A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Putting up a TV on a Wall


Well we’ve all seen them, haven’t we, around at our sports-obsessed friends’ houses, those 200 inch LCD TVs that take up the entire wall and cost more than most of us make in a year.

Happily, with the cost of flat panel TV’s plummeting, most of us are now in a position to buy a suitably discreet 97” HD version so that we can better see the disappointment on the punters’ faces on Antiques Roadshow, when they’re told that their family heirloom is worth about a tenner. But it would have been fifty grand if the dog hadn't chewed it to bits the week before.

The great advantage of
wall-mounting a flat panel TV, is that it frees up the corner that was occupied by your gigantic old set, allowing you to take that horrid old wood effect TV cabinet into the garden and smash it to pieces. You can tell your wife that you thought a new TV on the wall would keep the channel buttons up and out of the way of your toddler's dirty little fingers. She'll buy into that.

Don’t worry, that corner won’t be empty for long, a trip to “Erking Great Sofas are Us” will get you a leather monstrosity the size of a rowing boat to squeeze in there.

This new electric toy cost a bit though and no husband can be trusted to fit that very complicated looking wall mounting bracket, with
his daft selection of screwdrivers and screws and that Christmas Black & Decker drill that's got all the power of an electric tooth brush.

So what do you do? That’s right – get a man in!

Now, a husband shouldn’t be completely cut out of the process – he can be sent off to Currys PC World or Maplins, to make sure you have the requisite scart, hdmi, composite, component and any other cable he can get his hands on and ATTATCH them BEFORE the builder arrives. You could get an AV specialist in, but you’ll pay for it.

As long as you have the right cables in the right holes, a builder will fix your bracket to the wall, where you want it, he will chase out for the cables, hang the TV and bond and plaster the wall, leaving the old man to whack a few licks of Farrow and Ball over the
plaster once it is dry.
