The rapidly decreasing costs of LCD TV’s has resulted in bigger screens for most households. The most used location for these to be placed, estimated at 75%, is above the fireplace in the central room of the home. The increase in the screen size has caused both women and designers have been having serious problems with a 50-70% black glass object as the central piece and main point of the living room. From a distance it is simply a visual or mechanical change when the television is hidden, to most it changes the entire atmosphere of the room. Even when the display has been turned off, attention is either consciously or unconsciously drawn towards the blank screen. This is not simply a figment of peoples imaginations, it is real, and it has a direct effect on both the decoration and atmosphere of the room.
