First, think about the size of your flat-screen TV. You'll want to make sure that the design you choose can accommodate your TV size. Second, consider the other furniture and decor in your room. Make sure the TV wall design you choose will complement the rest of the room's decor and style.

Finally, think about your budget. TV wall ideas can range vastly in price, so be sure to set a budget before you start shopping. With a little planning and some creativity, you can create a TV wall that's both stylish and functional.

Here are some great TV wall ideas that I have collated to get you started:

Keep it Clean and Simple

A clean and simple TV wall design is a great option for many modern homes. The living room above shows how simply creating a colourful TV feature wall and adding a modern, sleek glossy TV unit and storage wall cabinets, can create the perfect modern design television and entertainment space.

The only change I would make is to purchase a larger wide-screen TV set and wall mount it in the centre of the space between the cabinets.

If you have a small space, a simple, clean design can help make the room appear larger and ultimately save space. In addition, it's very easy to keep clean and tidy.


Consider an Eye-Catching Design

If you want your TV wall to stand out, consider an eye-catching, contemporary-style creative TV wall design. You can find plenty of great ideas online or in home improvement stores. Just be sure to measure your space before you buy anything so you know it will fit.

This ultra-modern TV wall design utilises stylish 3D moulded panels, beautifully lit from above to accentuate the wave-like curves. The cubby holes on either side are perfect for displaying decorative items and cleverly use the same panels to mirror the theme, tying everything together. A stunning way to frame the wall-mounted flat-screen television.

Create a TV Wall on a Budget

TV walls can range massively in price, so be sure to set a budget before you start searching for ideas or shopping for materials. There are plenty of great options to choose from, no matter what your budget. You don't have to spend a fortune to create a masterpiece!

This simple design solution is a great example of how TV wall ideas can be created on a budget. Make a feature of the wall by using a bold paint colour or wallpaper, add a sleek cost-effective wide TV unit, attach the TV to the wall, and voila!

Interesting Fact About the Television...

The first electromechanical television systems were invented in the late 19th century. However, it wasn't until the mid-20th century that electronic television, as we know it today, became widespread. The first electronic television system was demonstrated by Philo Farnsworth in 1927. Farnsworth's system used a scanning mechanism and electronic components to capture and display images, laying the groundwork for the modern television technology we use today.

Add Some Personality

One of the best things about TV walls is that they can add personality and interest to any room. For example, If you want your living room to have a more relaxed feel, consider adding a TV wall or TV stand and include family photos, framed art, or your favourite artwork.

On the white walls of this living room example, the gallery wall creates a perfect main focal point and makes for a more personal and homely space.

Consider The Other Decor in Your Room

Make sure the TV wall design you choose will complement the rest of the room's interior design. If you have a lot of modern furniture, a sleek, glossy TV wall design would be a great choice. If you have more traditional furniture and decor, consider a more ornate design.

The example above clearly shows a living room with a modern interior design and the contemporary approach of the TV wall design matches the room theme perfectly.

Matte white storage units, open illuminated display shelves and a wood effect feature wall panel, which compliments the flooring, all work together to create a stunning modern TV wall design that, although quite understated, is a stylish work of art!

Get Creative and Do It Yourself

There are no rules when it comes to TV walls, so get creative and find a design that you love. You can even DIY your TV wall if you're feeling brave. I highly recommend this video presented by Craig Phillips on ' how to build a media wall'.

It may seem very daunting to start with, but once you understand how the basic frame is structured, you can then add your style and creativity into the mix!

Get Help From a Professional

If you're not sure where to start and don't think that it is something you can tackle yourself, consider hiring a professional to help you design and install your TV wall. They'll be able to help you find the perfect materials and ensure it's installed properly and is built to last.

I advise that you check out any online reviews and previous customer testimonials. The last thing you want to do is have to correct a bad job, which will end up costing far more in the long run than initially budgeted for.

Embrace Minimalism

Minimalism has been around forever and is still a popular choice among interior designers. It certainly shows no signs of going away anytime soon.

The large expanse of wall space in this sleek modern living room has been used to great effect as a TV feature wall, for not only the wall-mounted TV but also for the surrounding shelves situated over to one side and the vast storage cabinets above and to the right.

As far as TV wall ideas and wooden panelling ideas go, the interior design of this living space is a clever way to incorporate both contemporary design and a handy built-in storage space.

In my opinion, this is the ideal solution for covering up unsightly clutter and means that you can simply show just a select few decorative objects, like plants, photos and artwork. Modern minimalism at its best.

Spend on High-End Design


Image credit:

This stunning TV wall is something straight out of a glossy interior magazine and shows what can be done with a bit of imagination, money and LED lighting.

The deep grey of the wall has been seamlessly carried through to the wall-hung cabinets, while the oak panel backing of the black TV cuts across behind the cabinets, creating a simple, yet very effective geometric masterpiece.

The LED lighting surrounding the television screen is the perfect finishing touch, lifting the TV on the wall to its rightful place as the focal point of the room.

Let's be honest, this design idea doesn't come cheap. But if you can afford to go all out, then this is certainly a finish to aspire to. The fact that this has been created in a bedroom, makes it feel all the more luxury and high-end.

Media Wall Design - Frame the TV with Storage


Image credit:

The high-gloss finish of these black wall-mounted storage units, not only creates a modern and sleek media wall design but also a practical space to store anything you could need. There are also handy glass shelves neatly situated between them for placing game consoles, cable boxes and photos or ornaments.

Framing the flat-screen television in this way produces a geometric TV wall design that is befitting for a modern living room in the 21st century.

Create a Monotone Effect


Image credit:

The balance and contrast of brown walls, darker brown and white wall cabinets and dark wood wooden flooring are a nice touch of thought-out interior design.

This modern TV wall is not so much about having the biggest TV to show off on movie nights but about creating a contemporary style and aesthetic within the living room space.

So as not to be too bland and boring, the interior designer of this space has added elements of colour into the mix, with both the large blue rug and soft purple seating.

Go Ultra-Contemporary


Image credit:

Although I love this ultra-contemporary wall with a wall-mounted TV in the centre, I'm not sure that as far as TV wall ideas go, many living rooms could convincingly pull it off.

The curved organic forms of the base panel and shelving boxes are beautifully designed, with the cool blue LED lighting emanating from the raised circular plate and base, adding to the futuristic effect.

I can certainly imagine it located in a contemporary hotel or upmarket London bar, but unless the rest of the living space is as out there as the accent wall, I think it would be a struggle to marry the look with the other elements of the room.

Apply Panelling as a Backdrop


Image credit:

Wooden wall panelling is very much on-trend a the moment, so it stands to reason that a panelled wall be used as the backdrop to add wall-mounted TVs.

On this feature wall, wooden battens have been used to create a modern geometric pattern and then painted black along with the accent wall behind, which creates this stunning effect.

No wall cabinets have been used around the television at all, which is a wise idea, as you wouldn't want to cover up any more of the raised wall effect.

A simple yet stylish brown and white skandi cabinet finishes the wall, adding the needed storage space and display area that any modern home requires.

Use Lighting to Highlight the TV Wall


Image credit:

Lighting is a very important element in any living room decor, so adding LED lighting strips to highlight the edge of the TV wall is a great addition, giving a lovely soft glow of light both during the day and at night time.

This simplistic design with clean lines and a sleek modern finish, incorporates adequate hidden storage and utilises only grey within its colour palette.

As far as TV wall ideas are concerned, this is a cool and contemporary construction and layout that would suit any modern and minimalist space.

Add a Bar to Your TV Wall!

What's not to love about this photo, a cool modern TV wall, with an integrated (well almost) drinks bar!

The rear printed glass back panel, similar to that of a kitchen backsplash (but on a much larger scale), adds a smooth glossy sheen to the space. This is matched perfectly by the gloss surface of the white storage cabinets.

This would be a great entertaining room for family and friends to meet up and either chat, drink, watch a movie, or do all of those things at the same time!

Media Wall Ideas - Go With Glass and Gloss


Image credit:

When it comes to TV media wall ideas, this is another example of an entertainment wall where a glossy finish is the main concept that runs through the whole media wall design.

There is certainly no space being wasted here, as the TV wall stretches the whole width of the room, and has plenty of built-in glass cabinets and hidden storage for everything that may need to be displayed or hidden away.

The marriage of the warm mixed wood panelling and black and white colour scheme is a beautiful combination that perfectly complements the rest of the room in which it resides.


Make Use of Texture and Pattern


Image credit:

Although this large standalone floating TV display unit encapsulates a modern design, it could potentially work in both a traditional or contemporary space. This is due to its warm dark wood finish and traditional marble effect panel.

There is a small amount of space for storage at the bottom of the media cabinet, and ample surfaces for displaying your favourite ornaments, photos and greenery.

The star of the show for me though, are the classy vertical wooden strips that are neatly highlighted by the secluded lighting above.

My Final Thoughts

As you can see from my TV and media wall ideas, there are many ways to create the perfect TV wall design.

But whatever your space, experience or budget, anyone can create a stunning TV wall that they can be proud of.

If you are inspired by these modern TV wall ideas and are planning to build or create one yourself, I recommend checking out how to wall mount a TV. The last thing that I would want, is for you to come down in the morning to find your expensive flat-screen TV shattered in pieces on the floor!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should the TV be on the wall high or low?

The placement of a TV mounted on the wall depends on factors such as viewing comfort and room aesthetics. Mounting the TV at eye level is generally recommended for a comfortable viewing experience. This entails positioning the centre of the screen at eye level when seated. However, the room layout and size of the TV also play a role. If you have a large TV and ample space, mounting it at eye level is easier.

However, if your seating is closer or the wall space is limited, a higher placement might be necessary. Wall height and furniture placement should be considered too.

Lower ceilings may require higher mounting to avoid obstruction, while high ceilings allow for lower placement.

Ultimately, personal preference plays a big role, with some preferring a lower position for smaller TVs or relaxed viewing, while others opt for higher placement for a cinematic feel or to keep it out of reach from children or pets.

Should a TV be in the middle of the room wall?

Placing a TV in the middle of the room wall is a popular and recommended approach for achieving balance and optimal viewing angles. It creates a focal point in the room and ensures an even distribution of sound and visuals.

By positioning the TV in the centre, a symmetrical and balanced look is achieved, especially when complemented by other elements like speakers or shelves on either side. Additionally, wall mounting the TV in the middle allows viewers from various positions in the room to enjoy comfortable viewing angles without straining their necks, resulting in an immersive experience.

However, while placing a TV in the middle of the wall is a common practice, it's important to consider room dimensions, furniture layout, and personal preferences to determine the most suitable placement for your specific circumstances.

Should I get my TV professionally mounted?

Deciding whether to hire a professional to mount your TV depends on your DIY experience and the complexity of the installation. If you lack expertise or are unfamiliar with the process, professional installation provides peace of mind and insurance against damage.

They possess the necessary skills, tools, and knowledge to ensure safety, accuracy, and proper wall attachment. Additionally, some TV warranties may require professional mounting for coverage.

Complex installations involving unique wall materials or specific requirements are best handled by professionals who can efficiently address those challenges. Hiring professionals also saves time, as they bring the necessary tools and expertise to complete the installation quickly.
