What To Think About With...Kitchen Ceiling Radios

When it comes to audio for your kitchen, there is a wide range of options at BuyCleverStuff, and we like to ensure that we find the right system for your kitchen.

In ceiling speakers are a very popular option, linked either between an in-wall panel control or a separate remote control. Both unit designs are simple and subtle, and straightforward to use once installed.

Determining exactly what audio you wish to fill your kitchen with can be a tricky decision, but we hope in our blog to break down everything to guide you to the best solution for you.

  • Purpose

If you are thinking of installing a Kitchen Ceiling Radio, there may be the need to think about whether you want your system to provide audio on a personal level or whether it is going to be used for entertaining a larger number of guests. Some of our systems can only work with their bundled speakers, so consider what it is you are wanting to do with your Kitchen Ceiling Radio.

  • Size of room / speakers

Our previous point leads us nicely on to this aspect - how to define your required speaker size.

At BuyCleverStuff, Ceiling Kitchen Radio systems are bundled with varying speaker sizes, but as a rough guide 2-2.5 inch speakers are adequate for a 4m2 room and 5 inch speakers for around a 10m2 room.

With larger kitchen and dining rooms beyond these sizes, the need for an extra pair of ceiling speakers may be required in order to better fill a room with sound, as with small, less powerful speakers in a large room, audio will tend to be lost.

This is only meant to be a rough estimation in terms of speaker sizes and room size, and at BuyCleverStuff we are hoping to bring in the future a standardised guide relating to the decibel output for all of our speakers that we currently stock on our website.

  • Functions

As standard FM radio is featured on all our Kitchen Ceiling Radios, but many of our systems also include DAB radio. If you have a good DAB reception, you will receive crisp clear sound, and also receive stations not found on FM frequencies.

Personal audio devices, more so mobile phones and tablets, play a huge role in our day-to-day lives. Built-in Bluetooth receivers with many of our Kitchen Ceiling Radios mean that beyond FM and DAB radio you can connect devices in order to also play your own personal music, or even music streaming services such as Spotify, Napster, Deezer and many more, through our systems.

  • Appearance

There are two elements to think about with your Kitchen Ceiling Radio before you purchase, the style of the controlling unit, and also the look of the in ceiling speakers.

We have a number of in-wall panels that fit into single or double gang back boxes (dependent on the product chosen) and can sit neatly and discreetly away should you want that in your room.

Remote control systems are not only stylish and unobtrusive, but they are extremely useful, especially when connecting any Bluetooth devices. It means your Bluetooth device such as a smartphone or tablet will be safe and out of the way and allows you to work in your kitchen space with little worry.

The second aspect to think about your in ceiling speakers. Designed in white to be as unobtrusive as possible, there are some slight differences between styles of speakers, however these are very minimal, so if you are concerned why not take a look at our main website with the entire range on show.

Once purpose, size when installing, function and appearance have been thought out, you may have more of an idea of which Kitchen Ceiling Radio system you require, and in which case you may want to see our full offering over at our main BuyCleverStuff website.

However, if you are looking possibly to extend from just a kitchen and dining area to a whole ground floor audio system or even throughout the whole home with multi-room audio, then look out for our further articles coming up which will give you more advice on what you may require and what suitable systems are available.
