Hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year with a side of the big NFL game? With a house full of friends, family, football and food, we’ve got tips on how to update your entertainment space for a more inviting, kid-friendly room with better flow.
- Wall mount your TV! So, you’re still living in the stone age with a big bulky media center, but did you know that every 24 minutes tipped furniture or a falling TV sends an injured child to the emergency room? If you’re going to have a full house with kids and pets, reduce these 100% preventable accidents and immediately increase your living room’s square footage by wall mounting your flat screen TV.
- Give that flatscreen a facelift! You’ve waited all this time to wall mount your TV, and now you want to make sure to do it right. Consider HIDEit Mounts’ easy-to-install (in 20 mins. or less) wall mounts for electronics -- they hide all your gaming, cable and streaming devices (and cords) BEHIND your flat screen TV. Your new, safe TV area can now also be modern, sleek and stylish!
Expert tip: Think you’ll be adding to your home tech collection for the holidays? Invest in an TV wall bracket with a full-motion, extension arm so you can add to your electronics collection and mount them all behind the TV with ease!
- Provide flat spaces. If game day is the focal point of your Thanksgiving get together, everyone will need a place to put down their drinks, appetizers and even dinner plates. Invest in a few inexpensive TV tray tables and position around the room. With decorative individual placemats, you can conceal the tray tables as festive furniture.
