TV size for above fireplace

4 years ago

I realizz (lame attempt at Houzz humor!) that mounting a TV above a fireplace is, at best, controversial. That said, if I DO decide to go that route, I'm trying to decide if I should get a larger TV. For me, he more like a cinema the better, but obviously I don't want to go TOO large for the space.

In the picture below my current TV -- a 60" -- is marked with a black rectangle. The red rectangle represents a 65", which would basically align with the edge of the fireplace uprights. If I were to go for a 70", it would likely align with the edge of the mantle.

I'm thinking 70" is probably too big, and that 65" might be just right. Thoughts?

(Apologies for my poor photo editing.)
