60-Inch TV Dimensions: How Wide and How Tall Is It?

Key Points

  • Finding a TV that is exactly 60 inches can be challenging, as the most common sizes are around 30, 45, 55, 65, and up.
  • The advertised display size of a TV is measured diagonally across the screen and is typically slightly smaller than the advertised size due to the bezel or frame around the display.
  • To determine the right TV size, consider the dimensions of the room, the size of the surfaces, and the recommended viewing distance, which is typically double the display size.
  • A 60-inch TV is a good balance between a big display and usability, but it may not be suitable for smaller rooms or bedrooms.

It’s safe to say that kitting out your home with a brand-new TV is a pretty exciting moment these days. What’s not as exciting is trying to figure out the best model. Even once you’ve made your mind up between QLED, OLED, and Smart TVs, you still need to determine what the best size is for your space. What do TV dimensions really mean, and how do they translate into reality? We’re here to answer these questions. Although TVs can get huge these days, a 60-inch model is still quite big. Read on to find out if the dimensions of a 60-inch TV are right for you.

Why Is It Hard to Find a 60-Inch TV?

Truth be told, it isn’t the easiest task to find a TV that’s exactly 60 inches. The most common TV sizes tend to hover around 30”, 45”, 55”, 65”, and up. However, you can find some models that come pretty close to the 60-inch mark. And because sizes close to this tend to be rarer, they also tend to be in less demand (meaning lower prices).

How Is the Display Size Measured?

You’d be forgiven for being confused at how TV manufacturers come up with the sizes they market. Essentially, a TV is rectangular, so the width and height aren’t too difficult to figure out. The width is simply the horizontal measurement, and the height is the vertical. Therefore, the width is the greater of the two measurements. To make things simpler, most TVs indicate these with a “W” and “H” respectively. You can see a visualization of TV dimensions in the image below.

Display Size

You may think the size advertised refers to the width of the TV. But manufacturers actually use the diagonal across the screen to measure this. Although there tend to be some small differences in the width and height of various models, the display size is more consistent.

It’s also fairly typical for the actual display size to be around half an inch smaller than the advertised size. Often, this is due to the bezel or frame around the display. Not all TVs these days have a frame, so it pays to take a close look at the detailed specifications of the model you’re interested in. And when it comes to displaying your TV on a stand or mounting to the wall, the dimensions become all the more critical.

Don’t Forget About Depth

The width, height, weight, and display size are certainly important factors to consider when buying a TV. However, the depth deserves some consideration as well. The advertised depth tends to refer to the thickness of the TV, either with or without the stand.

Usually, both of these measurements are given in the specs (in our table above, we’ve listed the dimensions with the stand included). Some manufacturers also give two depth measurements, depending on whether it’s for the thinnest point (typically the display) or the thickest (usually where the ports are located).

If you intend to wall-mount your TV, a thinner model will sit closer to the wall. Generally, 60-inch TVs have a depth within the region of one to three inches without a stand. The type of mount you use also factors into how far the TV sits off the wall, and can easily add a few extra inches to this distance.

Using a Stand

Opting to mount your TV on a stand is a bit less of a process than mounting on the wall. All you have to do is carefully slot your TV in and the stand will hold it securely in position. Stands will add some extra width and depth to your TV, however. If you’re going to use one, be sure to measure the dimensions of the surface where you’re placing your TV. If your TV comes with a stand included, then it’s a smart idea to use this rather than buying a universal stand. You might be able to save a few inches in terms of thickness with a thinner stand, but you really don’t want your valuable TV falling on the floor. Since most stands come in at around 13 inches, we’d recommend a surface of about twice this width to give you some wiggle room on either side.

What Size TV Is Right for Me?

This is an age-old question, and one that’s pretty tricky to answer definitively. But you can narrow down your options by considering the dimensions of your room (especially if you’re going to wall-mount) and the size of your surfaces (if you’re going to use a stand). Don’t worry, though; we have a couple extra tricks to give you a better idea. You can use some tape (painter’s tape is best for this) to mark out the dimensions of the TV on your wall or surface to see if it’s a good fit.

Another top tip is to consider the viewing distance. In general, you can double the display size to get the optimal viewing distance. For example, if you have a TV with a display size of 60 inches, then the recommended viewing distance would be around 120 inches (or 10 feet) away from the screen. This is a quick way to size up your entertainment room and decide on a rough TV size.

It also pays to think about the weight of the TV. This is particularly true if you plan on securing it to the wall. While you can technically mount on drywall up to around 100 pounds, drywall is still a fairly brittle material. It’s best to reinforce it with extra support.

60-Inch TV Dimensions: Wrapping Up

All in all, choosing the right TV size can seem difficult at first. A 60-inch TV strikes a good balance between a big display and usability. The display size is around 58 to 59 inches. You’ll have an easier time finding a slightly larger or smaller TV, though, as 60 is an uncommon size. This size is likely unsuitable for a smaller room or bedroom, and most suited to a large indoor entertainment area. But compared to larger TVs, models around 60 inches have more versatility. As long as your seating area is around 10 feet from the wall, you should be able to fit in a 60-inch TV comfortably without much trouble.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is 60 inches a good size for a TV?

A 60-inch TV is still on the larger side but has more flexibility compared to bigger models. You may be happier with a smaller or larger model, as personal preference comes into play when thinking about TV size. However, bigger models tend to command higher prices, so it’s a good idea to consider how important screen size is to you as well as your budget.

How much do 60-inch TVs cost?

Prices can vary a lot, depending on the smart features that are on offer and the quality of the display. OLED TVs tend to be more expensive than QLED models, and both are more costly than LED TVs. Generally speaking, models around 60 inches can be anywhere from $400 to approaching $1000, mostly depending on the display technology and how recently they were manufactured. It’s sensible to keep an eye out for discounts.

Is a 60-inch TV too big for my room?

Generally, you want a viewing distance of twice the display size of your TV. This equates to 10 feet with a 60-inch TV. As such, this size isn’t really designed for small rooms or bedrooms and would be more suited to a larger indoor entertainment area or outdoor space. It’s a good idea to map out the dimensions on your wall or entertainment center, and see if it’s a comfortable fit for you.

Can I mount a TV by myself?

We would never recommend mounting a TV by yourself, and especially not one of this size or greater. The width and height make it awkward for one person to carry, and the weight can be significant in some of these models. The last thing you want is to drop and damage your TV or hurt yourself.

There are two sets of measurements listed, why is this?

TV measurements that are given could include or exclude the stand they come with. Some manufacturers advertise both or only one of these. As such, you may see a slight difference in the measurements, as the stands tend to add a few inches to the depth and around 10 inches to the width.
