Where to Place and How to Conceal Your TV


Where to Place and How to Conceal Your TV

Where to put, and really hide, the television? With 119.9 million tv homes in the U.S. alone (source: https://tinyurl.com/y4hdy2so), it's no wonder that as a designer this topic surfaces regularly with our clients. Over the years, we've learned a few tricks on how to effectively and beautifully conceal this "essential eyesore." Check out a few ways to hide your entertainment with the below examples.

Where to Place and How to Conceal Your TV:

1.) Hide away the television when it's not in use with functioning doors.

2.) Create a tv disapearing act by suspending art on a pivoting rod.

3.) Let the television do its own concealing.

1.) Hide away the television when it's not in use with functioning doors.

In this Muskoka Living Interiors' design, the tv is placed above the fireplace and hidden behind two bifold doors.

The tv is tucked away behind the double cabinet doors on the left of the fireplace in our Elegant Retrohemian project. The doors open and then recess back into the sides of the cabinet's interior. Lastly, the tv can be pulled forward and turned in whichever direction for our clients' optimal viewing pleasure.

I must admit that this is one of the chicest ways (that I've seen) to hide a television. I commend Melanie Turner Interiors for effectively delivering both form and function with her artwork placement. Simply amazing!

By turning the pivoting rod towards the adjacent wall, the tv becomes visible and usable again. Mission accomplished.

3.) Let the tv do its own concealing.

Who's heard of the Samsung Frame tv? Many designers have raved about this innovative solution to the "where to place the tv" debacle. This smart television is exactly that - brilliant! The sensors in the tv read the lighting of the room so that the screen brightness mimics it. All you have to do is select a piece of art to display on the screen when the tv isn't in use. Bravo, Samsung!
