We finally mounted our family room flat screen television up on the wall! I say finally because this task has been on our to-do for years. We hardly watch TV in this room, because we spend a lot of time in our studios working. But it’s nice to have a central location to stop, plop on the couch and relax and watch our favorite shows in style. So we decided to make it happen and create a space to chill.
The motivation for this grand gesture? I signed on for a campaign with Best Buy to feature the Legrand In-Wall Kit. It’s an easy-to-assemble kit that allows you to hide the wires behind the wall for your mounted set. It offers easy routing of TV power and HDMI cable in-wall, with no electrical wiring required.
You don’t need an electrician, the instructions are easy-to-follow. You need some basic tools, and a mount for your flat screen TV if you don’t have one already. Here’s a helpful video we used to get the job done! If you don’t want to install it yourself (it takes about an hour, you can call to have the Best Buy Geek Squad handle it, or you can call and have a tech walk you through the process on the phone.
We chose to do it ourselves because it was pretty easy. There’s no need to feel intimidated if you’ve always wanted to mount your TV – and hide the wires! Trust me, if we can do this, so can you!
Clean the area where you want to set up your flat screen TV. You’ll be drilling holes into the wall, so make sure to measure and mark where you want that to happen.
Thank you to Best Buy for inviting me to be a part of this project, we loved it!
