How to Hide a Projector Screen on a Wall

Updated February 21, 2017

There are various ways that a projector screen can be hidden on a wall. Projector screens are commonly used for presentations or sit alongside a home theatre system. Projector screens help enhance and provide high-definition picture quality.

Having a projector screen in the home has its advantages and disadvantages. When it is not in use, it can draw attention away from the interior design of a room. There are some easy and creative tips to hide your projector screen.

Blend in your projector screen with your surroundings. Paint the wall the same colour as your projector screen to hide it discreetly.

Hide your projector screen on a wall by using a multipurpose frame. Use a large frame that can accommodate both the projector screen and a photo/painting. When the projector screen is not being used, it can be flipped over to reveal the photo on the wall.

Install curtains on the wall to hide your projector screen. Measure the width and length of the area where the projector screen is located. Mark the measured area with a pencil. Use a drill to drill two holes for the curtain rod holders. Measure and then insert the curtain rod holders screwing them in with a screwdriver. Hang your curtains on the curtain rod. Pull the curtain open while the projector is being used.
