Have you noticed how beautifying something seems to usually start with cleaning, curating, organizing? So if you want to organize your coffee corner, you’d get exactly that and more. After installing those floating shelves for all the coffee abubot, let’s move on to prettifying it even further by organizing it.
Here are the things to do when you want to organize a coffee corner. These tips can also be used for other areas around the home.
1 Pick a color palette
Choose a color palette that appeals to you. There are many ways to pick a color palette or scheme, from monochromatic to complementary colors. If you don’t know how to combine color, read this post about different color schemes.
Tips: When choosing a color palette, take your cue from the more expensive items like your coffee machine or coffeemaker. Also, don’t forget to consider the colors of the surroundings, like the table, shelves, or the wall.
2 Curate your coffee equipment
You may have numerous coffee cups, saucers, mugs, teaspoons, etc. You may be even be one of those who has a coffee machine and a coffee maker and a kettle and a moka pot and a coffee press and… If that’s you, just choose your favorite way of making coffee and put away the rest.
The same goes for all those cups, mugs, insulated tumblers and bottles. You really don’t need to display everything because (continue reading in the next section)…
3 Designate a place for everything
…when everything is a lot then there’s no place for everything. The eye can only take so much.
We don’t notice each and every feature of what we see. With the visual stimuli that confronts us everyday, it is perhaps a blessing that our brain organizes patterns, objects, and shapes, and assigns relationships between elements. We use color, size, shapes, and orientation (of forms) to assign relationships. Color is the most powerful of all four and overrides other attributes, meaning, our eyes see the relationship first of the same-colored objects despite that they are of similar size, shape, or orientation.
For your coffee corner, organize the objects by function.
4 Make use of vertical space
Think of shelves or hanging cabinets to take advantage of vertical space. That’s always a good solution for storage requirements. If you’re using open shelves, then your things can even double as decor. Just make sure to keep them tidy.
5 Keep the coffee counter clean
Don’t limit the cleaning to your coffee counter. Set your sights further…to the whole house, in fact. A clean home is a happy and healthy home. Do this regularly with the rest of the household—your kasambahays, kids (chores are good for the soul), and even pets.
