Would you like to be able to buy the TV Smart Shelf at Walmart?
Mounting a flat screen tv above fireplace is an esthetically pleasing way to make efficient use of space in a room. With today's flat panel televisions and wall mounting brackets, it is very easy to position a tv above a fireplace. Moving an outlet and the cable connector behind where the tv will be mounted can be done by a qualified electrician, a tv installer or by a knowledgeable do-it-yourselfer.
Positioning tv compoents, like a cable box, dvd player or game system, must be considered when mounting a flat screen tv above a fireplace. The best way to position these components is to use a floating shelf that attaches directly to the wall mount. This can be complete without tools and without drilling into the wall. Not only does this provide an easy to install place for audio visual components, but its sleek design accentuates any decor.
The floating shelf for flat screen tvs comes in 36 or 48" lengths and in black or clear glass. It's patent pending design attaches directly to the stationary or tilt mount, not the wall. The black E coat aluminum extension arms with wall bumpers attach to the anti lift locking mechanism to safely secure the floating shelf to the wall mount. The 3/8" thick beveled glass is 12" deep and adjustable in height. Holding up to 30 lbs., the floating shelf is perfect for the cable box, DVD or other devices. To hide the unsightly wires from your devices, a cable management system is included. The floating shelf currently works with 32"-60" stationary and tilt mounts from AVF Vector, Bello, Chief, Haropa, Ionic, K2, Level Mount, Luxor, Monster, Omni, Peerless, Premier, ProMount, Rhino, Sanus and Welton. The shelf is not recommended for use with articulating, full motion or motorized wall mounts.
So if you are looking for a great way to display your tv over fireplace , the floating shelf from Simple Shelving Solutions is the number one option for creating a beautiful looking tv fireplace display.
