It’s so much easier nowadays to hang the TV on a wall instead of occupying floor space with a piece of furniture. If you also have a fireplace then you must have though at least once that hanging the TV over the fireplace could be a good idea. However, it’s difficult to decide. Both the pros and the cons of doing that are strong enough to let you doubt yourself.
The BIG PRO of displaying the TV over the fireplace is that you get to save space. The rest of the walls can be used to display artwork or for mounting furniture on. Also, since both the TV and the fireplace are focal points in any living room, putting them both on the same wall means that they’ll create a common focal point.
