TV may not be the main device of the home anymore, but it's pretty popular still, and so requires a bit more love than a simple console. Besides, with the present day units growing in dimensions by the year, it creates a cool focal point in the family room, which you can only make better with one of these TV wall design ideas.
Storage-Friendly TV Wall Design Ideas
Storage is an essential part of any living space. Modest square footage and consumer culture do not match well, and also stuff scattered throughout the interior doesn't flatter it. A TV wall designed to put up several pounds of clutter is a better idea than a small entertainment unit built just for display.
These days TVs are often found on walls, but when it comes to deciding how you want to create the perfect TV wall, it can be challenging to pick the right spot and the proper layout. Here are 8 different ways you can create a TV wall that makes for a stylish and comfortable viewing experience.
1. Surround It With Storage
Surrounding your television with built-in storage solves two problems at once – you develop a convenient location for some of your most prized possessions and you can frame your TV with shelves that are just the right size.

3. Recess it to the wall
Setting your TV right to the wall and making it lie flush with the remaining wall creates a figure around the TV that makes it appear to be it may almost be a bit of art. Placing it slightly deeper to the wall also makes the TV less obvious when it isn't turned on, taking the attention away from the TV and letting another details in the area stand out more.

It keeps the look simple and eliminates distractions while you're watching shows and movies.

5. Place it beside the fireplace
Somewhere to think about when positioning your TV on the wall is close to the fire. If the two are the same height it makes an interesting continuous look and makes the room more interesting.
Having your TV close to the fireplace also helps to produce a warm atmosphere that's great for enjoying a video while cuddled on the couch.
6. Place it above the fireplace
Similar to placing your TV close to the fireplace, placing it above the fire is another way to produce a cozy environment while watching TV. It creates an even more dimensional try looking in the area, makes the room seem taller, and makes enjoying your entertainment in warmth very much easier.

8. Conceal it
Perhaps you don't want your TV to function as centre of attention in your space. If this is the case, hang it in a spot where it can simply be covered, either with a sliding door, a bit of art, or even a curtain. This enables your TV to be accessed easily but keeps it out of sight during almost all of that time period when it isn't being used.
