Based on it's placement (living room, not a dedicated theater room) and you not sounding like an enthusiast (I don't mean that in a bad way), just buy the largest TV you can afford from any of the major brands like Samsung, LG, Vizio, etc. Paying $1000 more for 10% better blacks or slight differences in contrast ratios won't even be visible to you, especially in that viewing environment, so it's mostly pointless IMO.
Bang for the buck pick, 65" 4K $830:
They had a 55" there that they cleared out at $399 a while ago. My parents picked one up. Decent picture for the money, and anything calibrated is more than good enough for the average user.
50" version for $410:
Note that both TV's don't have any smart features, which is what I personally prefer.

btw: bedrooms are horrible places for TVs as the blue light fucks up with melatonin levels and secretion, which will affect your quality of sleep.
My TV runs all night sometimes because I pass out watching it and won't realize till I wake up in the morning, so YMMV?
