Calculating Optimum Distance from Sofa to TV

tv

As a rough guide if you multiply the viewing distance (how far away you’ll be watching your TV from) in feet by 7.5 then you should get an approximate answer in Inches. So if you’re three feet away you should go for something like a 22″ inch screen.

Screen Size  Ideal Viewing Distance 
17 – 26 Inches 4 – 6 ft (1.2 – 1.8m)
27 – 38 Inches 7 – 9 ft (2.1 – 2.7m)
39 – 46 Inches 10 – 11 (3 – 3.4m)
47 – 55 Inches 12 – 13ft (3.7 – 4m)
60 – 80 Inches 14 – 17ft (4.2 – 5.2m)
80 Inches Or More At least 17ft (5.2m)
