When you own your home, you can do anything you want to the interior. But if you’re a renter, you have to abide by the landlord’s rules. In some cases, drilling holes in the wall could put your security deposit in jeopardy. But what if you want to mount your TV where you can easily see it from different angles? Here are the 5 best TV stands for renters.

Drilling or Not, There’s a Mount for That

If your landlord says it’s OK to drill holes, you have three wall-mounting options for your TV. There’s one to match your budget as well as your viewing desires.

  1. A full-motion wall mount will give your screen maximum exposure from any angle. It’s a great choice if your apartment or house has an open floor plan, where you’d like to see the TV from multiple room areas. This is one of the best TV mounts you’ll find.
  1. A tilting wall mount also allows you to customize your viewing angle. This is a good choice for a single room, especially if it’s a bright, sunny space. Tilting the screen helps eliminate glare. 
  1. A fixed position mount is a budget-friendly way to clean up your entertainment center. They are also generally low profile and keep your TV close to the wall, which is great if you are aiming for a streamlined aesthetic.
  1. You may want to mount other AV components or accessories, too. Along with the best TV mounts, SANUS offers three types of wall mounts for these other items:
  • A single-column unit that has two shelves to hold accessories and/or components
  • A unit designed to accommodate your AV components underneath your wall-mounted TV
  • A single shelf that can hold AV components up to 15 lbs.
  1. If drilling holes is not allowed, don’t worry. You can still improve the visibility of your TV for everyone in the room with a swivel base. All you need is a screwdriver to attach it to your television. Whether your TV is sitting on your bedroom dresser, a desk, or a table in your living room, you’ll be able to swivel it 20o to the left or right. You can adjust the height, too, if you want to put other components or accessories underneath the TV.

So, Now That Your TV Is in Position . . .
