TV may not be the main device of the house 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 proportions by the year, it makes for a very good focal point in the family room, which you may only make smarter with these TV wall design ideas.
Storage-Friendly TV Wall Design Ideas
Storage is a crucial section of any living space. Modest square footage and consumer culture don't match well, and also stuff scattered all around the interior doesn't flatter it. A TV wall designed to carry a couple of pounds of clutter is just a better idea than a 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
