In this world of busy lives, we all need help streamlining our morning routines. Something as simple as making coffee can be a real challenge if you’ve pulled an all nighter at work, at school, or out on the town! If you can’t stand the hassle of getting out of bed and going to the kitchen every time you want a cup, you might try placing a mini coffee maker in your bedroom instead. This is an excellent idea if you are willing to make some small adjustments to accommodate the presence of your morning bestie in your bedroom. There are a ton of reasons why putting a coffee maker in your bedroom is a good idea:
It’s a lot easier to make coffee when you’re already in the room.
Coffee lovers are all very familiar with the agony of having to get up early and trek to the kitchen to brew a pot. This is especially true if you share a house with other people. While you may have the best of intentions, it’s easy to disrupt the rest of your household when you’re making coffee first thing in the morning. You might be loud and clunky, or you might just be in the way. If you put a coffee maker in your bedroom, however, you can make your coffee as quietly and easily as possible. You won’t have to worry about waking anyone else up, cluttering up the kitchen, or spilling water on the floor. You can also set a timer so that the coffee will be brewed and ready for you as soon as you wake up. You won’t have to worry about being too groggy to remember to get up and pour yourself a cup.
You can wake up to the smell of coffee, which is comforting.
I love the aroma of my morning brew. But while a freshly brewed pot of coffee is like a warm morning hug to me, it can also be very smelly if other people in the house are not coffee drinkers. If you live with other people, the scent of coffee can be off-putting and annoying to those who don’t drink it. It may also be a little overwhelming if you have small children. If you put a coffee maker in your bedroom, you can brew as much coffee as you like without disturbing anyone else (unless they also share your room, but only coffee lovers are allowed in my bed space!). You can wake up to the comforting and familiar smell of that hazelnut blend in peace every morning.
It’s an easy way to get your day started and set your mood.
Did you know that the smell of coffee alone starts to stir your brain? You heard that right. According to WebMD and the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, studies on rats are unravelling the molecular effects of the smell of coffee on the brain. The studies showed that when sleep deprived rats took a whiff of coffee, over a dozen genes in the brain showed different levels of activity. It also showed that levels of brain proteins changed in ways that could induce calm.
But that’s rats. What about humans? Well, another study featured in Nature used actual humans undergoing dental procedures (because who doesn’t stress when going to the dentist?). In any case, this study showed significantly decreased stress hormones and lower pulse rates in those who smelled the aroma of coffee compared to those who didn’t. Apparently, the lovely aroma might also you make you better at math. Yup, scientific reasons to bring that sweet smell of your pumpkin spice latte right into your bedroom.
Having a small coffee maker in your bedroom can be eco-friendly.
Go for a drip coffee maker in your bedroom rather than a French press to be more eco-friendly right when you roll out of bed. French presses require a lot of water and are not very efficient, so it can take a long time to brew a single cup. A drip coffee maker, on the other hand, can brew a single cup very efficiently. Drip coffee makers also require relatively little water, so they are much more eco-friendly. This will help you to reduce your water footprint while also making your mornings easier.
Your kitchen counter space will thank you.
And because we focus on small spaces here at Compact Furniture Place, if you move that precious coffee maker from the kitchen to the bedroom you’ll be creating more counter space in your kitchen. You’ll either be creating some lovely additional space or making room for that air fryer that you’ve always wanted!
There are many good reasons to put a coffee maker in your bedroom (wink wink science). It’s easier to make coffee when you’re already in the room and you can wake up to the smell of coffee, which is oh so comforting. Plus, it’s an easy way to get your day started and set your mood (and even math) off right. You can go for options that are eco-friendly and create more precious kitchen counter space. Now you can just go for that morning brew right in your bedroom!
