What is the perfect size of TV as per the viewing experience?



What size TV should you buy? That’s the most important question to be asked when you are settling on a new TV purchase. After all, a TV is a one-time investment so you want to be sure with the size you will go in for.

It’s easy to be lured into buying a new TV with talk of 4K (or 8K) resolution, high-end smart TV features, or fancy speaker arrays. However, if you haven’t got the right TV size for you, you can end up with an over-sized display that dominates your space or a small screen that you have to strain to see from across your living room.

Getting the right TV size for you will depend on your individual needs, as well as the needs of your home, the size of the room you plan to put it in, the number of people that will be watching it at any one time and, of course, how big your budget is. 


The first step is to understand where you would like to place the TV e.g living room, bedroom or study room and the viewers’ proximity to the screen. A simple thumb rule that may help you is dividing the distance between the viewer and the screen by 1.6


Screen Size = TV-to-viewer distance / 1.6


The below table should be able to give you a fair idea of the ideal size as per the viewing distance:

You might know vaguely that you want a humble-sized small TV or something super-sized, but there are plenty of different TV sizes to consider at a variety of prices. If a mid-sized TV is what you're after, do you want the flagship 55-inch size, or is a 49-inch the largest you can fit on your counter? Keep in mind the ideal distance can vary depending if you mount your TV on a wall or place it on a stand. Mounting a TV on the wall can give you a little more room to work with.
