Switch to modern TV wall cabinets gives you a lot of solution such as helping to save considerable space, adding space to the room, removing it from bulky racks or TV stands. But to hang a TV wall cabinet is more difficult than a mirror or a picture. First of all, it is necessary to determine the place where the TV will be installed:
  • the main criterion is the height of the installation, ideally - when the geometric center of the TV is located exactly opposite the eye level of the beholder. This placement provides the highest quality image perception. So it is necessary to take into account the height of the sofa (armchairs) - the higher they are, the higher, respectively, should be the TV
  • wall quality: TV - the device is quite heavy, a simple gypsum cardboard wall simply cannot stand 25-35 kg. Therefore, it is optimal to mount the bracket on a concrete or brick wall. Otherwise, when installing drywall, even at the stage of design development, it is necessary to clearly imagine where the TV will be hung. Then this place is additionally strengthened (thick plywood, mortgages), and for installation on plasterboard special dowels are used
  • Avoid heat: do not place the TV near heating appliances (radiators) or a place where direct sunlight
  • gap: "TV on the wall" does not mean that it should fit closely against the wall, as an option - squeezed into a niche (between the shelves). From all sides, as well as from behind should be a gap (minimum 10 cm), which will provide ventilation and cooling of the TV. If for LCD panels this is not so critical, then plasma panels emit a lot of heat.

When deciding where to fix the TV Wall Unit, you should immediately decide which additional equipment (game console, DVD player, speakers, cable TV or Internet) will be connected. On the one hand, it will be necessary to establish the necessary number of outlets, on the other - to solve the problem of hidden cable placement.

There are several techniques that will allow you to harmonize the TV wall cabinet and the space (wall) on which it is located:

  • TV, built-in furniture - manufacturers of modular furniture often provide a place to install a TV. At the same time for the TV can be provided two types of fastening - directly on the wall or on the back (background) of the furniture panel. Quite often under the TV the place on the center, in the middle of a rectangle which form high lateral cases, the top shelf and the bottom curbstone is taken away. Particularly advantageous is the option with dark furniture, when the TV receives not just a decent frame, but becomes part of the furniture, due to what space becomes a single, monolithic
  • Install the TV wall units made of plastic, leather, wood or fabric
  • quite often the TV is placed on the background of decorative facing with artificial (less often - natural) stone or textured bricks
  • if the living room is sustained in light colors, in such an interior the TV wall unit will look like a big black slob. To maximize this imbalance, change the color of the wall on which the TV is located. To do this, apply complimentary (contrasting) colors compared to those in which the interior design is made. If the room is all in the same scale, in this case, the wall is highlighted by a shade that is three colors darker than the primary color

  • elegantly fit into the interior of the living room TV, surrounded by pictures (photo) in a subtle framework - a composition is created, the center of which will be TV. It is important to sustain the size - the largest picture ( photo ) should not exceed the size of half the screen of the TV. To balance the space, under the TV it will be good to place a large cabinet or chest of drawers . Together with the pictures and photographs, you can also use medium-sized pendant sculptures or bas-reliefs
  • inside a decorative frame made of wood, polystyrene or polyurethane. Such a frame can frame a significant part of the wall, and the TV itself, plus 20-30 cm of the wall around the perimeter of the TV. In this case, the wallpaper in the living room can remain the same as the whole wall, and you can use a more contrast version of the wallpaper, different color or texture.

  • the original version will look like in which the TV zone is combined with several rows of hinged shelves. Shelves can be decorated with photos, souvenirs, and trinkets, but do not overdo it, otherwise when you look at the view will be involuntarily distracted by them. Plasma panel will look good in the middle of the composition of bookshelves symmetrically around it
  • TV wall unit in a niche created from plasterboard. The shape, size and geometry of the niche depends on the overall design. Such a niche can become the center of a whole composition that will replace traditional cabinets and racks, other niches can be decorated with wood or mirrors, illuminated, covered with glass doors.

TV on the rack for equipment - in this case you can place both the TV itself and a significant amount of equipment (satellite TV receivers, DVD players, speakers, etc.). Depending on the model, the design can be rotatable, and with rigid fixing of the TV.

1. Finished furniture modules for TV wall unit.

I think this is the most common option in our living rooms. In fact, this is the well-known old good wall, which has slightly changed but still does not lose its positions. As a rule, nothing more to decorate the wall is no longer necessary, enough to arrange beautifully on the shelves. The improved version is a built-in wall made on an initial order.

The main disadvantage is the price. Dignity - many additional closed storage places.

2. Open hanging shelves

It can be one big shelf above the TV and a combination of several shelves.


Disadvantage - most often the shelves spontaneously overgrow with all sorts of lovely trinkets and turn into warehouses of trash and dust. We need certain skills to arrange everything nicely. Dignity is the price.

3. Hanging cabinets and closed shelves

 This version of the TV cabinet can be compared to the wall, only it is visually much easier. You can use exactly the same as open shelves, create different combinations of two, three, four modules. You can combine open shelves with closed hanging cabinets. This option is more suitable for those who do not like "dust collectors".

The disadvantage, like in large furniture modules, is a high price. Dignity - additional storage space, all "trash" is closed.

4. Cabinet for TV without shelves

If the TV wall cabinet is long enough (at least 3 times longer than TV), then usually no additional decor is required on the wall from above. In general, one of the most successful, in my opinion, solutions. An excellent decoration will be room flowers and large paintings or photographs leaning against the wall, interior lamps. The main requirement is that several items should be quite large, a couple of souvenirs from Egypt and a photo frame of 10x15 will obviously not be enough. You can dock two identical thumbs to get a larger surface. If the cabinet is short and it is impossible to place anything on the left and right of the TV, then, in this case, it is most likely necessary to use prisms No. 2,3 or 7.

Dignity - additional closed storage. Disadvantage - there is not always enough room, price.

finally, When you decorate the wall behind the TV pictures try to arrange them evenly over the entire area, not just on top of the screen. In width, boldly walk to the limits of the curbstone and even further. Use not one or two pictures, take more, this is the gallery.
