I am a firm believer that televisions have no place in a bedroom. Many people disagree, insisting it is a must-have item. My compromise: hide the TV from view when not in use.
You may recall a time when the preferred method of tucking the TV out of sight was tuck it into a rather large, often bulky armoire. However, that was in the days of non-wall mounted televisions that took up considerably more space.
Thankfully, the ability to hide electronics has become simpler as designs have become more streamlined.
Many manufacturers offer cabinets and consoles with embedded lifts. Be sure to think it through before you buy as there are size and weight restrictions to consider, as well as whether or not to include features such as tilt and/or swivel.
Smaller spaces may be unable to accommodate an additional piece of furniture. But not to fear, there are several other options that provide space-saving solutions.
Artwork can be a great solution. You can use more traditional pieces that are designed as “art,” or create your own. Consider using old doors on a sliding track, barn door style.
Framing out your TV or opting for a television embedded in a mirror are other options worth considering. Both still provide easy access while presenting a more peaceful and restful environment for sleep.
