Since its introduction into the homes in the mid 20th century, the television screen becomes almost inseparable part from the main social areas design, lately, in some cases, form the bedrooms’ as well. In modern age, is a safe bet to assume that the majority of household have at least one television which leads designers and stylistic experts, on the word’s design scene, to search for a way to introduce this integral part of the home in a stylish and comfortable way, without allowing it to become an eyesore.
Although big and imposing with their large flat screens the modern TV sets and TV walls designs are at least not the bulky, large coffins from the dawn of the media-set era, which were definitely a challenge to fit into a rooms’ design without taking over it. Thanks to the advances in modern technologies, there are many ways in which designers can creatively fit a television silhouette in a seamless and stylish way according to the chosen decor stylistics. In this article, we explore in-depth and round up examples, specially selected for you, where the televisions seamlessly fit into space as if they were designed that way.
Keep in mind that the balance is important; your television shouldn’t be an opposing focal center or in unthoughtful contrast with a room’s decor, any more than it should find itself lost in an array of “cover-up” ornamentation. But luckily for us, the world’s leading designers had discovered and implemented a variety of ways in which the TV media set can fit into the most elaborate decor composition becoming a focal center instead of an eyesore.
Modern technologies and design innovations help even a simple TV wall to become a work of art – movable partitions and panels, dynamic constructs, usage of intriguing materials – all is possible – and technological advantages support the designers’ creativity. Let’s take a closer look.
Modern TV Wall Design Ideas
Modern trends in home furniture design fallow a broad spectrum of age inspirations – form the retro hints carried in the 60ts, 70 and even 80ts to ultra-modern Italian minimalism in shelves constructs and TV walls that can be presented as a light sketch on the wall. This variety allows us to choose a TV corner decor arrangement that is both; modern and unique, comfortable for us and in tune with the latest tendencies.
The most convenient and easy to assemble are the prefabricated TV walls created by furniture manufacturers. In this decor composition, we see one of them giving a nice contrast to the white brick wall with its dark surfaces and contours. The special design of trendy inside – lighting provides an excellent focal accent for the books and art elements collection. This is a good example of a modern TV wall construct – easy to assemble and with simple lines that still can introduce warmth and comfort with its chocolate color shades. Let’s see other examples as well.
Those three examples demonstrate the modern minimalism of TV wall exposition in the decor arrangement. Clear lines and functionality are the accents of the decor composition. In the first case, the TV screen is embedded into the partition wall, that contains the fireplace as well – so only an excellent classical move can make you take your eyes of the dancing fire.
In the second example, the TV is inserted between the working place and the bookshelves hinting that the usage of it, thanks to smart technologies, can be more as an enlarged computer screen than as a TV. And in the third decor composition, although the TV is large its insertion into the decor is light and easygoing- it is mounted directly into the wall with simplistic and clear-lined configuration, searching for pure and elegant functionality.
This is one of our favorite Brazilian decors of late – here the designer had and artistic and aesthetically stimulating approach to the introduction of the TV element into the design. It looks like a part of the color and silhouettes play of the composition. Laid on an artistic tile wall (a creative crafts project of the designers) the suspended TV is supplemented by the pure lines of the small custom-made bench underneath it and the beautiful silhouette of the Eames bird from the Vitra’s collection.
In those examples of modern, urban decors we have a search of contrasts – the TV wall is developed as a color or textural accent, and in addition stylish furniture details are introduced without disturbing the purity of lines. The elaborate character and individuality of composition comes from the small artistic details, unique furniture insertions, book elements, and family findings that decorate the surrounding shelves.
TV Wall Decor Ideas with Arches
The arches as an architectural element are characteristic for the architectural period between the Secession and the 70’s, but they can be used as a beautiful focal configuration of a TV wall introduction into the design. In the first example we selected for you, there is an elegant contrast between colors (blue and white) as well as a dynamic configuration of shapes and silhouettes. The trendy metal book-case structure adds to the dynamic play of the decor as well as the warmer accents introduced by the TV cabinet and the small organic details of the round coffee tables, giving a warmer, wooden hint to this urban decor composition.
Here we have a very stylish decor configuration with a TV hidden beneath the stairs in a minimalist composition with only the designers’ lamp standing out. In this arch composition of another artistic urban decor – this time in the center of Florence – the designers from Studio Pierattelli choose to create a warm color and textural configuration that has certain functionality in mind.
An arch that host a TV- wall, storage and a fire place – an epitome of urban romantics. Here we have a play of textures, shapes, materials, and colors, giving an artistic richness to the design idea. The fireplace has a marble base, the arch is rich, warm wood, and the simplicity of the TV niche is supplemented by the storage units in bold turquoise color. And all of that is surrounded by trendy brass and black wood accents – urban luxury and artistic riches.
TV Feature Wall with Storage
Here we have selected for you some functional and decoratively aesthetical solutions for storage walls with a TV on it. Implementing such a solution – which by the way is very felicitous for small urban dwellings, because it saves space and gives extra storage and tidiness for the overall composition- requires a general space design and the help of a professional designer or architect. It starts with assembling a specific wall niche for the TV screen, and the rest of the space is covered with the selected material (wood, plywood, laminate or veneer) securing different configurations of storage space. Usually, this kind of TV wall solution is custom-made for the concrete space.
This kind of furniture composition can be completely closed with minimalist final outlook or partially open with additional shelving for decorative items, books, or magazines depending on the owners’ and designers’ preferences.
TV wall with storage compartments is truly very modern and urban design solutions – elegant, tidy, and flexible, and its functionality does not contradict the overall aesthetic of contemporary styles.
In this attractive modern composition, we have one very intriguing extra – a sliding panel that can conceal or reveal the TV screen. This dynamic decor configuration offers, again, a contrast in materials and colors palette, with functionality and abundant extra storage in mind: affordable luxury and clever design solution for open-space premise configuration.
In this project, we have an especially composed niche for the TV set amongst the owners’ book collection. Which will prevail and attract your attention today – the book or the TV?
TV Niche Decorating Ideas
This type of TV set arrangement is one of the most popular in modern design. The catch with it is that the niche for the TV should be selected in an early stage of the home’s design so the construction work can be done accordingly. Doesn’t matter which of the following variations one will choose – a minimalist, flat white surface with integrated TV screen in it, a sink-in niche clad in contrasting dark wood, or a tidy sliding panel that hides or reveals the TV – the wall niche is a creative and trendy approach to situate the television seamlessly into your home decor.
The wall-niche configuration allows a wide variety of creative design solutions – a simple, open, and minimalist white square is one option- especially suited for a limited urban-dwelling because it saves space and thanks to its clear lines does not overcrowds the decor. But more elaborate constructs are also quite popular- hidden lighting scheme with integrated LED installation to underline the TV wall niche, contrasting materials play – dark veneer and chocolate wood – as it is in the second example we selected for you – is also quite a stylish option.
The third example here presents us with another contrasting niche configuration this time decided in the stylistics of modern minimalism and purity. In this case, the open niche combines both; open, clear-lined exposition and enough functional space to host decorative objects. The artistic insertions in this decor project are with organic, oblong contours and trendy modern silhouettes – including the Vitra’s bird sculpture and the fluid design chairs.
And the fourth example of this series has a more technical approach to the design solution – a sliding panel gives a tidy, hidden possibility for the TV screen to be made absent from the decor configuration when not in use – a very apt and stylishly executed option.
Built-in Room Divider & TV Media
Well, that is a beautiful solution for small urban dwellings. Doubling the role of a divider of space and TV screen holder, a flexible and creative TV wall has many intriguing implementations. The functionality of a dividing TV wall does not restrict its additional functions – decorative, as a library and book shelving structure, as a part of a lighting scheme or even as a table, cabinet, or storage space – everything is possible.
The variations of materials play can also be quite fun and creatively challenging- metal frames, wooden shelves, concrete countertops, or simplistic white surfaces are all an option for a modern, space dividing TV wall. Why not add some green plant life or vertical gardening as well? – go bold: the functionality is well in hand.
In those tree creative design solutions, the flexible and dynamic configuration of the dividing wall that hosts the TV screen is not so much used as a fictional knack but more like a stylish and elegant statement of modern design composition. Beautiful and useful. What more? In both cases, the partial dividing wall and TV location have one more functional side – they host a closed, storage space as well.
The organic and smooth lines of both constructs give a fashionable statement to the whole decor composition. The designers used small decorative objects placed on the floor to enhance the dynamic feel of the decor configuration – vases, totems, and leg-chairs in the shape of animals – cute and unique design solutions.
Dividers can be used in large homes as well as in small dwellings; their functional contribution to improving the space flow has multiple applications. Half wall or other types of partition is a matter of design choice, but placing the TV screen on the dividing wall is quite а stylish, functional, and popular choice either for small or large city apartments.
In this Asian decor project, we have a separation wall with pleasant geometrical construct and delicate pattern of fishbone lines – turning the half-wall partition with a TV into a significant focal center of the elegant decor composition with its traditional Asian hints.
In this urban apartment decor, the dynamic configuration of half wall divider extends into a dining table and a small shelf above the organic, wooden cabinet – a stylish, creative, and functional configuration. The neutral color tonality of the wall gives litheness to the decor configuration and is elegantly supplemented by the black decor details (including the TV screen itself) and finally warmed up by the wooden accent of the suspended cabinet.
The next example is of super luxurious and modernistic decor detail – a partition TV wall rotating around is axes, suspended above the floor, and featuring intriguing materials combination– a unique and stylish solution with a dynamic character. The combination between the shining solid surface of the main body and the fragile transparency of the glass shelves and side unites is also quite characteristic and felicitous – a perfect display for art and book collections.

Framing the exposition with specific geometrical, textural, or color accent creates an undeniable focal center that is perfect not only for displaying the TV screen, but it also offers a possibility for addition decor details showcasing.
The additional decor elements should be small and unobtrusive because the main object framed by this creative decor approach is in the center – the TV. But the picture-like frame decor approach still offers a dynamic possibility for playful combinations. Frames are quite fun and creative answer to the question – how to introduce the TV screen into the decor?
In the design examples, we selected below, the frames on the wall that host the television vary from modernistic, industrial, and playful to classic and even romantic as shapes, ornaments, and silhouettes. Let’s explore.
The last fey, TV wall frame designs, use a stylistic very close to the classic richness. The contemporary touch comes from its use – a vintage ornament of a picture frame hosting a TV screen – quite crafty and playful. Because of their unique presence, the interior around them also requires a specific expression – artistic and swank accessories, heavy draperies, shining metals and replicas of retro furnishing details all sustained in а minimalist color palette.
Because of the ornamental exuberance of the 18th-century replicas in the decor compositions, a restraint in the color and materials selection is recommended – light frames on the backdrop of dove – gray or caramel-wood walls, whiteness and usage of glass and porcelain details are best to fit into this stylistics.

The bohemian spirit of this interior composition and its expressive ethno and artistic elements are in perfect harmony with the rough, rich textures of the stone clad portion of the wall that hosts an unexpected accent – a modern minimalist TV wall decor.
In both of those interior examples, the TV stand is framed by a furniture construct and laid on a base of a marble slab. Quite a modem and graphically expressive approach to introduce the luxurious hint carried by the marble as a cladding element.

One more element from the Mid Century Modern stylistics – a beautiful, sliding lattice wall composed of golden wood stripes to hide the TV screen when not in use.
