Large TVs present problems for interior decorators
Feb 21 2011
It wasn't long ago that the big-screen TV was a bulky monstrosity that took up nearly half of a person's living space. However, with the arrival of flat-screen plasma and LCD TVs, the new devices are as thin as ironing boards. Still, they present their own aesthetic challenges for interior designers, according to the Contra Costa Times.
Large TVs present unique challenges for interior decorators.
Since many of these new devices come with wall mounts, designers have been finding ingenious ways of incorporating them into client's homes. A homeowner in California recently enlisted the help of industry expert Bill Cardoza. His solution was to place the TV in a two-way mirrored glass and frame. This way, the screen appears as a large mirror to visually increase the size of the space and doubles as a TV when turned on.
Light also plays a large role in choosing the right combination for your living room, and some room-darkening shades could be a welcome addition to your entertainment area. Clever use of window treatments will add ambiance and functionality to your space.
Solar screen shades could be perfect for your living room. These window treatments cut down on glare, improve draft control and create a stylish look for your interior.
