Where Should You Put Your TV
Television placement has become both easier and harder to resolve over the past years.
We can all still remember 15 or 20 years ago when one could easily spot the oversized armoire looming over the family room with the poorly concealed purpose of housing the TV, as well as blocking the rat’s nest of wires and cords involved in any kind of video entertainment. When the new, sleek flatscreen televisions first hit the marketplace it seemed to solve all of those issues. The very simply-styled television no longer needed to live in some sort of mysterious closet. It could live out and proud in almost any room in the house.

But it’s also become more complicated. The other side of this decorative coin is now that since we can place the TV practically anywhere, one can get a little overwhelmed with options. The family room is the first, and most obvious, location to place your main entertainment center. I’ve never been a fan of seeing the TV over the fireplace because often the proportions are wrong in the room and the location becomes too high when placed over the mantel. When the option is available, place the TV to one side of the fireplace.
The use of small televisions in a kitchen or breakfast room is also a good idea (just so you can be able to keep up with the news before starting your day). The new wrinkle in this whole debate is the number of people watching their entertainment on personal computers. With the overwhelming amount of movies and TV series available to stream over the net, quite often it’s more important to have a strong WiFi system for your home than to have televisions mounted all over the place.
For those rooms where you need to place your TV, be intentional about it. Keep window treatments in mind when designing a media space. Blackout linings can help to produce a more “theater-like” darkness in the room, even on a bright afternoon.
