Televisions: For the Bedroom or Not?


There have been so many theories on whether or not a television is fit for a bedroom and I doubt I'll ever change my stance that this is the one room in your house where it just doesn't belong. Nothing about a TV screams relaxation, which is the sole purpose of your bedroom, right? And if you're like me, you can never just watch TV for just a few minutes. You kind of get sucked into it, and before you know it, you've watched how many shows, wasted valuable time and have been cheated out of your much-needed rest.

I personally opt for a TV only in my living room and lately, I've been getting frustrated with the look of it as silly as that sounds. It just seems to eat up any space. I'm trying to figure out if there's a more attractive way to keep it on display, whether it's as simple as hiding it behind a cute armoire or just mounting it to a wall in a way that makes sense for my space. I'll figure it out somehow.

It's so funny to read this because, I agree with you, but at the same time, I am a tv junkie. So sometimes I find myself in bed with the laptop & netflix(I know, bad.)
Happy to have found your blog!

@homestiloHa. I totally understand. I'm always torn as well and can never part with my laptop. Thanks for stopping by.

I have no problem with tvs in bedrooms or visible period. However I did a post on camouflaging tvs with a gallery wall...

Have you considered to put the TV on industrial electrical wires and move it where you go ? it is the best possible space conservator and the best part is you can also make it lying flat on the ceiling - it is one of the most fundamental ideas that i have seen
