Samsung Frame TV In Our Living Room

Sharing is caring!

We are officially Samsung Frame TV fanatics in our home now- with one Frame TV in the bedroom and one Frame TV in our living room now.
It says a lot about how you feel when you go back and purchase an item a second time – and buy the exact same thing.

Our Samsung Frame TV 

This post is sponsored by Samsung and Sam’s Club. I originally wrote a not sponsored Samsung Frame TV Review that you can read here, when we bought the Frame TV for our bedroom. Samsung asked me to write up this sponsored post today.

Remember last Christmas how I came up with ways to distract from our ugly TV that sat over our fireplace front and center? I created the world’s biggest holiday garland to distract from the world’s ugliest black box!
With an open concept living space, our ugly TV was seen from almost every angle downstairs, and from every entrance into our home. Although my husband saw nothing wrong with this… it couldn’t be farther from what I envisioned.

I have been vocal on this blog about my regret over building our home with a TV so prominently displayed. I didn’t think carefully through that whole design and set up!
So it wasn’t a matter of if we would be solving this problem with the Samsung Frame – but when.

Recently, the ugly black box was replaced with a piece of framed art… or really, the Samsung Frame TV, which is so pretty on its own- with or without a holiday garland!

After testing out the waters and LOVING what the 2019 Samsung Frame TV did for our master bedroom (you can read all about that original, not sponsored Samsung Frame TV Review post here), we ordered the  Frame TV from Sams Club.

With the holidays quickly approaching I wanted the TV done before all the busyness started!

We already know, from having it in our bedroom, that it was exactly what we wanted and that it would change the whole feel of the room and even the whole downstairs.

I was not sad to wave goodbye to our old TV and replace it with what now looks like a piece of art hanging flat against the wall!

Yes – the Frame TV is a chameleon that turns itself into the art of your choice when not in use! It is every home decor lover’s dream, with the frame color of your choice. 
We haven’t yet swapped out the black frame, but we will likely go for the classic white frame. I was loving the light beige oak frame too, but ultimately you know I like a white.

Use the No Gap Wall Mount that it comes with to keep it flush to the wall to really resemble art. You don’t need to buy anything extra for this television to get it hooked up to the wall.  The Samsung TV wall mount is included in the box and is all you need!

We drilled one small hole in the left cabinet where the black box sits and fished the one wire the TV needs through the empty “fireplace” – from the black box to the TV. Seamless. The TV finds everything like Netflix and Wifi on its own- so installation was easy.

If you think I’m not excited to decorate around the TV this holiday season you don’t know me well! I’m already on Pinterest pinning garland ideas! The Frame completely changed how I felt about my living room. Now I love that this television/art is seen from every angle in the house – and we will get to enjoy art in this prominent space throughout the holiday season!

55″ Frame TV: Choosing A Size

I updated this post to discuss sizing:  We did a 55″ Frame TV in our living room over our mantel, after considering a 60″ as well. There was some back and forth – because of course my husband wanted the larger! And honestly, both the 55″ and the 60″ would have fit nicely for the Samsung Frame TV over the fireplace without looking too large or overpowering the room.

We also added a white bezel around the TV (it’s just magnetic strips but looks like a Frame!) – and had our electrician install two sconces on either side to complete the look.

So in the end, we went with the 55″ because the 60″ frame TV would hinder us from putting up sconces on each side. We wanted that extra room along the sides. For reference, our mantel is 79″ wide, and the wall that the TV is mounted on is 87″ wide.

Here are some general guidelines when thinking about what size Frame TV to get for your home:

  • If your TV is on the wall, divide about many inches (roughly) you sit from the TV by 2, and thats the size of your TV. So if you sit 120″ from the TV, a 60″ would look best.
  • If your Frame TV is over a media cabinet, choose a Fame that is slightly smaller than the cabinet below it – and never bigger. For instance if your console is 60″ wide, a 55″ would look best.
  • It’s one thing trying to have a giant black box in your living room. It’s another when it’s a large and beautiful piece of art, That gives you a little more liberty to go larger than a regular TV.
