You'd think mounting your TV was a simple process, but the reality is that there are more different ways to do it to keep the limited floor space clear for your armless sofa or comfy softbed. In this article, we’ve compiled 5 space-saving ways to mount your TV in your HDB flat.

Do you know mounting your TV on the wall allows you to retrieve extra living space? A wall-mounted TV is the centerpiece of any wall unit. In this case, it’s actually placed in the center of living room. The design is simple and includes a long shelf above the TV which frames the design beautifully.
Alternatively, you could opt for wall-mounted shelves, especially open back ones, to lend your living room a much lighter feel. It’d be even perfect if you prefer a minimalist décor as wall-mounted shelves complement very well with your TV to bring about a gorgeous composition to your living room.
2. Hang your TV on the Ceiling

Hanging your TV on the ceiling will save space and give a sense of lightness that’s essential in smaller rooms. It’d also keep it well out of the reach of your baby in case you need to baby-proof your living room.
When selecting a location to hang your TV, remember that televisions are best viewed above eye level. To hide the cables, choose a location where wires can easily connect from their source to the television. You’ll also want to hang your TV near a power outlet. In this case, you may have to install a new outlet directly behind the TV for a cleaner look.
3. Place your TV within a Recessed Wall

Take advantage of the walls in your living room by placing your TV within a recessed wall. Without a doubt, it’s a magnificent idea for a modern living room because the accent lighting really makes the whole design stand out.
However, you’ll need to install a new outlet behind the TV and then frame everything for a stylish and sleek look. With such a creative design, your TV will be seen a lot flatter than it used to be, giving rise a spacious feeling to your living room.
4. Mount your TV with Multiple Shelves
