    Maybe it's just an optical illusion, but the TV looks to be mounted a little high up on the wall for my taste.
    Got Dayens?

    Yeah it is, but that’s so if I get a bigger TV it will still fit centered on the wall. The plan is to eventually get a ~50-60” in the coming years. Prob a Visio or Insignia model.... or get a better TV downstairs and move my Panasonic upstairs.

    The mount also comes out and tilts down too so you can get it closer.
