Art form. This living room artistically combines the television and fireplace on one wall. The television is offset by the hearth for balance while the streamlined fireplace almost disappears under the recessed cavity when it's not on. A surround like this can easily be customized into full-overlay doors for extra living room storage.

Separate. Separating the television and fireplace within the same space is difficult to get right but it’s done masterfully here. The wood paneling running up the wall and over the ceiling to surround the fireplace wall makes for a perfect integration — it almost feels as if they are on the same wall. Think carefully about your furniture plan when you have two focal points in a living room. What would you and your guests prefer to see — the fireplace or the television?

Let the fireplace float. By placing windows around the fireplace (and placing the metal chimney on the outside) there's little to block the light and view so the interior stays more open and bright. The fireplace seems to float in the wall rather than being anchored to one spot by a heavy masonry chimney.

Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!

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.

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.

It would even address the issue of your lack of organization. Media storage would see to it that your files are kept together in an orderly fashion everyday. You don't have to stack your files one CD after another CD just to discover one day that you cannot access on a specific data anymore. Piling CDs carelessly would induce scratches on the surface of the disc therefore making it less usable. Proper storage would see to it that your files are arranged properly and accordingly.

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.
