I recently started to collect as many Lego cats as possible
and then thought they’d look great in a build. The only thing I could think of
was a Cat Café.
I did some research and found the best layout would be with
an open front, similar to the Friends Café set. Tan would be the main colour as
it works very well with most of the other Lego colours.
I started with a basic plan of where everything would be
placed. I drew my idea from the Manchester cat café which has a similar layout.
I initially had an entrance area with a desk and lockers in the plan but
decided it wasn’t needed here. I just included a set of double doors to stop
the cats escaping!
Many cat cafes have quite neutral colour schemes presumably
to keep a calm environment for the cats. But generally, I believe many bright colours are muted down considerably
when seen by a cat.
I’ve always loved bright orange and it works well with lime
green, so that was going to have to be included as the furniture and rugs. I
hope I managed to get just the right amount of variety and detail without
I was spoilt for choice when it came to the cats. There were too many to include so
I took a good selection of shapes and colours and placed them in various
positions. I really wanted to include the cat called Panthara, but the bright
light orange colour just wasn’t realistic. Such a cute cat though.
I’m especially pleased with the sleeping area, and even
though the Lego cats don’t fit through the cat flaps, in real-life they would
be a similar size and real cats would pass through them very easily.
I think I managed to remember everything… cakes and drinks
for the customers; food, water and toys for the cats, and of course a small
gift section in the corner. The paw print stickers on the mugs were a bit
awkward to apply, and I spent quite some time on eBay hunting down the perfect
stickers for the staff t-shirts and the wall art. I’m very pleased with the
selection I have chosen.
During the time spent creating all of my recent Ideas
projects, I’ve found that I really enjoy designing and building interiors. I
think that’s probably the way forward for my future projects.
