How Many Ways Are There to Hide a TV?
Sometimes it takes creative ideas to come up with a solution to a problem. Here are a number of ideas on how to hide a TV in your house.
1. Folding Screen
This is a project I recently completed where I had the challenge of hiding the TV in the Living Room. If you want to read all about it check out the blog post I wrote on Jill Shelvin Design here. There were a number of issues that prohibited a simple slide open up a cover. While I was searching the internet for ideas these are just a few I came across and wanted to share.
From simple to custom built-in screens there are a number of ways to hide the TV
This is a great idea for a formal Living Room and somewhat the inspiration for the idea I had for using a screen in my project.
To achieve this look you will have to either have a screen that already folds in quarters or make one.

2. Custom Built Sliding Screen
Here a built-in was created with sliding floor to ceiling slat panels that move to expose or cover the TV.
This is another example of a moving panel in a built in that has a moving screen that works seamlessly to cover the TV when you don’t want to see it and is a decorative feature when you do.
This is another example of a sliding panel which I think looks great when closed but off when open. I don’t care much for the asymmetry of the look.
Sleek and sophisticated! Love how seamless this custom built-in is. It takes Expert craftsmanship to create something so simple to look so good. However, this look is limited as it is Very contemporary. But you could take the idea and run with it for any style.
Another example of sliding panels, this ENTIRE wall had to have been thought out with great detail and planned perfectly to execute.
3. Mirrored Panels
I like how this folding mirror looks, but again this was thought out as you can see there is a niche in the wall to accommodate the depth of the TV and in addition, they have built a frame to hold the mirror as well.
4. Pop Up Cover
I have used this fold up panel system for clients in the past.
Admittedly, their idea not mine as I am not a big fan of the open look, however, if you rarely watch TV this would be a good way to cover and hide the TV.
5. Custom Integrated
This is another project of mine that I did for a client in New York. I custom designed the entire wall to create a seamless look and worked with the builder’s cabinet maker to create.
So there you have it a few different ideas to get your creative juices flowing if you need to hide a TV in your home.
Love to see what you all come up with, so please share any projects you’ve done.
