Space-Saving Solutions - Sanus TV Mount Review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Years ago, when we invested in our first big flat-screen television, my husband designed and built this beautiful tv shelf. The house where we live now is our "empty nest" home, all 1201 square feet of it, and space is at a real premium here. This large blank wall will someday (hopefully soon) have floor-to-ceiling shelving on it that my husband will build from my pen and paper sketches. I just finished painting the living room this delicious color, so it's time to decorate!
Sanus reached out to me to see if I'd be interested in reviewing one of their TV Mounts for a space-saving solutions post. I saw it as a fabulous opportunity to lift that big television off the shelves to free up several feet of space for me as I work on designing, remodeling, and setting up this home. After selling our 3300 square foot home to downsize to a 1201 square foot home, I can use all the space-saving solutions I can get!
My husband and I debated a bit about how high to place the Sanus TV Mount. Should we place it right above the shelf, a little higher, or a lot higher? After locating the wall stud, he installed it at about eye-level while standing. It was amazing simple to install and it took just a few minutes.
This TV Mount is a full-motion mount, so it will work in both small spaces and large spaces. It holds a 40-50" television and can swivel to be flush against the wall or fully extended out from the wall, plus it can be swiveled to any direction.
The design itself is pretty amazing. It's really compact, incredibly strong, completely sturdy, and takes up barely any room. There is a frame that attaches to the back of the tv, and we just lifted the tv onto the wall mount and let it snap into place. I really don't think it could be easier than that!
Now that the television is on the wall, I have the entire top of the shelving unit to use for other things! I can use it for my seasonal decor, pictures of my family, or even a snack station. Using the Sanus TV Mount has given me back several feet of space, but there is another grand benefit that we didn't even expect. Mounting the tv at a higher level has actually made television viewing so much more comfortable for us. Sanus has elevated our entertainment enjoyment!

  1. Looks a lot better when it's up and out of the way, I have always wanted to mount our TV on the wall like this. Very nice.

  2. Love wall mounts. They look so much nicer than just sitting on the cabinet. We have a wall mount and we use the swivel quite a bit as well.
