Design Dilemma

too much space above my tv on 20+ foot wall.

eaielloJanuary 25, 2013
Just installed tv and floating shelves. What should I put above? Or move shelves?

Good start. Continue all the way up with the shelves. Accent very minimally.

I agree and bring the plant on the right side of the shelves.

I ethnic tapestry or modern quilt would be good on the wall. High shelves will collect dust that will be hard to reach. Paint the heat register the same color as the wall to help it blend in more.

The TV looks high to me (along with the shelves). It should be placed so the center of the screen is where your eyes settle naturally on the wall when seated without lifting or lowering your chin or your eyes, just looking straight ahead. I suspect that will be at least 6" lower. Probably more but i but can't tell from this photo. I like the idea of the top shelves being closer together, above the top of the TV. Remember that you don't want them to look like objects placed on them are encroaching on the ceiling.

These appear to be nice shelves and look nice with the case piece below.
