Do you need help finding the perfect TV size for your 10×10 room? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Luckily, the organizations like SMPTE have viewing distance tables & formulas which we can use to find the right TV size for any room size.
And the process is really simple, just 3 steps!
Here’s How to Find the Right TV Size for 10×10 Room
1- First, plan your room layout and furniture placement, and identify the TV location and seating place.
2- With a measuring tape, measure the distance from your TV location (wall or stand) and seating place (couch or bed). For instance, in my case, it was 6 feet (72 inches)
3- Now divide your available viewing distance (mine was 72 inches) by 1.6235 using this formula or look into the viewing distance table. Now confirm the TV size from the Table. For instance, for 72 inches, the Table shows a 43-inches TV.
1-SMPTE Viewing Distance Formula
Viewing Distance in (inches)/ 1.6235= TV Size (inches)
72 inches/ 1.6235= 44 Inches approx. (43-inches Answer)
2- Panasonic Viewing Distance Formula
Viewing Distance in (inches)/ 1.5= TV Size (inches)
72 inches/ 1.6235= 48 Inches approx. (50-inches Answer)
So, the answer is a 43-50 inches TV if you can maintain 6 feet viewing distnace.

Recommended TV Size For 10×10 Feet Room
In my experience, after your planning your room layout, furniture and TV location. You can easily maintain a viewing distance of 6 feet in a 10×10 room, and based on SMPTE recommendations, you can choose TV sizes like 43-50 inches.
The key is to measure the distance from the TV Stand/wall location to your front couch. Select 50-inch TV for 7 feet viewing distance and 43-inch TV size if the available distance in your room is 6 feet.
For example, if your room layout allows you to maintain 4.5 feet distance from the TV place, you should look for a recommended TV size of 4.5 feet on the table, which is a 32-inch TV.
Key Factors That Determine the Right TV Size For Your Room
3 key factors will decide your TV size:
1-Your room layout & furniture placement
Your room layout planning and furniture placement will decide where you will install the TV and how much viewing distance you will have from your TV location to your sitting place.
2-Optimal Viewing Distance For TV Size
For the best viewing experience, we need to be at a specific distance from the screen. SMPTE & THX have given some simple formulas to calculate viewing distance for your TV. We will use these formulas to determine the TV size for our room.
SMPTE Formula: TV Size (Diagonal) x 1.6= Viewing Distance
THX Formula: TV Size Diagonal x 1.2= Viewing Distance
3-Personal Preferences (including Budget)
As always, what matters the most is you. Your preferences, your experiences and your budget. You may prefer a 43-inch or 50-inch TV based on your budget or liking.
