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.
The media storage is available in so many options such as wooden chest towers with wicker baskets truck cabinets chiffoniers wooden bookcases and hanging cabinets. It is entirely up to you to choose one that fits your needs. It doesn't have to be expensive; as long as you are comfortable with it and it blends well in your specific space. Whether you room has modern look eclectic mood or an classic aesthetic take the time to choose audio and media storage cabinets that work best with your chosen look instead of completely against it.
So often TVs are installed far too high as people tend to place them where they look best from a standing position forgetting that they will actually be viewed while sitting down. Placing your TV at a proper low angle helps take your eyes off it the rest of the time especially if you tuck it under some shelves painted in a fun hue. Dark floors or a dark rug will help it visually sink away into the ground where it won’t be noticed until it’s TV time.
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.
Keep the screen hidden too. It’s not only the projector that can be concealed but the screen itself. With a motorized projector lift some ceiling-integrated speakers and a drop-down projector screen the transition from living room to home cinema can be as smooth as it is impressive. The space freed up while the screen isn’t in use can be used to display artwork or any other more aesthetically pleasing pieces.
Of all the built-ins you can add a media wall is one of the most useful. It helps to tame the clutter that springs up around a TV and when paired with bookshelves provides ample opportunity to display mementos and books (reinforcing the notion that you do more than sit in front of the TV all day).While there are an infinite number of ways to arrange a media wall experts recommend dividing the unit into a base and an upper cabinet to help break up the unit’s mass and to accommodate varying depths of storage. The base can be fitted with drawers or doors to conceal electronics and accessories.
