Let it go through the roof. These flues can rise up and through dramatic roof overhangs with minimal impact. Just make sure you allow for the proper clearances by following local building codes and the manufacturer's specifications.

Prefabricated travertine or limestone. For a very traditional look consider a prefabricated fireplace of travertine or limestone. This look requires a mason experienced with framing as well as installation. Heavier pieces may need to be reinforced. $7.000 to $10.000 for prefabricated pieces shipping (which can be high due to weight and crating) and installation.

While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all it is meant to be seen at least some of the time) keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles making this technique doubly effective.

Sort your seating. What good is a home cinema without cinema-quality seating? With a home control system and D-Box technology you can have your seating rumble and vibrate in time with the action up on the big screen! Another option to consider especially if the room will be used by children is soundproofing. Not only does soundproofing mean you can turn up the volume; it also ensures that the little ones’ shouts of excitement won’t be heard by anyone next door.

Keep the glass box glass. On the outside the metal chimney remains the vertical totem it has always been. But now the glass wall can span up over and in front of the chimney. There's no need to have a chimney that breaks up and separates the elevation into pieces.

Lulu & Georgia had me at royal blue. Its Florence ottoman provides a killer pop of color and a dash of glam for a bedroom or living space.

Let’s face it — media rooms can quickly become a mess of tangled cords and unsightly technology despite our best intentions. Streamline your space with media storage and accessories to hide electronics and organize necessities.

Again asymmetry can be your friend here as placing the TV off to one side in a wide bookcase or pair of cases will keep it from feeling like the visual focal point. Depending on the furniture arrangement this can also leave a TV well-positioned to be watched from a sectional sofa or favorite chair even if it’s off-center from some of the other seats.

Avoid architectural features. The flue can also bend and be rerouted to avoid architectural features such as overhangs. Again (this can't be stressed enough) follow the building codes and manufacturer specifications when doing any chimney installation.
