How To Build A Recessed Wall For Tv

A recessed wall for TV is a great way to make it look like your house is a castle. A recessed wall for TV can be installed by following the steps below.

You can build a recessed wall for your TV by following these simple steps:

  • Measure the space where you want to put your TV and calculate how much of that area is going to be taken up by the television itself. Then, measure from the edges of the screen (which will be hidden inside the recess) to make sure there’s enough room for your chosen size of television. If not, consider changing what size TV you want or moving it around until you find an arrangement that works both with your furniture and with how much space is available in this particular area of your house.
  • Once you’re happy with everything being measured out properly, it’s time to build! All we have left now is constructing a recessed wall around our television so we can hide away all those wires and cables behind them–and keep them out of sight while also keeping them protected from damage caused by things like children running into walls or pets knocking over lamps (or even adults tripping over those same wires). A good way

to do this involves using drywall panels which are easy-to-install DIY materials made specifically for this purpose.”

1. Draw The Mounting Box

The first step is to measure the distance from the wall to your TV. This is important because you want to make sure that whatever mount you use will be able to reach the mounting plate on your wall (it should be directly behind where your TV is). You’ll also need to measure how far away from the edge of your TV frame you want it embedded in your wall.

To figure out these measurements, take a tape measure and hold it against both sides of your television—one at an angle so that it measures straight across from one edge where you’re going to place it into its recessed cavity, and another straight down toward its center point. Then add together these two measurements: if they come up under 50 inches (125 cm), then consider getting a smaller mount; otherwise go with something larger like this one here

2. Cut The Drywall

Using a drywall saw, begin cutting the wall. Hold the level against the drywall and make sure it is level. Then, cut along the line you drew with your pencil.

What’s Next?

  • Use a drywall knife to cut through any spots of stubborn material that did not get cut with your saw. If you have trouble getting through these areas, use a scoring tool instead of trying to force it through with brute strength alone. With this method you can usually get through these spots without damaging either tool or material too badly.

3. Level The Studs

You’ll need to first find the studs in your wall with a stud finder. Then, use a pencil to mark out the locations of each stud. Once you have marked all of the studs, level them with a level so they are all at the same height. Now that you’ve got this part done, it’s time to cut your 2x4s down so they fit snugly into place next to each other when placed vertically on top of each other. If you’re using standard 2x4s (1 ½” x 3 ½”), then cut them down until they measure 14 7/8″ long (this should leave about ¼” extra on either side).

After cutting down your wood pieces and marking where everything goes, use some screws and wood glue to secure them together into one solid frame for hanging your TV on later. Make sure that once finished screwing everything together there are no gaps or openings between any of these pieces as this could lead to damage down the road when mounting things up against this wall kit later on

4. Hang The Drywall

There are several types of fasteners that can be used to hang drywall. Drywall anchors, screws and molly bolts are the most common. Drywall anchors provide a reusable method for hanging heavier items on drywall such as a TV or shelving unit. Screws work well for lightweight items such as pictures and mirrors. The last type of fastener is the drywall hanger which is used to hang light weight items like shelving units on wallboard with minimal damage to the wallboard surface itself.

The advantage of using screws over other methods is that it reduces any potential damage caused by removing them at some point in the future when you decide not to use that space anymore but still want access through your recessed wall area into another room or closet just above where they may have been installed originally

5. Patch the drywall

Now that you have your recessed wall, it’s time to make it look great. You will want to patch the drywall so that you can cover up any blemishes that may be visible after you’ve installed your TV mount and television.

  • Cut out a hole in the drywall with a drywall knife. The hole should be slightly larger than the size of your TV mount or curved piece of wood.
  • Apply drywall compound over the entire patch, then use a wet sponge to smooth out all of the edges until they are as even as possible with each other and surrounding wall cavity.
  • Use drywall tape and screws (if necessary) to mount your TV mount into place on top of this newly patched area on top of which is where your flat screen TV will sit comfortably inside its new home made just for it without having to worry about damaging anything else in its way like some kind of big clumsy oaf might do if given half chance

6. Install the Mounting Boxes

  • Install the Mounting Boxes

Now that you have your mounting box holes, it’s time to install them. The easiest way is to use a stud finder, which will identify where the studs are behind your drywall. Then mark the spots with pencil or pen and drill holes for each of your mounting boxes into those spots. Once all of your mounting boxes are installed, mount them to their respective walls by screwing in their brackets from underneath with screws and nuts provided with the boxes (if necessary).

Once all of these steps have been completed and before you proceed with hanging up any cables for hooking up an antenna or cable TV service provider such as Comcast Xfinity or Spectrum (formerly Charter), make sure that everything fits perfectly into place

Hiding a TV

Hiding a TV is a great way to save space in your living room. You can easily make it look modern, while saving money and making your living room look more stunning than ever.

The first thing you need to do is figure out how much space you have for the wall unit and where you want it to be located. Once that is determined, measure from the floor up to the bottom of where you will put the screen. Take this measurement and use it as an anchor point for where your TV should sit on top of its stand behind a recessed wall unit (or “recessed frame”). Then measure from there up one inch above that spot which will give us a final cut line for our recess project at 2½ inches above our anchor point (1 inch plus ½ inch).
