20 Beautiful Living Rooms with Fireplace and TV Setups

So much time is spent in the living room; the room where you relax with a cup of coffee while reading a good book, or cocktail in the evening while you watch your favorite TV shows with our family. It’s homey, cozy, and the one room in the house where you feel the most comfortable. What really warms and cozies up a living room, is a fireplace for those chilly nights. Typically, the fireplace is the focal point of the room, but with the sizes you can get TV’s in today, most people are installing large flat screens, which can also be a focal point of the room. If you already have the fireplace installed, the key is to make the room work around both, which for the shape of some living rooms, this can be a bit tricky. So here are some ideas of how to make both work in your living room, whether you want the fireplace as the main focal point, or the TV, or both.

1. Design your room with the fireplace as the focal point

Depending on the shape, space and your priority is to keep the fireplace as the main focal point in your living room, you will want to arrange your furniture so that the main visual in the room when you are sitting on your couch and chairs, is the fireplace. Not all fireplaces allow for a flat screen to be hung above them and may require it be put on a separate cabinet or TV stand in another area of the living room. You may be able to, or can choose to set your TV cabinet close to the fireplace, but in this case, the priority will be to make sure that everyone in the room can see the fireplace, and see each other when visiting.

2. Design your room with the TV as the focal point

If your family loves their TV entertainment time, you can arrange the furniture in your room so that everyone has good visual contact with the TV and doesn’t need to strain to see it. The fireplace will still be in the room, maybe off to the side of the sitting area, or perhaps even behind the seating arrangement, but you can still feel its warmth, you just won’t have the same visual focus on it like the TV. But you will all have clear visual contact with your favorite shows in a comfortable seating arrangement.

3. Design your room with both as the focal point

If you want to keep both as the focal point of your room, and the shape and space allows you to, you can do this by getting a wall mount TV, if your fireplace allows for a mounted TV above it. If it doesn’t, try installing built-in shelving units on either side of the fireplace where you can set your TV system up so that you have clear vision of both. Some living rooms allow for a corner shelving unit close by the fireplace where you can set up your TV and still have views of both. You can arrange your seating so that both are easily viewed from any seat, and you can comfortably enjoy both.
