Gallery walls are an enduring trend so why not take advantage of this style and hide your TV in plain sight among a crowd of paintings or framed photos?

Storage ottomans are virtually upholstered boxes with padded lids. The lids are hinged and open up to provide storage space that can be used in a number of ways. For example an ottoman can be used as a coffee table with a sofa bed and also to store the bedding for when the sofa is needed as a bed. It can be used as a piano stool storing sheet music and other items. They can be used in children's rooms for toys computer or video games and controllers and in your bedroom as a handy seat for dressing while storing bedding spare pillows or your nightclothes. These are just examples - an ottoman can be used to store whatever you need it to.

Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!

Consider having your screen mounted on the wall instead of perched on top of a cabinet. This way the screen will be less obvious and the space can be used like a typical living room with the option of enjoying a superior home cinema experience when you have a film to watch.
