You're ready to purchase a new television, but aside from other considerations, you are anxious about how your new high-definition television will fit into your room. The height of rooms can also factor into the right size for a television. For example, a large television can be appropriate for small rooms with high ceilings. Of course, you should also consider the size of furniture when considering which television you will purchase.

Measure the width and height of the room. Often, we have a habit of underestimating the size of our living spaces, and a quick measurement can give you a starting point for choosing a television. It's important that you also take the perpendicular width (from corner to corner, across the room), because this is usually the most important factor in room size.
Review the weight specifications of your TV stand or entertainment centre. If your TV weighs too much, you might have to buy new furniture or install it on the wall. You will also need to find out what kind of depth it can support.
Consider how a standard high-definition television appears up close. Many of these televisions do not have conspicuous pixels even when you sit within a few feet of the television. This is one consideration for how you manage the space in the room. Most television designers have a formula for ideal sitting distance. If you have 4 feet of viewing distance, you can have a maximum of 32 inches. On the opposite end of the spectrum, with 14 feet of viewing distance, you can have a maximum of 112 inches.
Take a close look at the dimensions of your television. Some televisions save precious space with flat-screens or minimal frame around the screen. Measure the dimensions of several televisions to get a definite sense of the best choice. Keep in mind the viewing-distance-to-screen-size ratio.
