What should I have in a coffee station?

If you’re building your home coffee bar from scratch, here are a few essentials to make sure you include!

  • Coffee beans: This goes without saying! While whole beans are ideal for the best cup of joe, you can also opt for pre-ground beans for a quicker process. And don’t forget somewhere to store them, too!
  • Coffee grinder: Pre-ground coffee beans don’t retain their flavor as well, so a grinder is a must if you want that truly drool-worthy brew. This portable electric one makes it easy to quickly grind your beans right before use!
  • Mugs: The cuter the better! There’s nothing like sipping that first cup of coffee from your favorite mug — we’re currently loving this lavender set.
  • Condiments: Depending on how you like your coffee, this could include sugar, creamer, simple syrups, or even cinnamon.

And don’t forget one of the most important parts of your at-home coffee station: a way to make the coffee! There are tons of different types of coffee set-up ideas, so we’ll quickly break down each one to help you build your perfect bar at home.

  • Drip Coffee: If you’re looking for something simple and easy, this is the way to go. All you need is a drip coffee machine and some filters.

What items should be on a coffee bar?

When you’re creating a coffee bar at home, you can make your set-up as simple or as extravagant as you want. If you have enough room, you can arrange all of your coffee station essentials on the bar — including your beans, coffee maker, grinder, mugs, and condiments. But you don’t necessarily need (or want!) to put everything on display! 

Closed cabinets, drawers, or even storage boxes are great ideas for hiding the less aesthetic parts of your coffee station, like your grinder and filters. This leaves more space on your coffee bar for your cute decor ideas, like chic mugs and stylish trays. 

For a DIY home coffee bar that instantly sparks joy in the morning, look for cute AND practical display ideas that reflect your personal style. Think: stylish storage containers for your beans, pretty gold stirring spoons, funky iced coffee glasses, and unique sugar bowls!

How do I build a coffee station or bar in my kitchen at home?

Whether you have endless counter space or just a tiny nook, there are plenty of ideas for building a DIY coffee station, nook, or bar in your kitchen at home! 

For larger kitchens, designate a specific area on your counter for your coffee set-up. Bonus points if you can give your coffee station its own cabinet! To make this home coffee bar stand out from your other counter space, opt for unique decor ideas — we love the idea of displaying a coffee-themed art print or arranging all your items on a boho wicker tray

If you have a smaller kitchen, you may need to get creative when building your home coffee bar — one of our favorite ideas is using a bar cart to DIY your coffee station! Find some empty wall space to set it up, and maximize your storage with floating shelves or chic storage containers. 

From there, you can make the coffee bar your own with unique ideas that showcase your home decor aesthetic. Opt for a pretty pastel espresso machine, hang a unique tea towel, or display your essentials in a fun bowl (this one looks like a coffee filter!). You can even up the cozy factor with a small lamp or add a pop of color with a floral tray. The options are endless!

Here’s the good news: you can DIY a gorgeous home coffee bar or station on a budget — and we have the best ideas for the job! Before we get into all of our favorite coffee bar ideas, here are a few ways to recreate them without breaking the bank:

  • Repurpose existing furniture: That tiny side table you don’t know what to do with? Make it your coffee station! If you don’t have extra furniture, another one of our fave ideas is thrifting your coffee bar essentials — or picking up one of these affordable rolling stations.
  • Get crafty: Many of our favorite coffee bar ideas can be DIYed for less with a little craftiness. Create a custom backsplash, make your own simple syrups, or build your own shelves. When you get creative, the options are endless!
  • Use reusable filters: While they cost more upfront, this is one of our favorite ideas for saving money on your home coffee bar. Plus, reusable filters are also more sustainable!

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, and this small nook style home coffee bar is proof! All you need is a single cabinet to bring this coffee station to life, complete with a couple of small shelves for your mugs.

We also love how this coffee nook features a pull-out tray to hold all your essentials. Pull it out to make your morning brew, then roll it back in once you’re done. (This is way easier to install than you think!) It’s perfect for keeping your coffee maker, kettle, and other must-have items neat and tidy.

Minimalists, this one’s definitely for you!

2. Best Coffee Bar Ideas for Maximalists: Paint Your Station a Bright Color

For coffee bar ideas that instantly wake you up, look no further than this bright blue station! Whether you’re using a tiny side table or an entire cabinet, painting your coffee bar a bold color will give you that extra jolt of energy in the morning — before you’ve even had your first sip of coffee.

With such a statement look for your DIY coffee bar, you can keep the rest of your decor ideas simple. Stick to classic white mugs (we found the same ones from the photo!), natural wood accents, and a simple dried bouquet to let that bright color really shine.

3. Best Coffee Station Idea That Makes a Statement: Add Floral Wallpaper

This is one of our favorite DIY ideas for creating a home coffee bar that stands out! If you’re working with a built-in cabinet design, give it that extra oomph by adding a statement wallpaper behind the shelves. We LOVE this moody floral one for a feminine touch — but there are also gorgeous options for all styles!

You can recreate this idea for a classic kitchen cabinet or an open shelf design (the built-in coffee bar above was completely DIYed!). It’s the cutest way to turn your small coffee nook into one of your favorite places in the house.

4. Best Home Coffee Bar Ideas for a Cohesive Station: Choose a Monochrome Color Palette

If you’re worried about your small home coffee bar looking cluttered, streamline all your decor ideas with a single color palette. We love love love the dreamy monochrome look of this mini coffee station, with a white espresso machine, white mug, white serving boards, and even a white floral arrangement. Obsessed!

To keep your monochrome coffee bar ideas from blending together, mix in different textures (like the white dish towel and grooved vase). You can also offset the design with a few neutral details, like those wood + glass coffee containers. It’s cohesive, without looking too matchy-matchy!

5. Best Home Coffee Bar Ideas for a Stylish DIY: Add a Backsplash

If you’re designating all your coffee bar ideas to one nook, make the most out of your station with a chic backsplash. Such an upgrade to a basic white wall, a backsplash will instantly give your home coffee bar an elevated, intentional feel. Plus it works for any size of space!

For a super simple DIY, we love these peel and stick tiles. Not only are they easy to install for a coffee bar nook, but they’re also one of our favorite ideas for renters!

6. Best Home Coffee Bar Ideas for Remote Workers: Make Your Station Portable

When it comes to at home coffee bars, counter space is usually pretty limited. To make room for all your coffee essentials, stop thinking horizontally and go vertical instead — aka, with floating shelves!

With vertical coffee bar ideas, even the smallest nook can become a decked out caffeine station. Add long shelves like the example above for maximum storage (there’s even room for your coffee-loving cat!), or create cute accents above your DIY coffee bar with small statement shelves. The options are endless!

It’s also one of the best DIY ideas for small coffee bars and nooks — it’s simple, it doesn’t take up space, and it’s SO cute!

While any artwork will take your coffee bar to the next level, we especially love prints with a coffee theme. This one is gorgeous if you’re going for a retro vibe. And if one print just isn’t enough, here’s an entire gallery wall set for your DIY coffee bar!

And its easy to DIY! Break out your paint and tape, or keep it simple with a peel and stick decal (we found that exact terracotta color!).

Or for home coffee bar ideas that require less set-up, why not opt for a mug tree instead? We especially love this idea for small coffee bar nooks. Mug trees takes up less kitchen counter space, while still making your mugs easily accessible. Plus, they’re just so dang cute!

Display your mug tree next to your coffee maker for a simple caffeination station that works for any countertop. We’re also taking notes from the example above and adding a cozy candle — this one is coffee scented!

Enjoy the luxury of coffee in bed every day by setting up a designated coffee station in your bedroom. For smaller spaces, you can use the top of your existing cabinet or dresser, or create a mini nook with a small side table. If you’re not a morning person yet, you will be soon!

Calling all plant parents! For decor ideas that liven up any home coffee bar, it doesn’t get better than plants. Add some succulents around your coffee station for a dose of greenery, or go all out by filling your shelves with leafy pots.

Because if you’re not venturing outside for your morning brew, then you might as well bring the outside in! Bonus points if you paint your coffee bar a matching green hue — or if that’s not an option, channel the theme with a pastel green coffee maker or these plant-themed mugs. We love!

17. Best Coffee Bar Ideas When You Have Zero Counter Space: Utilize Your Kitchen Cabinet

Short on counter space? No prob — create your home coffee bar inside a cabinet instead! Having a dedicated cabinet just for your coffee station makes mornings a breeze. Clear out the bottom shelf for your espresso machine and coffee bean storage, then dedicate the top shelves to mugs and other dishes.

This is one of our favorite DIY coffee bar ideas for small nooks and anyone who loves a super tidy space. It’s like creating your own counter space that you can easily hide away when you’re finished!

For home coffee bar ideas that spark some serious joy, add a pop of pink to your station! This one’s for all the Barbie fans out there (Hi, Barbie!), and we love how it gives your coffee nook a cohesive feel that’s anything but boring.

Instead of all pink everything, add the perfect blush touch with some pink mugs, art prints, tea towels, and fresh flowers. It brightens up your space, without looking like a coffee station in the Barbie Dream House. And if pink isn’t your jam, swap it out with any color of your choice!
