What is a tavern?

The term tavernetta derives from "taverna", which indicates a type of place where people stop to eat traditional dishes and drink drinks (especially alcoholic drinks such as wines, beers and grappa), mostly dishes cooked to good, in a simple and humble way.
The tavern is divided into two categories: the trattoria, where you eat and the tavern, where, instead, you go to drink a good glass of local wine. The main characteristic of the taverns, in addition to the type of dishes offered, is the very rustic, simple and welcoming decor.

Typical characteristics of a tavern

Like the tavern, the tavern is characterized by a warm and welcoming, often modest in size, very informal, furnished with rustic wooden furniture.

Usually, the space for the tavern is used as a kitchen and dining room, where you can eat with your family and relax a little while chatting or watching a TV programme.
When the environment allows, you get a small bathroom service that is comfortable and very practical.
The peculiarities of the tavernette translates into a rustic decor, with a predominance of wood and poor art style.
Other recurring elements in a tavern are the stone and terracotta floors, which contribute to recreate a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.

If you want to include a more unusual and particular element in the furniture of your tavern, we recommend a trolley for walnut wood cured meats like the ones we recommended in the picture above.

It is a very practical piece of furniture, as well as aesthetically pleasing, because it allows you to use it as a table top, where you can store, for example, fruit, and then place it next to the table during meals, full of cheese and freshly sliced meats.

5. TV cabinet or Wall fitted

Depending on the space available, you can decide to purchase a TV cabinet or a wall unit, which contains the TV.
If the choice falls on the first option, we recommend a TV cabinet in Arte Povera, with dark walnut finish, small size, so as not to clutter the environment, with some drawers where to store documents and objects various.Wooden TV cabinet in Arte Povera
If, instead, you have more space available, then the wall system, better if removable to facilitate transport, is undoubtedly the best solution, because it combines three functions in a single cabinet:

You can use it as a showcase;
You can use it as a library.
A great way to optimize space and costs.

6. Bathroom furniture

The bathroom that is obtained inside a tavern is often of small dimensions, this leads us to recommend an integrated solution, including furniture with drawers and mirror, as the one shown in the previous photo.
It is a very elegant and refined bathroom furniture, but at the same time simple and space-saving.
If you still have some free space in the bathroom, you might opt for a broom cabinet, perfect for keeping everything tidy, from detergents to personal care products.
With a little curiosity and attention, you can furnish a tavern with furniture in poor art, as we have suggested in this article, or in different ways.
