Posted Sun Jul 21, 2013, 3:20pm Subject: home coffee bar design / layout
]]]After an unsuccessful search, I have given up on seeing a gallery of people's home coffee bars. Somebody point me to a gallery if I'm wrong. I'll save a gallery thread for another day because right now, I have to design my own.
We are remodeling a kitchen, and I have a 5 foot section which I plan to use for coffee/tea center. The cabinet maker will be meeting me in two days, so I am needing to finalize any cabinet plans by then. Here are photos of the "before" showing the 5' section with the glass cabinets above.
Is there a reason that links don't work here, or how do I insert photos on this forum?
-machines to be left out on the countertop:
Breville BES900XL 13.5" wide
Rancilio Rocky 5" wide
knock box 7"
Bonavita Electric Gooseneck kettle ~12" wide
Breville YouBrew 8.5" Total here is 46" on a 60" counter. Seems quite full to me, and that's without
-Below, the current plan is to put a glass front beverage cooler which seem to run about 22" wide and 34" tall (36" tall cabinet). I was thinking of putting this on the left side so that it wouldn't block an inset knock box hanging down on the right side. Do you think the right side would be better and keep it out of view by being behind the island? I suppose I could use a freestanding knockbox and save cutting a hole into Quartz counters
-Above, would you use open shelving or glass front cabinets for cups, beans, tea, syrups, etc?
