There are certain rooms in the house where we spend most of our waking time in. Living room happens to be one of them, so it is crucial to decorate it in a sleek, stylish manner. With a large room, this is hardly ever the problem; with a small one, though, it usually is. However, with a little bit of imagination, it is always possible to make the most out of your space. A wall fixed TV over the built-in fireplace is a great idea that solves the challenge of limited living room space. And here are some helpful suggestions placing a TV stand above your fireplace:
Don’t hang it too high
First things first — a TV should not hang too high. Ideally, the middle of the screen should be just above your eye level, so consider this in your calculations. Here, it is not important if you are working with a decorative fireplace or an actual one, as long as the piece is not very high.
Use frames for a more stylish effect
Another helpful suggestion on placing a TV stand above your fireplace is to consider framing the TV. There are plenty of stylish TV framing ideas that will make your arrangement look logical and consistent — you just have to find the one that is in perfect tune with your room decoration.
Consider shelving the fireplace
Shelving the fireplace — whether on both sides or just one of them — is another idea that will give your living room a unique charm of its own. Avoid bulky designs and go with compact shelves. Use for storing minor trinkets, thematic accessories — anything goes as long as it is small and sweet.
Paint the area behind the screen into a brighter colour
Yet another helpful suggestion that will bring a cheerful, stylish mood into your room is to paint the wall behind the TV into a brighter shade. This will draw additional attention to your fireplace and will also create an illusion of extra depth in the room.
Maximise lighting in the area
Lighting is another means of showcasing your sleek TV and fireplace area. Go with a line of modest, but effective, recessed lights in the ceiling, or include a couple of slim wall lights to make the picture complete.
Consider the optimal distance from your soft furniture
Sometimes, hanging a TV above the fireplace will also presuppose moving your soft furniture, which can lead to a whole set of serious rearrangement. So, you might want to consider a couple of possible interior layout plans with a sofa moved closer to the fireplace — and pause for a moment to think if any of those plans will actually work in your room.
Finally, do not discard classic TV stands so quickly — sometimes (depending on your room shape, size, and style, of course) they offer a more functional and reasonable solution on decorating a living room. Plus, there are so many fantastic, striking models in stores that choosing a perfect fit for your interior type will be a problem
