Our mcm house had a built-in record player cabinet when we bought it. When I wanted to move the TV to an upstairs room, my husband suggested installing a turnable base for the TV in the cabinet. It works perfectly for us. We have cork floors and can easily slide his arm chair and my chaise a few inches so that both of us can see the TV at eye level with no tilting of the neck. Daytime: cabinet doors closed. Nighttime: open.

We just designed our dream home and yes, the TV is in the living room on the main feature wall. I'm designing an amazing wall of shelves and cabinetry to go around it. Not sure my architect was happy when I asked him to move the fireplace to a less prominent wall because I personally do not like a TV over the fireplace and prefer a piece of art over fireplace. We use the TV way more than the fireplace and wanted it to be comfortable. There isn't a separate room available for TV and the reality is that it's my house and it's designed for me to live in comfortably. It will be beautiful none the less...
