TV may possibly not be the key device of the house anymore, but it's pretty popular still, and so requires a bit more love than the usual simple console. Besides, with the present day units growing in size by the season, it produces a cool focal point in the living room, which you can only make better with your TV wall design ideas.
Storage-Friendly TV Wall Design Ideas
Storage is a crucial part of any living space. Modest square footage and consumer culture do not match well, and also stuff scattered all over the interior doesn't flatter it. A TV wall designed to carry a couple of pounds of clutter is a better idea than the usual small entertainment unit built only 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 the same time – you develop a convenient spot for some of your most prized possessions and you are able to frame your TV with shelves which are the ideal size.
