Interesting idea. Still after mounting countless TVs above fireplaces I love the look but can't stand looking all the way up to watch it.

Totaly agree with that, the fireplace should be above the TV.

I laughed hysterically when I read that...but it would look unique to have a small fireplace above a big TV with a huge mantel around it.

Here's a few shots that I have on my phone...my neck almost hurt installing a few of em.

I love the look but its no fun to watch. I had a client who purchases hi-res digital artwork and has it stream to each TV when the TV isn't in use....that way your TV above your fireplace is now art.

Mount up a thin TV with a picture-mount or a premier WTFM and it doesn't look like a TV anymore:



Or put your artwork in-front of the TV and use a motorized panel:
