How to Style your Media Wall

Media wall fire

Have you had your eye on a media wall for a while, but you’re struggling to visualise it in your home? Or are you simply looking for inspiration for your upcoming renovation? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve rounded up some of our favourite installations to spark your imagination for your next project.

A hugely popular interior design trend, media walls act as an attractive yet practical way to combine your flat screen TV and living room heating into one super stylish unit. Not only this, but each media wall is entirely bespoke. Once you have selected your preferred electric fire model, your installation will be made to measure and tailored to your personal taste, allowing you to make the best use of your space and achieve your home makeover of dreams!

Made to Stand Out

A media wall installation will create a striking centre piece in any room, but there are endless ways to enhance and modify your design to make it individual to you. A media wall usually becomes the main feature wall of the room it is situated in, and some homeowners opt to amplify this further by painting the media wall in a different colour to the rest of the room. A pop of colour effectively draws the eye and really makes the design stand out! It can also be a great way to perfectly tie the interior of your space together – you might want to match the colour of your cushions or curtains with your feature wall.

We love this gorgeous forest green media wall created by Midland Smooth Finishes!

Alternatively, those preferring a more subtle effect might choose a more neutral colour such as the below:

Maximising Space

We often see Solution Fires customers adding symmetrical alcoves to their media wall display, providing aesthetically pleasing storage and a stylish way to display accessories, books, or treasured family photos. For added effect, you can even illuminate your shelves with cleverly situated recessed spotlights, as demonstrated below by our retailer Fires & Stoves in Chester. This must be one happy customer!

Thinking Outside the Box

While a media wall is typically fitted in a living room, this isn’t the only place they belong in the home! It’s perfectly possible to upgrade your bedroom TV with the addition of an electric fire for the ultimate cosy feel. Not sure you have the space for a full media wall in your bedroom? A neat corner installation is the ideal solution if you are limited on space, but still creates the wow factor! Take a look at this incredible example by @supplymyfire for inspiration:

The Finishing Touches

Once your media wall is installed and ready to enjoy, it’s time to accessorise and add your own personal touch! We’re loving the way @homeonhardwick has styled her media wall with the addition of a large wicker basket and luxurious blankets, accentuating the warm and welcoming feel of her Solution Fire!

Or if you are a nature lover, bring the outside in with a statement houseplant, like this stunning example fitted by Midland Smooth Finishes.
