Whether you want to wash with soap operas or primp with prime time, these guidelines for installing a TV in the bathroom can help
I’ll get this out of the way first: I’ve always had a hard time understanding the appeal of TVs in bathrooms. Unlike the kitchen, which is usually the hub of household life, or a den where family and guests gather, a bathroom seems to me as though it should be a private retreat and a haven from the outside world (temporarily, at least).
But let’s say you do want a television in your bath — perhaps you enjoy its background noise while you prepare for bed, or you like to get a jump on the day’s headlines as you primp in the mornings. It’s not quite as simple as mounting a flat screen on the living room wall; you’ll need to factor in a few special considerations. Here’s what to keep in mind.
