As the top provider of home theater installation in Bellevue, Seattle, and Scottsdale, our team at Wipliance has noticed an emerging interior design trend among our projects. While the technology of personal home theaters has jumped ahead leaps and bounds in the last decade, so has the desire to downplay those appliances from an interior design perspective. Many of our customers want all the bells and whistles included within their home theater but also want the TV or screen to disappear from view when they’re not watching, in order to maintain their chosen aesthetic.
At Wipliance, we totally get it. You want to have your cake and eat it too- with an epic home theater that feels like your home, and not a movie theater. Our experience in Home Theater Installation makes us more than qualified to install a home theater that works seamlessly with your home’s layout and interior design.
Here are the three ways to hide your TV in plain sight:
An attractive option to those who are looking to add a high tech screen to their home theater, a picture TV is exactly what it sounds like. Once you're done watching, you can have a pre-selected default image to display, much like a painting. If you’re thinking about a home theater installation, this is one of the easiest ways of quickly hiding your TV in plain sight.

Mirror TV’s have another obvious name, but if you see one in person, the effect can still be rather remarkable. Basically, a screen is mounted behind a pane of mirrored glass, and when the TV is switched on the image appears through the glass like a normal screen. Wipliance has partnered with locally-based Electric Mirror to offer a wide selection of mirror TV options that blend seamlessly into your home’s current aesthetic. More and more Seattle and Scottsdale home theater installations include mirror TVs, as folks appreciate the elegance and simplicity of this method of hiding your TV in plain sight.
Perhaps the most common method of hiding one’s TV in plain sight that we’ve worked with in our home theater installations in Scottsdale, Bellevue, and Seattle alike: the motorized TV mount. TV mounts are great because they give you the flexibility you need to enjoy entertainment from multiple angles within the same space. You don’t need to crowd around the tv, and once you’re done with your entertainment, the tv can easily be returned to its resting position snugly against the wall, making another great option if you wish to hide your tv in plain sight.

Taking it to the next level, Wipliance offers motorized TV mounting solutions from Nexus21 that disappear into furniture, floors, ceiling and more- making it even easier to design a space for multiple functions. If you like the idea of a picture TV but don’t want any light to emit from the screen, Wipliance can install MediaDecor by Leon Speakers- cleverly concealing your TV in a framed solution with artwork that magically rolls in front of your TV, or slides to the side to reveal the screen when you’re ready to watch.
Wipliance has installed countless home theaters for a number of different customers, each of which has their own particular desires and objectives that come with their home entertainment center. Whatever you’re looking for in your entertainment center, Wipliance has the experience and the understanding to help you achieve the Home Theater of your dreams.
