15 Ideas for TV Built-in Media Wall in Modern Living Rooms

Most living rooms have television sets in it although there are also homes that have a separate family room or entertainment area. But it is common to combine that in the living room especially if the space is limited. There are different ways to install a television in the living room. Some would merely have a free-sanding TV while others hang it on the wall. Still others place them on top of cabinets or are built-in the wall or in the media system.

For today, we will show you some living rooms with built-in wall TV. This will give you ideas on what you can do with your TVs. With this, you will be given different choices like a cover-up for your TV using paintings and others. Some are just left open but are found inside the wall system.
