You can choose to create a fun project for yourself and the family by creating a DIY coffee bar or just simply purchase one online. If you don’t want to spend any money, just take a look around your home and repurpose unused space or materials!
A home coffee bar can be visually pleasing and add a unique touch to your home decor. It can also provide a place for you to unwind if you wanted to add some seating around the station or bar. Not only this, but it also helps to keep all your coffee making essentials oganized so you don’t have to root around if you are in a rush.
13 Coffee Bar Ideas
1. Day-to-Night Coffee Cart
The day-to-night drinks cart is a very versatile cart built on wheels, making it easy to move to any location in your house. This cart offers dual-purpose and provides enough space to store your morning coffee essentials and even your evening wine/drinks if you prefer. You can stack each shelf with different items including a book/newspaper, brewing essentials, and coffee extras.
2. White Wood Coffee Station
Making a coffee bar at home can be quite overwhelming since you probably don’t have any idea what will work. White cabinets are a good thing when it comes to style and decoration as they never go out of style. A shelf, drawers to store your other coffee essentials, and a wall-mount cup display rack. This unique coffee station is separate from the kitchen and doesn’t get in the way, which is ideal.
3. Refurbished Coffee Cabinet
Do you have an empty cabinet area in your kitchen that you can’t seem to figure out what to do with it? Well, it’s high time for you to refurbish it as a makeshift coffee station. Store your coffee essentials in one cabinet and keep them organized. If you don’t have the money to spend, this is the perfect solution. It doesn’t have to be located in your kitchen either.
4. Hanging Coffee Cups
Do you have a coffee cup collection that is tucked away in a cupboard? Why not put them all on display and add personality to your homemade coffee bar. This design is just for cups but you can combine it with a coffee bar to put underneath and have a very nice feature wall for your coffee.
5. Keurig Coffee Bar
If you have a Keurig coffee maker at home and you want it to be the center of interest, then you should definitely try this design.

This is a great example of repurposed space in a compact area.
6. Modern Coffee Bar
This coffee bar idea is slightly larger than the others. It looks like it belongs more in a hotel, but it can work in a large house.

7. Kitchen Corner Coffee Bar
