Thoughtful and competent design of a coffee shop in Kyiv
A modern coffee house is associated not only with a place where you can taste delicious coffee or enjoy a sweet dessert, it is also a cozy atmosphere, gatherings in a friendly company or a business lunch in a relaxed atmosphere. And if it is not so difficult to provide high-quality drinks and an extensive menu, then it is better to develop a suitable coffee house design with the participation of a professional. In the Ionosphere studio we will create a unique project that will follow global trends and have the unique personality of the owner.
Thoughtful interior of a coffee shop
Before starting the design of the establishment, we recommend that you think over the future concept. This includes the general style of the hall, the appearance of the showcase and signage, and even the optimal color scheme, which will be seen in functional and decorative elements. And the concept, in turn, is based on the target audience and the expected features of the work. For example, we recommend designing a take-away coffee shop in light colors, focusing more on a catchy menu and a noticeable sign, so that the visitor will immediately notice your establishment on the street and easily decide on the desired drink. A stationary cafe focuses more on long gatherings, so it is important to create a cozy and memorable atmosphere with comfortable furniture so that customers return with pleasure. At the same time, it is worth creating an image of a potential buyer, whom you will focus on when choosing a setting. Young people choose bright modern establishments with fashionable decor and unusual drinks, while older customers prefer calm classics and general comfort. Business people are limited in time, so it is important for them that the institution can solve important issues in solitude and with a cup of a delicious drink, and visitors with children will remember the hall with a thoughtful and safe playroom. Our experts recommend taking into account these aspects at the stage of creating a business plan in order to immediately choose a room in which all ideas can be implemented without a long and large-scale redevelopment.
Classic design features of coffee houses
Ionosfera studios have been working in this area for several years, so we know how to make the design of a coffee house bright and unique. But there are a few general recommendations that we advise you to pay attention to when choosing a design: 1. Glazing with an attractive view. We all saw in popular films a frame where the main character sits at a table with a cup of aromatic drink and peacefully watches the bustle of the city outside the window. And in order for this romantic picture to become a reality, you need to equip the cafe with a panoramic showcase overlooking the city landscape, which can be supplemented with spectacular decor: tubs of flowers, large thematic figures and hanging planters. 2. Secluded booths. If the establishment provides a full menu, and not just drinks, we recommend that tables be placed at a distance so that visitors can eat in peace. Partitions or sliding screens can also be included in the design of the coffee shop to enhance the effect of privacy. 3. Thoughtful lighting. For a cozy cafe, soft diffused light with the ability to adjust depending on the time of day is suitable. For a hall with separate booths, it is worth considering the possibility of individual lighting settings for each dining group. 4. Wear-resistant finishing materials. Given the large flow of customers that the coffee house can accept, it is better to develop design using impact-resistant and wear-resistant materials.
Interior styles for coffee shops
Our company follows global trends and annually replenishes its piggy bank with fresh ideas. However, there are several styles, the use of which will make the design of a coffee shop bright and relevant: 1. Classic furnishings. This strict and “rich” style is based on quality wood furniture, Viennese bar stools and soft sofas with leather upholstery. Classic establishments will ideally fit into the business district, where businessmen like to have lunch with a cup of high-quality and expensive coffee. 2. Shabby chic. Cozy shabby is discreet pastel colors with accents and splashes of blue, pink and soft green shades, authentic restored furniture and a romantic atmosphere with a touch of home comfort. A small coffee shop, the interior of which will be made in a shabby style, will become an adornment of the tourist part of the city, where young couples often walk. 3. Provence. A comfortable Provence-style coffee house is an ageless classic imbued with sophistication and tranquility. Here it is important to choose materials of light colors, furniture with signs of aging, forged vintage lamps and ceramic decorations of traditional forms. Our designers will help you choose the interior of a coffee house in the Provence style. 4. Contemporary. Young people prefer catchy, catchy styles, so they like the newfangled contemporary. The style uses unusual objects of contemporary art, catchy color combinations, creative interior compositions, light installations and non-trivial tableware with bright pictures and logos. Also, cafes often use loft, art deco, futurism and modern – popular design trends that remain relevant for all types of commercial establishments.
Non-standard ideas for the best coffee shop interiors
In the practice of the Ionosphere studio, we had to work with unusual ideas for decoration, but the most interesting of them were the following: 1. Slate coating on the walls. This idea came to us from Europe, where menus and offers of the day in cafes are written in chalk on walls covered with graphite paint or special panels. Also, this finish is relevant for play areas where children can draw with crayons directly on the walls. 2. Unusual lamps. Our designers had to develop the design of a mini coffee shop with bright lighting fixtures in the form of cappuccino cups and even halves of a coffee bean. 3. Decorated ceiling. Another non-standard idea from abroad is the ceiling, decorated with overturned bar stools and tables, exactly repeating the atmosphere in the main part of the cafe. 4. Eco style. This feature is relevant in light of the popularity of environmental protection ideas. It is based on ecological materials, an abundance of greenery, stabilized moss decorations and even trees growing in the middle of the terrace.
Sample coffee house design project
Ionosphere will help you determine the right coffee house design and develop a project that will turn abstract ideas into reality. To do this, we will interview the customer in order to understand what he would like to see in his institution – this will help designers to think through the stages of future work more clearly and select the appropriate materials, furniture and decor. When 2-3 main concepts are defined, the specialist goes to the site to take measurements of the premises, determine the location of the main engineering units and draw up a plan of the premises. This data will help determine which of the customer’s ideas is more suitable for implementation, what scale of redevelopment may be needed, and how best to zoning the cafe. The next stage is the creation of a sketch with the search for samples of future decoration and furniture. A plan is attached to the sketch with the exact location and measurements of each selected item, equipment and decor. Also, at the request of the customer, we can create a detailed 3D visualization, which will show how each interior will look like in practice. At this point, the client can evaluate the selected design and make changes. When the design project of the coffee house is ready, we draw up an estimate, think of a phased work plan and transfer the information necessary for work to the contractor.
