flat panel tv


Hey, any one here ever heard of painting a wall for a flat panel tv black? Someone said that it worked well-the tv frame blended into the wall and it looked more like the image was just there on the wall(if that makes sense?)

When I finish entertainment pieces, we always paint the inside of the T.V. section black. It enhances the picture and also hides any wires. Really a very clean look.

Are you using a flat black, or something with a little sheen?

Movie Theaters will usually paint the back wall a dark color like black.

I could see painting a nook black, or the entire wall if the room was dedicated to home theater use, but I personally would not paint an entire wall black if I did things in the room other than watch the TV.

That would not be unusual for home theater type apps.
