TV over fireplace
We are renovating our family room and would like to mount a TV over a wood-burning fireplace. Opinions seem to be mixed as to how well this works out. We have been to three local fireplace stores and no one can recommend a set-up for us. We have 7'9" ceilings. My questions are:
If you have this set-up, how do you like it?
How big is your TV (we're thinking 42" or 50")?
How many inches above the floor is the bottom of the TV?
What is the height of your mantle?
How high is the hearth?
What type of fireplace do you have?
Is the TV recessed?
Did you have to do a 30 degree elbow in the flue to recess the TV?
Any pictures would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
