Whether you love pour-over, espresso, or prefer a pod-based electronic machine, you’ll need to find one that fits the design you’re going for. All three of these elements put together will allow you to easily create the perfect additions to spruce up your coffee station without making it overcrowded.
It isn’t taking up precious kitchen space and it’s subtle enough that it won’t look out of place to the untrained eye.
The surrounding jars, organizers, and wine glasses give it a more subtle feel and let the coffee bar become a multipurpose area. This bold combination of farmhouse rustic barn doors and a modern, metal coffee station set-up works great. The silver coffee machine and kettle fit in nicely with the rest of the design in this area.
The shelving, drawers, and use of space allow for what could have been a cluttered kitchen closet to feel organized. This built-in cabinet coffee station is an even cleaner example that the other spice closet in this list. Having the bottom drawers inside the closet is a nice touch and allows for the entire coffee station to be hidden when needed. But the shining star of this example is the windowed panel that creates an open but smaller space for the corner coffee bar to live in. A small touch, but the pull-out shelving allows for easy access when making coffee in the morning. So subtle you may not have noticed it at first, this small coffee station is perfectly hiding in plain sight.
This closet-style example includes fresh fruit, a blender, and even a juicer, creating the perfect multi-purpose coffee station. A great space-saving idea for a coffee station in the kitchen would be to put the set-up inside of a closet. Repurposing cabinets, closets, and shelving is a popular way to create your own home coffee station and this example is no exception. This tall and slender cabinet is perfect for a single coffee machine and the accenting pottery on the shelves above gives it a nice touch. Putting the coffee brewer inside of the custom shelving adds a nice subtlety, as we’ve seen with other examples in this list. This coffee bar has been given equal space in the kitchen, making the entire room feel balanced.
However, the mirror behind the coffee bar is the star of the show and gives the design a more open feeling. But what sets this coffee station apart is the use of a shelf on the wall that houses not only the espresso maker itself but many different mugs and saucers as well.
White, gold, and even some copper shine through for a nice contrast of the wood of the shelving and coffee station.
This coffee bar features many of the great elements we’ve discussed in this list while including a few wine bottles at the top. This coffee bar does an excellent job of repurposing a cabinet while including shelving for some great storage. However, this example is a bit more similar to pantry and closet hybrid, allowing for a wider area and more kitchen counter space.
Having a coffee hideaway in a closet or pantry is nice, but repurposing an unused set of cupboards can be just as handy. This coffee bar frees up counter space and takes the place of cups, plates, or anything else that would have been housed in these cupboards.
The shelves on the wall above the coffee station are key here as they really open up space on the small counter and remove unnecessary crowding.
