A Peek at Our New Coffee Station Cabinet with Pocket Doors!

For those who’ve been round right here for awhile now, you understand I LOVE having a kitchen espresso station. I actually get pleasure from making my morning espresso a savored expertise, so in each kitchen we’ve had I’ve at all times created a reasonably vacation spot the place I could make espresso!

After we started designing our new kitchen, we (in fact!) wished to think about the place the espresso station could be.

And for the primary time ever, we put in a closed pantry model cupboard particularly to carry our espresso station!

Does that come as a shock to you since I’ve at all times had ours out within the open? I feel this closed cupboard was a great resolution for our area, so let me clarify why.

Clearly our kitchen/eating space is by no means completed, and we’re ready on the casing trim on the openings between rooms, the crown and base molding for the cupboards, {hardware} and extra. However I believed you would possibly get pleasure from a sneak peek of the progress! 🙂

This kitchen has a novel format from earlier kitchens we’ve had, so we approached the perform and design components based on what would work finest with the area we now have right here.

We determined to deal with the kitchen and eating rooms as a mixed space when it got here to cabinetry and performance. This allowed us to create varied devoted process zones and flooring to ceiling storage across the out there partitions wherever they match finest, whereas retaining the area as a complete feeling visually unified.

The higher glass cupboards assist it from feeling too closed in and mirror some mild, too. I’ll share extra concerning the glass cupboards and different built-ins in a future put up.

For those who missed it, I shared our kitchen flooring plan earlier than/after on this put up.

Our new espresso station cupboard is definitely situated within the eating room, in an area to the left of the prevailing built-in bookcase and bench in our lounge (the espresso station will likely be throughout the room from our new eating banquette!).

This location helped transfer a process and storage station away from the principle cooking space of the kitchen, which can assist on the subject of entertaining or having household over in a smaller residence like ours.

We designed a part of the cupboard to carry our espresso maker and provides. There are additionally pull-out pantry drawers for no matter we need to retailer right here. This cupboard might additionally function a breakfast station with cereal or a toaster, for instance. There will likely be a light-weight inside so it will likely be simpler to make use of at night time, too. It’s good to have versatile storage that may serve no matter goal is required as time goes on, as effectively! It doesn’t need to be a espresso station.

The double doorways are pocket doorways. Their design permits the doorways to slip again into the edges of the cupboard with out hindering inside area for the cabinets which will likely be put in right here.

Having the pocket doorways will allow us to to depart the cupboard open for household or company to serve themselves espresso!

Open pocket doorways may even will assist site visitors stream, making it much less awkward to stroll previous as it’s a pathway/linked area between the lounge and kitchen.

Closed storage may even preserve the realm feeling clear and streamlined when not in use. Our major flooring is sort of small and the three major rooms (together with the lounge) are all seen to one another so we wished to maintain the visible litter down as a lot as potential.

We’ll set our Berkey water filter in a pull out pantry drawer on the left for simple filtered water entry. It isn’t a flowery faucet or built-in system, however it can work for us. I actually wrestled over whether or not or not I ought to embrace a faucet or plumbing into this cupboard. It might have been handy, for positive, however there are two sinks and taps just some steps away.

When one is doing a transform, it may be simple to repeatedly persuade your self you may have another “want” or one thing else must be added now “whereas we’re doing this” (to justify the “want” so as to add extra zeroes to the ever rising value, hahah!). However I’m simply joyful to have the added storage—built-ins have been sufficient of a splurge for our finances :).

Beneath are a couple of of the issues we use for making and serving espresso that can possible be within the new espresso station, too!

I’ve had a mug rack like this in my kitchens earlier than, however this time I’m pondering to maintain most of our mugs on the shelf or drawers within the espresso station. Though if I can squeeze in a mug rack, I’ll :).

For those who’re questioning, though we’ll have this fancy espresso machine within the espresso station, I nonetheless intend to make my espresso in this stovetop espresso maker like I’ve for years. Yow will discover these provides beneath as effectively.
