22. This TV arrangement in the living room is a clever one. Though placed oddly in the room, the design of the unit is such that it gives an artistic bent to the whole scheme.
Make your TV mobileA great trick to ensure non-interference for both, the watchers and non-watchers, is to mount the TV on a mobile contraption, such as a trolley with wheels. This way you can wheel the screen to whichever part of the room you like. Given current wifi technology, this tactic would work like a charm for those wanting to separate TV-watching from other activities.Read more: Furniture Arrangement: A Guide to TV Room LayoutsWhere to Place the TV in the Living Room?Tell us: Do you have your TV in the living room?

9. The black sectional with an ottoman has ample space for people to put up their feet and enjoy TV-time. The white walls and ceiling contrast with the seating, creating a striking visual. The curving TV stand on wheels acts as a flexible unit – it can be pushed discreetly to the side when not in use, hiding it from the main seating area.

A TV holder like the one in this photo hides the back of the TV and is nice looking from behind. It will not hide all of the cables, so I would recommend this type when you have just a minimum number of components. I would be tempted to place a box on the base of this that housed the components and their cables with a power strip inside. It is ideal to have no more than one power cord emerging from your cabinet. Tip: If you cannot install a floor-mounted electrical outlet, then use the best cable cover you can get to hide the cord and make it lie flat on the floor as it runs to your wall outlet. Remember you are using a power strip inside your cabinet so you only have to hide one cord. I’ll say more about this later.
