In this Toronto living room, a couple of elements are at play. A slim fireplace allows a large TV to sit above it without too much neck strain by viewers watching from the sofas or chairs. Also, a dark (possibly marble) surround keeps the TV from creating too much of a black-box effect in the space.
So, with the pads on the legs or on the bases of your furniture you can slide items much easier. You can also attach sliders on pieces of equipment like a fridge, a washing machine and others. Importantly, moving objects with sliders under them does not damage neither the objects nor the floor which often happens using other means to move larger pieces.
This is definitely not for everyone, but if you’re looking to create a fresh, airy home, consider a concrete floor painted white and sealed. It creates a crisp backdrop that really allows light to bounce around and allows natural elements like verdant plants and natural wood to really show their character.
We recently pitted two professionals head to head in a debate-style conversation to figure out if it’s a good idea to hang a TV over a fireplace. Well, it’s safe to say the issue is far from resolved, but innovative solutions to pair a TV with a fire feature continue to arise.
