We just upgraded the size of our living room tv. We are apartment renters, so having a smaller tv before wasn’t a big deal, but since Cyber Monday had some nice discounts, we went larger.
My dad helped us mount it, and we got in a debate over what we thought the average size most Americans have. He said 50″ was average, while I thought it was closer to the low 40s.
Google says the average tv is 37″ now.
Out of curiosity, how big is your living room tv? I’d love to see the results of a sample poll.
Also, in your opinion, when does a t.v. become too big?

Living room is 55 or 59, I can’t remember. The one is our bedroom is 42″, and our guest room has a really old 22″ or so inch. [when I say really old, I mean when flat screens first came out.. it is a flat screen but has a HUGE back on it].

Ours is 47″ right now. I’d go larger if I could afford it
I don’t think there’s such a thing as a tv that’s too big lol.

Our living room tv is 65″. I think it helps that we have a decent sized living room. I wouldn’t want to go ang bigger in that sized room though.

SprinkleDonut: I think it’s 46″, my husband had it before we met. We don’t pay for cable so it’s used mostly for Netflix and HBOGo. Cable is ridiculously expensive…I do lament my lack of FoodNetwork and TLC though.

I have no idea, but I think its pretty average sized, so maybe 37?”
I’m probably one of the only people that hates giant tvs. They give me a headache!

Oh, it also helped that our living room is very long, it’s like 14×25 so we kind of needed something big.

We dont have a tv / cable connection and have always just watched movies / Hulu / Netflix on a laptop. But I got a crazy deal on a 65″ tv on craigslist last year!!! It’s hidden away in our den because it’s so embarrassingly big, haha. I personally hate living rooms that are dominated by a tv. So I voted “we dont have a living room tv”. But holy cow it’s awesome for watching movies and Hulu in the den.

We just recently bought a 65 inch curved tv and it is AWESOME. We originally wanted the 80″ one but it was almost 10K for it so we decided it was a bit too much to spend on it.
But we love big high quality TVs. The amazing picture quality makes you feel like you’re looking out the window or seeing things in-person (we LOVE watching food shows and travel stuff on there). It sounds crazy but we also have a 55″ tv in our bedroom too, but our master bedroom is quite large so the screen is a perfect size. But we can also use our tv monitor as an extended computer screen so it’s fantastic to look at photos together and/or surf the web on a lazy Sunday 🙂

Shina: OMG those curved TVs! Fiance and I stood there mesmerized by them for a good 10 mins in Best Buy the other day. They’re incredible.
Our living room TV is 42″ I think. We have another one in the bedroom that we barely use that’s 20″.

We just renovated our house, making it very open concept, and put in a 10.5 ft kitchen island;
we wanted the space to be living room/kitchen since we are big on entertaining, which made us buy a 60in for above our fireplace; the room is prettttty big so we also went larger so we could see it while cooking at the new island haha.

I should have said we don’t have a TV in the living room. My answer was for our family room. That set is over 60 inches. I don’t actually know anyone who has a TV in their living room, as defined by a space separate from the family room.

SprinkleDonut: the game living room for the kids has a 50″, the second living room has 60″. The bedrooms are all around 40″.

60″+? Geez, I’ll be right over! Ours had to fit into an armoir, so it’s less than 40.” My husband falls asleep in front of any size, though.
