Ok, so you’ve bought your new projector and you’re excited to start
watching movies, but did you remember to also buy some sort of projector
mount? Projector mounts are one of the most overlooked accessories needed
to use your projector effectively. Sure propping it up on the table with
some books works for now, but a more permanent mounting system needs to be
considered for the long term.
When considering projector mounts you have 3 main options available to you.
In order of preference they are; ceiling mount, table top mount and wall
mount. This article will talk about these different mounting options and
the specifics of each. Also if you plan on using a one of the various
ceiling projector mounts then make sure first that your projector has a
ceiling mode on it that will flip the picture around and display it
There are also high tech projector mounts that will mount your projector
flush and hidden in your ceiling or wall and then will extend itself on a
motorized track when you want to watch a movie or use the projector. And
then when you are finished the projector will retract back in the ceiling
or wall. This is not a cheap option, but it is very cool and if your budget
can afford it, then why not go for it.
Available Projector Mounts:
Ceiling Mounted Projector
A ceiling mount is by far the most popular of the available projector
mounts. A few of the things you need to take into consideration when
looking at ceiling installation are; the weight of the projector, projector
size, will ceiling fans or hanging light fixtures be in the way, will it
take away from your homes décor?
Tabletop Mounted Projector
As far as projector mounts go a table top mount is certainly the easiest to
install, however there are a number of things to consider. Is the projector
in a high traffic area where it can easily become damaged? Can the
projector adjust to allow the picture to display properly on the screen?
Will the noise from the projector running interfere with your movie? Do you
have kids who could burn themselves on a hot projector?
Wall Mounted Projector
Projector mounts in a wall setting are typically mounted in a corner of the room up near
the ceiling and above average head height. Some things to consider about
wall mounts are: Does the projector have an unobstructed view of the
screen? Is the projector mounted high enough so as not to be a hazard for
people’s heads? Can your wall mount handle the weight of your chosen
Use the above information to help you decide which of the available
projector mounts is right for your home or office.
