Creating a DIY coffee station provides a fun and inexpensive way to present more of a café feel instead of a cluttered one for you and your guests. The best thing about a coffee station is that you don’t need a lot of space so it can be tailored to your kitchen’s footprint.
Trick the eye. One of my favorite tricks is to use a serving tray as a way to tidy things up. There’s an immediate transformation from a clutter of coffee bags/cups, spoons, syrups etc. to an organized collection, just by adding a simple tray to trick the eye.
Get off the counter. Most bar carts are just wide enough to fit a stylish Keurig or your coffee-maker of choice ( I’m falling for French press at the moment). You can actually use hanging racks (I got mine at Target) to place mugs above your machine! Since I have an obsession with mugs I honestly don’t have enough room in my cabinets for all of them anyway [insert embarrassed face emoji].
Put things away. If you’re not into having your items on full-display, take a quick visit over to the flea market a next yard sale and search out a vintage drawer/table. Simply slide it into the corner of the kitchen and use drawers to store spoons, extra cups, etc.
Shop the look:
Now you can create a space as curated as your cup of coffee. Cheers to sipping in style!
