How to Decorate Around a TV

Even though TVs are flatter than they used to be and don’t take up as much space, they can still be an eyesore in an otherwise attractive room. That large, black box often seems out of place in rooms with serene coastal colors and charm. When it comes time to decorate one of the custom homes in Jacksonville FL, here are some ideas on how to incorporate your television into your decor.

If you really don’t want to see the television unless it’s in use, a television armoire is your best choice. Choose one in weathered or whitewashed wood if you’re aiming for a coastal design style. The armoires designed for televisions are ideal, because they can also hold cable boxes and include drawers and shelves for DVDs, video games, and other television-related paraphernalia, keeping it all out of sight.

If you don’t want to use a large piece of furniture to hold your TV, but still want it hidden away, you can create a decorative screen for it. Since today’s flat-screen TVs can be hung on the wall, it is possible to add shutters to hide the screen when not in use. For real decorative appeal, create shutters out of hinged picture frames.

If you’re not concerned about hiding your TV, but still want it to blend into the room’s decor, consider hanging it on the wall and framing it. Choose a frame that complements the rest of the room’s design scheme. One of the benefits of custom homes in Jacksonville FL, such as those built by Glenn Layton, is that you can work with a design team to find the perfect colors and materials for your new home.

Alternatively, rather than framing the television, simply incorporate it into a gallery wall. A collection of multi-size prints, painting, photos, and mirrors can be grouped around a wall-mounted television to help it blend into the setting. Even if the TV is on a stand, pictures can still be arranged around it to create the gallery wall effect.

Of course, you don’t have to hide the television. Let it stand as a focal point by creating a background specifically for it. Whether it’s a colorful painted backdrop or some artfully reclaimed pallet boards turned into a frame, there are plenty of ways of incorporating your television into the room’s décor.
