Mounting a TV on the wall can be a no-brainer. It can tie the room together and add to the entertainment value of the room while taking up minimum space. In fact, it’s such an effective way to go that your only questions are what to do around the television. What are some living room TV wall design ideas that can help you tie the room together with the theme of your house? Here are a few things to consider as you design the layout of your living room!
For both a modern (and practical) look, more and more people these days are turning to extra-wide shelving below their mounted television. This shelving is a great way to make use of the otherwise empty space below the television, and it can provide a nice complement to the angular look of the television set. You can put books on the shelves, vases, plants, speakers, and a wide range of Bluetooth options, depending on the living room design you’re working toward.
Sometimes, the look of a television on an empty wall can create a sparse, austere look. That can be great if it’s what you’re looking for. But if you want something a little more “homey” and welcoming, you might want to think about adding another layer. One great living room TV wall design ideas is to cut wood pieces into a pallet for mounting against the wall. Then use that pallet as a backdrop for the television mounting itself. This provides a nice, natural looking touch to your living room and TV space.
The television is usually the center of any wall it’s mounted to. That’s an important consideration for design. If you want to put up décor around the area of your TV to fill in the negative space that the wall creates, think symmetrically. Anything you put on the right side of the wall will need to be visually balanced with something on the left side of the wall—and vice versa. If you put up pictures around the television, don’t put them only in one spot. Make sure that you fill the space symmetrically to give it an even visual weight.
Want a “cozy” feeling—something you might feel in a den or a private area? Then think about adding shelving or other storage above the television set. This gives the TV the feeling of a fireplace while adding to the storage capacity and practicality of your room.
Of course, to enjoy your new TV setup, you’ll want a great couch to go with it. Consider Swift’s high quality, ready-to-assemble sofas including:
