Great idea for hiding the TV could work in any decor Fireplace or not! A sliding wall above the fireplace (a ventless model from Hearth Cabinet) conceals the television. Hide the TV in a variation on this theme?
fire places & hidden TV, wood panels-Cool concept but a TV should NEVER be put above a fireplace. It voids all warranties for the TV and the heat will basically destroy the TV. I do like the hidden TV concept.
