How to Create the Best Home Coffee Bar
As colder weather sets in, there’s nothing cozier than sipping a warm beverage from your favorite mug. If you’re tired of overpaying for those pricey specialty drinks, take matters into your own hands and create a home coffee bar.
You can design a coffee station that would make a barista jealous or utilize a simple nook in the corner. Either way, work with your space, budget, and most importantly, taste buds. If you need a little inspiration, we’re serving up some great coffee bar ideas. Let’s get started!
First, check out a stylish and functional home coffee station designed by one of our HKB Designers.
6 Elements to DIY a Home Coffee Bar
Serving Space – From a movable bar cart, a vintage buffet, to the kitchen countertop, start your coffee station adventure by finding your serving area.
Coffee Maker – Next, you can’t have a coffee bar without the star of the show. There are numerous ways to prepare a cup of joe. Some methods take up more room than others. Be mindful of your serving space.
Vertical Storage Solutions – Hooks mounted under floating shelves pull double storage duty. Hang coffee cups and store baskets or canisters full of coffee and tea essentials for a practical, out-of-the-way decorative statement.
Drawers & Custom Cabinet Storage – Keep everything you need to make your morning coffee organized and well-stocked in one spot. This includes specialty storage for filters, sugar packets, tea, and other miscellaneous coffee supplies. You can even add organizers for K-Cups if you have a Keurig.
Small Sink – A bar sink with an instant filtered hot water faucet allows you to easily add water to your coffee pot or make tea at the perfect temperature.
Small refrigerator – Finally, a mini bar refrigerator keeps milk and flavored creamers handy as well as cold beverages when entertaining.
Coffee Bar Bottom Line
A coffee bar can provide that coffeehouse vibe in the comfort of your own home. Aside from your morning cup of joe — or whatever your cup of tea happens to be — you can also use your coffee station as a wine bar. This functional, inviting area makes entertaining much easier. It keeps your beverage necessities organized and makes your guest feel right at home.
