Thinking about creating a home theater space in your home? Have you thought about how much space you may need to have for optimal viewing distance? Depending on the size of your TV you may need more space than you think to have the optimal view of the screen. For HDTVs, a good practice is to make the viewing distance 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 times the size of the screen diagonal.

Screen SizeViewing distance range for 1080p HDTV’s
40″5.0-8.3 feet
43″5.4-9 feet
50″6.3-10.4 feet
55″6.9-11.5 feet
60″7.5-12.5 feet
65″8.1-13.5 feet
70″8.75-14.6 feet
75″9.4-15.6 feet
80″10.0-16.7 feet
85″10.6-17.7 feet
