Want to polish your entertainment system so it looks sharp, messy cables are untangled or hidden, and components are close at hand? Omnimount has always underscored the importance of safely – and stylishly – integrating technology into the home. Take a look at our colorful e-book, How to Accessorize Your New TV, for ideas. Explore a variety of rooms with mounted TV solutions and see how the right accessories make any space more functional and fashion-forward.

Mounting your TV on the wall is a great way to prevent a potentially dangerous situation, especially if your TV will be used in a high-traffic area or in a household with kids and pets. Choose between fixed, tilt, full motion, or interactive mounts. To get the most out of your media room, be sure to pick a spot to mount your TV that’s near electrical outlets.

After your TV is mounted, here are four steps to adding style to your space:

  1. Make sure you’re not putting stress on cables – stretching, sharply bending, or setting heavy objects on them can damage the wires, causing signal failures that affect sound and picture quality. If insulation is frayed or worn, replace the cable.
  2. Add an AV wall shelf to hold components: A sleek wall shelf is a great solution to hold a soundbar, satellite/cable box or gaming console near the TV.
  3. Manage loose cables: Cable management is an important final step. Not only will it create a pro-quality finished look, but it’ll also secure cables that could otherwise be pulled out or tripped on.
  4. Speaking of cables, label them so it’s easy to identify what goes to the TV, speakers, and components. (A bread bag ring and indelible marker is fine, but so is a fancy label maker.)
