Make It Easy to See the TV
See-through glass shower walls are great for catching up on the morning news while you get ready for your day. Install your wall-mount TV where you can see it from the shower, tub, or vanity.

A built-in cabinet for the TV puts it in the wall and out of the way for a clean, finished look. The clean look is suited to the modern bath to keep counters from looking cluttered.

A TV doesn't need to be the focal point of the bath. Mount it high in the corner so you can see it, but it doesn't distract from the beauty of the bath.

Shelf the TV
Putting the TV on a shelf leaves you open to change. Move it where you want without removing a mounting unit from the wall.

Corner TV Cabinet
Use an otherwise overlooked space for holding the TV. Shelving on both sides of the corner cabinet makes great storage for towels and bath products -- and a TV.

Flat-Panel TV Above Tub

Mirror with an Integrated TV

TV on a Bath Shelf
Wall shelves that hold towels and other bath products are great places to put a small TV. Here, it is high at the foot of the tub and easy to see from anywhere in the bath.
