Some ideas for built-in kitchen TVs include a TV slot located over the microwave, a flat TV mounted on the backsplash above the sink and a TV mounted above a refrigerator. The TV can also be built into a cabinet with storage drawers below and open shelving above.
TVs can be built into the dead or high spaces located above microwaves and refrigerators. Instead of traditionally using the area for extra cupboards that are inconvenient to get to, a TV can be mounted on a downward tilt. A homeowner can also get a TV built into a double-oven corner unit, utilizing the hard-to-reach vertical space above the top oven. The same principle works for a kitchen corner work desk containing the telephone and computer. In the shelving above the desk, the homeowner can have a TV built in with more shelves above.
Another idea is installing a TV in a coffee and tea bar. This separate unit contains a coffeemaker, small sink and faucet, shelving and mini-microwave, above which is the TV. Individuals can enjoy some morning coffee while getting caught up on the news. A TV built into smooth black cupboards and stainless steel appliances can give a kitchen a modern, contemporary feel.
