How do you choose the ideal size for your OLED TV?
We will help you choose the OLEDTV size that suits you and your home best, and we will tell you everything you need to know before buying one.
Choosing a TV can be complicated. Whether in a physical shop or online, there are thousands of options to choose from in terms of design, price and size.. So, how do you choose the ideal TV? Well, it depends on a number of different factors, such as where you want to put it, how far away you’ll be watching it from, the support you have. These are all things you’ll have to consider carefully in order to find the perfect TV for you and your home.
Where are you going to put the TV?
Let's start with the place, in other words, the spot or corner where you want to put your TV. The location is very important when choosing the size of the TV, as the space you have available to use will determine its size. Naturally, if you’re looking for a large TV, you’ll need a larger space. On the other hand, if you're looking for a second TV to put in your kitchen or guest room, you can opt for a small TV. Even so, you should always keep several things in mind:
The TV should be placed near a TV connection. In fact, the closer the better. That way, you’ll avoid a messy pile of cables.
Walls or areas found perpendicular to windows are the best places to put a TV, as this helps avoid reflections. Also, you should never place it right in front of a window, because the natural light will affect the quality.
If you don't have much space, you can hang the TV on a wall, but make sure that the wall can hold its weight. Choose good, fixed supports (there are even ones that incline and ones with arms) and organise the cables well.
The most comfortable and secure option is to look for a flat, stable surface. For example, using a low piece of furniture to support the TV, as we’ve done all our lives, is the perfect location. Also, a few models, like Panasonic TVs, have a variable base so that you can turn the TV in the direction you want.
Once you have decided where you want to put the TV, you should check whether or notit fits. Measure the height, width and depth of the area where you want to place the TV and take a note of these measurements. Fortunately, many modern TVs have flat screens, which means that they take up less space.
However, not all TVs are the same, even if they have the same measurements. Some have a larger box than others, or wider supports. Therefore, having the exact measurements of the place and TV is very important. In addition, if you don’t want to go to a shop, you can easily find a TV’s measurements online. For example, if you’re looking for a 55-inch Panasonic OLED TV , you know its approximate size, which will be pretty useful.
How high will the TV be?
Height is an important factor to keep in mind when choosing a TV. If you’re going to be sitting on the sofa, the lower edge of the TV should be level with your eye line. Living room furniture that comes with space for a TV already takes this into consideration and is consequently made to measure. In theory, you can watch TV at whatever height you like and from where you want,, but if you follow the recommendations, you’ll be able to watch it from an optimal height.
From what distance are you going to watch the TV?
Another important factor to keep in mind before buying a TV is the distance from which you are going to sit when watching it. It isn’t good to sit too close or too far. In fact, we need to be aware that the larger the screen is, the higher viewing quality we’ll have. Therefore, if we have a very large TV and we sit very close to the screen, the image will be pixelated, but if we have a small TV and sit very far from the screen, we won’t see it correctly.
There are a few formulas which allow you to calculate the optimum distance for your TV with respect to its size, and viceversa. The simplest seems to be the following:
These are approximate calculations as every person is different. In general, you still have to think about viewing intensity, and the amount of light in the room and surroundings.
Any size is good
It’s true that a large TV will give you a much more intense viewing experience, but it’sessential to choose a TV size that is most appropriate for our home. Regardless of the space you have, there are lots of options to choose from, both big and small. Any size TV is good if the location is correct!
OLED Panasonic TVs always give you a high quality viewing experience, no matter what the size.
In conclusion, in order to find the ideal size TV for your home, you’ll mainly need to think about where the TV will live, how far you’ll be watching it from and the TVs specs. If you carefully consider these three factors, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in your favourite series and enjoy an optimal viewing experience. You don’t need to know mathematics or be an expert in interior design,, just follow this simple advice and you’ll be up and running with your new TV in no time.And what about you, what size of TV have you chosen?
