Traditional living room with TV area

To avoid the TV dominating the room, tuck the screen away in a bay window or recess. This George Smith footstool is a good idea for children or when extra seating is needed and baskets are a simple storage solution for DVDs. Avoid glare around the TV by fitting ‘bottom up’ roller blinds at the windows and paint a bespoke TV unit to match the scheme so that it blends in.
