Most of us love going out for coffee. We adore the smells of our local coffee shop, the cozy atmosphere, and the warming environment. We love that we have options when it comes to what we eat and drink and where we sit. It’s so much better than guzzling down a cup of cheap coffee at home.
But what if you could elevate your home brew? What if you could enjoy that coffee shop experience from the comfort of your own home, any time you want? Here are some of the things that you need to create a cozy coffee station at home.
Utilize Your Space
If you’ve got a large home, it might be easy to add a trendy coffee bar to an unused space. But this isn’t the case for most of us, so you might have to think more carefully about where you can put your coffee station.
If you are short on space, consider adding a sideboard or a small trolly and floating shelves to an unused corner of your home or even to a large hallway.
Stock Up with Coffee Options
If there’s one thing that your home coffee station needs, it’s coffee. Invest in some of your favorites and check out Kopi Luwak Direct for a smooth blend you’ll love. Then, consider syrups and even snacks to replicate the coffee shop experience.
Update Your Equipment
The equipment that you need will depend on the coffee that you enjoy. At the very least, you’ll want a coffee machine and a milk frother.
Invest in the Essentials
You don’t want to put the coffee machine on in the morning and then spend time walking to and from the kitchen for mugs, spoons, and anything else that you need. Make sure you’ve got good storage, with drawers, shelves, or wall-mounted shelves, so that you can store everything that you need in your coffee station, whatever room it’s in.
Create a Theme
You certainly don’t need a theme for your coffee station. You could keep things minimal or stick to the themes that you already have in your home. Or, you could create a trendy Parisian coffee kart or a rustic artisan station.
Consider Seating and Soft Furnishings
Your coffee station doesn’t need its own seating. It’s in your home, after all. But, if you want to be able to enjoy a relaxing afternoon drink, it should be near to comfortable seating. You might also want to add a rug, cushions, throws, and other textiles to the area.
Incorporate a Reading Nook
If you want the ultimate coffee station, and you love curling up with a good book while you enjoy a cup of coffee, why not combine the two? Base your coffee station near a bookshelf, a comfy seat, a useful table, and all of your favorite books, adding both a coffee station and a reading nook to your home.
If you want your coffee station to be unique, get crafty. Create cool signs, add artwork and accessories, and have some fun with color while exploring your creativity. Surround your coffee station with things that you love to create the perfect atmosphere to enjoy your drinks in.
Creating a cozy coffee station at home means that your morning coffee is no longer a rushed kick start to your morning. It’s not something that you grab on your way out of the door and rush down on your commute or way to the bus stop. Suddenly, that morning coffee and every other cup that you enjoy at home is an experience. It’s more than an energy boost. It’s a comforting, warming delight to savor.
