A linen cupboard is fitted with a hydraulic lift that allows a flat panel to pop up from the back of it with the push of a button. The television is enclosed in a case, the top of which becomes part of the cupboard’s surface when the television is lowered. Yet there is still room inside the cabinet to store sheets and towels.
If a closet is dark, it will be difficult to locate what you need (as well as to get rid of the things you don't). Consider battery-operated lighting if your closet has no power source. Better yet, have an electrician install recessed ceiling lights that turn on automatically when the door is opened. An incandescent light can also help prevent mildew.
By mounting the television to the back of the armoire, you can free up shelf space for odds and ends. The mounting hardware, left, lets you extend and swivel the television so the screen is visible from bed. A cord-management system built into the mounting bracket keeps the TV cables neatly organized, while two small holes drilled into the back of the armoire feed the electrical cords to a surge protector.
