Moving to a new apartment or home renovation is an opportunity to reorganize the space and implement ideas that will make the familiar interior more modern. Nowadays, some people try to hide the TV by using lockers or just a modest set of furniture to put the TV on. If you are one of the people who want to make the TV receiver a coherent element of interior design, we bring you a handful of practical ideas.
The TV set in a modern apartment
A black TV set on a white wall does not impress guests anymore, so even if we decided on an aesthetic Scandinavian style, it is worth paying attention to details. Especially in such a modest interior, the TV should be mounted close to the wall, and the frame should be invisible. This solution will give the impression that the TV is levitating. The 3D structural panels placed on the entire wall or its fragment will ensure a tasteful and minimalist arrangement. If we focus on energetic decor, colorful paint on the wall behind the TV will be better. Matte, dark paint will visually hide the TV receiver, so if you want to show off a modern TV to guests, it is better to choose a bold color or outline a part of the wall behind the device.
TV mount and the type of wall
A brick wall or a brick imitation mural is an interesting and recently fashionable background for a TV set. Seemingly bruised red brick or stone on the wall is a strong accent that brings to mind an industrial loft. An alternative is a plank wall or panels which allow you to hide the cables easily. It is better to cover only one wall of the room with this type of material so that the effect is not overwhelming. A plasterboard wall is characterized by a lower strength. When deciding on a drywall partition, make sure that the TV is not too heavy. When using an unusual material on the wall behind the TV, it is worth ensuring a stable installation of the device. Regardless of whether we prefer watching TV from the couch or, for example, playing on the console while sitting on the floor, we can adjust the height of the TV using a solid elevator that will ensure comfort and safety. For large and heavy televisions best suited to night tournaments, our rugged motorized lift for heavy TV screen A-2 is the best choice.
The TV on the bookshelf
A home library as a backdrop for a TV set? It is a great solution for a small apartment and an idea for a functional living room. Books above or under the TV will create an eclectic style, combining modernity with tradition. Asymmetrical shelves will prevent the TV from looking like a „black hole” against your favorite book collection. The visual effect can also be balanced by a decorative shelf under the TV or interesting accessories, such as candles and knick-knacks. This is how our favorite entertainment zone can be created, in front of which we will be happy to sit down on long evenings for a rest with Netflix or a book.
Composition of paintings on the wall with a TV set
An elegant, glamour-style interior does not have to exclude a TV set. A decorative frame that clings to the TV or leaves a space through which on Ambilight models the glow is visible will suggest that the TV monitor is the centerpiece of the home gallery. This impression will be enhanced by a well-chosen screensaver that matches the background. During the visit of guests, we can display photos from the holidays on a TV – such a composition will definitely make an unforgettable impression.
TV and fireplace
Quite a controversial topic is the TV on the wall above the fireplace. This solution has its opponents, and the main argument is the high temperature generated by the home hearth. Nowadays, a sufficient distance and effective wall insulation are often enough for such a neighborhood to be completely safe. It is worth remembering that symmetry is not necessary here – the TV set directly above the fireplace looks like an altar, and the simultaneous viewing of two moving images strains your eyes and distracts your attention. For those who are afraid of the temperature of the TV receiver, an interesting novelty is an electric fireplace or a bio-fireplace – both emit less heat than a traditional fireplace and are more ecological. As a compromise, you can display a fire recording on the screen – a screensaver or a movie will create a realistic fireplace on the TV, and our rest zone will gain a warm atmosphere.
Ceiling projector lift – like in a real movie theater
We cannot always watch the latest premieres on the big screen – cool evenings, social isolation, or working late are a perfect arguments to install a home cinema system in your own living room. Such a zone begs for a large TV with good resolution. Simple elements in an industrial style cause optical screen magnification. For the old cinema lovers, a projector can be a dream come true. It can hide in the wall with one click of the remote control, without disturbing the interior climate. Our projector lift WP-560 will help with the implementation of such an unusual plan.
Solutions for a small room
Sometimes you have to compromise when planning a renovation, but a small apartment does not preclude having a big TV. In small spaces, ergonomics is the most important, so placing the TV in the corner of the room can provide the greatest distance when viewing the TV. We can choose a corner cabinet for the device, which will help in the practical management of the corner. Regardless of what solution we choose, it is worth taking care of our comfort and space organization according to your preferences.
