TV might not be the key 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 dimensions by the entire year, it produces a cool focal point in the family room, which you can only make better with your TV wall design ideas.
Storage-Friendly TV Wall Design Ideas
Storage is an essential section of any living space. Modest square footage and consumer culture do not match well, and also stuff scattered throughout the interior doesn't flatter it. A TV wall designed to carry several pounds of clutter is a better idea than the usual 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 simultaneously – you produce a convenient location for some of your most prized possessions and you can frame your TV with shelves which can be the ideal size.

3. Recess it to the wall
Setting your TV right to the wall and making it lie flush with the rest of the wall creates a figure around the TV that means it is seem like it may almost be an item of art. Placing it slightly deeper to the wall also makes the TV less obvious when it isn't turned on, taking the eye far from the TV and letting the other details in the room stick out more.

5. Place it next to the fireplace
Somewhere to consider when positioning your TV on the wall is next to the fire. If the 2 are exactly the same height it creates a fascinating continuous look and makes the space more interesting.
Having your TV next to the fireplace also helps to produce a warm atmosphere that's perfect for enjoying a video while cuddled up on the couch.

If that's the case, hang it in a spot where it can easily be covered, either by way of a sliding door, an item of art, or even a curtain. This allows your TV to be accessed easily but keeps it out of sight during most of the time when it isn't being used.
