The goal is to create a custom atmosphere in which you can relax and recharge a little from your daily routine. Once you’ve chosen the area you want to exploit, there are several decorating ideas available: install shelves or iron bars for cups and utensils, opt for mismatched dishes, hang a slate board to write down little words or recipes, transform an old wooden piece of furniture into a bar, etc…
Open wooden shelves
Depending on your personal desires and, of course, the space you are planning to create, you can take advantage of a wide range of storage solutions. To bring unparalleled charm to your kitchen and coffee area at the same time, display your dishes on open wooden shelves. No matter what decor you have in your kitchen, open storage will fit in perfectly. They offer better visibility and optimize the work surface considerably.
Create a decorative and practical slate wall
Liven up your coffee corner and kitchen with slate paint, which will turn any space in your home into a beautiful writing surface. Being an excellent memory medium, it will allow you to write down your recipes and any other important information according to your particular needs. The chalkboard wall will bring to your interior decoration a touch of original fantasy and will make your “coffee station” even more awesome.
What if you reinvented a piece of furniture to serve coffee? Some coffee lovers don’t hesitate to turn a simple console into a small place dedicated to coffee/tea consumption. For maximum comfort, they have added a few stools. A way to take a break at any time of the day.
What kind of bar furniture to choose for a small DIY coffee corner?
The sideboard is another good idea to consider. Being a practical piece of furniture, it guarantees a lot of storage space, while giving you a good surface to exploit. As already mentioned, this surface can very easily be transformed into a nice and practical work surface. Put your multi-drink machine, the espresso set and decorate it as you wish.
Do you have a lonely chest of drawers? Don’t throw it away! Give it a second life with a few strokes of the brush. Just like the wooden buffet, your dresser will make a great coffee bar! And for those really limited spaces where optimization is the order of the day, a simple wooden board hung horizontally on the wall will do the trick. Combined with shelves and stools, it will make a practical and aesthetic coffee space!
For a mobile drinking area, opt for a kitchen sideboard. Placed in the hallway, the dining room or the living room, your tasting area will be anything but ordinary!
