TV Console- how high to put the tv?? Help

14 years ago

We are building a new home and we need to tell the electrician how high to put the cable and plug for the TV that we want to hang in the family room.

The family room is 21'5 x 19'6 with over 20 foot ceilings (so very high)

The console table we bought is 33 inches high... we would like to hang the tv but want to make sure its not too high where you have to constantly look up. (and i would like to have it high enough to put pictures on top??) but again i dont want it too high?

Can you give your suggestion? How much higher up should we go from the height of the console? If you have pics please share them...

We are looking at a 55 inch tv.... the console table is 67 inches long (and 33 1/2"h)

Here are some pics
