The Origin of Home Coffee Bars
Around 2013, the home coffee bar trend took off, turning kitchens into comfortable retreats. But coffee aficionados are drawn to this trend since it’s more than just a fashion statement; it’s a lifestyle that continues to captivate coffee lovers.

Home Coffee Bar Trend Still Growing
In the dynamic world of coffee culture, trends are like whispers from barista to barista, and I’ve got the inside scoop. Here are the hottest searches shaping your at-home coffee experience:
Homeowners are getting creative, carving out chic coffee nooks in their kitchens. Forget the traditional bar cart; Pinterest predicts a shift to at-home coffee stations for Boomers and Gen Xers in 2024.
As the love for at-home coffee bars skyrockets, so does the desire for exquisite details. Picture this: a staggering 1,125% increase in searches for “Coffee Bar Styling.” This isn’t just about functionality but crafting an Instagram-worthy coffee haven.

Essential Items for a Well-Designed Coffee Station:
Upgrade to Professional
Elevate your brew with a professional-grade coffee maker, and here’s the game-changer – opt for a plumbed machine. Enjoy a continuous water supply without the hassle of constant refilling. It’s our own secret weapon at our home. Some days, the coffee is brewing until about 5:00 (when it’s time to switch to a cocktail). On those days, it’s so convenient to have a plumbed machine. Ours is the Keurig commercial plumbed coffee machine for a small office.
Designer tip: When we renovated I made sure to have the plumbing and electrical outlet in the middle of this space so the machine would hide them.
Style It Up
Now, let’s talk interior design. Infuse your coffee bar with charm and blend in some pretty decor made of metal, crystal, ceramic, whatever will make it Yours. Be sure to add art if you have room for it. Embrace the “cafe chalkboard” aesthetic and consider unique “coffee bar styling” elements. Remember, it’s not just a corner; it’s your canvas. You can go modern, traditional, coastal, zen…what’s your “flavor”?
The coffee artwork, the designer ceramics (thank you, Tatiana!), the shell spoon, the shell bowl, the large beads – all these accessories style up this coffee bar beautifully.
I’m a 2 cuppa in the morning, then in the afternoon I switch to iced coffee (it’s those Rhode Island roots!) with flavors. I’m loving Jordan’s Skinny Mixes.
The Budget-Friendly Option
It’s time to reconsider your daily coffee indulgence as retail shop expenses steadily increase. These days, I’d pay about $7 for a venti flavored latte at Starbucks. Here’s a money-saving suggestion: for the same price, get a massive bottle of flavored syrup that will last for months. You will not only save money, but you will also be able to tailor your brew perfectly.
