Simple and Easy Ways to Decorate Around a TV


Even though television sets are less bulky than they used to be, designing around them is as tricky as ever. Making the TV visible from every point in the room without actually making it the focal point is never easy, so we bring you a few simple and easy ideas to decorate around the TV so that it’s perfectly incorporated into your room’s design and décor.

Hang shelves

A great way to diminish the impact the TV has in a room is by displaying things around it and drawing attention away from it. The easiest way to do so is by getting shelves and placing them around. Simple tiered shelves which are wider than the TV set are a great solution for displaying your collectibles. You can also pick smaller shelves and level them with your TV set, or you can even place your TV set on a specially designed bookcase. Some of these bookcases also have a sliding panel which will allow you to ‘hide’ your TV when you’re not using it.

Accessorize as much as you can

If you feel like your TV overpowers the entire room, you can try ‘fighting’ it with an unusual tactic. Attack the black box from all sides by surrounding it with different colourful accessories: frames, lamps, decorative plates, plants, etc. You can even add bold touches below and hang colourful tablecloths or decorations underneath. This way, your TV will become just another accessory instead of the focal point in the room.

Paint the wall black

If you don’t really like the idea of adding things around your TV, but would still like to keep it out of the centre of attention (at least when it’s turned off), you can try painting the wall black. This way, when it’s turned off, the TV will become just another element of the wall, unnoticeable until turned on. This is a good solution for living rooms with elegant furniture, as everyone’s attention will be drawn to them instead to the TV. If you aren’t really into painting the wall black, you can pick dark wallpapers instead.

Get a TV cabinet

If you’re looking for a way to conceal your TV and draw everyone’s focus elsewhere, you can try getting a TV cabinet. This is an especially good solution in bedrooms, as in the bedroom, the focus should be on the bed, rather than the TV. Both the cabinetry and the TV should be as unobtrusive as possible. If you struggle to find the perfect piece for your room, you can always hire a carpenter to build you a piece which will fit perfectly into your room.

Make a gallery around it

You can make a stylish gallery around your TV; all you need are identical frames and some skill to make sure they are hanged with precision. You can hang them so that they make a special geometric shape: a square, a circle, a rectangle or even a heart. If you’re hoping to colour-coordinate, you should opt for black and white photos and matching frames, but if you’re willing to experiment, adding splashes of colour to your room will work too.

Frame it!

On the other hand, if you want to draw attention to your TV, you can try making it as pretty as a picture – literally. Have a carpenter make a custom frame for it and colour it with bright, bold colours so that it matches the rest of your furniture or your curtains. Keep in mind that this can only be done with a wall-mounted TV, so don’t hesitate to call professionals in TV installation from Sydney to help you install the TV and make sure everything is fine.

It’s never easy to decorate your room so that it looks like your TV belongs right there, but it is possible. Think about the effect you want to achieve, whether you want to draw attention away from the TV or to hide it completely, and try to put your ideas into action with the help of a professional decorator.
