You love unwinding in front of your home theater at the end of the day with your favorite shows and newscasts; that OLED screen sure brings the world to your living room. But you’re less crazy about how your TV looks when it’s off, a black void at the focal point of the room. In the 90s, you could have hidden it away with a doored entertainment center. But nowadays your TV hangs on the wall. And that’s where the MyTVArt television cover can help. This TV cover can hide your TV during the day when it’s off, and you can customize it to display a photo or a well-known painting.
The MyTVArt isn’t your typical TV cover. This one you actually build on to your TV using brackets designed for the job; they have no screws or bolts and thus will keep your TV safe. The brackets allow you to lower or raise the cover via the remote control included with the product. So you’ll never have to struggle with a cover that’s separate from your TV. With a black outer housing that you can personalize and even swap out when you want to, this TV cover blends nicely into your decor.
This new TV cover fits most TVs
Think the MyTVArt can’t possibly fit your TV? Think again because this artistic TV cover can fit nearly any flat-screen TV up to 82 inches diagonal thanks to its unique bracket system and set-top art holder. The company is currently working on making this gadget backward-compatible to fit old-style TVs, safes, windows, and shelves.

The prints are museum-quality
The company’s Kickstarter page writes that the prints you can customize the MyTVArt with are museum-quality. That’s due to their use of large format printers and AI photo-enhancing software. They are also printed on a real canvas, which adds to their authentic quality. Furthermore, this TV cover was designed to hide your whole TV, not just the frame, concealing your entire TV from view. It’s just like covering your TV with a rolling print. For now, there is an array of artwork you can choose from, from Baroque to realism to historical portraits and modernism. There are so many beautiful paintings; it’s worth checking out the company’s website to see them all.

Your own portrait makes an excellent cover, too
And of course, you can customize this cool TV cover even further by uploading your own images to be used as a print. Do you have a photo of the whole family you love seeing every day? Then let it take center stage in your living room as the cover to your TV. If you own a business, you can even have your company logo printed on your MyTVArt and install it on the TV in your company’s conference room.
This unique TV cover supports artists
What would an artistic TV cover be if it didn’t support artists? The MyTVArt TV cover runs an outreach program that discovers artists and photographers that the company collaborates with. Each new artist is featured on the company website with a page about their personal story.
The creative TV cover that un-techs your home
It’s been a trend for quite some time to ‘un-tech,’ with some people embarking on techless Saturdays and limiting their use of screens throughout the week. The MyTVArt makes it easy to un-tech your home by hiding your TV—probably the largest screen in your house—by hiding it behind a beautiful painting or personal photo. It also reduces the temptation to turn it on throughout the day for both adults and children.
This TV gadget is easy to install
Another great feature of this TV cover is its easy installation. In fact, you don’t need any tools to set up this TV cover. Just open the box, remove the packaging, place the support brackets into the device, stick the fasteners to the TV, and lock your MyTVArt into place above your TV. It’s so easy; even one person can set it up.
Artwork can improve your health
According to a Norwegian study cited on the company’s Kickstarter page, creating and viewing works of art directly correlates to good health, happiness, and lower rates of depression and anxiety in both men and women. The creators of MyTVArt hope to bring gallery-quality art to the home at an affordable price and improve their overall sense of well-being.
The MyTVArt television covers are a great way to add another surface for displaying art in your home. Because if we’re honest, the black void your TV creates when it’s off isn’t that pleasant to look at. But, if you cover it with The Dance Lesson by Degas or Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, you get to show off a large, gallery-quality print right in your living room. For people who work or study from home, this might be the ideal way to make your home more conducive to your creative ideas.
The MyTVArt television covers start at $199, and you can preorder yours on Kickstarter. What are your favorite works of art for the living room? Let us know in the comments.
