Help ! where to keep my TV?

December 31, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hello. I have a big problem here.. My husband and I really enjoy watching TV. This new home we moving in soon , is great open concept house, but i see no good place for a TV. Doesn't need to be a huge one , but a decent size one . 1) Above fire place does not have enough room. 2) I hate the idea of blocking the window. 3) I would like to be able to watch TV if im in a kitchen. 4 ) The stairway wall in the entrance does not look a great idea, been so close o the entrance.

How would you do it

Google search "tv on easel"...can move it around (limited to cords and plugs) but might be something to consider

Can't see what is to the left of the FP or how large that wall is, but I would do a complete built-in wall around it with a spot for the TV too. Put it on a swivel so you can turn it to see from the kitchen.

Just put up a wall mount bracket where ever you want. It takes up as little as 2 feet and they have cantilever arms too.

Great ideas everyone. i take all the ideas you can give :)
i hate taking the main focal point in a room and put a ugly screen on top or next to it.. i dont know.. it may be my solution . or a lower tv stand and put it next to the window.. i'll have nice shades to block the lighting when wanted.. i need to move in first to get more feel of the room.

That wall on each side of the FP aren't to big.. on the right opens up to the dining room.

The above is a great idea.

But just to "think tank" here...if you aren't formal dining room sort of folks, and you wouldn't mind losing that small window in the dining room, then..
Open up the wall in the kitchen, the one that has the stove, and place a built in across, along that wall that has the window currently to hold the tv. Place a sectional along the wall facing tv. May not even be enough room for this, but could possibly make a cozy tv nook.

Your huge living room could easily hold your dining table also.

I love your Idea, really great.. but im so happy i have finally a dining room to invite my big Portuguese family :) I hate to lose that room like this.. its crazy my stress over this, cause we also have a media room or "theater" above the garage.. but that will only be for our " movie nights" and its a bit out of the way, pass breezeway ... . keep those great ideas coming :) loving it !! Im terrible imagining dec, and passing through plain walls..
