There are plenty of options if you want to mount that flat-panel screen in the middle of your wall or over a fireplace to save on space, but what about if you want it in the corner of a room?
Peerless Mounts has solved this problem with its direct-corner flat-panel mounting systems. These will serve your screens of sizes 32 to 60 inches, so about the only thing you’ll have to worry about is keeping the dust away.
The lineup includes the CM50 for 32-to-50-inch flat panels ($265) and CM60 for 40-to-60-inch varieties ($315), which both need a compatible Peerless flat or tilt wall mount purchased separately (hence the “system”).
There’s a pullout swivel version as well for TVs 32-to-58 inches, the CM850 for $658.
If you want to mount your cable box or DVD player, you can add the ACC324 accessory shelf for $99.
Depending on your screen size, you can even attach speakers for a real seamless looking entertainment solution that will pass any WAF (wife-acceptance factor) test with flying colors. Speaking of colors, the mounts come in black or silver. Now the question is, what will you do with that empty wall space you were going to use?
