We don't like how the TV is currently blocking the built in shelves and seems kind of out of place. My idea was to build a white shelving unit on the ground that touches the fireplace edge and wall and curves at the corner. We could then put the TV on the corner part (still slightly blocking the shelves). I am not entirely sold on the idea and would love any other suggestions that anyone might have. We don't want the TV above the fireplace though. Thanks :)

Remove shelving units and have TV hung on the wall to the right of the fireplace.

Thanks for the idea. What do you think about hiding it above the fireplace like this pic? And do I need to move the clock to eye level also? Sorry for the low quality and sideways pic. Appreciate your input.

You'll tire of having to open to watch and eventually, you'll just leave it open all the time.

Love these barn doors above the fireplace, what a clever solution.

We don't watch much TV. In my current home we only have a TV in the basement which rarely gets turned on.. I'm hoping we keep it closed most of the time..

You'll need to get cable and electric outlet over the fireplace and if you have a cable box that needs to go somewhere. Retrofitting all that above existing FP isn't easy.

Ok. Thanks Judy. I guess we'll have to get someone in there to price it out to see if its doable. I guess it's not as simple as a solution as I hoped:/.
