What’s your favorite place to hang out at home? Most people say the kitchen. You might think it would be the living room or family room, but the majority of people surveyed say that they hang out in the kitchen. It is where we discuss all of the events of the day with the ones that we love most, and it is usually where all of the guests end up when entertaining.
What’s your favorite place to hang out when you go outside of the home? For a majority of Americans, hanging out at the local coffee shop is where they want to be. Whether you are busy sipping on iced coffee creations or mellowing out on a cup of tea, hanging out at the local coffee shop is where many Americans go to visit with friends, meet up with new friends, and keep track of what’s going on in each others’ lives.
Two Favorites in One!
What if you could combine your two favorite places to hang out in one beautiful design for South Coast kitchen cabinets? When you make plans to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts to replace your old kitchen setup, think about the look, feel, and vibe that you want to create with your new designer kitchen cabinets and cupboards. If coffee shops are your thing, stick with dark, rich colors that inspire that feeling of being at your favorite store. Dark brown or cherry stained solid maple will be your best bet to help make the whole room feel like a rich cup of caffeinated heaven on earth.
Stop by the Cabinet Factory Outlet and take a look at the variety of kitchen cabinets, cupboards, and accessories that are available for you to use to create the coffee shop inspired kitchen of your dreams. In addition to cabinetry and beautiful countertops, which are also available at the outlet, make sure to think about seating for you, your family, and guests, as well as other built-in options that will really take this coffee shop theme over the top to create a beautiful place to relax and unwind.
Other Elements to Consider
Think back to your personal coffee shop experience. What was it that you liked most? The smell of the rich coffee being made when you walked in the door? The taste of the amazing treats for sale under glass-covered pastry displays? Was it the whimsical decor or the comfortable seating that got your attention? Whatever it was, think about how you want to achieve it and add it to your design.
Some of the more popular extras to enhance your new designer kitchen cabinets include:
- CHALKBOARDS – What coffee shop doesn’t have chalkboards with the day’s specials or other inspirational notes written on them? Designers have added them to home kitchens as they would hang a piece of artwork, set them on countertops via stands or even added a chalkboard to entire walls by using chalkboard paint, which can be used on any surface.
- WOODEN BAR – Even if all of your countertops that you chose when you decided to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts are all granite or French tile, you can add that coffee shop feel by adding a wooden bar top to your kitchen decor. Wooden bars give just about any kitchen design a more homey, coffee shop vibe. Besides, they are ultra trendy, durable, easy-to-clean, and much more affordable than you might think.
- RUSTIC MATERIALS – While everything else in your coffee shop kitchen will be contemporary and high-end, including the coffee pot and dishes, try to add rustic building materials, such as bricks, reclaimed wood, and other wood items. Think tables, chairs and end tables made from natural wood, bricks used on walls and as part of the decor, integrated with industrial style elements, such as framing, trim, and much more.
- NOOKS – The typical trend for the use of nooks in a kitchen is to create a neat little breakfast spot or quick bite seating for time spent with family and friends. However, nooks are now being used in unique ways. Set-up a couple of cozy armchairs and an end table in between for an instant coffee shop setting. Paint the background in a dark, rich color that is different from the colors used to paint the rest of the kitchen.
