If you are a coffee lover like I am, a dedicated coffee station is something that can bring real joy to your mornings. Whether you like to use a French press, an espresso machine, or use a filter setup, a dedicated coffee bar where you can store your beans, filters, prettiest coffee mugs, or milk frother all within easy access is such a great advantage.

You don’t need a large surface to carry out some of the coffee station ideas in the list below. Some coffee makers take up more space than others, however, usually having a dedicated counter space somewhere in your kitchen is sufficient to bring all your coffee essentials together and create a beautiful coffee station.

Take a look at the inspiration below and get ideas on how you can integrate a coffee bar into your own kitchen or dining room. And the good news? You don’t need to be an interior designer to carry out some of these genius ideas!

A kitchen dining room with a small coffee station inside the tall kitchen cupboards

I think this is one of those brilliant coffee station ideas that is truly unique and practical. The small space in between the closed cabinets was left open to pour yourself a cup of coffee from the Moccamaster coffee maker, yet it’s narrow enough not to have to compromise too much cupboard storage space.

The back and side of the niche coffee bar are lined with white tiles with black grout, which gives this area its own finished appearance. It’s such a creative idea and a great use of this kitchen corner.

A hidden coffee station behind a roller cabinet

One of the more subtle coffee bar ideas on the list in this kitchen with a smart corner layout includes a coffee station behind a roller door, with open shelving on top to display pretty cups and ceramics.

Some coffee equipment is pretty, however, if you want to hide your coffee machine away for a clutter-free appearance, placing it behind a cabinet door or roller door in this case still makes it easily accessible. Yet, you can hide it away when it’s not in use.

The corner section of a kitchen is sometimes a lost area that is difficult to make functional, so placing the coffee bar here is a great workaround.

An elegant coffee bar inside a tall cupboard with LED overhead lighting

LED overhead lighting certainly adds some extra elegance to your home coffee station. The niche coffee bar inside of this tall cupboard setup with dark green cabinet doors has a contrasting white counter material on which the coffee maker is placed.

The sides have the same color as the cabinets and LED overhead lighting makes sure the coffee station can be illuminated at night, which is great for making coffee very early in the morning while it’s still dark out.

The coffee bar is close to the kitchen sink on the other wall, which makes it easier to brew yourself a cup of coffee in the morning.

A niche coffee station with floating shelves for coffee mugs

A niche spot in between the main kitchen and the large window is filled with a coffee bar that includes a table-like structure in combination with a wood wall shelf with an integrated peg rail. The contrast between the dark wood tones, the white walls, and the cement flooring works very nicely in this coffee bar and it utilizes an otherwise lost area.

If you want to achieve this look but don’t want to work with a fixed element, you can also use a rolling cart that fits the space and combine it with wall shelves for an easy diy coffee station.

A kitchen corner is turned into a small spot for the coffee machine and a glass cabinet

An awkward corner spot against the wall is the perfect spot for a low kitchen cabinet with a small counter for the coffee maker. The glass cabinet is great for holding coffee supplies, mugs, and coffee accessories. Since the upper cabinet is less deep than the lower one, the view toward the kitchen doesn’t get too obstructed.

The ribbed glass panel inside the door is see-through, yet it makes the contents of the cabinet blurry for a calming effect in the space.

The cabinet doors have the same color and design as the main kitchen cabinets and they open on top of the kitchen counter.

The light oak kitchen cabinets pair up nicely with the subtle light grey wall color and the stainless steel wall shelves that are perfect as the finishing touch to the style of this minimal home coffee bar.

The floating shelves contain the essentials, a beautiful arrangement of cups, coffee grounds, and a coffee machine resting on the bottom of the cabinet. You can open the cabinet in the morning to have everything easily accessible and close the pantry when you don’t need it.

A coffee station with an open shelf set in the main kitchen area

While you can create a separate coffee station on a rolling cart or inside of a tall cupboard, like in most of the coffee bar ideas on this list, you can also integrate your coffee bar in the main kitchen area and dedicate some countertop space to your coffee maker.

This beautiful kitchen with pale yellow cabinets and a white shiplap backsplash transforms a niche space next to the tall kitchen cabinets into a coffee station. Adding the two wall shelves works great for glasses, however, it could also be used as a mug rack to quickly grab your morning coffee.

Another great coffee station that is included inside one of the cupboards for an elegant effect and the ability to hide the coffee maker or French press away when it’s not in use. The dark oak kitchen cabinets come back in the backsplash of the coffee bar for an elegant and moody effect from which the stainless steel of the coffee maker stands out.

When you are planning your kitchen from scratch, you can include a coffee bar with integrated doors and drawers to store additional coffee supplies away.

This beautiful kitchen with light oak cabinets has a tall cupboard that is completely dedicated to a home coffee station, with two open shelves on top for storing ceramics, sugar, and tea bags, a countertop area for the electric kettle or coffee supplies, and three drawers on the bottom to store, sugar, coffee beans, tea, and other essentials.
