5. Cabin Style TV Fireplace

Reminiscent of a log cabin, the Cabin-style TV fireplace is complemented by piles of wooden logs on either side for a cozy and warm vibe. You can choose to go for the traditional wood stove or an electric/gas furnace, leaving the logs to be more ornamental.

On the other hand, the TV rests safely inches away from the furnace and is held comfortably in a recessed shelf partition. Additionally, you can opt for the central wall portion with the fireplace and TV alone. However, if your budget allows it, go for the complete look with bookshelves on either side for an even cozier look.

FAQs

Do you have questions regarding styling a fireplace TV wall? Here are answers to some common questions;

How do you style a room with a TV and fireplace?

The best way to style a room with a TV and fireplace is to place them perpendicular to the walls, like in a shiplap wall design. On the other hand, the furniture works best opposite the TV and fireplace to give you a good non-strained view of the TV and a clear line of sight to the fireplace for adequate warmth.

Can you hang a TV on a fireplace wall?

You can certainly hang a TV on a fireplace wall. But, design this setup in a way that the heat is directed away from the TV to prevent damage or possible fires. One way to do so is to use a mantle or shelf to separate the TV and fireplace.

Is a TV over a fireplace a good idea?

It’s okay to mount a TV over a fireplace. However, it may not be a good idea if you don’t manage the excess heat produced by the fireplace. After all, areas above the fireplace are usually warmer than other wall surfaces.  When combined with electronics, it can be a recipe for a fire.

How do you build a built-in TV and fireplace wall?

There are several ways to build a TV and fireplace wall, depending on the design you want. The easiest way is to build a frame using wood panels, finish it with a paint job and then, securely attach the fireplace at the bottom and the TV at the center top part.

Where should a TV be placed with a fireplace?

With proper measures, you can place your TV atop the fireplace, at the meeting point of your fireplace, and on the perpendicular wall.  This creates a focal point giving you a direct view of the TV and direct exposure to the warm heat coming from the fireplace.

How can I make my TV look better over the fireplace?

The best way is to make the TV your focal point. To do so, add decorative details around the borders of the TV. This can be anything from a matte paint job to patterned tiles or natural stone.

Conclusion

Choosing any of the 40 fireplace wall ideas with TV lets you improve the look of your home. Whether you decide to DIY or get a contractor, splurge, or budget, there’s definitely an idea specially curated for your home.
