TV might not be the main device of the house anymore, but it's pretty popular still, and so requires a tad bit more love when compared to a simple console. Besides, with the current units growing in proportions by the year, it makes for a cool focal point in the family room, which you may only make better with your 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 all around the interior doesn't flatter it. A TV wall designed to carry a few pounds of clutter is just a better idea when compared to a small entertainment unit built simply 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 spot for some of your most prized possessions and you are able to frame your TV with shelves that are the ideal size.

3. Recess it in to the wall
Setting your TV right in to the wall and rendering it lie flush with the remaining portion of the wall creates a figure around the TV that makes it look like it might almost be an item of art. Placing it slightly deeper in to the wall also makes the TV less obvious when it isn't fired up, taking the interest from the TV and letting the other details in the space stand out more.

4. Make It The Centre Of Attention
A small wall display in that the TV is the main focus of the space and is either surrounded by only some tiny objects or by nothing at all is a superb way to hold your TV on the wall without creating an unproductive display. It keeps the design simple and eliminates distractions while you're watching shows and movies.

5. Place it beside the fireplace
Somewhere to take into account when positioning your TV on the wall is alongside the fire. If the 2 are exactly the same height it makes an appealing continuous look and makes the room more interesting.
Having your TV alongside the fireplace also helps to create a warm atmosphere that's ideal for enjoying a film while cuddled through to the couch.
6. Place it above the fireplace
Similar to placing your TV alongside the fireplace, placing it above the fire is another way to create a cozy environment while watching TV. It generates a more dimensional look in the space, helps make the room seem taller, and makes enjoying your entertainment in warmth that much easier.

8. Conceal it
Maybe 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 certainly be covered, either by way of a sliding door, an item of art, or a curtain. This enables your TV to be accessed easily but keeps it out of sight during most of times when it isn't being used.
