7 DIY Coffee Bar Ideas For Your Home

If you’re missing your favorite coffee joint, why not make your own coffee bar at home?

Sure, you’ve probably got a coffeemaker taking up space in the corner of your kitchen, but why not jazz things up a bit and make a space that will make drinking your favorite brew more fun? 

1. Corner coffee bar

Have a tiny corner in your kitchen being wasted? While this one was custom-built, anyone who knows their way around the workshop can modify a pre-fab cabinet to create the perfect brew space.

If you’ve got moderate woodworking skills, you could create this beautiful coffee bar in your own kitchen.

And while you could use reclaimed wood, if that’s not feasible, new lumber can be made to look distressed using stain(s). Check out the tutorial for this build here.
