DIY Project: TV Framing From a Budget Hotel in Berlin

If you're a constant traveler (and you're not doing the hostel thing everyone's so crazy about), you might take notice to some pretty nifty ideas hotels have to offer these days. Take this budget hotel in Berlin, for example. To make up for a small space, they've built little mini boxes around the room for architectural interest and extra storage, but also incorporated it around a flat screen TV to help streamline the look. Now let's see how you would pull off a similar style, eh?

First, we imagine you'll need some flat cables, unless you want HDMI and power cables ruining your floating LCD look. No worries, we've covered that subject to death over here.

Now what else? Ah yes - the framing. Wooden framing is a fairly simple process - just measure, cut, and glue. We suggest using the lightest wood you can find to avoid any potential danger to your LCD screen (but not particle wood - duh). Just be sure to cut those angles precisely and take those measurements twice to ensure a very snug and fit box.

Luckily, since it's only the TV that will be floating around, you don't have to worry about speaker wire going all over the place too much. But if you do, be sure to check out Flatwire or Wiremold Raceways. They'll definitely help you create that cohesive look that will have all your technophile friends complementing on your serious mad skillz.
