I’m thinking through our TV plan and I’m needing some advice. The beach house has a large upstairs living room attached to the kitchen and dining area, and a slightly smaller family room on the lower level where the majority of the bedrooms are. We are planning to put a medium sized flat screen TV in every bedroom as well as a large TV in the downstairs family room.
My preference would be to leave the upstairs main living area TV-free. I am envisioning this as a space to play and visit and just enjoy the people that I’m on vacation with. But my own family doesn’t watch tons of TV, and so I’m wondering if this choice would be a mistake for most families.
I personally would like at least one TV-free zone in the home. But if most families would wish for a TV in that room, it might be a better plan to go ahead and get a TV for the space, most likely shutting it into a cupboard to keep it out of sight when it is not used.
What do you think?
