Cost to Mount TV and Hide Wires

Mounting a TV and hiding the wires in the wall could run upwards of $1,000 or more. If you opt for cable covers that adhere to the wall, you won’t pay nearly as much. These kits run from $10 to $40 for materials only, not counting labor.

If you want to hide the wires inside the wall, then the cost to install a flat screen TV will increase. This is a good option, however, for maximum concealment and safety from children and pets getting to the wires.

Cost to Mount TV Over Fireplace

You can expect to pay between $175 to $400 to mount your TV over the fireplace, though you might need a mantle to create a safety barrier.

In some cases, the location of the TV will impact the cost of installation. If it's difficult to access, then it might be more expensive. This will also affect the degree of difficulty for wiring. You'll want to make sure you pick a spot that is visible from as many places as possible and that is at a comfortable height.

Cost to Hang a TV

TV Wall Mount Prices

Wall mounts range from $15 to $420 or more. Fixed metal brackets are the least expensive, usually costing no more than $100. Some fixed models run between $30 and $50.

One of the most important aspects of TV installation is obtaining the proper bracket. A specialized bracket will ensure that the TV doesn't damage the wall or fall from its mount. There are a range of brackets or mounts to choose from. The more complicated the bracket, the more the cost to install a flat screen TV will be.

DIY vs. Hiring Professional Wall-Mounting Services

The last thing anyone wants is to hear their expensive 4K TV crashing to the ground because of a DIY installation gone wrong. Hiring a professional is relatively inexpensive and well worth the peace of mind.

Television installation costs depend on the complexity of the model you choose, how you want to conceal the wiring and if you decide to tack on any extras. Regardless of what you choose, a professional will definitely help you unpack, assemble and connect your system.
