If you’re looking for a great way to add fun, style and charm to your kitchen, you only need to think about your favorite coffee shop or cafe. If you love spending the afternoon enjoying lunch or a cup of coffee at your favorite cafe, just think how great it would be if you could experience that pleasure in your own home, whenever you’d like. Decorating your kitchen with cafe style can be inexpensive and a lot of fun – plus the result can be terrific. Here are some decorating tips you can use to transform your plain kitchen into your favorite cafe restaurant.
Splurge on Some Great Equipment
If you’ve always wanted your own cappuccino or espresso maker, now is the time to splurge a bit. Not only will these machines make great coffee treats for you to enjoy in your kitchen cafe, but they will also add to the overall restaurant décor theme of the room. Choose one that makes the kind of beverages you enjoy the most, but also pay attention to the stylish features. These machines usually feature a sleek metallic and black finish, which can really add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen.
Add Some Great Art
Once you’ve decided on an overall theme for your cafe kitchen, you can shop for some great art pieces to add just the right touch. If you need a bit of inspiration, just take a trip to your favorite restaurant, cafe, or neighborhood coffee shop. A couple of pieces of restaurant wall art can really spice up the look of your kitchen. Art pieces that have a coffee or food theme can work well. You might also want to add a decorative and artistic clock, which will add to the kitchen’s overall theme while also adding a functional touch. Whether you add a couple of small pieces or one large piece to serve as the kitchen’s focal point, either way you’ll find that art can really help to solidify your cafe kitchen theme.
Update Your Kitchen Furniture
Although you might find that you’ll be able to blend your existing kitchen furniture into your new kitchen theme, sometimes a few updated pieces can really help bring the look together. Imagine how great your kitchen would look with a cute little cafe table and chair set tucked into the corner. Hang a great piece of kitchen wall decor on the wall behind the table. Then, decorate the table itself with a cute tablecloth and a small vase of flowers. Keeping the table set at all times, even when it’s not in use, can add to the authentic restaurant look of the room. You could even make a couple of menus to display on the table to add a touch of fun.
Once your kitchen transformation is complete, you’ll probably be surprised how cozy your kitchen now seems. Your cafe kitchen will be the perfect spot to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or a cappuccino in the afternoon with your friends. You might just find that you’ll never go to your neighborhood coffee shop or cafe again.
