A fresh cup of coffee never goes out of style, but kitchen cabinets cluttered with coffee pods, syrups and mugs certainly do. Streamline your morning routine by setting up any one of these coffee bar ideas. It’s as simple as it sounds: Carve out a space in your home (think: a kitchen cabinet, countertop, pantry or bar cart) and fill it with everything you need to fix up the ultimate morning brew, afternoon pick-me-up or after-hours nightcap. Here, you’ll find an easy DIY that fits your space, budget and overall decor style, ranging from a fully-stocked coffee bar tucked away in a built-in cabinet to space-saving coffee cart that you can move from room to room. Even if you’re short on space, these easy DIYs will show you clever ways to make room for a coffee station in a small kitchen.
Sure, they’re a functional addition to any coffee lover’s home, but most of these coffee bars also make great statement pieces, no matter if your space embraces a modern, classic or farmhouse aesthetic. You can customize your coffee bar to fit your household’s tastebuds, mixing in hot cocoa pouches, tea bags and other drinks for everyone else to sip on.
