Color Coordinate With Style

This beverage station includes essentials for a weekend brunch or an after-dinner dessert. Place mugs on a two-tier tray to save counter space. Keep in mind, not all of the mugs have to match – as long as they are the same color scheme, your display will look chic and tidy.

Pull-Out Cabinet Keeps It Neat

Your coffee maker doesn't need to camp out on the countertop. Install a slide-out tray in a counter-level cabinet to set up a coffee station that can be hidden away after everyone is sufficiently caffeinated.

Irish Coffee, Anyone?

If you can fit your coffee maker on your cocktail bar, why not combine your beverage options? Try open shelving to clearly display glassware, mugs, liquor and mixers.

High Style and High Tech

Having a built-in coffee maker with a drawer to hide your mugs away from view is a great way to make your kitchen look sophisticated and uncluttered.

Master Coffee Station

Who says the coffee station has to be in the kitchen? This master bathroom has a handy coffee station set up on the vanity table. Use trays to hold coffee fixings and mugs so items stay corraled. The tray also makes it easier when you have to go to the kitchen to restock.

Beverage Station With Espresso Machine

A tall cabinet cleverly hides a deluxe coffee and tea station, including an espresso machine connected to plumbing (no need to venture away for water). Sliding cabinet doors reveal and hide the coffee bar as needed.

Practical and Pretty

Not every coffee station has to be super fancy. Sometimes keeping it simple is best. Using a multi-tiered plate stand for food or coffee-related items can dress up any coffee nook.

Coffee Corner

A semi-automatic espresso machine tucked into a corner of the kitchen makes it easy to create frothy coffeehouse-style drinks without having to leave the comfort of your home. An antique metal-enamel tray next to the coffee maker holds sugar, flavorings and mugs. The tray gives everything a place without making the counter look cluttered.

Decor to Match the Beverage
