Where to put the television in the living room

When we design the distribution of furniture and elements of a living room we must take several factors into account, and the television placement It is quite important, since in most cases the sofas or armchairs will be placed in relation to it to be able to enjoy a good movie or television program in our relaxing time.

We must take into account especially in the placement of our television the main light sources like windows, since during the day they will create reflections on the screen. For this reason, the most advisable thing is that the windows are not located either on the wall facing the TV to avoid reflections, nor on the wall itself, since the backlight can be very uncomfortable. If this distribution is impossible, it is best to have good curtains or blinds to be able to throw them when we are in front of the television and avoid these adverse effects.

Once we have solved the problem of light sources, we must think about whether we want place the tv on a piece of furniture, integrate it into a mural or place it directly on the wall. If we want a minimalist decoration, the last option will be the most appropriate, and in this case it becomes one more decorative element like a painting, and can break with the sobriety of a smooth wall. We must also know that there are furniture specially designed for this household appliance that allows us to keep it hidden when it is not being used, this system is perfect for more classic or vintage decorations where the television becomes an element that disrupts the decoration of the room .

As for the the placement of the sofas, the best thing is that they are located right in front of the television, and if there is more than one they should try to position themselves so that the screen can be seen as parallel as possible to avoid back and neck pain.
