The Best Coffee Kitchen Décor

Updated on June 4, 2014

Coffee decorations for your kitchen

What is the first thing you do when you go into the kitchen in the morning? My guess is you get a cup of coffee. A love of coffee and a cozy kitchen go hand in hand. This is why decorating with pictures of coffee, whether it is of pots, or steaming cups of coffee, makes a fabulous choice of décor for your kitchen. It isn't just prints, and photos. There are many people decorating with other coffee related paraphernalia.

Think of when you go into a coffee house. There, they often have posters, photos or old fashioned ads about coffee. Many times you will see antique coffee pots or collectible items related to coffee.

Which style of coffee décor

There are many different types of coffee décor to choose from. For example you have a retro Americana style. This is usually from the 1950s era. It is the type you would have seen in a diner.

There is also another type of American style. This would be with a traditional coffee pot and is reminiscent of the settlers possibly 1800's.

Then we cross the pond. There are many coffee decorations that have a European flavor. Some have an Italian flair with pictures of cappuccino and Italian coffee presses.

We also find French styles with quaint bistros and coffee houses. The word café will often pop up. These will turn your cosy kitchen into something resembling a French bistro in no time.

Plus there are also now, photos of coffee. Coffee in pots, cups, mugs, etc.

If you are wanting to achieve a certain 'look' in your coffee themed kitchen décor, then select one style and go with that. Then everything will blend together nicely. Let's take a look at what is available. There are no shortage of items, the hard part is deciding which ones.

Retro coffee posters

These would work well in your coffee themed kitchen. A simple black frame is all they would need to be ready to hang either as a group of four together or individually around the kitchen. Their retro feel evokes a traditional bygone era of coffee houses.

 

Old coffee grinders

Decorating with a coffee theme isn't only about pictures, prints and mugs. Take a look at these old grinders. If you have ample counter space in your kitchen, wouldn't they make a wonderful addition to your themed kitchen?

Espresso Anyone?

You can't have a kitchen decorated with a coffee theme without some way of making coffee, now can you? This espresso maker is a stunning design. It also comes gift boxed if you want to give it as a gift to someone who is either a coffee lover or has decorated their kitchen in an Italian theme.

Coffee wall decals

I love using wall decals. They allow me to be creative and put them where I want. That means it is suitable for every kitchen. You choose which ones you want to place where.

Whether you are applying these directly to the wall or onto tile, they will work well. If you aren't happy, move them to another location.

Because this can be used to write on, put this on your message center, aka your refrigerator. No more trying to spell out your message in plastic letters.

Use all or some of these, subtle and stylish. It makes that blank kitchen/dining room wall special. Because they can cover a wide area, it is a great way to tart up a bland wall.

Don't forget your window treatment when decorating in a coffee theme. Here is just one example of a coffee house bistro theme.

Even if it is raining cats and dogs outside, you will be instantly transported to an little bistro in Paris, Rome, or Vienna. Or at least you can imagine you are there.

 

Coffee Clocks

Because anytime is coffee time! These cute clocks can be used to accent your theme. These are from a site called Zazzle. There are many more styles available to choose from. I prefer a square clock but they have square and round clocks also different size clocks as well.

Coffee Rugs

Don't forget the floor when you are decorating. This rug is perfect for the walking between the kitchen and the adjoining room. I also like to stand on a rug at the sink or when I am cooking. I think it is easier on the legs, feet and back. This coffee rug is a perfect choice. Good price for a great rug.
