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.

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.

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.

Media armoires worked great back in the day of analog TVs. Close the doors to hide the electronics and open them to watch. Those were simpler times. But today flat-panel TVs are put on display more often than not. Mounting on walls or being set on top of consoles can actually complicate matters since remote controls typically use infrared signals to communicate with the devices. The little red light needs to be pointed directly at the component to change the channel turn up the audio or pause the movie. A solid surface blocks this communication.
