Renaissance Kitchen and Home

Hello tapdancedi,
I couldn't agree with you more,
TV's are for designated TV areas, putting a TV in a formal area or a great room area detracts from the enviroment unless that is specifically what your intention for the space is.
I am attaching a photo of a compromise between a formal/ greatroom space and a TV area. I have designed a beautiful wood frame with special glass that allows the TV to show thru unabstructed while the TV is on and a Mirror when the TV is off. This eliminates the destraction of a TV when it is not needed, BUT allows great viewing of the TV when you want it!

Hope you like what you see.
Look for more pictures of this remodel on our Houzz site under"Townhome Redesign"

Also, reach out to me for a quote .www.interiortrend.com

Why assume people only want fireplaces in formal areas? We love snuggling under a blanket with the ambience of fire while watching a movie.

I here you there Dave.

That is another reason we started making the Hidden TV Mirrors.

When the TV is off it out of site and you can focus on the fireplace.


Here is another photo of a cast stone fireplace we did with a custom stone silver leaf frame and hidden mirrored TV.
