fireplace not in the center of the wall

3 years ago

We are wanting to take our bookshelves and cabinets surrounding a fireplace in our family room and make the room more contemporary. Ultimately we want to lower the mantel, make it a marble and put the tv mounted above it. But my husband pointed out that in all the pictures I love, the fireplace is in the center of the wall. It’s not in our home. Can you still hang a tv over a fireplace not in the center?

I am also attaching a picture of where our tv is now, on a separate wall with built-ins we would take out. Essentially, we need to create more seating opportunities and need more “walls” to place furniture. And since I can put furniture in front of a tv or a fireplace, I thought I’d put those 2 objects together so they only impede one wall.
