How to naturally integrate the TV in the living room



Usually when family members decide to spend some time together, the easier and faster solution is to find a movie or documentary that everyone likes and simply stay in front of the TV enjoying both the show and the time spent together. That’s why the TV has become such an important part of the living room and there’s basically no living room that doesn’t have a TV. Sometimes it’s difficult to find a convenient location for the TV, so here are some ideas that could inspire you.

One idea would be to use fixed shelves or entertainment centers. This will provide you with a fixed place for you TV and will also allow you to use the shelves and drawers to store things like speakers, DVD players etc.

The fourth option would be a hidden TV space, like the ones we see in old movies. You can go for a cabinet or anything else that allows you to hide the TV behind a door. Even though it sounds like fun, I find this option less practical. The last idea would be to build a set of shelves and place them as you want on the wall. They can be horizontal, vertical, geometrical shapes or anything else, as long as they provide the suport needed for the TV.
