VonHaus TV Bracket and Floating Shelf – Review

As part of my 2019 Bucket List, it was a point that Lewis’s room would need some new furniture. We mostly got that point covered, but we still wanted to make a minor change or two. Then it came about that Lewis was getting ready to attend secondary school so suddenly we changed our focus slightly. Wanting to change his room from a young boys room, filled with toys to an older boys room with technology and space to relax. We needed to act quickly.

For Christmas, Lewis was gifted a new TV for his bedroom, but we soon discovered his TV was going to be too big for his TV unit. We needed to get it up off the unit and onto the wall. Thankfully, with the help of the team at VonHaus, we have managed to do that perfectly.

TV Bracket

For our review, we received this 23-56inch Cantilever TV Bracket. I wanted a TV bracket that would turn whilst mounted on the wall. This way Lewis could twist his TV so that he can watch it from his desk whilst also then tilting the TV to watch from his bed. Giving an all-round flexible TV viewing experience for him.

Now I will admit, I am absolutely useless when it comes to DIY. With that in mind, I left the setting up of the bracket to my husband, Sam and my son, Lewis. I went out for an evening and came back to a TV bracket all constructed and some notes that my husband would like to point out.

Included in the box is all you need to construct the TV bracket, except for the tools. For this Sam used his own wall drill, spirit level, pencil and screwdriver.

Following the instructions, Sam and Lewis were able to connect the fixing brackets to the TV prior to setting up the wall installation.

One major positive Sam pointed out to me here is that the wall plugs provided with this set up were spot on for the job. In the past when we’ve purchased wall brackets the wall plugs were pretty useless. But the wall plugs provided with this kit are heavy-duty and perfect for use in our brick wall (and even a plasterboard wall!). Within no time the main bracket was on the wall and ready for the installation of the TV.

Lewis’s TV is a 42inch TV, which is mid-range for what this TV bracket allows and it works wonderfully. Recommended for TVs up to 56inch and with a load capacity of up to 45kg, its certainly strong enough to hold most large TVs of today.

Floating Shelf

To help finish off the new set up in Lewis’s room, we also received the Floating TV Shelf from VonHaus. Again, during the same installation of the TV bracket, Sam installed the floating shelf too.

Included in all the box is all the items you require to set up your floating shelf. Additional tools you need are manual tools such as wall drill etc.

Following the instruction booklet. Sam prepared the wall, installed the mounting block, set up the glass shelf and fixed it into place. The shelf was set up in no time and ready for use.

The shelf itself is a large strengthened tempered glass shelf, measuring at 380 mm x 300 mm x 5 mm. Capable of a weight load of 8kg, which is perfect for holding Lewis’s games consoles. What’s more important is that it complements Lewis’s new TV set up wonderfully.

Verdict

Overall we are absolutely made up with the TV bracket and floating shelf set up. Having these in place has helped us create some more space in Lewis’s bedroom. This will allow for his new desk to be put in place. Giving him some working space in peace for when he starts at secondary school in September.
