How to handle TV wall in Family Room with huge fireplace?
December 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi There - We just moved into our new (1978) ranch style home and have a design dilemma we are hoping to get some ideas on. We have a huge, remodeled kitching/living room that we will spend most of our time in. The issue is the TV setup isn't exactly perfect. Logically it would go on the wall with the fireplace as it feels like the natural place for the TV, however the fireplace is huge masonry wood burning fireplace and its completely not feasible to put a tv on it (and it would look odd). The only other place to put it is on a side wall where we can still arrange the furniture to be somewhat normal in the living space by not blocking the fireplace, etc. Question is, we wanted to make the TV wall/unit/etc look nice and fit with the living room without just plopping it on a stand. Any thoughts on what might look really nice given this setup? Also to note, the living room couch is being replaced with the Restoration Hardware lancaster (bromton cocoa leather) couch and a RH rustic coffee table to give an idea on style.
