How to Mount Your TV Without Drilling Holes

While mounting a TV on your wall is one of the most common ways to set up a TV in your home, office, or business, it's not a feasible solution for everyone. Sometimes you're in a rental space that won't allow drilling into the wall, sometimes you need more flexibility in your room, and sometimes you're just not comfortable about drilling into the wall of your space.

In any case, drill-free TV mounts are a great alternative that can offer many of the same features as wall mounts and more flexibility in how you customize your setup.

The Best TV Mounts That Don't Drill Into Your Wall

There are many ways to mount a TV screen in your home with or without drilling. It's always worth considering drill-free TV mounts so that you can customize your space exactly how you like it.

TABLETOP TV STAND

Most flat screen TVs come with their own basic stands so that you can set them up on a flat surface such as a table or media cabinet, but these stands limit your ability to adjust your screen for optimal viewing.

You want to be able to turn or tilt your screen so that you can see it from anywhere in the room, and being able to adjust the height can also enhance your viewing experience. With an after-market TV stand such as the Kanto TTS100(opens in a new tab) you can adjust both the angle and height of your screen while also creating space below for gaming consoles, speakers(opens in a new tab), or other AV equipment.

While many TV cabinets have cable management components built into their design, they don't always give you enough slack or flexibility to raise the screen, which can complicate customizing your setup. The built-in cable management of the Kanto TTS series helps you keep cables tidy as you raise your screen, so you can use it with any sturdy surface.

Another feature to consider in any TV stand or mount is safety. The Kanto TTS series comes with a security tether that can attach to your wall and keep your screen from falling forward in case something bumps into it.

Overall, tabletop mounts like the Kanto TTS series is a great drill-free TV mount option for setting up your TV on top of large furniture.

Kanto Table Mount & TV Setup Ideas

MINIMALIST

Another way to mount a TV without drilling is to place the TV on a media cabinet or table with the screen raised and console or cable box directly underneath.

FRENCH STYLE

Pair your TV setup with a decor that features natural and muted colors, extravagant lighting, and a rustic touch. Being able to easily adjust and angle your screen just right is crucial for pulling off this aesthetic so that the screen can stand out from its surroundings. For inspiration click here.

CONFERENCE ROOM

If you have a conference room table against the wall, a mounted TV screen is a great end cap that everyone around the table will be able to see for presentations and remote sessions.

Mobile TV Stands

For maximum TV mounting flexibility, you'll want to roll with mobile TV stands like the Kanto rolling TV carts(opens in a new tab).

Mobile TV mounts allow you to mount your TV anywhere in a room without relying on furniture to prop it up. Compared to tabletop mounts, these mobile floor stands offer more height adjustment options and take up less space, which make them ideal for small spaces or mounting your TV in a corner.

With the additional benefit of being on wheels, you can easily use one TV in multiple rooms. The wheels easily lock into place whenever you need your TV stand to stay put, and with a low profile design, these mounts can fit through doorways and tight spaces, and even slide under the bases of beds or other furniture.

TV MOUNT WITH SHELVES

If you have devices to connect to your TV such as DVD players or video game consoles, consider models that come with shelves for AV equipment(opens in a new tab). The shelves on all the models in the Kanto MTM series are built to handle the weight of common AV equipment, and you can adjust the height of the shelves so that your equipment can always stay connected to your screen.

TV MOUNT WITH WEBCAM SHELF

The shelf at the top of the cart is designed to support web cameras, making the MTM series mounts great tools for hosting virtual meetings, classes, and events. With a large screen, hosts can see many participants clearly in one place, and the vantage point of the webcam mount enables participants to see the host clearly.

These mobile TV stands are especially popular in classrooms, offices, and trade shows, but proving equally useful in all sorts of ways.

Kanto Rolling TV Cart Home Setup Ideas

For home setups, the mount blends right in with furniture or decorations you might want to put in front of it while keeping your screen well-positioned and secure. The low-profile design of the Kanto MTM series allows you plenty of flexibility to mount your TV near, behind, or around many types of furniture.

  • Bedroom Space Saver: Bedroom furniture can be very sturdy, but it's not designed to bear the weight and size of a TV Screen. The Kanto mobile mounts are a much safer solution that can also take up less space than furniture that could support TV screen mounts.
  • Rec Room: Floor mounts are great for rec rooms because they can fit in corners or tight spaces and put the screen right in front of a treadmill or exercise bike.
  • Outdoor Patio: Wheel your screen out for cookouts, parties, or an outdoor movie night. Keep in mind that Kanto rolling TV carts are not weather-resistant, so it would be best not to leave them outdoors, but it's easy enough to wheel them back inside for storage or indoor use.
  • Gaming Setup: Create a simple but sturdy setup for gaming with a Kanto MTM82PL. The AV shelf included with this model can support your gaming console, and you can adjust the height of your screen so that everyone in the room has a great view of the action.

Mobile TV Mount Setup Ideas For Businesses and Schools

  • One Screen, One Mount, Many Classrooms: One of the reasons Kanto mobile TV mounts are so popular in schools is that they enable resource sharing. Instead of trying to decide which room gets the smartboard, with a mount like the Kanto MTM82PL, any room can have a smartboard.
