15 jet-fuelled DIY home coffee bar ideas
1. Miniature DIY coffee station
You don’t need a lot of space to make an effective home coffee bar. A small sideboard, a single shelf, or a kitchen corner can all be transformed.
Lauren Saylor has created the sweetest DIY coffee station which features her espresso machine and some syrups. She’s utilised the space brilliantly by stacking and using a sideboard in her dining room.
2. Green coffee bar
Plants make everything better! This gorgeously green coffee bar by Shoe Laces features all the essentials. The greenery brings a natural element to the machinery without taking up too much space.
Use reusable coffee filters and fairtrade coffee beans for a truly eco-friendly station. DIY home coffee bar ideas that fuel you and protect the planet are a win-win!
3. Hanging coffee bar
Save countertop space by turning your shelves into a DIY coffee bar. This antique coffee station by Hollway Homestead maximises this tiny shelving unit wonderfully.
Everything has a place, even her flask and vintage coffee grinder. The hanging mug hooks are also a great way of saving space and giving a cottagecore vibe to the unit.
4. Minimalist coffee station
Your DIY home coffee bar is about one thing – the caffeine! If you like a more minimalist feel in your home then you’ll love this paired back station.
Neutral colours and floating shelves keep this bar clutter-free and clean. The coffee machine is the focal point and the caffeine is the star of the show.
5. Take inspiration from your local shop
Recreate the feeling of stepping into your favourite coffee shop at home. The best DIY home coffee bars are often inspired by coffee shops from around the world.
This gorgeous dark wood bar uses wood, tiled signs, and traditional equipment to give a professional, put-together look. Created by My Modern Craft, it pays homage to trendy London coffee spots only the coolest people know about.
6. Simple coffee bar station ideas
You don’t need lots of gadgets and toppings to make a good home coffee bar station. Just grab your machine and favourite syrups and ta-dah! You’ve got yourself a DIY coffee station.
The great thing about a simple station (like Quinns Homemade Crafts’ one) is you can move it around. Bring it into the dining room or even the bedroom if you need a morning pick-up.

7. Fall coffee bar station ideas
Autumnal walks aren’t quite the same without a brew. They keep you warm and make those dark mornings more bearable. Miss Yazz’s fantastic Fall coffee bar station celebrates the season perfectly.
The leafy bunting and mini pumpkin give a subtle nod to the season. Of course, the DIY coffee bar station wouldn’t be complete without some pumpkin-spiced syrups!
8. Farmhouse-style coffee bar
If you’re a fan of the vintage/farmhouse aesthetic then model your home coffee bar on Ivette Hernandez’s one. The wooden slab combined with the lace doilies really bring out the farmhouse feel.
To give an even more country feel, use repurposed mason jars for storage. You could also upcycle milk canisters into coffee bean holders.
9. Eclectic DIY coffee bar ideas
There are no rules! You can make your home coffee bar as random and playful as you like. Opt for a more eclectic look, by mixing and matching colourful mugs, adding unique signs, and playing with height.
We love how Faustine 2012 has used its coffee station to display its Starbucks travel mugs. The bar looks super fun as well as practical.
10. Festive coffee bar station ideas
Give your DIY home coffee bar a festive makeover just like Melissa Galloway has. Christmas mugs, festive syrup flavours, and handmade decorations easily transform your station into a winter wonderland.
Add fairy lights for a quick glow. Or hang Christmas garlands along your cupboards. You don’t need to change the basics of your set-up for Christmas, just add holiday accessories instead!
11. Fully functional home coffee bar
Ok, this DIY home coffee bar is dreamy. It’s the perfect mix between functional and beautiful. Designed by Ashley Miller, this DIY coffee station has huge amounts of storage (cupboards, drawers, and shelves) as well as plenty of room for equipment.
The addition of a tiny sink and dishwasher means you can make and clean up after yourself in one space. We love how it’s inbuilt into the wall, giving the illusion of a new room. Ideal for those who don’t have room in the kitchen for their coffee.
12. Professional DIY home coffee bar
For those of you who take coffee very seriously, you’ll love Bert of Coffee’s set-up. Complete with every machine and gadget available, this home coffee bar shows the world just how much you love the stuff.
The under-shelf lighting gives it a professional feel. The black steel mini shelf and hooks add extra space without the bar looking messy. It reminds us of hipster coffee joints in New York!
13. Coffee bar cupboards!
Now, this is the coffee bar for small homeowners. Lily Ann Cabinets have created these clever cupboards which feature a pull-out coffee station. It’s a great way of including your station within your kitchen without taking up extra room. Plus you can store all your mugs right alongside your coffee bar.
14. Pastel home coffee bar ideas
Coffee may be black but your station doesn't have to be! This colourful coffee bar is by At A Girl Says and makes lovely spring decor. The cake stand and tray give it a homely feel and the tulips tie all the colours together. The pastel theme would be brilliant for lighting up a dark corner of your home.
15. DIY coffee bar cart
No space? No problem. Bar carts make fantastic DIY coffee bar stations. They’re portable, small, and easy to place next to your nearest empty socket. We love the rustic feel of Tabitha Blue’s nifty coffee cart.
Fill your cart with mugs, equipment, and extras. You could dedicate each level of your bar cart to a coffee-making step. Make the bottom mugs and spoons. The middle shelf powders and syrups. The top of your machine, pods, and toppings.
