Can you put a TV above a log burner? It is a common question many people ask when planning the layout of their new living room. 

Log burning stoves make a fantastic, warming focal point in any space and it is not uncommon for them to take prime position in the living room — which is often where it is best for the TV to be located too. Because of this, fitting a TV above a wood burner can seem like a good idea — combining two important focal points in one central location.
