If you’re planning to buy a new TV, it’s important to know the exact size of your existing TV beforehand so that you can make sure it will fit in the space where it will be placed. This can be tricky if you don’t have any measuring tape with you or if the brand of your TV is unknown – fortunately, there are several methods that you can use to measure your TV without needing any additional tools. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through how to measure your TV and make sure that your new purchase will be the perfect size for your needs!
1. Measure from Corner to Corner
One of the easiest and most accurate ways of measuring your TV (provided that its shape is either square or rectangular) is by measuring from corner to corner in both directions. For example, if the width across one side of the TV is 28 inches then be sure to also measure from the opposite side; this should give you a rough idea about whether or not it’s indeed an accurately measured rectangle/square. Additionally, some TVs may have slightly curved edges which could cause discrepancies when using this method – so double-check before making any assumptions!
2. Use Your Remote
Another great way to get an approximate measurement of your television set is by using the remote control that came with it (if it still works). Most remotes will have a “size” button near its power switch which when pressed should give us an approximation of our screen size – usually giving us both width & height measurements. Again though, always keep in mind that these numbers may not necessarily correspond perfectly with our actual measurements as there may be slight variations due to things like stretching/shrinking as well as hardware margins/spaces surrounding each edge!
3. Double Check Before Buying
Finally, once we think we know what size our current set is then it would be wise to double-check one last time before proceeding with purchasing another one – just so we are sure that everything fits into our desired space! And now, once all those steps have been completed we can rest easy knowing that we won’t need to worry about exchanging any parts nor having trouble fitting them into place once the delivery arrives!
And now all that’s left for us is to enjoy watching our newly purchased TV – but before doing so make sure that every other element such as size & type of furniture (e.g., stands), location & distance between screen/seating areas are taken into account too for us achieve optimal viewing experiences as well! And with that out of way… sit back and relax while watching all those wonderful shows & movies we love – just like nothing ever happened before!
