The Reason HGTV Stars Often Skip TVs In Their Home Renovation Designs
TVs are often conspicuously absent from most HGTV room and home reveals. Design expert and HGTV host Leanne Ford gave a few good reasons why this is the case.
One of the main reasons to forgo a TV is the ungainliness of a large black screen that glares and reflects things like camera crews and equipment, which you don't want to show.
Ford said, "I actually don't love a TV in a room anyway and I always do my best to hide it within the space. I think staring at [...] art is much lovelier than a big black box."
"Your television doesn't always have to be the focal point of the room," noted Ford. "Look for other spots in your living space that aren't over your mantel."
