What can I put under Wall Tv
1patch
January 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The room is 13.6 wide and 14.8 long. It opens to the kitchen, French door to dinning room two windows and and sliding glass door to outside,basically no wall space. My BIG problem is what to put under TV,if furniture what color, or should I just take the TV off the wall.

Just moved and am Stuck on what to do to make this room comfortable,do I need another coffee table? Any help would be great, thank you.

Hi, 1patch. We think the lighter wood complements your floor well, but the space may be more comfortable with a large ottoman (http://www.atgstores.com/ottomans_1006.html?linkLoc=topnav) that serves both seating areas and a fuller TV stand (http://www.atgstores.com/tv-stands_1076.html) that has holes in the back to more easily store your components out of sight. We've provided a few images to give you ideas and hope this helps. Have a great weekend!

A big chest that could fit under there and fill it with books or DVDs

The room is very light in feeling. It needs to be grounded. I don't love the paint color. It washes out your furniture. Have your thought about painting? I am thinking more of a gray/blue. I would use a dark wood cabinet and spray paint the two chairs in a darker almost chocholate finish and get new cushions or new chairs. Get a patterned rug and drapes to frame the windows. Is that the only wall for the tv? Can you take a picture of the whole room with all the walls.

I agree with a large TV console and a large ottoman or coffee table.

Yes, a bit larger console and some color/pattern would cozy up the space. Something like this for curtains, and a couple pillows for the sofa.

Thank you everyone, I am trying to work this furniture in a 1920 house, this was how it looked in a small area off the kitchen in our other house. The two love seats are a a check pattern blue and yellow gold. the pine piece is now on a side wall in the family room. Question : I was planning on getting the same blue area rug, what do you think? Also thinking of similar window treatment for the sliding glass door in our now family room, new patterened pillows, and possible built in recessed bookcases around the french door, what do you think? Someone suggested to get a distressed Black piece larger to go under the TV. just not sure of that color, really need help in that area.

P.S. Darzy, I like the fabric you suggested as well, do you think the chair cushions would work with this fabric as well? Many Many thanks

You should lower the TV to eye level.

There are a few things that you can do to really change the look and feel of the room. The first thing that I would do is to find a patterned rug that you love. I don't know if you like color and I hope you do! You have a good neutral base with your furniture but it needs pops of color! So get the rug as your starting point. Pull colors out of the rug to decorate with. Get some throw pillows to match, art work and accessories. Don't be afraid to go a little crazy with the throw pillows, make it fun! You should get a new tv console. If that's not in your budget, paint the one you have using a color from your rug. Add some window treatments and you will have a new room for a small amount of money! I hope this helps. Oh I forgot, if budget allows it wouldn't hurt to paint the room. You can always use Sherwin Williams Latte, a great neutral that is a little darker that what you currently have, or if you are brave a color from your rug! Happy decorating.

It would depend on the rug. Not trying to sell you anything but you can look at my store on my website, there are tons of rugs www.barbaragilbertinteriors.com click on store. Find one you like and pull some of the colors out of it. I'll be glad to reply if you show me some rugs! Have fun with this, make it your room, the rug will change the entire look and is a great starting point in pulling your room together!

hi 1patch. You don't have to find a tv console. How about a small chest of drawers? Something like this. But, if you can DIY..a dresser at yard sale or Craigslist that you can paint would look nice too.
I think the fabric I suggested would work with your cushions. But, I'm reconsidering since you have a lot of windows so it may be too "busy". I like Barbara Gilbert Interiors idea of a graphic rug, then windows treatments to coordinate.

Took advise on dresser, found the base of a hutch, owner of the antiques store,husband adjusted the drawers, so they open with a hinge, to house the receiver and DVD. GREAT suggestion !!! Need help with rug and fabric for the windows that will go with the fabric I have on the chairs and loveseats. Have two windows on each side of TV and a slider going out to the back yard.There are french doors going to the dining room and a large opening going to the kitchen. The room is small, not much wall space. As always your feedback is appreciated.
