How To Design A Coffee Nook In Your Kitchen

Whether you enjoy coffee to the point that you can’t live without it or whether it’s just an occasional thing, a coffee station and a cozy coffee nook is something nobody would say no to. It’s small enough to fit in any kitchen and wonderful to have and enjoy, even if it’s just from time to time. But until then there’s the small problem of finding the right place and design for your cozy coffee nook.

The coffee station can be hidden inside your kitchen cupboards. You can have a pull-out cubby for your espresso machine or whatever you prefer to use and all the supplies can be stored in a drawer, either underneath and anywhere in that area. This way you won’t disrupt the overall design and décor of your kitchen.

Hiding your coffee station and all the needed supplies is the preferred option in most cases and this resulted in a variety of design strategies which can be adopted. For example, you can create a special compartment inside your kitchen cupboards just for that.

There can also be a small shelf inside for storing all the cups if you prefer an organized look. And to make things even more elegant and practical, install pocket doors.

The alternative is to display your coffee station. It can be built into your kitchen furniture at the right height so it’s comfortable to use. And if you like sleek and minimalist designs, include a secret pull-out platform on which to rest the coffee cups.

Squeeze your coffee station in between the top cabinet and the countertop and make it look like a continuous design. It would have to be a custom-made design and you’d have to plan this ahead.

    What about the coffee makers that you use those little containers to make the flavors? Is this really upping the cost of the coffee or is it a good deal?
