How to Choose the Right TV Lift for Your Home

The weight of a TV lift and other concealment products is perhaps one of the key design components that is very overlooked, yet important to understand.


It’s no doubt that TV Lift have revolutionized the way we watch TV. When you are not watching your favorite sitcom, movie or game, you can hide it in plain sight. So, how do you choose a TV lift that will suit your need?

Flexibility in Design

More and more people are living in one-person households, but families still make up the bulk of the population, and they are likely to have multiple TVs. Even (or perhaps especially) if they only have one TV, the TV lift they buy needs to suit everybody’s needs and abilities. The lift should therefore be flexible enough to allow for the heights everybody needs, and also flexible enough that it can be put in a variety of places in the home, depending on the space availability.


The weight of a TV lift and other concealment products is perhaps one of the key design components that is very overlooked, yet important to understand.

There are some lifts that weigh several hundred pounds, yet are only lifting a 45-pound TV.

Weight complicates a design when the actual lifting assembly is excessively heavy. This weight adds to the total weight that must be moved along with the TV or device that is being lifted. As a result, the device needs more power to lift, requiring a larger and noisier motor. This is why use of aluminum materials, which are much stronger for their weight, is something to look for wherever possible.


Any TV lift you buy should be of the highest quality materials you can afford, to ensure that you will get your money’s worth out of it. Linear actuators in general are quite dependable, since they are specifically designed to have fewer moving parts, and therefore break less easily. Quality design means that a TV will be able to take a lot of strain and use before it needs to be replaced, something which is very useful within a home. If a TV lift is designed to either slot into the wall, or hide under the floor when not in use, it is particularly important to use good quality materials. Using good quality materials means less chance of them breaking, since both the wall and the floor are awkward spaces to work in.


The primary reason for the use of a TV lift is to create more space in the home, so it is a good idea to look for one which is quite small and compact. This is where lifts which can be incorporated directly into another piece of furniture come in handy, as it means that the space can serve double duty, as somewhere to use as a table (for example) during the day, and for holding the TV at night. One which takes up a minimum of space can also be used inside walls and floors, which further eliminates the need for day to day space taken up by a TV.

Operation Quality

One feature of home automation has always been the need to fit in with the home environment. This has meant that the linear actuators used in moving parts have had to sacrifice something in terms of power and overall performance, but they have fulfilled their duty in making the home more relaxing and luxurious for those who live there. Ideally your TV lift should fit in with these expectations, being quiet, operating smoothly, and generally being as dependable as possible.
