Tv cut out over fireplace- need some ideas
I have a cutout over my fireplace for a tv. The problem is it will only fit a 42 in. I need some ideas of how to box this in and build amantle
If over mantle should be far enough to be ok. We had an electrician come in and add a plug and cable box that would fall behind the tv. Have your TV mount located so the outlets don't fall where it need to go. It was worth the trouble, no ugly wires , looks great. It also a home improvement. If you're going to use your stereo or surround sound, go ahead a run a chase to where your components will go to put the wires in the wall. Again a little more work and drywall repair but very convenient.
All you need to do is find out if the heat from the gas heater goes up to where you want the TV to be located. If it doesn't, you will be fine. There are plastic pieces that you can get at places like Home Depot, etc. to cover all the wires, even curves, corners and they come in widths to fit more than one wire. They are easy to put up and you can paint them to match your wall cover. If the covers still bother you, you can always put up knick knacks or vases, statues, etc. to put in front of them so that they are not as noticeable. I hope this helps you Nichole!
No problem. Got mine over my wood burning fireplace. I did install my own outlets and connections for the TV in the wall behind it.
Just thought about the fact that the nearest outlet is on the connecting wall! Ugh
Its a big no whatever other people say this will cut down the life of your tv in half they hate heat and are not made to withstand any sort of external heat.
