Small, Neutral Sitting Room with Blue Accents
To create a separate living space for the homeowners, designers used floor rugs to define the boundaries of the sitting room. In this smaller space, a stylish sofa and wingback chairs provide seating, while a coffee table and end table give guests somewhere to set plate and cups. To add warmth to the space, designers used rich wood trim and added a fireplace to give off heat on cool nights. For pops of color and a touch of personality, blue artwork was added to the space.
By designating dead space below wall cabinets as coffee cup storage, Sarah and John were able to free up two shelves that now keep baby feeding supplies neatly organized. The hanging coffee cup rack was installed directly into the bottom of the cabinets with screws; the rack pulls out and slides forward keeping cups within easy reach.
For my coffee cups, the first hole is 2" from the top, the middle hole at 11", and the bottom hole at 20" from the top. If you have larger or taller coffee cups, you may want to measure and mark your own holes to accommodate your cups so that they hang freely, without bumping into the next row.
Homemade Coffee FLavored Cupcakes in Holiday To-Go Cups
Bake coffee-flavored cupcakes in paper to-go cups then top with rich homemade frosting and dash of nutmeg, cinnamon or sprinkles for a morning pick-me-up lookalike that is sure to hit the spot any time of the day. Dress them up with a ribbon to spread some holiday cheer.
A space-saving, easy-to-use single serve coffee maker with a gold finish in the kitchen delivers fresh brewed, delicious coffee in minutes. The butler’s pantry also includes a special edition single serve coffee, latte and cappuccino maker that allows you to brew up coffeehouse favorites for your family and friends.
The coffee center includes a space-saving single serve coffee maker, so you can brew a delicious and fresh cup of coffee white getting ready in the morning. A round wood tray with a selection of coffee pods offers the chance to choose your favorite flavor from leading coffee brands.
A small niche is incorporated into the cabinetry in this kitchen to create a handy coffee station. A microwave is conveniently located above the coffee station for heating the occasional cup of lukewarm joe.
You’ve seen them in magazines and on TV, no doubt — built-in coffee bars complete with a sink, fridge and lighted shelving, like this one that Lisa Robazza designed “to utilize an awkward space under a stair in a small kitchen for a client who entertains often.” All those pricey perks are nice, for sure, but you can get the same effect for free. Just reorganize a corner of your kitchen (ideally a spot near your sink) so that all your coffee-making supplies are together: The machine on the counter, mugs or cups in a cabinet above, and filters, pods or grounds in a drawer underneath.
