A beautiful TV can be complicated to decorate around. Not only do you need to think about the aesthetics of the room, but you need to worry about the TV placement.
Is it placed too high up where you have to strain your neck to see the next big game? Or, on the other hand, is the area around your TV cluttered, leaving you with a ton of things to focus on?
Are you thinking of remodeling your TV area? We have a few tips and tricks for things you can do to decorate the space around your TV and every furniture solution you need to make the living room of your dreams become a reality.
Think About TV Placement
Your TV is expensive and deserves to be the focal point of the space you’ve decided to put it in. We have seen far too many situations where friends and customers place their TVs very high up on a wall or in a corner.
While it might seem like an aesthetic choice, placing the TV too high up can mean an uncomfortable viewing experience, you and your guests would have to strain your necks to watch the next blockbuster film on movie night.
Instead, consider putting your TV closer to eye level with your furniture and ask yourself these questions:
- Does your living room have low couches?
- Does your living room feature bar-style seating?
- But what if your only place to put a TV is up high on a wall?
- What if the only place you can put a TV won’t work well with your current furniture?
Keeping these things in mind can mean placing your TV somewhere that’ll ensure comfort for you and your guests. To better accommodate tough spaces, consider a TV wall mount that tilts, allowing you to angle the TV lower for the best viewing angle.
Create a Complete Look
Your TV is something that you and your family will spend quite a bit of time looking at. As such, you want to ensure your TV space is something nice to see for hours on end.
You should aim to avoid unnecessary clutter around your TV stand. While it seems like an easy and convenient place to drop your wallet when you get home, it becomes nothing but a distraction when trying to use your TV.
One thing you can do is to arrange photographs around the TV space. Pictures of your family and timeless moments can be an excellent way to make the wall around your TV a bit more engaging to look at.
You also want to try and find organized solutions to all of the things running to your TV. While your gaming systems might get used every day, they may not match well with the rest of your living room’s decor, making them unsightly at the very least around your TV.
Not only are the bulky systems and piles of DVDs unsightly, but they also create countless cords which can appear distracting around your TV as well. One great way to hide all of the cables behind your TV yet still ensure room to display every graduation photo is through a Cantilever TV Stand.
Even better, it allows you to keep your gaming systems and movies hidden in the closed cabinets, preventing your living space from appearing like a cluttered mess.
You Don’t Need A Media Stand
While many of us think that a media stand is synonymous with a television, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
- Maybe you want to display your TV over a fireplace.
- Maybe you want to display your TV in a way where an entertainment stand would be in the way.
- Maybe, you simply don’t have enough space for another bulky piece of furniture.
Minimalist design is all the rage right now, and you can save a ton of space and open up a room by removing it. You can now have space for more oversized couches, kids’ toys, and other items you’d like in your living room.
You could display floating shelves under your TV with potted plants or decor if you feel the need to fill what might be seen as “empty” space.
