To take a less hypermodern approach place a TV in a full bookshelf system (rather than free-floating minimalist shelves) to create a more transitional look. Encasing the TV in custom framing helps it blend even further into the casework so only the essential screen is visible (and not shiny brand names). Keep in mind that a frame will block the remote receiver so you may need a device to reroute the signal from a receiver tucked on a nearby shelf.
Tuck away your TV. While a drop-down projector screen is great it doesn’t get much more impressive than an entire drop-down TV. No matter its weight or angle an experienced professional can mount a television wherever you want it. This is another option for those who want to make a seamless transition from dinner party to film night. When the after-dinner conversation reaches a natural lull you can adjourn to the living room and relax with the latest Hollywood hit or cult classic.
Whether a TV is placed in the center of a wall or not it will still be a large punch of black in your color scheme. You can try to ignore it (which won’t make it go away) or you can embrace it adding black in other items to help balance out the look.
Integrate it into your living room. Most people don’t quite have the space for a designated room for their home theater but integrating similar features into a living room can create a comparable cinematic experience. You will need to be extra careful to avoid compromising the existing style of your space though.
Again asymmetry can be your friend here as placing the TV off to one side in a wide bookcase or pair of cases will keep it from feeling like the visual focal point. Depending on the furniture arrangement this can also leave a TV well-positioned to be watched from a sectional sofa or favorite chair even if it’s off-center from some of the other seats.
Put speakers in the ceiling. You can have an entire sound system completely hidden from view with ceiling-integrated speakers. This is an excellent way to have high-fidelity audio and free up space in your home to get creative with your design. When it’s time to watch a film speakers integrated into the ceiling make viewers feel as though they are right in the middle of the action — perfect for a nail-biting thriller or spellbinding fantasy flick.
