You can create your own unique coffee station right in your own kitchen using your essential coffee making accessories. Find incredible coffee bar ideas and transform your kitchen into a great coffee place!

By selecting a special space to place all of your coffee making essentials, you will be able to enjoy your favorite cup much faster. On top of that you will impress your guest as well! You can create a kitchen coffee bar with side tables, carts, a cabinet, or have a home coffee bar custom built to suit your style. Here are a few tips to help you organize and stylize your very own coffee station.


Home coffee bars need some time and investment to become the ones you dream of. There are plenty of ways you can accomplish this and trust me, th evest ones are right here!

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. However, if your counter is large, simply arrange your station in a way that expresses your individuality. You could add a coffee pot, unique cups, and whatever you like. Also, consider using a coffee station table!

Carts and Side Tables

Using a side coffee station 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.

Customized home coffee bars

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.

Coffee bar shelf

A coffee bar shelf is something you should really pay attention to. Your whole coffee bar station idea depends on the shelf you are going to choose. So if it is a vintage one, this will create a vintage essense that is quite trendy these days. However, there are other coffe bar shelf options out there. Coming in different colors and sizes and shapes, you will be spoilt for choice!


-Bowls for coffee and sugar (glass jars with coffee beans adds a distinctive touch)
-A carrying tray
-For 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 you have a kitchen coffee bar. It would be wise to place a coffee bar in your dining room, entertainment room, or home office, too! Even living rooms can look great with a customized design for a bar to be hidden behind closed doors. Either way, here are some coffee bar ideas you can get inspiration from.
