While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all it is meant to be seen at least some of the time) keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles making this technique doubly effective.
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.
It's tempting to try to repurpose a piece of vintage furniture or use a shelving unit buffet or console table as a media cabinet but there is a big difference between a standard cabinet and a media console.
Hide your projector. Another way to have the technology of our dreams without compromising on style is by using a motorized projector lift. It’s even possible to activate the lift from an app on your smartphone. A projector can be concealed in the ceiling or in a tabletop. Then whenever you want to watch a film your living room or kitchen can be transformed into your own private cinema.
Having nice and decent storage in your house would solve your long time problem of where to properly keep your files at. There are times that you just put your CDs and DVDs in any place that you first see. This kind of behavior often makes your files vulnerable to physical harm such as scratches moist and even to food particles. Using media storage you would definitely know where to locate your files conveniently.
This works especially well if some of the pieces are as large or even larger than the TV. The unusual square piece in the upper left draws attention away from the TV and the other little pieces keep the eye moving around.
