Now That's Entertainment
The television can be such a bone of contention in some families - no, I’m not talking about how much you watch! It’s whether to leave the TV covered or uncovered. Even with today’s flatscreen models, the TV can look like a big black hole in the room when it isn’t turned on. But we have a lot of options today to combat that! Let’s take a look!
Make It Part of the Design
In the coastal home I designed above, I balanced the TV and the fireplace over a stone slab to make a sculptural statement. I love how it balances the room and looks aesthetically pleasing rather than distracting!
The Art of Deception
So why am I showing you a framed piece of art when we’re talking TVs? That IS a TV! It’s the Samsung Frame, a smart TV that goes into Art Mode with stunning framed looks whenever you aren’t watching your favorite shows. And you can choose the art that’s shown so it works with your decor.
Hide It Glamorously
I love the way CeCe Barfield Thompson hid the television in her client’s home! A sliding mirrored panel can come down to hide the TV, or go up when it’s time to relax and watch some shows.
Pick a Flexible Option
Television design is constantly changing, so I try not to let my clients invest in a huge piece of furniture built just for a specific TV. Instead, go for a stylish design - like the entertainment center above - that can be used for another purpose once you’ve decided you need a different TV style!
Speaking of style, which way do YOU prefer to go? Do you like to hide that TV or let it be a part of the room’s decor? Let me know!
