Irmentrud Vreni Fireplace January 25th, 2018
I love a good fireplace. If you are a member of the always-cold club you know what I’m talking about. Sitting in front of a roaring fire is my idea of cozy. Whether you love the smell and crackle of a wood-burning fireplace or the ease of a gas-burning one choosing the right facing is a big decision.

Avoid architectural features. The flue can also bend and be rerouted to avoid architectural features such as overhangs. Again (this can't be stressed enough) follow the building codes and manufacturer specifications when doing any chimney installation.

On specialized media cabinets each piece is designed for functionality. A grill below the TV is situated for a five-channel home-theater audio system; this is where the center speaker sits. Using a screen rather than wood allows sound to flow unobstructed.

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.

Whether you choose to have them over and under or side by side some of these winning fireplace and television combinations could help you find a truly harmonious look.
