If you are a coffee lover, you probably enjoy a good brew at home rather than running to cafés to savor your favorite cup of java. You can create your own unique coffee station right in your own kitchen using your essential coffee making accessories.
By selecting a special space to place all of your coffee making essentials, you will be able to enjoy your favorite cup that much faster and impress your guest as well! You can use your kitchen counter, side tables, carts, a cabinet, or have a coffee bar custom built to suit your style. Here are a few tips to help you organize and stylize your very own coffee station.
HOW TO CREATE THE BEST HOME COFFEE STATION
The Counter Coffee Station
You can style your own coffee station right on your own kitchen counter! If your counter is small, use a base, like a tray, to put all your coffee essentials in a group to decrease clutter. You can also add a shelf above your coffee machine to place cups, coffee, and other essentials. If your counter is large, simply arrange your station in a way that expresses your individuality by adding a coffee pot, unique cups, and whatever you like.
Carts and Side Tables
Using a side table or cart is great. They allow you to contain your coffee stand to a particular area creating a coffee station nook in your kitchen. Moreover, a large or medium sized kitchen can easily handle a rolling coffee bar created from a kitchen island on wheels. This can be fantastic if you are entertaining guests and want to display all the coffee making gadgets you use to make a great cup of coffee.
You can customize your coffee station by creating a special cabinet to place all your coffee necessities. A customized coffee station is a great idea. You can close the station when it is not in use; thereby, making your kitchen appear less cluttered. There are many ways to customize a coffee space, built in cabinets and shelves with swing doors or a type of opaque roller blinds work too. You can have lights fitted at the top of your nook or use a lamp.
ADDITIONAL THINGS TO INCLUDE IN YOUR COFFEE BAR:
-Bowls for coffee and sugar (glass jars with coffee beans adds a distinctive touch)
-A carrying tray
-If you have a detached coffee station, a unique piece of artwork in the area would look chic
-Special lighting if required
-A special vase for flowers or a succulent plant
TIP: It is not “a rule of thumb” that your coffee station has to be in your kitchen. You can just as well place a coffee bar in your dining room, entertainment room, or home office! Even living rooms can look great with a customized coffee bar designed to be hidden behind closed doors.
