TV over fireplace, how to make it work
We are renovating our family room and would like to mount a TV over a wood-burning fireplace. We need to replace our old firebox. 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. I have also posted in the fireplace forum. My questions are:
If you have a TV over your fireplace, how do you like it?
How big is your TV ? (we are thinking 42" or 50")
How many inches above the floor is the bottom of the TV?
How many inches above the floor is the mantle?
How many inches above the floor is the hearth?
What type of fireplace do you have?
Is the TV recessed into the wall above the fireplace?
Did you have to put a 30 degree elbow in the flue to recess the TV?
Any other advice?
Any pictures would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance
