There are many ways to decorate the space to make it look like a work of art. You can display your favourite decor with shelving, install TV wall cabinet storage, or keep it simple with interior details. 

Take inspiration from these 25 modern TV wall ideas as you decorate your entertainment space.

1. White wall panels

Going all white for your interiors doesn’t have to be boring. Adding panels creates visual interest and helps to soundproof your room with the insulation.

2. White, black, and wood

An elegant mix of colours you can use is black, white, and brown. You can use wood and dried plants to bring in some texture. This approach brings a classic modern style to your interiors.

3. Framed TV

Centre your TV in a wall panel to create a framed appearance. It’s a great way to add detail to a seemingly plain wall. Don’t be afraid to add some elements like a floor lamp and console to surround the frame for more depth.

4. Black and white

Whether or not your home’s interiors work with black and white, using this colour combo for your shelving and console creates a clean and uncluttered look.

5. Window storage

Incorporate some more shelf space next to your TV. This small but clever addition can work as storage for books and display centres for knickknacks and frames.

6. TV firewall

Take chilly nights indoors with this idea. Mounting your TV over the fireplace is a great way to maximise your space, especially in cold weather.

7. Wood paneling

8. Cubby windows

Want a different way to display unique art pieces? Use cubby panelling as your TV stand for a change! Putting bins in the cubby is also great for storage!

9. Tucked away

Another sophisticated way to frame your equipment is nestling it in the middle of a built-in tv cabinet storage. It’s a fantastic way to maximise the walls around your entertainment.

10. Accent wall

Play up your modern built-in TV wall unit designs by switching the colour from the rest of your home. It adds interest, and you can also design your space with more colour options. 

11. Grey feature wall

If you prefer a brutalist approach to your interior, opt for concrete or cement walls. It’s perfect for a dark, moody approach to your style.

12. Marble feature

Marble is a scratch-resistant and durable material you can use for the interior. Because of its veined design, it also adds a level of luxury to your space.

13. Decorated consoles

Displaying unique vases and art pieces on your console can effortlessly elevate what might seem like a bare TV wall. 

14. Fresh florals

15. Assorted storage

16. Symmetrical designs

Plants are always an excellent option for bringing life into any room. It’s a great way to add colour without committing to expensive furniture you’re not sure you’ll still love in a couple of years.

Love plants? Make the most of it and allow an abundance of leaves to cascade over your console for a cosy, homey vibe.

24. Floating shelves

If you aren’t a fan of massive shelves on either side of your TV, floating shelves are a good idea. They take up less space and achieve that chic look. 

25. Painted wall
