TV Cabinet - I really like the pullout shelf for the TV. Is the media cabinet custom built? Our fireplace and TV are right next to each other so it's always a struggle arranging furniture.

nancy, another option to consider is TVCoverUps. Framed art(including your own) or mirror adds to the room's decor with the hidden TV and Entertainment Consoles beneath.
See how EASY it really is :

Where can you find bifold pocket door cabinet hardware like this?

It's just a combination of standard retractable cabinet door hardware from a manufacturer such as Hafele or Blum - and a few simple hinges.

I would paint it the same color as the wall, you really want it to fade into the background.

Great idea for the tight spaces - minimalistic design is very appealing - time machine is unnecessary. Love it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sometimes, when you're sick, all you really want to do is veg on the sofa with a bowl of soup and an America's Next Top Model marathon on TV. This sofa-TV combo looks just about perfect for that. Lots of pillows on the sofa - perfect for arranging (or tossing on the floor for more room) and a clear shot of the TV. But I also like that this room is not solely devoted to the television. It hides behind a neat cabinet for those non-sick, non-ANTM days, so guests don't have to feel like they're hanging out in a movie theater.
Useful as they are, most TVs don't make a great aesthetic statement - which makes cabinets like this one a good investment.
Niche Interiors added this to Tastefully Incorporating Televisions
Perfect -- hidden away when not in use, and at a good angle when you need it.
Bi-fold doors hide the TV, then open and slide into the media cabinet when it's time for viewing.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Relationship Problems Solved by Design
Problem No. 2: Communication has gone out the window. With all the distractions of day-to-day life, it's easy to misunderstand what your loved one is saying. And of course, misunderstanding can quickly lead to an argument. (I know that my boyfriend and I would save a lot of time and energy if we just listened to each other in the first place.) Having a conversation in person — not on a cell phone or via text message — and without distraction can make a world of difference. So make sure that you have a quiet and relaxing space where you can talk without the distraction of electronic devices. Having the ability to hide your TV, for example, can make a big difference. Don't just turn your set off — tuck it away entirely. Let your living room or family room become a space that's just about the two of you and your conversation.
It's also nice to be able to tuck that TV out of sight with built-ins when you're not watching.

I like the doors to close off TV. Could do this if we put the fireplace in the middle and the tv to the right? could also do for TV if we put it on top of the fireplace as well. to the right of fireplace is a good use of space since we have the radiator to deal with.
