Kitchen TV help!
February 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Can you help me minimize the TV on this wall? Gallery ideas, open shelves.....? Any suggestions appreciated!

Is it possible to use a more simple mounting bracket so the TV doesn't stick out as much ?

If you google tv's with picture frames, around it, that might be one solution.

I am guessing the bracket you chose gives the TV the ability to swivel, correct? You could do a "box" around the TV (to help disguise it) with a shelf above. It should not impede the function of the bracket to do it's job, only give it the look of being part of the design..... I would use wood with a similar finish to the cabinets to help achieve that goal.

I vote for a floating shelf above - ala ikea lack in white. It will fit with the classic and clean look you have going. Set it close, no more than 3" above (right above outlet trim). Set a row of colorful ceramic canisters below on the counter against the wall - perhaps in a bright accent color. The depth of the shelf (centered over countertop below - not over tv) and canisters will balance the depth of the tv. Shelf is perfect for something pretty plus a few cookbooks between neat bookends.

I had a very similar kitchen setup and what I did, which I would highly recommend if your home / budget allows, is notch the wall and set the TV in a finished box behind the drywall, allowing the screen to sit flush. I would keep it on a swivel mount as well, allowing you to pull it out and turn. The look is very clean and practical.
