Unique Places to Mount Your TV
Here are some unusual TV mounts that are borderline genius:
In the Living Room
How can the living room, one of the commonest TV places, be a spot for unusual TV mounts? It’s all about positioning!
For instance, you can mount your TV inside a bookcase or a showcase.Alternatively, you can hide it behind a piece of art or mount it on a hinge that can flip the screen over! Whichever way you choose, it all boils down to creativity.
There is an assortment of options present in modern-day TV mount Collection hoisting and supporting entertainment centers in inconspicuous, space-saving nooks and crannies. In fact, they can be an excellent way to utilize unused space.
In the Bedroom
In the Bathroom
Apart from your bedroom, your bathroom is yet another personal space where you spend plenty of time. Given that it is one of the few places in the house when you are truly alone, how about personalizing this sanctuary?
A waterproof TV will help you relax and unwind as you get your dose of entertainment while soaking in the bath or answering nature’s call. Position the TV so that it is visible from the shower, sink, tub, vanity, or any key spots.
You could also choose to hide the appliance behind mirrored doors to have a sneaky little spot of your own!
Inside the Fireplace
The mantle above the fireplace is a cozy little nook that is often reserved for family portraits or TVs. However, this position is highly debated for several reasons. That aside, did you ever think that you could mount your TV inside the fireplace?
Of course, the fireplace must be in disuse before you renovate it as your TV hub. You can choose to position the TV in line with the frame of the fireplace, which brings the TV further into focus. To make innovative use of the design space, you can even keep the TV on a stand at the hearth.
If you wish to go absolutely high-tech on your unusual TV mounts, you can choose a motorized TV mount to move within the fireplace. And if you ever miss the crackling and flickering of a live flame, you can play the video of a fireplace without triggering any safety concerns!
On Your Patio
Are you afraid to step out of the house for the fear that you may miss out on your favorite show? Fear no more as you mount your TV on the patio or the back/front yard deck.
Think of all the barbeque parties that you can host during a big game. Or the pool parties in summer as you put on some Netflix. Want something intimate or romantic? Watch a sappy rom-com under the stars!
The outdoors is a perfect spot for entertaining guests or chilling out on weekends. Do bear in mind to weather-proof your TV setup to increase its life.
In the Kitchen
A kitchen TV mount may seem completely logical, yet this concept is quite unheard of and underutilized.
Think of cooking alongside your favorite celebrity chef or taking live directions from the Food Network! Considering that the kitchen holds all your food, why would anyone not have a TV in their kitchen?
You could mount it on the wall or hide it inside cabinets. You may also position it under the counter alongside the oven or above the refrigerator. Such placement allows symmetry while the TV can seamlessly blend into the background.
Rather than taking up counter space, optimize it by reinventing the kitchen TV mount that stashes the TV inside a compact slot when not in use. Use a motorized mount with a swivel system to get it out of its cave, and you can enjoy an immersive TV-viewing experience as you cook up a storm!

With all these unusual TV mounts, you may be itching to get started on your DIY project. But first, get all your instruments and equipment in order. And do check out the TV places to avoid before drilling in that hole!
