that – you can’t move it – so you need to be sure that the place and the height that you position it is the best it can possibly be. A tilting wall mount will enable you to angle the TV up or down to optimise the viewing experience, whether it’s angling it so you can view it from the sofa, or positioning it so you can watch TV while you’re doing the ironing. Then there’s articulating TV mounts; these can tilt, swivel and pull out from the wall, giving you more freedom in how you position them.

Secondly, you’ll need to consider the size and weight of your television. For example, PC World are selling this Sanus LT25-B1 Tilt TV Bracket, which has the capacity to support televisions as large as 90 inches, while others may not be able as compatible with a television so large. Generally, wall mounts use the VESA screw system, so make sure your television is compatible with that before you go ahead and buy one. It very probably will be. 

Our list features a range of wall mounts from recognised retailers, including Amazon and PC World. Whether you’re looking for functionality at a minimum cost or a singing and dancing one which may cost that bit more, we’ll help you to find the best wall mount for your television so viewing your favourite show, or football team, is the best it can possibly be.
