Serving great coffee is one thing, but there’s another aspect that is essential to the success of any coffee shop, and that is ambience. Many people will put as much importance on the overall atmosphere of a coffee shop as they will on the quality of the coffee itself, and this is why it should play a central role in your business strategy. Here are a few fail-safe ideas in order to help you improve your coffee shop décor.
1. Brightly Lit and Cozy
There are different types of people that walk into a coffee shop. Some are just looking for a quick pick-me-up to help them start the day and others just want to sit and enjoy the aesthetics of sitting in a café while they read a book and enjoy their morning brew. If you want to cater to both these types of people, you need to make sure that your coffee shop is well lit, spacious and tidy.
Making your coffee shop cozy with a few couches around a coffee table as well as lamps on the tables is out of the ordinary but improves the overall look and feel of your shop. The addition of these few things will make your coffee shop go from looking like an ordinary café to a haven for away from home workers.
2. Personalized Ware
Another touch that could add a little bit of personality to your shop is the tableware that you’re using. Many people neglect this aspect, but this is one of the things that really helps brand your coffee shop. It can also be used as a marketing tool as well. There are many manufactures that offer personalized mugs for coffee shops and they only cost a fraction more than regular non-descript mugs, with the exception that the former will look much more professional and will help bring brand awareness in a way regular mugs won’t.
3. An In-House Bakery
A sure-fire way to appeal to those customers with a sweet tooth is to have a glass display of baked goods in your coffee house. It’s no secret that nothing goes better with bitter tasting espressos than chocolate croissants. A glass display filled with red velvet cupcakes, lemon tarts, Nutella donuts and chocolate croissants might convince more patrons to go for more than a cup. Not only will this increase your sales but also bring a wider variety of customers into your coffee shop.
4. A Bookshelf and Charging Ports
To complete the aesthetics of your coffee shop, add a little bookshelf and fill it with magazines, newspapers and a few popular books customers that came in to just to pass time. In addition to that, you can install little power booths for customers that came into your shop to get some work done while they sip on their lattes and take their espresso shots.
There are millions of ways to improve your coffee shop interior but the best way to go about it is by making sure you provide the very things people need when they come into a coffee shop. A good strong cup of coffee will only be enhanced with the environment that goes with it. Brighten up the place with extra lamps and make it friendlier by adding comfy couches and sofas around glass tables. And make sure you go the extra mile to satisfy your clients sweet tooth. If you manage to do these adjustments and make the space convenient for workers and casual clients, then you should start seeing positive results soon.
