6 Clever Ways to Decorate Around a TV

How to decorate around a TV.  The best creative ways to hide, camouflage and decorate around a TV. 

I've always wanted to disguise, hide or decorate around our living room TV, but didn't want to do anything major until we renovated our upstairs.  Well, now that we're in the middle of the upstairs renovation it's time to think about our TV situation.

Do you see where the faux fiddle tree is?  That's where the new walkway will lead from the kitchen to the living room.   It will be so nice to have an open floorplan, but that also means the side and back of our current TV will be highly visible, wires and all.  Not a view I was looking forward too and I knew I'd need to make a few design changes.

I splurged and bought a new frame TV to take care of the wire issues and being able to see behind the TV and now it's time to think about how I want to decorate around the TV.  


Probably the easiest and cheapest way to decorate around a TV is to add a gallery wall.   You can keep it symmetrical with the same size frames and artwork or go a little eclectic with varying frames, colors and artwork.  Either way, gallery walls are a great inexpensive way to blend a TV in with your decor.

You know I love a good dark accent wall, so I'm all for using a dark wall to help camouflage a TV.

I'm leaning towards keeping the living room clean, modern and clutter free, so adding a simple frame around the TV is definitely an idea that I'm loving.

Do you prefer not to see your TV at all?  There are some really cool ideas for hiding a TV, including my two favorites, adding sliding barn doors and using large artwork.

Hiding a TV behind sliding Barn doors is such an easy DIY project that you can customize to fit your style.  If DIY is not your thing, there's always the option to use vintage cabinet or barn doors.  Either way, hiding a TV behind doors is a stylish option to make your TV disappear.  

I love incorporating unique vintage pieces in our home, so of course, the idea of hiding a TV behind a cool vintage pulldown map is something I totally dig.

If you want to hide your TV and make a statement consider building a wall unit with sliding doors.  This beautiful DIY piece from Brepurposed is gorgeous even when the doors are open and the TV is exposed.
