What Houzz contributors are saying:
Avoid the TV spatWhen it comes to televisions, invariably one person wants a huge 60-incher and the other would prefer a dainty model half that size. A 45in TV is the obvious compromise, but there are plenty of other options, too. Disguise it in a cabinet with sliding doors or create a recess in the chimney breast above your fireplace so the TV can be hidden by a picture when not in use.Discover more creative ways to blend your TV into your scheme
Don’t let TV take over your living roomI love sitting down and watching a good film or gripping drama, but I don’t want my TV, or any technology for that matter, monopolising my living space. So, don’t automatically angle all your seating towards your flatscreen. Instead, opt for a more communal layout, with sofas facing each other to promote good conversation. Try hiding your TV behind sliding doors (or even a set of curtains) to make it magically disappear for the evening.TELL US…Do you have any home habits you’d like to break?
