A tv above the fireplace may — or may not — be visible. That depends on whether it’s concealed.
Keep the TV out in the open, set it inside an entertainment unit or hide the tv above the fireplaced? Designers and homeowners are getting creative about how to incorporate a flat-screen in a room now that the latest technology is providing us with sleek and ultra thin TV sets. Many of you have seen Allison’s kitchen here on Atticmag, but her design extend throughout her home. While she was building her house Allison thought up a way to conceal the 46-inch TV above the fireplace in her great room. Unable to locate a cover she liked, she designed one herself. When closed [top] the copper screen cover appears to be a piece of metal art.
She decided on sliding panels, 6-feet from the floor, because they would move easily and not interfere with the mantel accessories. She chose copper to echo the material she had used far across the great room on the copper backsplash and hood in her kitchen.
After making a sketch of what she wanted, Allison showed it to the same contractors who crafted her kitchen. The process for creating a patina on the copper was sped up by wetting the panels several times over the course of a few days, then framing them with wood leftover from an earlier project.
