Best Small TV for a Kitchen UK

By  Enda McLarnon

In this article we check out the best TV for a kitchen UK. Many people like the convenience of being able to watch TV, when they are working or cooking in their kitchen.

These days it is also very easy to have the TV also suitable for playing videos, listening to music and even watching things like YouTube and Netflix. This is often referred to as streaming.

Under Cabinet Cupboard Flip Down Kitchen LCD/ LED TV Bracket

The most popular styles used these days, are those that attach under a cupboard, and are usually kept in place by some type of hanging brackets.

We have included an image of that just to the right. The days when the small TV used to sit in the corner of the kitchen are pretty much gone.

Many of the other smaller TVs available, also use a simple stand to keep them in place. Just remember, if you go for that option, it will take up a bit of valuable counter or worktop space.

So fundamentally you have a couple of choices, a small TV on a stand, that can sit under a cupboard and on top of a counter, or, one that hangs down from a bracket. With the bracket option it can be left there, or indeed pushed under a cupboard when not in use.

These are also popular in caravans, mobile homes and in many holiday homes.

What Else Does a Kitchen TV Need?

The sky is the limit now for what programs you want to watch. You can opt for the basic channels by using an indoor, or external aerial. Many of the small TVs also come with Freeview built in to them.

The more expensive options are the Smart TVs which can be hooked up to features like Netflix, YouTube etc. Again most of these TVs will work with the various "sticks" available such as the Amazon Fire.

Many TVs also come with built-in radio, and that is handy for listening to the news or a bit of music as you work.

Most people will not want or need the full range of TV services in their kitchen. Mainly it is to have something on when you are cooking, or perhaps having something to eat in the morning or late evening.

Things To Watch Out For In Your Kitchen

STEAM - the one thing to watch out for is the amount of steam in the kitchen!

Cooking will create steam, and of course there may be some oil/grease created. Over a period of time that can build up inside a TV. You need to be just a little bit careful, when it comes to locating your TV. 

Ideally it should be away from the main cooking area, and also away from the sink area. You do not want to get moisture anywhere near a TV for safety reasons. Just take a little time where you should locate your television.

Power Supply for Your TV

One other thing you will want to consider is where can you get power to your TV. Most TVs work off the main's supply, so you will need to be able to plug it in somewhere close to its location. The other option is to buy a TV that is powered by a battery. Bear in mind though, that the battery will need regular charging.

TV Aerial

Depending on what you want to watch, it may also need an aerial. Many of the TVs come with a built-in internal aerial. That may just not be strong enough to pick up a good reception. You may need to connect it up to an external aerial, or through your cable network.


For a free service such as Freeview it needs to be connected to an aerial. If you bought your TV after 2010, it will already have Freeview built into it. Ideally you need an aerial pointing in the right direction towards a transmitter. Some indoor (loft or portable) aerials may pick up Freeview, but for best results we recommend a roof aerial.
