Help designing around a Wall Mounted TV
slenoueApril 12, 2012
I have a wall that is 18 feet long and 9 feet tall. I'm going to mount a 46 inch TV on it and I'm lost as to how to decorate around it. I'm not a fan of shelves, so I'm at a loss for ideas! Anyone have suggestions? I'm a minimalist, so I like the clean look, but I think just the TV and a small entertainment center underneath will be too minimal. Help!!!

What else is going into the room, and what will be its primary purpose?
Can you post some photos?

It's going to be a Great Room where all the entertaining and living will be. I have attached a copy of our floor plan. It's the wall that borders the Master bedroom and WIC. Does this help?

I think you want to avoid making the entire room about watching the tv, since there will be times when it will not be the main focus. You have enough room to make a seating / watching area around the tv, and them maybe a game table near the windows to the right of the bar as you face it.
I would put a sofa or sectional facing the tv, and a pair of chairs at a right angle to it facing out the window. This will let you get a lamp table to the right of the tv, again as you face it, and perhaps another one to the left, if a sectional leg goes infront of the windows. A big coffee table or generous ottoman would complete this group. Keep everything fairly low, so that people sitting at the bar can see the tv too if they want. If you don't want to do a sectional, a loveseat with its back to the windows, and another lamp table at that left-hand corner would work.

You mentioned you didn't like book shelves but this is a modern take to shelving. I think you need a bit of weight on the wall so it doesn't look barren. Look past the clutter if you can.
