I’m beginning to look at how the interior of the shop and cafe will work. Here is a draft layout. What do you think? A few details are missing eg hand wash basis and sinks in the serving area, but other than that I’m pretty excited about it!
Lots of space for none refridgerated stuff, but do I need more space for butchery and deli produce. Oh and is the cafe too big?
But what about the “feel” of the place? I’m trying to decide between:
- Industrial chic – to use the utilitarian nature of the building as a starting point. Exposing the bricks, using steel and wood for fittings for example.
- Farm House kitchen – Make it a bit more home like, with fixtures and fittings that echo a domestic farm house aga kitchen. Ours in fact.
- Girly tea room – unashamedly pretty, with home made bunting, floral prints and period chic fittings.
