70" TV in Contemporary Home
We are often asked how big or small a TV should be for a particular room. Scale is important. While a 70" TV to many would seem very large, in this room, the viewing distance and ceiling height make it look rather normal and in context. A 42' tv would be scaled to draw attention to itself in a negative way if used in this room. Measuring the TV height and multiply by 3 is an average way to calculate normal viewing distance. Another is room scale. Ask yourself this question. Would I hang a peice of artwork this size on this wall? If both these factors are considered, you will have a tv big enough to enjoy while not overwhelming your room .
