Is your TV ruining your apartment design? It certainly does for me! I’m a couch potato that is convinced that the TV is the best invention ever. But let’s face it, a huge black box sitting in the middle of the living room can sometimes make a space look awkward. Just like you, I wish my TV blended well with the surrounding interiors.

Luckily, there are ways to do just that without major do-overs involved. Let’s take a look at all the sneaky (yet practical!) ways of disguising your TV in any room:

Mounted on a Dark Wall

I love the idea of adding an accent wall to a space. It just makes the apartment design look more luxurious while making a small home appear larger by breaking up the space visually. And if you’ve always been thinking about incorporating an accent wall into your space, why not paint a wall with a dark color to disguise the TV too? It’s like hitting two birds with one stone.

If you’re painting a wall to camouflage the TV, make sure the paint color is just as dark as the TV itself. Inky black, midnight blue or dark gray are perfect accent wall colors to start. The tone-on-tone coloring eliminates the contrast between the wall and the TV!

Not sold on the idea of painting your wall? How about using wallpaper instead? Dark colored or graphic wallpaper designs hide the TV in plain sight while adding drama in a room!

Mounted Above the Fireplace

You might think adding a TV anywhere near a fireplace might upset the balance within a space but it does the exact opposite. Mounting the TV above the fireplace is not only an effective way of disguising the TV; it also adds a great design element to the space.

It adds an eye-catching architectural feature to a home. If you’re a hardcore DIYer, you probably don’t need professional installation to do this.

Another variation of this design idea is to mount the TV inside the fireplace. This works if you haven’t use the fireplace in a while. Just figure out how to get the wiring right (a couple of tips here) and you’re ready to reclaim all that unused space. Also, it may be a bit low for some homes so this solution may not be for everyone.

Inside a Paneled Wall

This tip will require advanced DIY or professional installation but trust me; it’s worth the extra expense!

You can either rock the tone-on-tone coloring for the sliding paneled wall or use the wall as a moving art. Either way, the effect is the same: it keeps the TV hidden from sight.

Incorporated in a Gallery Wall

If a dark accent wall doesn’t work with your existing apartment design, how about a gallery instead? Building a gallery wall art around the TV helps create harmony in a space. The eclectic mix of artworks takes the attention away from the TV.

The key to disguising the TV using gallery wall art is choosing similar color palettes so the TV blends well with the décors. Mixing the TV with different silhouettes, it will be hidden away in plain sight!

Mixed with Media

Another crafty yet stylish way of disguising the TV is by mounting it on a book case. The surrounding books and decors take the eyes away from the TV as a focal point.

You could either go with an all-white book case as seen on the Bucktown dwelling above or a dark-colored book case so the TV blends seamlessly.

Behind the Shutters

Installing shutters in places other than the windows sounds weird but here me out! Shutters make the perfect disguise for the TV without disturbing the overall look of your apartment design.

With just a flick of a hand, the TV is revealed! You could opt for neutral colored shutters or a decorative one like this vintage world map!

If shutters aren’t your thing, you could also go for curtains to achieve the same effect.
