15 Modern Day Living Room TV Ideas

Anyone you ask would probably say that they’d love to have a brand new LCD TV in their living room or den. Aside from entertaining you and your family; sometimes, the bigger your TV screen is, the more fun it is to invite your friends over to watch a great movie or have a TV series marathon with them. Well, basically, having a television in the living room aids us from really just chatting and hanging out at home.

Today, we will be showcasing 15 Modern Day Living Room TV Ideas which help us with how we can display the beautiful LCD TVs we have at home; or even the older models – some of the designers or the homeowners show off their TV screens or plainly put a painting on top of it to hide it when it is not needed or being used. You will see the TVs being placed above a mantle, in the middle of the bookshelf or even by the cabinet. Check them out!

The interior place

The white panels are made from acrylic panels whereas the black material is black colored glossy laminates which really brings out the beauty of this living room. Using the classic black and white color palette made a lot of difference.

Art Deco Influence

dual bookcases

Dan Waibel Designer Builder

Flanked by dual bookcases, this corner fireplace vies for attention with a flat-screen television. But because it sits on a pedestal and upholds a beautiful mirrored panel, it’s a winner each time.

Calgary Contemporary Living Room

television screen

Johnson & Associates Interior Design

We can see that the homeowners decided to actually place the television screen above the fireplace. It was recessed to the wall for it to just plainly mix with the wall design. The regular color of the TV complements well with the color palette of the living room.

Delaware Place

contemporary living room

Michael Abrams Limited Interior Design

This Chicago contemporary living room seem really masculine because of the darker colors used for it – from the dark wood for the TV console, the color of the seating and coffee table, even the curtains seem dark; but of course, they all complement the walls, the ceiling and the flooring.

Glasgow Family Room

console tables

The Couture Rooms

The advent of flat screens gave rise to console tables and media cabinets. This freed up space and allowed for airier, lighter rooms. At the same time, better-looking TVs made it more acceptable to keep them out in the open.

Green Dream Home

TV cover

Digiacomo Homes & Renovation, Inc.

In this living room, we see how smartly the designer and the homeowner would cover up the television set when it’s not in use. And during events, you can always let the TV covered while you add decorations on the mantle.

Lima Residence

wall paneling

Abramson Teiger Architects

Putting up your television above a console may be the simplest thing to do but because of the great wall paneling done in this space, we can definitely say that it was well-thought of. Good job Abramson Teiger Architects!

Montreal Media Room

Maria Deschamps Design

A warm inviting functional family room with a custom designed wall unit for motorized plasma bracket and integrate Bose stereo and speakers. Storage area was designed for DVDs and video games and equipment. The Italian oak custom wall unit is floating with a chrome frame and LED lighting above and below.

Northbrook House

wall-mounted TV

Wheeler Kearns Architects

If you have a television, consider mounting it to the wall. Using swing arms and wall mounting a television set take away the need for a cumbersome media console and free up floor space from entertainment units.

Presidio Heights Residence

sliding rail

Marla Schrank Interior Design

Here is another great example of keeping and at the same time showing off you television. You are basically putting the device in a hole and adding in an artwork in a sliding rail to use it. Pretty smart, don’t you think?

Spire Theater Room

media room

Iron Mountain Remodeling

This media room is one techy space, not everyone can live in. But truth be told, that this is a space all teenagers would probably enjoy being in – its high-tech, its design is simple, its decor is awesome and it is not cramped.

Sunny Flat

stained dark wood

KYZLINK Architects & Interior

Neutrals, neutrals and more neutrals. Adding a stained dark wood behind the television cut the light color charade on the wall – it’s sleek, clean and really livable.

Tailor Made

living room appliances

Jefferes Design Group

Knickknacks scattered around a room look more like clutter and tends to lose their importance. When grouped together they make a statement and become more relevant to the homeowner.

Small Wonder

shelves design


Use several shelves together to cover the full wall above the TV, and shorter lengths beside it; cabinets below provide closed storage for media and extra cords. Positioning the screen off-center looks fresh and can actually be more functional than a centered TV, depending on your seating arrangement.
