THERE’S a lot to be said for having a great big TV… but what if it didn’t have to suck all the attention away from the rest of the room?
Well, people are are increasingly looking for inventive ways to conceal their box so these camouflage TVs are set to be the next big thing.
As the Daily Mail reports, cleverly hidden TVs are growing in popularity… but they’ll cost you.
Prices start at least £999 if you want one for your own living room – but you can get some seriously sleek designs if you’re willing to fork out.
The Frame by Samsung offers an elegant solution to an unsightly mounted TV by disguising itself as a framed work of art when you’re not using it.
Priced at £999, the TV’s screensaver will display a painting of your choice and the Frame will make it look like the real thing by adapting the display brightness based on the light level in your living room.
Why ruin your living room with an unsightly TV when you can buy an ornate 19th century gold mirror which doubles up as one?
The decorative French TV mirror can be mounted on your wall in place of a TV, but its in-built screen means you can alternate between channel hopping and checking yourself out.
The only catch?
This magic mirror on the wall is the dearest of them all… and will set you back a staggering £3,795.
Binge and brush
If you want to go one step further than fitting a TV-mirror in your living room, then you can always get one for your loo.
The Bathroom Mirror TV, from Mirror Media, will cost you £2,868.
But you’ll be pleased to know for that price it is indeed waterproof – so no need to worry about ruining the TV if you like to binge and brush at the same time.
The high-tech chameleon screen
Samsung’s QLED TV comes with a whopping £1,999 price tag, but that’s the price you have to pay for a cutting-edge screen which literally blends into the decor.
When you’re not using the ultra-thin TV, it can display a photo of your wallpaper in such high resolution that it looks like the real thing.
The barely-there frame is thin enough that it doesn’t shatter the illusion, so as long as you upload a decent snap of your wallpaper, the TV screensaver creates a convincing chameleon effect.
This beast of a tele can also show weather info, news headlines and the time on this blended-in screen, and then switch back to working like a normal TV with just a click of the remote.
Hob’s your uncle
The Fusion Kitchen Back Splash TV may set you back £2,719, but for serious chefs that’s a small price to pay to get your Great British Bake Off fix beamed straight to the hob.
The screen is shielded behind a glass or mirrored splashback which will protect the screen from any spitting sausages, and is perfect for cooking enthusiasts who like to watch recipe videos as they go.
Kipping up appearances
If you’re a sucker for Netflix and chill then you could do a lot worse than a bed which has a concealed TV built in.
The DFS Inspire bed is just that, with a remote-controlled panel in the footboard which pops up to reveal a TV holder.
It’s priced at £998, but unfortunately you have to provide the TV yourself.
One minute it’s an antique cabinet, the next it’s a TV stand.
This nifty piece of furniture fits nicely in any retro-styled living room, and then when you press a button on the remote a TV pops out, Transformers-style.
The Burr Walnut Stand with Pop-Up TV can be yours for £1,035 – with a range of cabinet styles to choose from.
