3 Advantages of Hidden TVs in Luxury Homes
Enhance Your Lifestyle with a Television that Appears When You Need it
When you walk into a modern luxury home, the two things you’re sure to find are high-end décor and smart electronics. As wonderful as it is to have smart control of your home technology, the focus should be on the more elegant features of your home, such as the designer gourmet range in your kitchen or collectible artwork in the foyer.
The best designers know how to blend these elements together so that homeowners gain all of the benefits of smart electronics while keeping the focus on the décor. One great way to accomplish this is with hidden TVs, which are fully accessible whenever you want them, but invisible to the eye whenever not in use. In this Elements article, we cover the main ways that hidden TVs can enhance your Indianapolis, IN home. Keep reading to learn how.
More Flexibility in TV Placement
Often, a room’s layout or design leaves no ideal place for a TV. Instead of shoehorning a television into a room that can’t easily accommodate it, use a hidden TV to get around the normal constraints of wall size or design flow. There are far more options for hiding a TV than simply putting it behind a piece of framed art. A design expert can install a system that has your TV smoothly and silently lower from the ceiling, rise out of furniture, appear in a mirror, or slide out from an otherwise empty wall. The areas that would normally make a TV look out of place, such as a bathroom or kitchen, are no longer off limits with hidden TVs.
While a mantra of interior design is that form must follow function, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise the style and flow of the space just because you like to watch the evening news in bed or enjoy a movie while relaxing in the Jacuzzi. By hiding a TV in a wall, ceiling, or piece of furniture, you can maintain a sleek, smooth design in each area of your home. Instead of staring at cords, cluttered remotes, or blank screens, you get to enjoy your space without the distraction of technology.
More Wall Space for Décor
Televisions often occupy the prime real estate in each room, the focal point that draws everyone's eye. With that space taken by the TV, your artwork, sculptures, and other décor have to sit on the sidelines, never getting the opportunity to star as the main attraction. With the television tucked out of sight, you gain that décor real estate back. Not only do you have more space to put artwork on the wall, but you also keep the TV from overshadowing the other design elements in the room.
Installing nearly invisible technology in your home is a quick and painless process. Your local Bravas design partner can work with you to discuss the best options for hiding TVs throughout your home, such as installing a sliding art panel in the formal living room or a mirrored TV in the bathroom.
