With the increasing desire for outdoor living and entertainment spaces, outdoor-rated accessories are also gaining popularity. Including features in your outdoor living space, such as outdoor-rated TVs and outdoor kitchens, are great options to enhance the outdoor entertaining capabilities of your space. In this article, we discuss how the design options available through Brown Jordan® Outdoor Kitchens™ will give you the freedom to design a beautiful and durable outdoor kitchen along with an outdoor-rated TV.
How to Choose an Outdoor TV
You should choose an outdoor television based on your needs and budget for your outdoor space. Many people opt for a less expensive TV, as it will be cheaper to replace than a costly one. While there are outdoor TVs to fit various budgets, the cost of outdoor TVs is correlated with other factors, such as capability of handling the weather, sunlight exposure, and temperature fluctuations. These factors will also affect where you can place your outdoor TV. For example, some outdoor TVs have a greater range of brightness properties, making them functional even in areas with full sun exposure. More expensive outdoor TVs will have greater flexibility for placement outdoors due to their enhanced resistance to the environment.
Benefits of an Outdoor Kitchen with a TV
The greatest outdoor living experiences will incorporate every element of entertaining and enjoyment of the space, from socializing with guests around the TV to cooking, eating, and drinking. Designing an outdoor kitchen and including an outdoor TV in your space will provide a complete entertainment package for you and your guests. Installing a TV near your outdoor kitchen or outdoor seating area will offer a relaxing space to cook a meal and catch a game or a movie, giving you the freedom to enjoy your outdoor space in much the same way that you would indoors.
Best Layouts for an Outdoor Kitchen with a TV
The best outdoor kitchen layouts with an outdoor television will be functional for using both the kitchen and viewing the TV. Determining the function of your outdoor TV in your space will guide the placement of your TV relative to your outdoor kitchen and/or seating area. For instance, do you want your TV to be in a usable location for the chef, or do you want to design a relaxing entertainment area for your guests away from your outdoor kitchen? Depending on the size of your outdoor space, you may be able to place your TV in an outdoor dining area for optimal viewing by both the chef and the guests as well.
If your living space includes a separate outdoor living room with seating, you may want to include the TV in your seating area rather than in your outdoor kitchen for a relaxing social atmosphere. If your TV will be included in your backyard kitchen, you will need to be especially mindful of the location, such as placing the TV away from outdoor cooking areas.
You will want to consider factors that will affect viewing of the TV too, such as sunrise, sunset, and if your outdoor space is shaded from the environment. These considerations will be very helpful in determining the best layout for your outdoor kitchen and the best suited outdoor TV model for your space. As always, follow the advice of the manufacturer of your outdoor TV model for best practices on placement to ensure longevity.
