No Space for a TV Wall Mount? Here Are 5 Creative Solutions

May 22, 2018

The WiseCat knows it can be a challenge finding the right spot for the television in today’s open-plan homes, lofts, and rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows.

What if you could just get away from the wall and place your TV out in the middle of the room? Well, you can!  There are just a few essential elements to doing this successfully and having it look like it was meant to be.

Here are the three essential elements to float your TV away from the wall.

1. Hide the back of the TV with cabinetry.

2. Place all your components inside the cabinet.

3. Use a power strip inside the cabinet so all cables and cords are contained inside the cabinet. You will then only need to deal with a single power cord emerging from the cabinet.

The cabinet in the photo above fits the bill. It’s beautiful on all sides and offers plenty of room for components, cables, a power strip and cords. By keeping it no taller than is necessary it defines the TV and dining areas without dividing the room.

Tip: Floor-mounted electrical outlets are your friend. If you are installing a new outlet, place it right under the cabinet, and allow space under the cabinet for the plugs because they will stick up from the outlet a couple inches. Create an access panel in the bottom of the cabinet so you can reach the plug.

 

I realize this TV is not in the middle of a room, but it sure could be. This TV cabinet has a motorized lift inside so you can raise the TV up to watch, then …
