Another version: in this case, the TV cabinetry is cleverly designed to match the panels built into the box around the fireplace. When the doors are closed, they just look like the panelling that surrounds the rest of the room. The key to making this work, again, is the placement of the couches – when they’re set perpendicular to the fireplace like this, you’re not expecting to look at anything.

Avoid the TV spatWhen it comes to televisions, invariably one person wants a huge 60-incher and the other would prefer a dainty model half that size. A 45-inch TV is the obvious compromise, but there are plenty of other options too.

10. Don’t let TV take over your living roomI love sitting down and watching a good film or gripping drama, but I don’t want my TV – or any technology for that matter – monopolising my living space. So, don’t automatically angle all your seating towards your flatscreen. Instead, opt for a more communal layout, with sofas facing each other to promote good conversation. Try hiding your TV behind sliding doors (or even a set of curtains) to make it magically disappear for the evening.TELL USDo you have any home habits you’d like to break?
