Driven By Décor: The Well Hidden TV: Clever Disguises for That Big Black Box!



This Blog This Blog Wednesday, July 18, 2012 The Well Hidden TV: Clever Disguises for That Big Black Box! Most of us agree that there needs to be a spot for a TV in our family rooms but when you start talking about where to put the TV.... that's when you start to get some disagreements! Some people absolutely love their big flat screen TVs and proudly display them in the room while others can't stand how they look and will go to great lengths to hide them.

The problem with this solution for many people (including myself) is that it only works in rooms that have a good bit of space on either side of the TV for the track. If you have your TV above the fireplace and you don't have much space on either side, the best option may be to hide it behind a set of doors. While this image is one of the most beautiful examples of using a set of doors to hide a TV, those huge doors wouldn't look so beautiful left open when the TV is not in use: Bifold doors that take up less space when folded open can be a more practical solution: Another great way to hide a TV is with art - this family's TV is hidden behind a painting that rolls on a galvanized metal track - definitely one of the coolest solutions that I
