Is Your TV Mounted?

Mounted high on walls and above fireplaces, today's TVs are treated like art. Despite the fact that I think that trying to disguise a flatscreen as decoration is fantastic, mine remain perched atop clunky stands and inside media cabinets. See, my husband fears that a mounted TV will surely plummet to its death on the floor. He simply can't be convinced that the aesthetics of hanging a boob tube on the wall outweighs the slim possibility that it could fall — even if we have a professional come in and do it extremely securely. I'm sure it does happen, but I've yet to meet someone whose TV has come crashing down. So I'm curious (and maybe a little jealous), is your TV mounted on the wall?

My boyfriend's is and he did it himself and I am still amazed months later that it is still on the wall! lol

Nope. Earthquake country so am leery of putting things up--anywhere. ;p

Yes -- we live in a very narrow rowhouse, so there is physically no room for a TV unless it's flatscreen and mounted. Or so we told ourselves when we bought the tv :P

I don't have a TV, but if I did it would be hidden, either behind a moveable picture, inside an armoire, or something. I don't like the way televisions tend to dominate a room.

No, I like to be able to close the armoire that the tv is in and not see it.

I have the same fears as your husband I have to say

If I had a flat screen it would be mounted, then hid behind a moveable picture or something. The only tv I have is hid in a cabinet-it is not hooked up to anything but the dvd player. My place is far enough out that there is no cable AND the only channel that comes in is not clear enough to see. I have not had commercial tv since Papa Bush ran for President. That was enough for me---out!!!!

Sadly I still have a tube tv, so it might be a little hard to get that thing mounted up on the way ;)

No, but I wish it was. I even bought the bracket!
