Leave the tile above the tv or take it down?

We bought this house in AZ 3 yrs ago and it has slate on the fireplace in the kitchen-backsplash and this above the TV. To me it seams as if they had some extra slate and threw it up there. Any ideas please help? My husband likes it!!

I would take it out and paint the air vents the same color as wall. Add a beautiful piece of art work.

-- Lovely room! However, I think you are right - surplus tile! Remove it because it is interruptive - looks out of place. Try covering them up with a sheet and see if you miss having them up there. Are they adhered to the wall or just sitting there? You might be able to find another spot for them in your home.

Agee with grobby - paint the vents to camouflage them. The center vent might be needed tho and that would be a problem as far as hanging artwork over it. . .

remove them and if you wish to reuse them, the cover of your sidetable could be an option

Another vote to remove them. Just tell your husband who likes the tiles there that eventually you will gut the whole little niche of all the shelves so that you can fit a giant flat screen tv in that area haha.... He will have those tiles down in no time ! Best of luck.

HI -- I think you are right -- someone didn't want to throw out the extra tiles . Remove the tiles above the TV and do it when hubby is not home . He can like the ones that are still there .Maybe think about having some smoked mirror in that space instead , it will expand the look in the room without being to obvious and I think the hubby would like it .
