Maintain a small reveal for passive air circulation, and you'll be fine.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If you decide to go with the recessed look above a mantle, keep in mind you must allow the proper depth to allow for tilting the TV downward so it's geared toward the proper eye level. Watching "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" with major glare in Camille or Lisa's face totally kills the effect. ps: I cannot remember life before that show. I love every single one of them and wish the series were live 24/7.
