Is Placing TV In Front of Windows a Bad Idea?
Not at all. Putting a TV in front of windows is not a weird and unadvisable idea.
Sometimes, the only possible option for setting up the TV is in front of the windows, and I have seen many people do this and create a well-designed interior.
Therefore, the critical point is that you need some inspiration about how to decorate and arrange the TV area.
Before going deep into the interior ideas, you will need to learn how to handle the common issues when positioning TV in front of windows.
3 Tips to Reduce the Heat and Screen Glare Issues
While putting the TV in front of windows, three potential obstacles stop you:
- less natural light
- screen glare
You can handle these issues easily by positioning the TV in a suitable place or shading it from sunlight during the daytime.
Next, I will show you three common helpful tips for solving these problems.
#1. Place it in front of the shady windows.
If your room has sufficient natural light due to many windows, then you can put the TV in front of the window with less light. This helps reduce the screen glare and heat when you watch TV.
Besides, find out which window allows more light (mostly the south-facing window) and ensure your TV is not opposite that one.

#2. Use Curtains Or Blinds During Daytime
If you are afraid that harsh sunlight will overheat your TV, you can use blinds and curtains to shade it during the daytime.
By the way, you will have a comfortable viewing experience in a darker room, just like in the cinema.
And you can choose whether blinds or curtains based on your preference. However, blinds allow a little light into the room if you like watching TV under faint light.
On the other hand, you’ll want thicker and pattern curtains for more shade.
For personal taste, I’ll use curtains because they are more decorative. Matching the color and pattern of curtains with room adds a strong style to the interior.
#3. Move TV To the Corner
What if there is no other place for your TV and you have no choice but to have the only window in the room?
Positioning your TV in the corner is the optimal option to ensure enough natural light. And you can angle the TV to avoid screen glare as well.
