Have you noticed the addition of the coffee bar in a kitchen? I’ve recently been in to two renovated kitchens here in my little town of Southern Pines that both had a coffee station. A few years ago, I visited a local friend and during a tour of the house, saw a small coffee station upstairs in the hall just off the master, what a retreat.
Instead of just adding the coffee maker to the other countertop appliances and putting the mugs away in the cabinet with the rest of the glasses, it can have a dedicated space all it’s own. It’s a solid way to put an unused area in the kitchen to work. Maybe it’s trading the bar cart in for the coffee bar, maybe you have both.
I’m not sure about the Flavor Flav wall clock but I love that espresso machine and the warm wood of those cabinets.
A traditional coffee station with a pretty tiled backsplash, although there is a lot being stored here, there’s a good composition happening,
An iteration of the barn door, the sliding cabinet door would be a fantastic way to conceal your coffee bar or coffee supplies that maybe aren’t as good-looking as the mugs and shiny stainless espresso machine
My favorite example of the coffee bar is in Heather Bullard’s kitchen. It’s an area with open shelving to the right of that beautiful sub zero. BTW- Heather is a fantastic stylist and her site is chockfull of images that will make you go hmmmm.
Coffee bar elegance, velvety dove gray. The machinery takes center stage here.
Sleek and modern coffee station,
