The TVs today are quite big and they need extra support when installed on the wall or ceiling. Luckily there are many different types of mounting devices that can easily help you with this task. You can now install them either to be fixed on the wall just like a hanging painting, you can allow some tilting left and right, or you can allow for full motion, depending on the mounting devices that you have bought.
One of the easiest devices to use is the low profile mount. This is really cheap and very easy to install due to its simplicity. You can have your TV fixed on the wall with this mounting device, so the TV will not tilt horizontally nor vertically. It will be fixed like a wall painting.
The next type is the tilting mount which allows for a bit of tilting of your TV up and down. Some allow up to a 20% degree tilting which is not bad. What you can't do with this type is move it left or right so you're quite limited in where you need to sit to properly watch your television. This type is a bit more expensive than the previous one, but still well within most pockets' reach.
The full motion or swivel mounting devices - these are the types that allow every movement for your TV, be it horizontal or vertical. They have quite some complex features but of course they cost the most from 3 three types. But if you're walking around in the kitchen going about your business, this is the mount type you need to get, as you can simply move it with your hand quite easily in the direction that you're heading towards. The device sits up to 20" away from the wall, thus allowing for easy movement all around.
Knowing all this, you also need to take the proper TV screen measurements so you don't end up with a much bigger or smaller set. Finally you need to know the weight of your television. Some mounts have a weight limit and in order to avoid having your TV at some point falling to the ground due to the extra weight, you'd better tell your sales person your television weight.
