How to Choose a TV for your Bedroom
Purchasing a new device is always both an exciting and daunting task. Why do we say this? Well, when it comes to the former one, you are either buying a gadget that you haven’t had before or are upgrading from the current one. Whatever the case may be, it means that there will be multiple new cool features for you to try out and enjoy. On the other hand, this can be a daunting task because there are so many things that you have to think about.
In this article, we are going to focus on purchasing a new TV for your bedroom. First of all, surely you know how many different TV manufacturers there are, and usually, each of them has both satisfied and unsatisfied customers. Next, there is a wide range of TVs that you have to choose from, everything from different sizes to characteristics, and so on. Due to this, we have compiled a list of tips for you to follow.
Come up with a budget
There is a reason why this step is on the initial position of our list. Yes, we understand that you probably want to get the latest model with top-notch features but that doesn’t mean that you should spend the money that you do not have. Plus, there will possibly be some additional cost, like the installation company’s fee, or a new shelf that you have to buy. Also, consider if you want to invest in a TV antenna or continue with your cable subscription. You can learn more about your options and how the whole installation process works on this website.
Trust us when we say that most definitely you will find the one that meets all your requirements and the one that is still within your price range. The key is to be patient and to do thorough research.
Decide on the TV size
This is the second thing that you have to do. It might sound like something that you can decide on last, but this is wrong. Why? Well, simply because the size of your bedroom, as well as the place where you intend to put the TV, can affect its size meaning that if you go with one that is too big or too small, you will most certainly decrease your viewing experience.
Firstly, you have to calculate the viewing distance. What is this? Basically, it is the distance between TV and you. So, if you want to mount it on the wall and watch it from your bed, the distance is probably going to be larger than the one where you would watch it from a chair or a sofa.
Next, you should measure the space where you want to place it. This is a common thing that people forget to do so they end up with a screen that is too big or they get disappointed when they realize that they could have gone with a larger one. If you already have a shelf, then all you have to do is measure its dimensions. If not, then you have to include it into calculations.
Choose the type of screen
If you have already done any kind of research, surely you have noticed that most TVs have either OLED or LED screen. What’s the difference? Without a doubt, the former one is state-of-the-art technology meaning that it will provide you with a better picture thus increase your viewing experience. Nevertheless, as it is to be expected, it is more expensive than the LED type. Don’t forget to stay within your budget, and this won’t be too difficult since the prices of OLED screens are coming down.
There are multiple differences between these two regarding the brightness, contrast, black levels, viewing angles, and so on. In order to go with the right one for you, it is of crucial importance to learn all this information about both types. In addition, if there is something that is unclear to you, you can always go to the local store and ask the expert. Plus, you will have the opportunity to see these two, side-by-side.
Think about the TV resolution
When it comes to this feature, once again, there are some things that you have to investigate. As you know, most screens have a resolution of 720P and 1080P. However, a few years ago, 4K technology was introduced and it has taken the TV resolution to an entirely new level. Even though 4K is a significant improvement to regular HD standards, you should keep in mind that, currently, there isn’t much 4K content available.
Due to this reason, you should consider getting a regular HD TV. Also, these are significantly cheaper than they were a few years ago. Nevertheless, even though some people do not notice the difference between 720P and 1080P, you should keep in mind that it is more noticeable the larger the TV is.
Why you should go with a smart TV?
Finally, we are going to discuss why you should go a step further when it comes to top-notch technology. First of all, this TV can be connected not only to the Internet but also to other smart devices in your home. These include smartphones, laptops, tablets, and so on. This means that you will be able to browse the web as well as read your emails and check the news feed on social media.
Secondly, there are multiple apps that you can install. In layman’s terms, a smart TV is another gadget that will provide you with numerous fun features to use. You can install a simple app and manage it via your phone or some other device.
Moreover, streaming platforms and services are becoming more and more popular. The great thing about these is that they provide you with the opportunity to choose what you want to watch and when you want to watch it. You can choose between hundreds of shows, series, and your favorite movies, and also, these companies create some great original work that you can’t elsewhere. This is why so many people are signing up for these and are willing to pay a small monthly fee.
