What Size Of TV Should You Get For Your Room? – If you want to make the most out of your TV-watching experience, there are many factors to consider. The size of your TV (relative to your room) is one of them. Actually it is one of the important ones. In this article, we will discuss what size (and resolution) of TV is ideal for your room (or the distance from which you are going to watch TV). Basically there are two things you want to consider – 1) Screen Size and Resolution and 2) Room Size/ Distance from your TV.
Screen Size And Display Resolution
The size of a television set is measured diagonally from one corner to the other. Measuring in this fashion, modern TVs generally come in these sizes – 24 Inches, 32 Inches, 43 Inches, 50 Inches, 55 Inches, 65 Inches and 75 Inches. As for display resolution, modern TVs generally have the following display resolutions – HD Ready (1366 x 768 pixels), Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) and 8K Ultra HD (7680 x 4320 pixels). Now, the bigger screen size your TV has the more display resolution you’ll want so that your picture won’t look pixelated. Also, if you plan to sit close to your TV (for gaming, etc.) we recommend getting a TV with at least 4K Ultra HD resolution if you don’t want to look at any pixelation. And the farther you’ll sit from your TV, the more screen size and display resolution you’ll need. But if you have a limited budget, you’ll want to consider your room size (or the distance from which you are going to watch TV).
Room Size and TV Position
The room in which are going to install your TV is another factor you’ll have to consider. More precisely, the distance between your TV and your furniture is what really matters. If you are willing to move your sitting furniture, you can have some flexibility in the screen size of the TV you are going to get. If not, we have one formula for you. Samsung on its official website has put out a formula that determines the ideal screen size for you given the distance between the television and your furniture. It goes like this – Measure the distance between where you’ll put the TV and where you’ll sit, then multiply by 0.84 if you measured in inches or 0.33 if you measured in centimetres to calculate your ideal screen size. If math makes your head hurt, don’t you worry! We got your back. The table given below gives the exact distance for various TVs.
Distance Between You & TV VS Screen Size
|Screen Size||Recommended Distance / Maximum Distance|
|24 Inches||2.5 Feet / 3.75 Feet|
|32 Inches||3.1 Feet / 4.65 Feet|
|43 Inches||4.3 Feet / 6.45 Feet|
|50 Inches||5.0 Feet / 7.50 Feet|
|55 Inches||5.5 Feet / 8.25 Feet|
|65 Inches||6.4 Feet / 9.60 Feet|
|75 Inches||7.4 Feet / 11.10 Feet|
*we felt like Samsung’s numbers were too strict so we included a maximum distance too.
