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

In case you’ve been round right here for awhile now, you already know I LOVE having a kitchen espresso station. I actually take pleasure in making my morning espresso a savored expertise, so in each kitchen we’ve had I’ve at all times created a fairly vacation spot the place I could make espresso!

After we started designing our new kitchen, we (after all!) wished to contemplate the place the espresso station can 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 superb determination for our house, 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 assumed you would possibly take pleasure in a sneak peek of the progress! 🙂

This kitchen has a singular format from earlier kitchens we’ve had, so we approached the operate and design components in keeping with what would work finest with the house we’ve got 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 activity zones and ground to ceiling storage across the obtainable partitions wherever they match finest, whereas maintaining the house as an entire 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.

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 might be throughout the room from our new eating banquette!).

This location helped transfer a activity and storage station away from the primary cooking space of the kitchen, which is able to assist in terms 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 wish to retailer right here. This cupboard may additionally function a breakfast station with cereal or a toaster, for instance. There might be a light-weight inside so will probably be simpler to make use of at evening, 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 should 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 house for the cabinets which might be put in right here.

Having the pocket doorways will allow us to to go away the cupboard open for household or visitors to serve themselves espresso!

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

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

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 is going to 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 only a few steps away.

When one is doing a rework, it may be simple to repeatedly persuade your self you’ve yet one more “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 blissful to have the added storage—built-ins have been sufficient of a splurge for our funds :).

Under are just a few of the issues we use for making and serving espresso that may 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 :).
