Adara Noya Media Storage January 20th, 2018
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.

Ledgestone. This sleek floor-to-ceiling fireplace is constructed from one of the most popular materials currently on the market. Small strips of stone are applied vertically to look like tiny ledges creating a soft contemporary feel. With no hearth and mantel the firebox floats inside the stone almost like artwork.

Don’t let the white fool you; this upholstered cube from Ballard Designs is anything but basic or boring. And it’s actually available in myriad colors and patterns.

Prefabricated travertine or limestone. For a very traditional look consider a prefabricated fireplace of travertine or limestone. This look requires a mason experienced with framing as well as installation. Heavier pieces may need to be reinforced. $7.000 to $10.000 for prefabricated pieces shipping (which can be high due to weight and crating) and installation.

A rectangular ottoman fits in well with an L-shape sectional. The longer width allows more people to use it. If you need storage choose one with a hollow center.

Three’s company. Some may have difficulty combining two main design elements but this homeowner managed to do three. This asymmetrical layout mixes the size of all three pieces (television fireplace and artwork) comfortably into one design by maximizing the height and balancing the width of the wall. When adding artwork above the fireplace do your research before purchasing to make sure it can withstand the heat output.

It saves you money- DVD and CDs even blank ones cost money. The use of a media storage cabinet in your home or small business can help eliminate scratched broke misplaced lost or even stolen media from hitting you in the wallet. Simply keeping your media in one place helps to accomplish this goal and advanced cabinet features such as child locks or even deadbolts can help to give added protection.

Keep the glass box glass. On the outside the metal chimney remains the vertical totem it has always been. But now the glass wall can span up over and in front of the chimney. There's no need to have a chimney that breaks up and separates the elevation into pieces.
