Houzz is the new way to design your home.
SMM media room
mounting, probably built in speakers.
love the look, nice fireplace tho.
again almost, not enough storage or space for components
storage couches, do not put fireplace under electronics
nice idea for pendants
Where could I put it?
If you'd like surround sound, buy the speaker system you want and then run the wires, rather than the other way around. This way you'll know how many speaker wires to run and whether any parts of the system, such as a subwoofer, will need a dedicated outlet.
It is standard to install an access panel behind tub plumbing. If you can, do this for your TV installation as well. If you need to run wires into a wall in the future and the wall is open now, put a PVC pipe in the wall so it's easier to drop those wires into the basement or your access panel.
TV sizes change, and they don't usually get smaller. If you are going to build a shelving unit around the TV, consider leaving extra space around the television for future upgrades.

Absolutely hate the bulge look and it is totally unnecessary w/ flat screens.
Not over fireplace, comfy room though. Before planning your installation, bring everyone together and discuss which devices will be plugged into the TV, the size of the plugs (important if you have to drill holes in furniture), how they are controlled (by remote, wired joystick, wireless joystick, etc.) and how often they will be used.
Traditional, but works well. Shelving all around the TV is not a new concept, but using Parsons style shelves gives it a fresh twist, allowing the wall color to peek through. Fill the shelves with books (some vertical, some horizontal) and special objects, but leave enough open space to let the arrangement breathe.
