Making the TV part of home decor is easy if you get a TV stand or a cabinet that integrates one. But what if you don’t want more cabinets or stands to be in your interior design, or perhaps the look you’re going for doesn’t play well with a TV sticking out?
For all those cases, we can use some creativity and disguise the TV so that it doesn’t stick out in a jarring way and blend in smoothly without disturbing the look of the room. Here 9 ways to do it, most of them simple but may require some craftiness.
Mount the TV on an Accent Board
You can create an accent in the room’s decor with a board (like this rustic one) which makes the TV blend in. And it can even have some shelves for extra storage.
Decorate Around It Heavily
The easiest way to draw any attention away from the big black flat box is to decorate heavily around it, thus balancing the space out. You can do that with pictures or wall art.
Hide It Behind Sliding Doors
If you want to hide it altogether, a great crafty way is installing a sliding door just for the TV.
Hide It in the Table
Another crafty DIY project with an integrated hidden TV is this coffee table that opens up to reveal the technology.
Or this ingenious way to slide the TV up from the cabinet.
Create a Wall Niche for It
This project requires some planning but a wall niche can be the home for your TV, such as this wonderful brick wall with a fireplace and naturally unveiling TV.
Distract with Shelves
You don’t need special furniture if you can afford to install a number of suspended shelves on the wall. That way you can use them to display various accessories, collectibles or plants, and the TV seamlessly becomes one of them too.
Hide It Behind Pictures
Install an unfolding picture board and you can hide the TV behind pieces of art. No one will suspect it.
Or get this awesome TV mount that unfolds over your bed for the bedroom.
Frame the TV
Make the TV an art piece by framing it with picture frames. It doesn’t even have to fit perfectly just as long as you give it some sort of a frame.
Hide It Behind a Mirror
By installing a sliding mirror you can hide a TV behind it too.
