Hidden Storage + Swinging TV Cabinet modern-living-room

Hidden Storage + Swinging TV Cabinet

I designed this innovative storage solution with a built-in TV cabinet that swings completely open. This allows stereo equipment, media, etc to hide behind it. It also allowed the TV to be viewed at different angles including outside on the nearby deck. www.IversonSignaturehomes.com

What hinges did you use? - What hinges did you use? - Awesome work! I love the idea and I'm looking to tackle a similar project. One thing I am having trouble coming across is a strong enough hinge system to hold the weight of the TV. How wide does the TV swing out? How much weight would it hold? Any pointers/ideas/additional photos would be appreciated.

rhutchison, another option 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:

ahauser5, you may want to consider TVCoverUps. Framed art(including your own) or mirror adds to the room's decor with the hidden TV & Entertainment Consoles beneath. It also allows for TV tilting hardware, allowing you to position the TV at the perfect viewing height.

Any cooling issues? - HDTV like any electronic appliances generate heat, it's worse with plasma TV. Did you encounter heat issues from your enclosed TV? Does your design involve a "Chimney" within the wall or did you install cooling fan? Thanks! Cansly

I've never had an issue with heat from the TV, and it's been on for hours and hours as it's used as the screen for playing media and music as well. There is no cooling fan installed.

There's no chimney within the wall. If you're referring to the fireplace, it's a direct vent gas fireplace that vents straight out the back of the exterior wall.

Here's a little more info about the surrounding cabinets on also. The cabinet to the left is also setup for equipment if needed depending on how much equipment you have. It was also pre-drilled on the left for a small fan install (it was never needed though) which is released through the top of the cabinet next to it.

Wayne - I believe I used 4 or 5 of the hinges. It stays closed from the weight with no issues. In the next few of these I did, I installed a simple wood wedge that the door slid along and could be easily adjusted if the door settled over time. I don't remember the weight or the bracket I used. It was the shallowest bracket built for a plasma TV that was 50" in diameter. The trick was leaving the absolute minimum amount of space around the TV to allow it be slid in place and then dropped down onto the bracket. I cut this one a little close, but it left just enough space on top for an infared eye to be placed to operate all the AC equipment.

Thanks for the question! It's not for sale at this time as each unit is built custom for each particular space and TV. It is one of the items that I may include for sale on my new interior design & furniture division at some point in the future though. www.Remarque.co is the site. If you're local, I could also have one designed & built for you, but shipping would be quite expensive out of state. I hope this helps!

Thanks for the compliment! The stone used here was an Owens Corning, Cultured Stone, in a ledgestone style. Here's the link. http://www.culturedstone.com/products/1/13/pro-fit-ledgestone.aspx

@Imorgen - I have 23" behind the TV when the door is closed, but you typically won't need that much space behind the TV. It all depends on the size of audio equipment being used.

@oreo1 good point, that all depends on what equipment ends up being back there. DVD players, etc. wouldn't need any. The cabinet to the left is also setup for equipment if needed depending on how much equipment you have. It was also pre-drilled on the left for a small fan install which is released through the top of the cabinet next to it. The TV cabinet is also on an exterior wall and plans were made to direct vent a fan if at all needed.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to The Right Built-ins for Your Fireplace
...but you would be wrong again. This is pretty slick. The entire TV alcove is hinged to swing open to reveal another spacious storage area behind. Style: The light, natural wood used for the built-ins complements the pale stone and the modern look of the horizontal fireplace. Keeping all of the DVDs hidden creates a minimal look suitable for this room's contemporary style.
