Which Would You Choose: TV in the Living Room, or Not? - Guest Post by Tobi Fairley

A few weeks ago, I asked all of you whether I should have a television in the breakfast room or not – and did I ever hear from you! That’s probably one of the most hot-button topics I’ve ever had on Which Would You Choose! Having TVs in rooms other than the living room or family room does have its drawbacks, but this week I want to know what you think about TVs in the living room itself. 

If you have seen the previous photos of my living room, you know my husband already has a very large TV ready to go, so I’m a bit stuck in this room. On the other hand, I have designed a serene and sleek look for the living room, and a big TV doesn’t really fit into my plan. I have some ideas for hiding the television that might work – or I could move the television into a different room altogether.

So what would you do? Would you keep the TV in the living room? And if you did, would you camouflage it? And how would you do that? I’m looking for some great ideas here, so please tell me what you would do in the comments area below! 

Help me make my serene living room dream a reality! Thanks for your help!
