With the temperature dropping and the days getting shorter, coffee still seems like a great idea. In many situations, people will cram their huge Keurig coffee makers and machines onto any empty counter space in their kitchens, such as a corner mostly along a wall. But if you use yours regularly and regularly bring visitors for coffee, you might also consider starting your own dedicated little coffee station if you have the space. Here are some great ideas to get you started!
But first, let’s know some of the important things you’ll need to keep in mind when designing your own coffee station.
Zoned: Understanding the space you have available for your coffee station is essential. Likewise, if you can take advantage of nooks, crannies, or underutilized vertical space in the kitchen, then do so. This will allow you to easily customize your coffee station to your liking.
Accessibility: Leave at least a foot of counter space between the coffeemaker and the edge of the station. You’ll need space to brew your morning coffee, and you probably won’t want to play balancing games with hot cups.
Accessories: Of course, a coffee maker is needed, but you’ll also need a microwave on hand. You will also need a place to store your extra cups, spoons, saucers, sugar packets, and coffee filters.
Aesthetic: This is an opportunity to give free rein to your imagination and give free rein to your ideas. The best part is that there are several coffee station design ideas to choose from before you start!
After you have locked the four ‘A’s, you can start designing and decorating your own cafe.
The ideal fit
You may need to do some detective work in the kitchen that doesn’t have an apparent location for a coffee station – but if you’re creative enough, you may be able to uncover a suitable location for your own. You can, for example, use a small part of a wall near the kitchen cabinets or just hide your station in the cabinet. For tight, awkward spaces between appliances and counters, bar carts or small tables work well.
Colorful and vibrant
Dark and dramatic colors create a terrific cafe vibe, but you’re not limited if you have a spot that’s brighter or even painted in white or maybe more neutral tones. Using a desk or dresser painted in a bright or vivid shade can really make a splash in a neutral color space. Alternatively, you can just use colorful and quirky accessories such as cups and spoons.
What is brewing?
You can easily turn your coffee station into a real cafe by adding chalkboard menus and other alternative wall decorations. You can place a modestly framed chalkboard on the wall or larger chalkboards that take up more of the wall. You can also make it look a little rustic to achieve the aesthetic of the cafe.
