DIY Home Coffee Station

Wednesday Feb 15th, 2023


Coffee is the perfect drink any time of day, whether you like it hot, iced or all dressed up! We all love to visit a cute coffee shop once and a while to enjoy a specialty drink. For the mornings that you can’t bare to leave the house, wouldn’t it be nice to have your own little coffee station? A spot at home to make your favourite drinks whenever you want? To make this magic idea a reality, we are going to dive into a DIY of course! 

First Things First

The first choice you will need to make is where you would like your coffee station to live in your kitchen. If you have the available counter space for this project, reserving a designated spot will be simple! All you need to know is if this area will be suitable to use your coffee machine in. However, if your kitchen leaves much to be desired in the way of square footage, you can upgrade a floating shelf or a rolling cart into the coffee station as well! Now it's time to do a little decorating! Here are a few suggestions of what you will need to get started. 


You will need to keep your coffee necessities accessible to bring out the inner barista in you! We are referring to coffee beans, coffee grounds or pods, whatever you fancy! We recommend purchasing a jar or two to display your coffee inside on the counter. If you like to add sweetener or flavour shots to your coffee you will need a few syrup dispensers to add to your station. We suggest giving the dispensers matching labels to add symmetry to create a cohesive look.  

The Essentials  

Every coffee station needs mugs! If you would like to put your best mugs on display, consider adding a mug tree, or opt for a set of stacking mugs! Stirring spoons, straws, and napkins are the perfect accessories to have on hand for guests to use when they visit your home! These will look best in a few decorative containers. If you enjoy lattes, consider purchasing a milk frothier to whip one up on the spot! If you have a big sweet tooth when you enjoy a cup of coffee, add a few treats to the coffee station! Biscotti, cookies or decadent chocolates are all perfect pairings! Who doesn’t love a quaint cookie jar in the kitchen? 


Adding all of these coffee station essentials to your countertop, shelf or rolling cart could make the area look cluttered. To create a little visual interest, add a tray to put your items on. Chose a tray that blends into your existing decor for a clean look. Alternatively, if you’d like to make your coffee station the star of your kitchen, go for a bold, colourful piece that will make a statement. This piece could be a rustic cutting board, a modern tiered tray, or a turntable for easy use. 

To personalize this coffee station, add a few decorative pieces. This could be a piece of art, a house plant, a scented candle, a few cookbooks, or a simple vase of flowers. You may need to play around with a few pieces and their placement to find what works for you and the space. 

Putting It All Together

Now that you have all the pieces you need, it's time to put your coffee station together! This is where you get to be creative and play with placement. Start by figuring out where your coffee machine will sit, and from there adjust the position of your tray, mugs, containers and decor around it in a pleasing way. 

Your hard work has paid off! You now have the perfect complement to your kitchen dedicated to the best pick-me-up! We hope you enjoy using this new addition in your space! If you create a coffee station in your home, tag us on Instagram, we would love to see what you came up with!
