How to Measure Your TV For the Best Fit

Measure your TV' width, height and depth
for the best fit in a cabinet. 
Based on the recent surge of requests we have received for TV lift cabinet measurements, we can safely assume TV sales have spiked this holiday season. Fueled by big discounts, many pre-and post-Black Friday shoppers have upgraded to new flat screen TVs with advanced smart features and bigger screens.

Plan For the Placement of the TV


In the excitement of purchasing a large screen television, preparing for the placement of the new TV is often an afterthought. For those who rent or have less wall space than anticipated, a TV lift cabinet offers an easy alternative to wall mounting. The motorized lift raises and lowers the TV into the cabinet and prevents a large TV from being the focal point of the room when it’s not in use.

Safer Alternative to an Unsecured TV Stand


A TV lift cabinet is a safer alternative to an unsecured TV stand or the top of a dresser. The TV firmly attaches to the lift mechanism, preventing dangerous TV tip-overs that can injure children and pets, as well as damage the TV.

A 60" TV Is Not Sixty Inches Wide


The TV manufacturer’s size is based on the diagonal measurement from the top left corner of the screen to the bottom right corner of the screen. This measurement does not include the frame (bezel) around the screen. This means a 60-inch TV is not 60 inches wide horizontally, which can cause some confusion when determining your TV’s required wall space or TV cabinet space.

How to Measure Your TV For the Perfect Fit


To figure out the wall or cabinet space your television will need, use a tape measure to determine the horizontal width, height and depth from edge to edge. Include the frame (bezel) around the screen in your measurements.

Step 1: Measure the Depth


Measure from the extreme front of the TV to the extreme back of the TV. Don't include the measurement of an attached TV stand.





Step 2: Measure the Width


Measure horizontally from the left outer edge of the frame to the right outer edge of the frame.





Step 3: Measure the Height


Measure vertically from the extreme top of the TV to the extreme bottom of the TV.
