    Cover your TV with a sliding wall

    Fit a panel that slides in front of the TV when it’s not in use.

    ‘Set the screen flush into a plasterboard wall, then the panel can be brought across from a pocket slot in the adjacent wall,’ says Hugo Tugman, architectural expert from Architect Your Home.

    ‘Then just treat the sliding screen like another wall. Hanging an artwork is a good way to confirm the illusion – just ensure the frame is slim enough not to be damaged when the panel slides into the recess.’

    How much will it cost?

    Architect Your Home built this panel for £1,000, including mechanism, labour and materials.
