Where to Place and How to Conceal Your TV

July 31, 2019

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.

In the sunroom of another lovely Muskoka home, the tv is stored behind two farmhouse inspired doors, all above the mantel.

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!
