Tips to have your coffee corner in the living room
Assess your needs
Before you start planning the decoration and assembly of your coffee corner in the living room, assess what you need and want.
The coffee corner is all the rage, mainly because of the coffee machine boom, but that doesn’t mean you have to follow this trend to the letter. So the best thing to do is ask yourself how, where and in what way do you like to enjoy your cup of coffee? Every day in the morning or only when you have a visitor? In the first case, it is better to equip the corner with items that can be consumed daily, in addition to the coffee itself.
If the second option suits you better, then a small space just for the coffee maker and cups is enough.
Choose a place
What is the best place in the room to set up the coffee corner? There is no rule for this.
What you need to evaluate is the functionality of the environment. The coffee corner cannot get in the way or block the way.
Furniture for the coffee corner
The coffee corner is very versatile and maybe that’s why it has been so successful. It can be mounted on a sideboard, a buffet, a cart (super trend), or even in a corner of the rack, dining table, or counter that divides the environment.
You don’t need to have your furniture for the coffee corner in the living room, especially if the space is small.
Verticalize if necessary
Speaking of small space, did you know that the coffee corner can be made suspended? This reduces the need for free floor space, favoring small rooms.
To do this, simply install niches or shelves on the wall. In addition to being charming, the coffee corner is practical and functional.
Decide what you will use in the coffee corner
The items that will make up the coffee corner vary greatly according to your daily use needs. But, in general, two elements are indispensable: coffee maker and cups.
However, you can of course equip this space to make it even more functional. To do this, have on hand:
- Pot to store the coffee powder;
- sugar bowl;
- coffee spoons;
- Capsule holder (if applicable);
- Electric kettle (for those who opted for the traditional method of making coffee);
- Coffee machine, coffee maker, or thermos bottle;
Items to decorate
