More and more people are opting to install a TV bracket above a fireplace. This Fall we remodeled a client’s traditional fireplace into a more modern look with the TV mounted over the mantle. Here is an idea for how to camouflage the bracket.
The client was thrilled with the clean travertine stone and the new modern fireplace. But, what to do with that ugly bracket?! We made a cover out of masonite that just covered the bracket and wires without impacting the motion of the TV and then had our faux painter finish it to match the stone behind it exactly.
The result? A virtually invisible bracket cover for a clean, finished look.
This TV pulls forward on it’s bracket and then moves downward for optimal TV viewing. When this happens it automatically turns off the fireplace below so that heat doesn’t ruin the television over time.
