With so much to do and to think about when doing a top to bottom renovation along with new construction, there is always something, a small detail that is overlooked. Concealing wall-mounted flat screen TV cords was one thing we didn’t think about.
Fortunately, someone stopped by the house recently and asked us about the various locations for the flat screen TVs. He told us that we absolutely had to buy “In-wall TV Connection Kits” at Lowes. I’m so glad he saw the house before the drywall installation. I went to Lowes the next day, bought three kits (about $30 each), and John ran the 14-2 wire and RG6 coax cable to the approximate height where the flat screen TVs will be plugged into the wall. He stapled both wires to the stud in the selected bay with 2ft of extra wire coiled up.
The kit will be installed after drywall and painting is finished.
John marked the subfloor beneath the bay where the wires are located so when it comes time to cut the drywall to access the wires, they’ll easily be found.
We’ll have three wall-mounted flat screen TVs in the house. Above is the location at one end of the living room, near the kitchen.
In the master bedroom, the flat screen will be mounted just above the French doors.
And on the lower ground level, a third flat screen will be in my art studio/craft room, next to the mudroom.
