Investing in a flat screen Television is perfectly in order. You bring it home and place on a designated furniture and sit down to watch it in action. This is the time you realize that everything around the TV is not right. This is the time you realize that the television is blocking décor on the wall. This is also the time when you come to realize that the console on which you have placed the television on is just too big. These are just a few of problems you are likely to encounter when you bring home a TV set for the first time and below are a few ideas on decorating a living room with flat screen television.
Your fist step should not be on decorating your living room but creating space along TV view angles. The fact that this is a flat screen television means that you can view it from different angles and it is very important that you remove anything blocking view. Identify any tall furniture.
When it comes to decoration, the first idea is to make your flat screen television the room’s focal point. This you can do by highlighting the wall behind the television to emphasize presence of the TV.
It may turn out that you do not place your flat screen television on a console but prefer to have it fixed on the wall. The viewing height is very important especially when it comes to decorating a living room with flat screen television. Make it a point to a large artwork on the wall and have the TV mounted at the center. It is important to note that this only applies in case your living room is large enough. Stick to placing your TV on a console if the room is small.
It may also turn out that your living room is one with a very high ceiling, which means that a large area is left bare above the TV’s viewing line. You can decorate the room effectively by hanging artwork pieces above the TV. Such artwork should be simple so as not to distract TV viewing.
A flat screen television can be a valuable addition into your living room. Decorating a living room with flat screen television requires that you focus on both the immediate and larger area around the TV.
One important point should be kept in mind while you decorate the living room, you need to keep big sofa sets away or decorate them at a good distance from the central area of the TV or it would give the entire room an impression of a full cluttered space. Avoid using mirror on any side of the TV, use it in the middle of the space instead.
