Wall Mounting or TV Stands in the Office – Advantages & Disadvantages

Running a business is no easy task. It can be tough finding the right balance between form and function with all the essentials and necessities that the office requires for operations to go smoothly. In the workplace, one of the most common dilemmas is whether to mount the audiovisual equipment or make use of a TV stand. It is by no means a decision to be taken lightly as any unnecessary addition of expenditure can just as easily put a dent in the financial budget of a company. However, by knowing the advantages and disadvantages that they pose, the risk of making the incorrect selection is minimised.

 

Wall Mounting

A TV wall mount boasts several advantages but perhaps the first benefit that easily stands out is its ability to save space. Most television sets today are generally manufactured to be as thin as possible, and by securing them properly on a wall it can save a lot of space that using a stand or a table would normally need. With its minimal and understated approach in functionality, another advantage is that it yields a sleek and modern design. It serves as a good balance between style and substance, and it comes as no surprise why it has become popular.

But with all of the benefits that it gives, it does come with its fair share of downsides. For one thing, it can be a little tedious to set everything up. As easy as it is to mount the audiovisual equipment, it may take just a little more effort and time than it would for a regular stand. There is also a certain science in placement and if done incorrectly it can be difficult to view the screen and redoing it can prove to be a pain. Mobility is also sacrificed with this approach.

 

TV Stands

For those who don’t mind something that may take up just a little more space in favour of the addition of mobility, TV stands can be another potentially viable option in the office. Most stands generally allow the user to move their respective audiovisual equipment from one place to another with minimal effort. Some may even have features that allow the vertical or even horizontal movement of the device. With these benefits alone, it’s easy to see why this approach can be appealing.

Not unlike wall mounting, TV stands also have disadvantages of their own. Floor space can become an issue, and while it isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker, it can be a little difficult to have in a smaller room or area. Storage can also be an issue if office space is limited and restricted.

Making a decision on whether to mount the audiovisual equipment on a wall or have it on a stand ultimately depends on the situation. If the office has limited space to work with, saving space can be done via wall mounting. But if it isn’t, you can benefit from a TV stand since it can be moved around easily.

  1. I totally agree that mounting your TV on the wall is a serious space-safer. But it’s not as easy as it may sounds. It’s not about broaching a few holes in the wall, hanging it and enjoying it. You need to be sure that the wall “can handle” it, you need to inspect the materials your wall is made off.
    Great post! Thanks for sharing it!
