Matching The Right TV for Your Space: Things to Look Out For


The era of buying “just” any TV is gone. Nowadays, a TV is not just about showing pictures and entertaining the household. It is all about decoration, minimalism, the mounting, the projection, and the sound.

Buying a new TV can be a difficult experience if you don’t know what to look for. All the specs and acronyms can get overwhelming and, without someone right there beside you when you’re shopping, you might be worried that salespeople don’t have your best interest at heart.

Here are the things you should consider:

The space where the TV is to be placed

Do you have a TV Space in your room? How large or small is it? You do not want to buy a TV only to return it because the space is too small or too big for it to fit. Measure the space and determine the size of the screen that you need. Calculating your TV size is less complicated than you might think. A TV’s size refers to its diagonal length, which comes from measuring from the upper left-hand corner of the actual TV screen to the lower right-hand corner. Most are expressed in inches.

The size of the TV

TVs come in various sizes, but experts recommend selecting the largest size your budget allows. If you are considering getting a TV that’s 75 inches or more, there’s something you should know. According to Samsung Internal Research, a major reason for purchasing new TVs is the demand for bigger screens. And that even after purchase, satisfaction remains very high. So, has there been a particular screen size that’s been on your mind? Then, now’s the time to go big and never look back.

The viewing distances

TVs are marketed based on the diagonal measurement of the screen. When measuring a TV for your space, always take into account the bezel and stand or mount. Divide your viewing distance by two to get an ideal screen size for your space. The best and most immersive viewing experience is when 40 degrees of your field of view is taken up by the screen. This field of view distance can be calculated by just knowing the size of your TV. To get this suitable distance, multiply the screen size by 1.2. So for a 75-inch TV, that means sitting 90 inches, or 2.3 meters away.

The brand

There are so many TV brands in the market. Do not go for any brand. Go for known brands such as Samsung. These known brands give you a sense of ownership and prestige and also assure you of warranties and having your product for long.

The resolutions

The general rule of thumb is that as the screen size increases, so should the total pixel count or resolution. The better the resolution, the more you see the image instead of the pixels. This is why when you buy a big-screen TV it is highly recommended to go with a high-resolution picture quality like 4K.
