10 DIY Coffee Bar Ideas — Make Your Own Coffee Station

If you begin your mornings with a cup of joe, you need a special nook of your house dedicated to coffee. Running to Starbucks every time you feel like a caffeine fix isn’t always possible. And it isn’t feasible either, unless you want to burn a hole in your wallet.

Creating a mini java station doesn’t take a lot of time – or all that space for that matter. Just about any extra corner in your house can serve as a coffee bar. Let’s take a look at some coffee bar ideas that will spruce up your home and make the fall season even more exciting.

1.Minimal Menu Boards

Coffee Menu Prints

I’m going to begin with this idea because I really, really love it. Sleek wooden shelves will give a modern and chic look to your coffee bar. If you like having your coffee a bit different every day, you can post your ideas on the menu. Decide whether you want to have a café latte or an espresso, and place it accordingly on the menu boards.

2.Organized Coffee Closet

If you’re one of those coffee freaks who have several coffee makers at home and different types of coffee beans for the right mood, you need to keep everything organized. And what can be better than a dedicated coffee closet for that?

This neat little cupboard won’t just house your coffee supplies but also the delicacies that come along with coffee – some sandwiches and cakes. When your body craves for coffee, just go to the coffee closet and get a mouthful, and heartful!

3.Floating Wooden shelves

These shelves are thick and more noticeable for the coffee lover who prefers the wooden look. Just a couple of shelves can house your coffee jars and coffee maker machine. The extra space is for the add-ons that a typical Starbucks lover would want – hazelnut, cinnamon, chocolate, and others.

If you don’t want to invest too much time in your coffee bar and yet want a stylish look, floating shelves are what you need. Put some truffles in a mason jar and you’re ready for a coffee date with your friends.

4.Wrought Iron for a Rugged Look

If the wooden look isn’t your thing, wrought iron will be the best thing to bring out the charm of a corner coffee house.

Multipurpose wrought iron shelves will not just look pretty but will also be durable. Place coffee jars and buckets on the shelf and hang coffee mugs on the hooks below them. If you want to get the maximum use from a small space, use another shelf as a bar and keep your liquor bottles there. Win-win.

5.Summer Theme Coffee Bar

Add multiple summery colors or just pick a unique summer idea like this one with lemons. A lemon wreath on the wall, lemon paintings on the side, lemon lollies, and lemons in a mason jar. If you’re a tea person, this theme will go perfect with your evening tea.

You can also combine lemon and limes for an additional touch of colors. Plus it’s so easy peasy lemon squeezy to implement that it will take just half a day and you’ll have your own summery coffee bar at home.

6.Girly Coffee Bar

All the single ladies, put your hands up. This coffee bar is for the woman who is independent and bold and isn’t afraid to show her soft side. 

Light pink and white is the tone of this coffee bar and it has everything from sweet sugar, yummy cocoa, and a lot of chocolates to go by.

Complete with a number of jars, mugs, and a coffee machine, this coffee station is perfect to bring out your feminine side.

7.A Bold Statement

Make a bold statement by using block letters that spell coffee. And express your love for coffee by displaying a quote on coffee. 

If you think your coffee bar is small and isn’t instantly noticeable, give it a prominent look by making it more noticeable. Nothing says coffee more than, well, coffee. 

Spell it out and place coffee mugs strategically on the shelves so it attracts the attention of visitors and lets them know you’re serious about your java.

8.Christmas Coffee Bar

Christmas is around the corner. When your friends and family come over to celebrate this season, make sure you dress up your coffee bar in the color of the festivities.

’tis the season to be jolly. And a little red and green. Bring home the colors of Father Christmas with this different and beautiful coffee bar. 

It doesn’t even need a lot of hard work. Take your ordinary coffee bar and hang some red mitten and stockings. And wrap some jars with red paper. That’s it – your coffee station has turned into a Christmas coffee station.

9.Flower it up

Let your coffee station be another excuse to have more flowers.

Add colors to an otherwise dull corner by adding flowers. If there’s some place left on the counter after the coffee machine and jars (and there usually is), add a bunch of flowers in an empty milk pot. Putting a flowerpot on one of the shelves can make it even more charming.

You can even add more cream to your coffee bar by having pastel flowery prints on your jars and mugs.

10.Lovey Dovey Valentine

Valentine’s Day or no Valentine’s Day, you can always add colors of love to your coffee bar. A string of hearts can make all the difference between a regular coffee bar and a coffee bar made of love.

Top it up with a heart plushie and Love art piece and your love-cum-coffee station is ready. Ideal for a honeymooning couple or just about anyone who loves falling in love, this coffee bar is sure to catch visitors’ attention.
