TV may not be the key device of your home 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 dimensions by the entire year, it creates an awesome focal point in the family area, which you can only make smarter 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 don't 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 really 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 integrated storage solves two problems at once – you produce a convenient spot for some of your most prized possessions and you can frame your TV with shelves which are the ideal size.

Framing your TV with a surround makes your TV stand out while also making it look like it's wherever it belongs.

3. Recess it in to the wall
Setting your TV right in to the wall and making it lie flush with the remaining portion of the wall creates a shape round the TV that makes it look like it may almost be a piece of art. Placing it slightly deeper in to the wall also makes the TV less obvious when it isn't switched on, taking the eye from the TV and letting another details in the space stand out more.

4. Make It The Centre Of Attention
A minor wall display in that the TV is the key focus of the space and is either surrounded by just a few tiny objects or by nothing at all is a good way to hold your TV on the wall without creating a distracting display. It keeps the style simple and eliminates distractions while you're watching shows and movies.

5. Stick it near the fireplace
Somewhere to consider when positioning your TV on the wall is close to the fire. If the two are exactly 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 ideal for enjoying a video while cuddled on the couch.
6. Stick it above the fireplace
Much like placing your TV close to the fireplace, placing it above the fire is another way to produce a cozy environment while watching TV. It makes a more dimensional try the space, makes the room seem taller, and makes enjoying your entertainment in warmth that much easier.

Hanging a TV among pieces of art helps conceal your TV and makes a gallery wall look more filled in. The TV and the sound bar both enhance the gallery wall display and make the display look more intentional.

8. Conceal it
Maybe you don't want your TV to be the centre of attention in your space. If this is the case, hang it in a spot where it can simply be covered, either by a sliding door, a piece of art, or even a curtain. This allows 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.
