Fireplace TV Wall Mount Installation Charlotte, NC 704-905-2965
INFINITE DESIGNS HOME THEATER PROS




Its seems that everyone wants their flat screen TV mounted above the fireplace.
Nothing compliments the decor of a beautiful home more than a professionally mounted flat screen above the mantle!

We have encountered and conquered just about every type of fireplace imaginable in our home theater experiences, therefore this blog is for you!




STANDARD FIREPLACE 
TV WALL MOUNT INSTALLATIONS


Standard exterior wall fireplace TV installations are the most common and most requested. The actual mounting of the TV is never a problem with a flat (fixed) or tilting wall mount. Stud spacing varies above the mantle so we have invented methods to override this problem. Whether your fireplace has standard-spaced studs or no studs at all, we can professionally install your flat-screen TV with no worries! Some full-motion wall mounts require standard-spaced studs and in these situations, the sturdiness of the TV is never jeopardized. If we can't find a custom mount to fit your installation, we will strongly suggest the TV not be installed on this kind of mount because of the possible problems with leverage and constantly moving the TV. As always, we suggest using tilting TV wall mounts over flat (fixed) mounts above your fireplace to reduce eye-lift and neck soreness.

Below are a few pictures of some recent standard fireplace TV wall mount installations...









45 DEGREE (CORNER) FIREPLACE 
TV WALL MOUNT INSTALLATIONS


Many homes are being built with fireplaces set at 45 degree angles. In most cases, we can conceal the cables inside the wall without making unnecessary holes, depending on how the builder reinforced the sides of the fireplace. These installations allow the TV to be seen from a wide viewing angle because of the positioning of the fireplace wall.

FIREPLACE NOOK / CUTOUT / CUBBYHOLE / NICHE 
TV WALL MOUNT INSTALLATIONS


Does your fireplace have a hole above the mantle? Some call it a nook, cutout, cubbyhole, niche, TV cave, or several other names. We have heard several horror stories of $150 consultations and estimates going up to $800 for this installation. We have also heard many say the fireplace has to be closed off and reinforced with studs. Not with us! We've found a custom method to mount your TV where it covers this area and looks like its floating in the air! We even hide the components like your cable / satellite box, bluray player, gaming system, surround sound receiver, and sub woofer behind the TV. The complete installation takes about 2 hours and costs less than $300.

BRICK AND STONE FIREPLACE 
TV WALL MOUNT INSTALLATIONS

Brick and stone fireplaces usually require some kind of surface wire concealing, unless the fireplace is prewired with an electrical outlet and HDMI cable. We take special care with these installations to ensure that you have the peace of mind to let your kids play and sleep under your TV! In some cases, where we have to use plastic wire molding to conceal the cables from the TV, we use textured materials to blend the molding into your fireplace. It's all about ATTENTION TO DETAIL!

ADDING SURROUND SOUND TO YOUR FIREPLACE 
TV WALL MOUNT INSTALLATION

When wall mounting a flat screen TV above a fireplace, we try to always ask if the customer plans to install surround sound in the room. If so, it is best to have the front 3.1 surround sound speakers (front left, front right, center, and sub woofer) prewired while having the other wiring installed. This prevents us from having to unmount the TV later and saves you money, which is always our aim. We use nothing but the best 16 gauge speaker wire for all of our audio installations.
