I want to mount my tv in my kitchen using the space between my upper kitchen cabinets but there aren't any studs close to the area that where I want to mount. Is there another option for safely mounting the tv?

Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the home improvement field for 20 years. I will be happy to help you today. What size tv are you mounting?

Thank you. 22 inch.

The mount should still hit at least one stud. If not then toggle bolts anchors will be sufficient for that tv to mount to the drywall. Once the mount is anchored flush with the wall the surface of the drywall will be enough to distribute the weight of the tv and almost certainly one of the anchor holes will line up with one stud. click here These may not be the correct size but basically you would just need a bolt that has a head big enough to not pull through the hole in the mount. Something very similar to these will be absolutely sufficient. Three or four will be enough. Too many will only weaken the drywall area if they are not spaced out. Have at least 4 or 5 inches between the bolts.
