Sliding tv barn doors offer several clever ways to camouflage the dreaded dark hole in the room (also known as the flat screen TV). These are especially good for rustic interiors where the wall-mounted hardware systems blend into the décor. Here are two simple ideas using barn door style systems. A short version fits above the fireplace and doors easily slide out of the way.
These tall arched doors would appear to be covering a doorway to another room when closed. While these examples are made only from wood, other material combinations can be used to tie the doors in with their surroundings.
For example, we used stained wood trim and copper panels for our TV in Disguise. While not hanging on sliding door hardware (why didn’t I think of that?!) they could easily have been designed to look like barn doors.

More barn door ideas that can be redesigned for a tv — as opposed to a doorway — can be found in Interior Barn Doors and Decorative Interior Barn Doors. Modern custom cabinets, pop-up TVlifts and opaque glass French style doors are featured in Architectural TV Cabinets and Sliding Door Closet Wall.
