What can I do to fit a larger TV in my fireplace niche?

the 42x42 inch fireplace is ok, but the niche above it only allows for a 38" tv. there are 2 doors on wheels that slide out and close to hide the 38" tv. there is only 2 ft left above the niche.the niche is 3 feet deep and on the back wall are all the tv connections

  • Without construction that may be the largest tv that will fit. Can you post a photo? Maybe we can figure out other options.

    Agreed-a photo would help. TV niches are usually a bit short-sighted for that reason. Tech is always changing and screens keep getting bigger. The best things may be some drywall work.

    We had to build out a support, in the middle of the niche, to support a wall mount TV hanger. Once that was put in, and the wall mount, we were able to mount and hang the TV.

      the niche is 3x3x3 feet with outlets in back.

      sliding doors make it worse to send a cord thru the closed doors.


      the space above the tv niche is possible, but the tv would be hanging pretty high
