Mounting TVs is an overrated trend

I prefer to have a normal TV on its built-in legs/stand. My biggest issue with mounted TVs is people put them too high. . TVs should be eye level and not strain your neck. Another issue with mounting is it is difficult to do. Hiring a professional can be expensive, but doing it improperly and destroying your wall can be even worse, especially if you are renting. Finally, it requires a lot more cable management if anything but a streaming stick is plugged in. Unless you can hide cords and cables in the walls, they look ugly hanging there.

The only time it makes sense to mount a TV is in unconventional spaces . If there is a media center or TV stand against the wall, the TV should be on it, not hanging above it with cords dangling.
