If you love a good cup of coffee in the morning or at any time of the day for that matter, you’ve got company. So do I, and millions of other people around the world too! It’s the main reason coffee bars have become such popular interior features. But to create the ideal coffee corner, which is also called a coffee bar, you’ll need some essentials like a coffee table and dining room chairs.
Salient Elements of a Coffee Corner/Bar
Typically located in the kitchen, a coffee bar is a central location for the tools needed to make and enjoy a cup of coffee (and for some people tea as well). Tools like a coffee maker, a kettle, a console for coffee ingredients, and a few cups are often kept in the coffee corner or bar.
Be Smart with Small or Tricky Spaces
Limited space doesn’t have to mean foregoing the benefits of a coffee bar. If you examine the space thoroughly you might just find the perfect little nook. Perhaps that space beside the refrigerator or the section below the window will do the job. If the space is in a corner, your best bet is an angled custom cabinet, designed to function as a coffee bar.
Another idea for a coffee corner in a small space is to just dedicate that section of the kitchen counter to all things coffee. The cupboard space above the counter could also be incorporated into the space.
If you’ve got enough space a chair or some form of seating is a great addition to a coffee corner. Space next to a window with a scenic view is also ideal. A counter, which could be adjustable, and a chair or two would suffice in this case. And of course, this can be achieved through a DIY project.
Consider Going Flexible
A mobile coffee corner is a great idea for those who like to vary their coffee break locations. A coffee station on wheels designed to fit into your available corners gets the job done. A coffee station like this can easily fit into corners in your study, living room or even your porch.
A coffee bar is a cute and convenient idea for the modern living space. Whether you opt for the DIY or the professional approach, the coffee bar you create should be a haven for you to make and enjoy your morning cup.
