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 than the usual simple console. Besides, with the modern units growing in size by the season, it produces a cool focal point in the family area, which you can only make smarter with one of these 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 don't match well, and also stuff scattered throughout the interior doesn't flatter it. A TV wall designed to put up a few pounds of clutter is really 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 simultaneously – you create a convenient area for some of one's most prized possessions and you are able to frame your TV with shelves which can be just the right size.

3. Recess it in to the wall
Setting your TV right in to the wall and rendering it lie flush with the rest of the wall creates a body across the TV that makes it look like it could almost be a piece of art. Placing it slightly deeper in to the wall also makes the TV less obvious when it isn't turned on, taking the interest away from the TV and letting one other details in the space stand out more.

5. Place it beside the fireplace
Somewhere to think about when positioning your TV on the wall is alongside the fire. If both are exactly the same height it makes a fascinating continuous look and makes the area more interesting.
Having your TV alongside the fireplace also helps to make a warm atmosphere that's perfect for enjoying a movie while cuddled on the couch.

If this is the case, hang it in a spot where it can certainly be covered, either with a sliding door, a piece of art, or perhaps a curtain. This enables your TV to be accessed easily but keeps it out of sight during the majority of that time period when it isn't being used.
