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.
You can even go to another level and create brackets that match the theme of the room. For example, try glued-together kitchen utensils for an eye-grabbing set of brackets in the kitchen. Or how about gluing old video cassettes to a thin metal bracket for a shelf next to the TV? You can also take cheap brackets and decorate them. Try attaching CDs onto brackets for a striking stereo shelf or sticking ribbons and bows on a plain shelf bracket in a little girl’s room? The sky’s the limit. Go wild with some decorative shelf brackets.
