Designed TV Frame, closed

Designed TV Frame, open
A collage of small-framed mirrors forms doors that look like a piece of artwork when closed, and reveal the television screen when they are open.

The least expensive versions are usually those that fit flush around the TV screen. Larger, heavier frames require a hanging bracket and are more complicated to install. A homeowner can choose a frame to complement the rest of the interior design, whether it is traditional, contemporary or transitional.

For those who want the screen completely out of sight, there is a glass application that is clear when the TV is on, and becomes a mirror when it is turned off. A more formal look is a unit with doors that slide over the screen to look like furniture or artwork.

Yet another option is to have a painting on a motorized canvas that rolls up when someone wants to watch TV, and unfurls over the screen when the set is turned off. "You can have a piece of artwork custom designed, or choose a stock one, but it has to be a canvas that rolls," Kubli says. "It's a high-end option, but it can be beautiful." ■
