When buying a new TV it is important to buy an appropriately sized TV for your room although there are fewer defects in bigger sized screens these days; however, a big screen in a small room can become overbearing, especially for your eyes.

How To Calculate TV Size For a Room?

Before you decided on the type of TV you are looking whether it be HDTV, LCD TV, LED TV, or Ultra HD TV, you need to decide where you want to place your TV. You should first measure the height, width, and depth of the location you have chosen to set up your entertainment centre. When shopping keep in mind that some TV sets have footprints that are physically larger than others on the same screen size, so always look at the dimensions to see whether they will slot into the space available.

To measure the dimensions of the TV, you need to measure the distance from one corner to corner diagonally. Or you can usually find the dimensions on a label on the back of the body of the TV set by checking the first number in the model name.

The Width of The TV Stand

The TV stand is the second size-related consideration if you are not going to mount your new TV on a wall. You need to be aware of how much space your TV stand takes up on your table and ensure that the space you plan on placing your television has enough space to hold the stand.

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you can’t wall-mount your TV and the provided stand for your TV is not fitting you can always opt for a universal TV stand. Many of these stands also provide tilt, pivot up and down, and as well as left to right.

How Far Away Will You Be?

Apparently, the size of your TV matters with how close you sit to it and there are many online calculators that can give you an estimate from the distance from your seat to the television —  which can tell you about the size of TV you should buy. At the end of the day, you can go as big as you like with your television size but make sure that you are sitting at least 4 feet from the TV.

Size Versus Quality

The price of a TV is usually exponential to its size and if you are on a tight budget, you have to sacrifice quality for size and size for quality. However, as the technology improves and the availability of higher resolution TVs expands, the larger TVs become more common and therefore strike a balance between two factors for longtime enjoyment.

For the time being instead of opting for a massive 65-inch 4K Television, consider going for the smaller 55-inches which has a far better screen and better resolution which will result in a more immersive viewing experience.


If the recommended size is outside your budget, just go for the biggest TV you can afford and since the picture quality of most TVs nowadays are 4K. Or you can opt for smaller TV with a higher quality screen that is constantly displaying the highest fidelity image you can expect from your set.
