By: Craig Thornburrow

Having a kitchen TV is growing in popularity. While having a TV in the kitchen has been around for decades, the idea is really gaining popularity. Many believe this is because the kitchen is now becoming the hub of the house. People are congregating and hanging out in the kitchen and it just seems beneficial to incorporate a television in the room.

Having a television in the kitchen can serve several purposes. One such purpose that many find helpful is in the morning as you are getting ready for the day you can listen and watch your local news. This gives you the opportunity to hear weather reports and hear whether there are any traffic delays which allows you to make alternate travel plans if necessary. Another way it can come in handy is that you can go to the kitchen even during your favorite shows and not miss anything. It is definitely an asset to have a TV in the kitchen and here are the three most popular ways that people are incorporating them.

The first way that they are being brought into the kitchen is simply by setting one on the counter top. This is the way that many people have done it because there were not many alternative ways available. This is a simple way to do it but it can be a bit cumbersome as you will now lose valuable countertop space. You could always move it if necessary but there is better ways to work the TV into your kitchen's atmosphere.

Another way to get a TV into the kitchen is by purchasing a refrigerator that has one built in to it. This is becoming a new trend in home appliances, including electronics into them. It is relatively new technology so you will probably pay a bit more to have it. If you really want one of these kitchen TVs you may want to consider waiting another year or two when the prices will come down. If it is on your "must have" list you can find them at any home improvement store or appliance store.

The most effective way to incorporate a kitchen TV is to have it built into your actual kitchen design. This is simple to do if you are remodeling or building a new kitchen. Just talk to the cabinet people you have hired and let them know where you want the TV. They will need the specifications for the television so that they can custom make the cabinet that will hold the TV. You can ask that the cabinet have retractable doors, this allows you to hide the TV behind the doors when you are not watching it, and when you are watching it the doors retract so they are not in the way.

As the kitchen evolves more and more becoming the meeting place for the family many are starting to add televisions into their kitchen. Here are three ways that can help you accomplish that. As this trend becomes more popular you will see manufactures make more kitchen TV models to accommodate their popularity.
