TV's in The Kitchen: Cozy or Excess?

Growing up, our grandma had a small black and white TV in a corner of the kitchen. Since she was always whipping up a dish or a fancy dessert, you could usually find her in the kitchen with the TV on. Since then, a television in the kitchen has always given off a cozy vibe.

While we currently don't have a television set in our kitchen, we wondered how AT readers felt... We've posted about a tube in the bedroom and even in the bathroom but is having one in the kitchen overkill? There are certainly ways to make a TV in the kitchen less conspicuous by purchasing a small flat-screen or plopping it in a corner out of the way. Since most of our friends are now using their laptops to stream shows, you could eliminate the TV in the kitchen altogether. Yet, because the kitchen is typically the hub of the house, it would make sense to have a TV set centrally located (and we definitely think it adds a bit of coziness (a similar feeling to the dryer or washing machine running in the background).

What do our AT readers think? Do you have a TV in the kitchen? Do you consider it cozy, necessary or excess?
