TV over fireplace too high!
The previous owners of our house set up their tv above their fireplace and had a sound system built in around it so naturally we placed our tv there as well.We started to notice the tv was too high and our neck was starting to hurt.Recently we just switched to a 65" tv and I felt that the height situation had to be changed.Here are some of the options I have come up with:-modify the existing mantle to eliminate the middle portion and be able to bring the tv down about 15" or so (see photo with area marked in red)- get a new mantle, smaller, lower profile?- no mantle, but then what to do design wise?We don't wish to do any large renovation.I have seen all the threads about not being a good idea to have it above fireplace but currently that's the place for our tv in our house so that's not going to change.It is a gas fireplace FYI.Thank you for any helpful tips!
