Do Curved TVs Need Special Mount?

So you bought a fancy new curved TV and you’re wondering if it can be mounted on a wall. Since most curved TVs are larger than regular flat-screens, they might not fit on your TV stand, and mounting them is the best option.

At first, it might seem like a complicated process that’s best left to handymen and technicians, but it’s actually relatively straightforward. With the steps outlined in this article, you’ll be able to mount your new curved TV to a wall with no problems.

Can Curved TVs Be Wall Mounted?

If you’re wondering if a curved TV can be wall-mounted, the answer is yes. Since only the screen is curved, the majority of curved TVs can be wall-mounted. The mounting holes are all aligned. The process for mounting a curved TV is similar to mounting a regular flat screen. Most curved TVs are compatible with most TV mounts and wall brackets.

Are There Any Special TV Mounts for Curved TVs on the Market?

The majority of curved TVs do not require a special mount. Almost any mount or bracket that has been rated as compatible with your TV model should do the trick. On the other hand, there are some special brackets that work best with curved TVs, such as swivel brackets that allow the TV to be viewed from multiple angles.

Bear in mind, mounting a TV requires the use of tools, such as a drill, screwdrivers, pencils, and a level. On that note, you might also need to drill directly into your walls. In most cases, a level is included in the TV mount box. It’s always recommended to use the included level, otherwise, you risk mounting the TV on a slight slant.

While the process is pretty simple, if you don’t feel comfortable (or you don’t have the right tools), you can always hire a handyman or technician to install the mount for you. If you’re doing it alone, I suggest taking a look at the VESA mounting holes and measurements on the rear of your TV before you look for a bracket (we’ll talk about how to find the measurement later on).

How to Get VESA Measurements for Your TV Mount?

VESA size is a measurement standard that represents the area of the mounting holes covers on the rear of your TV.

In most cases, the number will be listed on your TV manual or you can easily find it online by searching for your TV model. However, manually calculating the number is easy too.

You simply need to measure the distance between the mounting holes of your TV or monitor. Measure the length and height using the millimeters, and that will be your VESA measurement. For example, 200×200 or 400×400. Naturally, the larger the TV, the larger the VESA.

It will be very difficult to find a compatible TV wall mount if you don’t know your TV’s VESA measurements, so make you know that number before you start shopping for a wall mount.

To summarize, it’s easy to mount a curved TV to a wall. I recommend buying a wall mount that has a nice swivel range, and a bit of tilt is nice too. Good luck.
