How can I make a mantel look good with a TV?
You can really make a mantel look great by adding low decor under the TV and anchoring the sides with larger, taller decor. The taller side decor can be symmetrical or asymmetrical, but it doesn鈥檛 need to be overdone. A simple lantern, vase or greenery will work just fine! 2. I love the idea of adding sconces to the side of the TV.
What is the best position for a TV on a mantle?
The middle right under the TV and the two sides. The middle can be the hardest area to decorate because you typically have the most limited space between the bottom of the TV to the mantel. My solution for this would be to place something with a low profile.
How do you decorate around a TV on the wall?
A tray with shorter decor items and stack of books keeps the decor low and out of the way of tv viewing. | Carla Aston, Designer | Colleen Scott, Photographer Keeping the decor low and minimal with maybe one tall item on one end, can help to make the mantel or surface in front of the tv not feel too overcrowded or the tv wall too busy.
Why did you choose this arrangement for your mantel?
The reason I chose this arrangement is that you see our mantel when you walk into the front door. I didn鈥檛 want the TV to be the first thing you see when coming into my house. Granted, you can see it from the side, but that鈥檚 not as obtrusive to me. And not to say that having the TV right there would have been a bad choice.
