DIY Home Coffee Station

DIY Home Coffee Station

National Coffee Day Calls for some at-home coffee inspo!

If you’re as much of a coffee addict as I am, you’ll appreciate a special space designated specifically for your morning pick-me-up. A small corner of your already-utilized kitchen counterspace isn’t always enough room for your coffee maker and all your coffee-related necessities. In honor of National Coffee Day, which I personally deem a very important holiday, here are some ideas and inspiration for creating your very own coffee station.

Metal Wire Kitchen Pantry Food Storage Basket

Whether you’re fresh out of counterspace, living in an apartment with limited room or just simply want to set aside an area specifically for your daily caffeine dose, a portable DIY option may be the way to go. Carts are a trendy, perfect solution to maximizing the use of your space as well as providing the option to rearrange it when necessary. Not to mention – they add character to any home!

One problem many coffee drinkers run into, is where to store all the extra coffee grounds, filters and/or K-cups (if you’re an avid Keurig user, like myself). I’ve filled up an entire cabinet section with just mugs, coffee and sugar packet boxes alone! Baskets, trays and lazy Susan’s are perfect ways to organize lots of items into a small space without clutter or difficulty finding them when needed. Mixing up textures such as metal, wicker and glass/plastic give the cart a unique look when combined, as well.

Glass jars and containers make perfect sugar/stirring stick organizers and you can even include your extra inventory on the bottom shelf in one of a baskets or solid containers. Two or three tier turntables can serve as mug or K-Cup holders that are easy to navigate. A tray is a good option for holding your sugar/stirring stick containers along with a decorative mug or two. Wall-hanging bins with hooks for your favorite mugs are also a great space-efficient option if you want to mix it up and add another eye-catching arrangement above your cart.

There are many ways to design your beverage station to achieve the look you’re going for – whether that be a modern, rustic or farmhouse theme. The below mDesign products are some of my favorites that are versatile in both function and style, that meet all my coffee organization needs mentioned above:
