Can anyone advise what would be an affordable way to wall mount a TV like the below picture? I would like to hire someone to do this for me as I have no experience/equipement for this sort of this. It is for an apartment.

From the images it doesn't even appear to be a corner mount TV bracket, just a normal articulated unit. Under $50.


You can get some brackets with two plates that are designed for corner installation (not next to a window). I used two on a project where we had to attach TVs as close as possible to a curved wall (both concave and convex sides). I got those from TradeTested.

Most electricians or handy man can do this sort of work, they will buy a bracket to suit your TV and then you may need to decide how you want the cabling done. An electrician can run the cables and power inside the wall to give neat finish where as a handy man might just use cable ducting to hide the cables like in your picture.

That looks like a normal bracket put up ridiculously high up in the corner, with some poorly installed trunking to hold the cables.



When a TV is that small then the length of some arm brackets means that it can be just screwed to the corner studs and still extend enough to be parallel to the wall like that.

This the one?


You get a basic bracket and screw it to the wall.  Needs to be near a stud/dwang to get some solid bite/purchase.


Real cheap ones won't tilt, only swing.  Not a fan of mounting TV's that high personally, as you tend to get a sore neck watching them.




Think about cabling if you want it to look nice.  Looks like they've just used standard capping up the corner of the wall in this pic, nothing fancy like running the cables inside the wall.


You'll need power, aerial, AV/hdmi if being fed from some other device.

cheapest option I found on tradme, $16 + shipping


as other have said, nothing much to it, just a basic bracket.




as for the cabling in the wall.  Ive yet to find a sparky who does this well, they tend to need to go through a nog, and usually cut the plasterboard to drill a hole in the nog requring you to plaster/paint that cutout.


There are tools that let you drill a hole in the nog in the wall, but I've never met a sparky with said tool...




but to hanging a bracket, you need a drill and a stud finder (or just knock on the wall...).  very very very basic.
