There’s nothing the British public love more than getting comfortable and enjoying a good TV show or movie. Whether you’re catching up on the latest drama in your soap opera of choice, watching your favourite football team let you down yet again or indulging in the latest Hollywood blockbuster, our televisions play a huge part in most of our lives. It makes perfect sense, then, that our love of television often influences the design and layout of our homes. Joey Tribbiani from Friends said it best:
“You don’t own a TV? What’s all your furniture pointed at?!”
It’s a funny quote, however, like all great comedy it also has an element of truth to it. If you think about your living room, and any other living room you’ve visited, it’s likely that the main focal point is a TV. As such an important aspect of the home, it’s only natural that you’d want your TV and its appearance to look as fantastic as possible. This has led to many homeowners shunning the traditional television unit, opting instead to have a media wall installed.
What is a Media Wall?
A media wall is probably close to what you might imagine based on the name. It is essentially a wall within your home that is devoted to drawing focus to your television as its main feature. Whilst this may sound like the simple wall-mounted TV setup you’ve seen a million times before, a dedicated media wall elevates the concept to a whole new level.
Bespoke media walls can be designed to incorporate a number of different features, allowing you to ensure it meets your specific requirements and suits the style of your home. Popular choices include shelving for displaying ornaments, artwork, plants, candles and other home accessories, as well as cupboards and drawers in order to increase available storage space.
A media wall design trend which has been growing in popularity is the inclusion of a fireplace. Usually situated below the TV, a fireplace brings a further level of elegance and luxury to both your media wall and your room as a whole. These are an excellent use of the space and contribute an incredibly attractive element to any home, so it’s clear to see why media walls which incorporate a fireplace are becoming all the rage.
