There are a lot of challenges when it comes to styling a home and one of them is trying to fill the space around a massive television set. It's not enough to leave it hanging simply on a wall—especially after all the hard work you've put into designing the rest of the space. Don't fret, there are design tweaks you can do to help you work around this heavy household staple! Here are some ideas you can try: 

1. Hang up some artwork. 

This is probably the easiest way to keep the space around your TV set from falling flat. However, it is important that you avoid putting up space fillers and concentrate on pieces that you love as these are items you will see on a daily basis—even while you're binge-watching your favorite show. 

2. Add a console table. 

Utilize the space under your TV by installing extra storage. You can use it to organize spare pillows, throws or even a medium-sized DVD c0llection which can work in a two-door cabinet (as seen in photo). Don't forget to decorate the surface with a few statement pieces, too!

3. Frame it with vignettes. 

Distract the eye from the huge black box by fitting slim shelving around it—this will help seamlessly blend it into the wall. You can also add books, ornaments or plants to keep the space interesting, especially if the telly isn't turned on. 

4. Keep it bare. 

If all else fails, don't do anything. Instead, focus on styling the other areas of the living room and create another focal point as a diversion from the television. This tropical-inspired living area (as seen in photo) used a neutral palette with hints of black to go with the standard set. 

5. Keep it concealed. 

If you can't stand the look of a bulky piece in a minimalist living area, consider having a sliding panel built so all you have to do is close it when it's not in use—out of sight, out of mind!
