You recently rewarded yourself with a new LED TV and you're excited to mount it on your wall. After spending so much on your shiny new must-have, you might be wondering how to best do it without ruining your home's overall look—after all, no one wants to watch TV with the wires and cables exposed. If you love hanging out on Pinterest and Google, you'll notice that most of the pegs you've saved do not show any wires at all! Have you ever wondered what goes behind a TV wall and how the wires are neatly hidden?

It's actually easier said than done. To hide all the cords, you need to cut two vertically aligned holes on your drywall and let them run behind it. However, without the proper tools and experience, there might be mistakes and extra costs. The best solution? Hiring a pro to help you with the electrical and carpentry work. Read on to find out more about how you can mount your TV, the tools you'll be needing, and other important considerations as well.
