I've just moved into a new place, its beautiful but the one thing I really dislike is the wall mount for the television.

I hate wall-mounted tv and have just bought a nice tv unit. I dont want to remove the brackets incase the landlord isnt happy about it and there is a socket for my heating controller and a bunch of wires for the satellite sticking out too which I can't change but wont be using.

I was thinking I could put a screen or something against the wall, with my TV unit in front of it? Would that work or look silly?

Any ideas appreciated!

Yes a screen would like nice or you could drape a
Wall hanging over it if you’re allowed to put a hole in the wall for a hook that is!

Like this perhaps?

No need for holes! Use a Command Hook - like this:

This is a medium sized one, but if you want to hang something heavier, they have bigger ones. And they really do work! I have loads in my house, no issues at all.

Those look ideal Quantum. I have some pictures and things I'd like to hang as well, thankyou!

Does anyone have any links to any affordable wall hangings? I cant spend too much!

Pick up a piece of fabric you like, cover a piece of hardboard (or at a push strong cardboard) with the fabric - cheap as chips wall hanging.

A big canvas might work if you can get one wide enough. Buy one with artwork on it or get a photo printed. They have a void behind.

Eg this one is 1m wide but you can choose whatever image you like. IKEA might be worth a look too.

Look at Redbubble for an infinite range of wall hangings
