Nothing says ‘Hello, Fall!’ like a designated station for serving your favorite cold-weather coffee treats (or tea, hot chocolate, apple cider – we’re not picky). It’s easier than you might think to designate a little space for your very own at-home coffee hot spot. All you need is a little (well organized) imagination. Keep reading to see how these eight spaces made way for a way-dreamy at-home coffee retreat – no renovation required.
Roll with it
A rolling cart is the ideal way to add a coffee station to any room or small space – no kitchen needed! Keep things stacked neatly, and your cart can be easily moved from room to room anytime for an instant on the spot treat.
Hide in plain sight
If you’re prone to clutter and don’t like the idea of having your coffee bar on display, try designating a few cabinet shelves as a built-in coffee station, and simply close the doors when not in use.
Make use of awkward wall space
Rolling or not, a compact cart is the ideal way to make use of that odd bit of extra wall space you never know what to do with.
Flaunt some Scandinavian flair
This IKEA-inspired coffee nook is heavy on Scandinavian influence. To achieve this look, start with an all white palette and layer with neutrals. In this case, stainless steel ties everything together, from the shelving to the crave-worthy espresso maker.
Be true to tradition
An old fashioned kitchen cart sets the stage for this traditional coffee station, complete with vintage kitchen pieces and a cozy, family heirloom vibe.
Say it with simplicity
Designs in black, white, and wood tones are so en vogue at the moment, which is spot on for those who crave minimalist spaces. This low profile coffee nook does the job in style with a vibe that is understated-cool.
Caffeinate with color
Serve your coffee with a shot of invigorating color, like this cheerful nook decorated in a rainbow of high-octane brights.
