Our coffee shop design services have a proven process:

During your initial consultation, we'll discuss your needs, determine if we're a potential fit, and present you with a custom proposal.

We discuss your needs and goals in a 30-minute complimentary consultation.

You'll receive a detailed proposal, including inspiration photos based on what we believe you're looking for and cost estimates for the project.

If you decide to proceed with partnering with us, you'll e-sign the proposal and submit a deposit to get started—no paper, no hassle.

and Onboarding

We understand that every business is unique, and so are its design needs. In the discovery stage, we define and articulate your design requirements, preferences, and long-term objectives.

Our team is curious about your coffee shop’s challenges, committed to your ROI, and driven to achieve your vision. In a 90-minute onboarding session, we’ll explore your goals and dreams for your coffee shop. In-person is best, but we can also meet via video call through the HHDesigners app.

Our creative team, led by our Executive Vision Director, crafts a custom design brief that reflects the project vision, goals, timeline, scope, and budget for your specific coffee shop. 

Our Vision Director will walk you through the brief and explain what you can expect in detail, so there are no surprises along the way.

and Schematic Design

We begin every design with meticulous research and in-depth analysis. The needs of your coffee shop are our top priority. Our design team will create a space that provides comfort and class for your guests as they tour your coffee shop.

Through extensive industry and market research, we provide recommendations that align with the preferences and tastes of your client demographic. 

We create a functional floor and furniture plan that not only maximizes the impact of your design but also ensures a flow that perfectly serves your team and your guests. Coffee shops need space to brew while maintaining order and flow. We’ll help you provide a memorable experience for your guests.

Some coffee shop owners choose to offer full table service and need to consider the workflow of the waitstaff. Others opt for self-service and require space for a customer queue. 

We develop a schematic design, including the colors, styles, and materials best suited to your space.

We conduct a thorough financial review to ensure that the design elements we've chosen align with your allocated budget, and present the floor plans and schematic design for your approval.

and FF&E

We know how important it is to be able to visualize how your coffee shop design will look before the work begins. Our masterful renderings make you feel like you're already there, so you know exactly what to look forward to.

We present beautiful 3D renderings to offer a flawless peek and real-time view of your future coffee shop. 

We understand that as a coffee shop owner, you want a design that is aesthetically pleasing with sturdy fixtures that are easy to clean and can withstand constant traffic.

For this reason, we select the FF&E (furniture, fixtures, and equipment) that work best for your space and provide sample materials when possible to give you a physical feel for your design. 

Every product is spec'd beforehand, eliminating all guesswork regarding what material should be used or how much of it is needed. (We only spec national brands, so they are easier to get and distribute anywhere in the world.)

The Spec Book

It's time for the big reveal of your coffee shop. Your very own Spec Book is a comprehensive book of design plans tailored to inform and direct your architects, contractors, and builders during every step of the construction process.

Receive a beautifully designed hard copy, PDF, and CAD drawings to share with your contractor.

From precise ID drawings to 3D renderings, from elevation and lighting plans to floor plans to fixtures, everything you need is always at your fingertips.

After the spec book is completed, we’re available to answer any questions or concerns you or your contractor have about the design of your coffee shop. We are as thrilled as you are to see your vision come alive.

About HH Designers and our history with coffee shop interior design

At HH Designers, we put the work into getting to know our clients and their specific needs. Coffee shop owners compete with some of the largest national chains, which makes it essential that yours stands out. 

We’ll help you create the exact mood that you're looking for. From a funky space where people can stay and work or study to a quick and convenient grab-and-go style coffee counter that sees high volumes of traffic, we can make it happen.

Some coffee shop owners want a space for weekly poetry readings or book clubs to meet, while others are looking for an upscale after-dinner hot spot in the city that serves specialty coffees and desserts.

Whatever it is you desire, we focus on the details that optimize your ROI.
