I’m starting to renovate/decorate my living room and have a question about tv placement. Currently my flat screen tv is above my fireplace. There is no mantle, so I have a 9 shelf bookcase beside the fireplace at the moment holding my dvd’s, cable box and bluray player. My living room is small, and I currently have a small sectional couch in the corner facing the tv and fireplace.  I would like your opinion on whether I should move my tv to the other side of the room (where the corner of my couch is) and have my sectional face it (the back of the sectional would be to the patio door.) Or if I should keep my tv above my fireplace and build a mantle to have my cable box and dvd player on it. The problem I have right now is that there is no balance in the room because of the large bookcase beside the fireplace, I feel as though it takes away from the wood burning fireplace.HELP!!!!
