TV in kitchen
We finally picked out a TV for the kitchen. However, the one DH likes is 19" which would mean it can't flip up and fit under the top cabinets because it will hit the plug mold. I think we have 10" of space and need 11.5". The width was accounted for with the ULC but the electrician thought the tv we would end up with would be smaller than the one DH ultimately liked. Do you think it is worth it to move the plug mold? How much do you think that would cost? DH didn't like some of the smaller TVs.
Also, where should the cable box go? DH said some people put it in the cabinet. Is it better to drill a hole in the back wall or in the floor of the cabinet to allow the cable wire to pass through? If the cabinet door is closed, I don't see how we can use the cable remote to change channels and adjust the volume. Is there a trick to using the TV remote with cable? Or do we need to build a shelf that hangs below the cabinets to hold the cable box? I had wanted a very clean line all around vs. it being interrupted with a cable box.
I saw the houzz article on TVs in the kitchen but it didn't address my questions.
