Can I create a tea room at home?
If you love tea and you have a small porch, sun room, or breakfast nook that isn't being well utilized, why not create a tea room in your home? Turning the unused space into a welcoming tea room is fairly easy. To make a special place to indulge your tea habit at home, you should:
- Give the walls a fresh coat of paint. If you are leaning toward a Victorian style tea room, crisp white or soft lavender are good choices. If you want an Asian inspired tea area, bold red or bamboo colored green are smart color choices.
- Avoid oversized furniture. A small round table set, two comfortable wicker or rattan chairs and a footstool would look great in any Victorian tea area. Garden patio pieces are often a good choice, too. A tea cart or side table is a good idea, since you'll need a place to stash tea tins and extra tea pots.
- For an Asian inspired room, a low table, such as a glass topped bamboo coffee table, is a good choice. Large floor cushions will give you a more comfortable seating option than the traditional Japanese tea house floor mats.
