How to Decorate with a Flat Screen TV

For the first time in my adult life I have a TV in the house. We bought it so that I can use it to exercise, because heavens know I wasn’t being as productive in the great outdoors. Part of the reason I’ve been hesitant to get one is because, although flat screens are much more nimble than the old clunkers, I still find them super awkward and so, so black. In my dreams, it’s in a part of the house that is not so front and center, but we don’t have that luxury in our current apartment. Alternatively, it’s in a cupboard that can be raised and lowered like an elevator. But sadly, that’s not in the cards still. So, here are some inoffensive ways to display your flat screen TV.
One of my favorite ways to display a flat screen TV is to camouflage it in a gallery wall (above). Placed with other pieces of art, it no longer sticks out like a sore thumb. It becomes art!
This interior places the flat screen smack dab in the middle of two beautiful display cases. It plays with the symmetry of the space and it works well with the other colors in the room.
I love the idea of placing the flat screen TV on an artist’s easel. It’s a great way to juxtapose the new TV with the old vibe of the easel. I’m putting this on my list of options!
- This rustic cabin hides the flat screen TV in a cupboard above the fireplace. So clever and beautiful!
- Here’s another camouflage technique. Interspersed with lovely frames, the TV is concealed and inoffensive.
- You can create your own cupboard and place a canvas on top to conceal it. I love that it acts as artwork and it’s completely functional at the same time!
