Brackets complement and highlight a shelf, defining its look and feel, and adding to the character of the room. You can find them in materials as diverse as classic wrought iron, modern sleek chrome, warm and inviting wood and more. Shelf brackets should reflect their surroundings. Modern chrome brackets fit better holding up glass shelves in a bathroom, but cast iron Victorian brackets will work better in a foyer or formal dining room.
The price of wall mounts can vary widely, and even though the cost may be small in comparison to the cost of your TV, a lot of people find that even the most basic types of mount can actually be relatively expensive for that they are. If you already have a cabinet to house your receivers and other equipment, it can look slightly odd to see the TV mounted to the wall instead of placed on top of the cabinet.
