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

In case you’ve been round right here for awhile now, you realize 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 reasonably vacation spot the place I could make espresso!

Once we started designing our new kitchen, we (after all!) needed to contemplate 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 believe this closed cupboard was an excellent choice for our house, so let me clarify why.

Clearly our kitchen/eating space is in no way 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 may take pleasure in a sneak peek of the progress! 🙂

This kitchen has a novel format from earlier kitchens we’ve had, so we approached the operate and design parts in response to what would work greatest with the house 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 numerous devoted job zones and ground to ceiling storage across the accessible partitions wherever they match greatest, whereas retaining the house as a complete feeling visually unified.

The higher glass cupboards assist it from feeling too closed in and replicate some mild, too. I’ll share extra in regards to the glass cupboards and different built-ins in a future submit.

In case you missed it, I shared our kitchen ground plan earlier than/after on this submit.

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

This location helped transfer a job 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 house 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 might additionally function a breakfast station with cereal or a toaster, for instance. There shall be a lightweight inside so it is going to 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 must 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 shall be put in right here.

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

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

Closed storage may even hold the world feeling clear and streamlined when not in use. Our fundamental ground is sort of small and the three fundamental rooms (together with the lounge) are all seen to one another so we needed to maintain the visible muddle 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 would 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 certain, however there are two sinks and taps only a few steps away.

When one is doing a transform, it may be straightforward to repeatedly persuade your self you might 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 price, hahah!). However I’m simply completely happy to have the added storage—built-ins have been sufficient of a splurge for our funds :).

Under are a couple of of the issues we use for making and serving espresso that can probably 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 considering 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 :).

In case you’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. You’ll find these provides beneath as effectively.
