How to Hide a TV with Décor
Put it against a dark wallA television will almost disappear completely if you put it against a dark accent wall. You’ll also give your room a bold, dramatic element that could elevate your décor. If you don’t want to paint an entire wall a dark color, you could opt for painting just the back of the cabinet your television is in.
Hide it behind doorsOf course, the fastest and most efficient way to hide your television entirely is to put it behind cabinet doors. Built-in entertainment centers look great, but for a more budget-friendly option, try an armoire or a chic storage system like the ones you can find at IKEA. You’ll have to open the doors every time you want to watch TV, but you can close them whenever you don’t want to see it.
Distract with a patternPattern is always eye-catching, so if you put one behind the TV or adjacent to it, you’ll draw attention away from the TV. Even just incorporating some patterned elements like a sofa, chair, pillows, or rug will help distract from it.
Balance it with other black accentsEmbrace the dark element of the television by balancing it with other black accents throughout the space. This will make it blend into the décor and look more like it has an aesthetic purpose rather than just a functional one.
Incorporate it into a gallery wallAnother way to embrace the look of the television is to incorporate into a gallery wall. Hang complementing photographs or artwork around the TV to anchor it and create a unique focal point in the space that is full of charm and character.
Create other lines and geometric shapesThe TV is basically a rectangular box which makes it stand out so much in a space, but if you incorporate other distinct lines and geometric shapes around it, such as shelving and artwork, it can actually look quite intentional and aesthetically pleasing.
Flank it with two other elementsBalance out the television with two items on either side of it, whether it’s two lamps or something larger like two substantial pieces of artwork or shelving units.
