Flat Screen TV

Check with your contractor as well as your electrician or installer if you are planning on mounting a flat screen television directly on your walls. Most television mounts need wooden studs 16 inches apart. If you’re in a condominium and have metal studs, you will have to reinforce your wall with additional plywood behind the gyproc. Make sure this is done before the television arrives at your home or you may get a nasty surprise!
