Whether you choose to have them over and under or side by side some of these winning fireplace and television combinations could help you find a truly harmonious look.

Texture twist. You can use texture when combining a fireplace and television on the same wall. The extra texture actually makes the components subtler; the eye skims over the TV and fireplace instead focusing on the wood stone and cubbies. Even if your fireplace is front and center you can camouflage it by using the same neutral colors for the firebox as the surrounding stone.

Choose 7.1 surround sound. The latest in surround-sound technology requires eight separate audio channels to truly immerse viewers in the film. But it can be difficult to decide whether you should try to disguise the speakers or make them a feature of the room. Plenty of speaker manufacturers make devices that both sound good and look beautiful. Wood paneling offers a great combination of acoustics and aesthetics. Remember to check the wiring options when looking to make a purchase — no matter how good the speakers look a tangle of cables is always a turn-off.

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.
