Homeowners commonly have TVs in their living rooms, bedrooms, and even in their kitchens, but there are other places in your home in which you spend time and may wish to watch the news, a sporting event, or your favorite sitcom. Installing a TV in your bathroom can be an idea that works well, and while you generally won't want a huge TV unless your bathroom is vast, there are several ways to complete the installation. The most practical idea is to mount the TV to a wall mount that you can reposition with ease. This is better than installing a shelf or floor unit for the TV, for example. Here are three places to consider installing a TV in your bathroom.
Across From The Toilet
Sitting on the toilet to watch TV might seem like a strange idea, but consider how much time you spend in this position each day. Lots of people keep magazines near the toilet or spend time on the smartphone while they do their business — and watching TV is another good way to spend the time. Consider mounting a small TV onto a wall across from your toilet. You want to sit on the toilet squarely, rather than have to contort your body to see the screen. If there isn't a wall immediately across from the toilet, consider mounting the TV on a perpendicular wall with a mount that allows the screen to swing out.
Above The Tub
If you have a soaker tub, you might enjoy spending long periods of time relaxing in the warm water a few evenings out of the week. To pass the time, you might enjoy having a TV mounted nearby. A ceiling mount can be the proper installation type in this scenario, as the TV will be positioned at an angle that is easy to view from your reclined position. Keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to watch shows while you're relaxing. For a more pleasing environment, consider loading a video of a burning fireplace or a nature scene onto the TV as you bathe.
Behind A Mirror
There are specialized TV/mirror units that you can mount in your bathroom to replace your conventional mirror. This type of TV is one that you can watch as you stand in front of the mirror, which may be appealing for those who spend significant time in this position. For example, if you're someone who devotes 30 minutes a day to doing your makeup, it can be enjoyable to have the morning news playing "behind" the mirror as you sit or stand in front of it.
