With the right supplies and a little decorating, you can recreate the function and ambiance of your favorite coffee shop right at home. Designate a space in your home (think: a kitchen pantry, unused cabinet or nearby closet) to store your daily coffee essentials like pods or grounds, syrups and your adorable mug collection. From fully-stocked coffee cabinets and hideaway beverage nooks to space-saving setups like a mobile coffee cart, we’ve rounded up DIY coffee bar ideas fit for every space, budget and home style.
Whether your design style is modern, minimal or you’ve cultivated a farmhouse aesthetic, you’ll find a coffee bar idea that will make a statement in your home. You may have a spacious kitchen design and you’re able to dedicate a built-in cabinet to your coffee collection, or you may be working with a small kitchen where every square inch counts (hint: try building your coffee bar in your home office instead).
As you gather inspiration, you’ll find how easy it is to customize a coffee area to fit your household’s tastebuds, mixing in tasty treats, tea bags, hot cocoa and even wine or alcohol. We’ve sprinkled in a few functional design schemes that transition quickly from day to night, so you can brew a fresh cup of coffee in the morning and become a mixologist in the evening (yes, we’re talking espresso martinis).
