That is what I did. I also the outline of a 42" and 40" to judge the aspect. The 50" size is the business.Make a mock up 50" from newspaper or plain paper and stick it where the tv will go. Sit back and judge for yourself
If you are watching HD tv bluray,dvd and gaming 50" would be great at 7ft.Poor quality SD may look a bit ropey but I would still have a 50" over a 42".I'm after a new tv and plan to mount it in a false wall around my chimney breast.
Currently we site 7' away from the chimney.
I'd love a 50", but fear it would be too big as we're too close.
What are your opinions?
Should I settle for a 42"?
