Can you believe flat screen TVs have been mostly affordable for about 20 years? Aren't we lucky that they are both affordable and thin? There are many ways to display our sets including mounting on the wall, ready for view. If you don't want to look at a blank screen when the set is off, there are some clever ways to hide a wall-mounted TV. There are also handsome ways to style your TV, whether it be atop a flat surface or in a bookcase. Let's have a look at some of the best ideas.
