The use of TV wall mounts has been a popular option for homeowners. However, not all homes are suited for a TV wall mount. Space constraints, creative style, and uniquely shaped living rooms may make using a wall mount the incorrect option for your home.
There are several creative ideas you can implement instead of forcing the typical wall mount design into your home.
A Movable TV Stand
Condos and similar residences often have an open loft-like living room that tends to be spacious and uniquely shaped. Fixing the TV on a wall mount may reduce visibility and seclude the TV to only one area of the room.
Using a movable TV stand is a great way to obtain flexibility for your TV viewing. The stand can be moved to different sections of the open room, depending on the amount of light coming in, people present in the room, and the furniture setup.
On a Cabinet
Open rooms with floor to ceiling windows can have the TV placed in the middle of the room. You can set up the TV on a cabinet that is opposite the sitting space, and conceal the back of the TV (as well as the cables) by using the cabinet components.
In this set up, the TV can also act as a boundary between the dining room and the living room space.
On Top of a Fireplace
Homes with a fireplace can position the TV above the fireplace area. This creates an elegant look to the living room, where you can enjoy the view of the fireplace and the TV simultaneously.
A motorized cabinet
In today's homes, flexibility and convenience are the top concern for residents. A motorized cabinet allows for the TV to be raised above the surface while in use, and it can be lowered beneath to provide space for the cabinet to be utilized for other functions within the home.
It is a convenient and creative design, and the cabinet housing the TV can be shifted to different sections of the room.
