Creating a Simple Coffee Station with Denby

Posted on 19th May 2019

If you’re anything like me, then you’ll agree, coffee makes the world go round. We are big coffee drinkers in my house hold… bean to cup, filter, instant, decaf… doesn’t matter, just give us the coffee. So it's not surprising that we felt it more than necessary to create ourselves a little coffee station in the kitchen, to house our ever growing coffee paraphernalia. After all, when you're tired and bleary eyed in the morning, this all needs to be within easy access! Here are 3 simple steps you can follow to create yourself a stylish coffee station too.

Step 1: Choose a sturdy shelf

Coffee stations are designed to be on display and to create a bit of a feature, so find yourself a good quality shelf or unit to use as the main body of your coffee station. I opted for a solid oak, walnut stained floating shelf from Traditional Beams. If you’re having a shelf, remember it needs to be pretty solid to support the weight of everything you’re putting on it, especially if it's a floating one like mine! I went for just one shelf, but you could also have multiple shelves if you’ve got lots of items to put on them or you want to make it a bigger feature. Try and chose something contrasting to the items you’re going to be putting on it, to make it stand out.

Step 2: Get yourself a beautiful coffee set

The coffee station is a stylish but functional display, and it’s going to be out in the open so you want it to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. No one wants to walk into the kitchen and see your nans 100 year old mismatched chipped bone china that clashes with your ultra modern sleek kitchen. I chose the stunning Halo Brew coffee range from Denby, which included a cafetière, 2 coffee cups and saucers, a sugar pot and a milk jug. Although I have a bean to cup coffee machine, I love the option of a cafetière too for when we have guests over, or for lazy Sunday mornings in the sun when you want to take the coffee pot outside for some alfresco breakfast. The set has the most beautiful pattern on it, it almost looks dip dyed, and it is the perfect colour to match my dining room. Denby have lots of different sets, so have a little look through their range to find the perfect set for you.

Step 3: Add the faff (also known as accessories)

Style the coffee station up with pretty accessories (or faff as I tend to call it), some functional and some display. For mine I’ve opted for glass jars from Ikea to store the coffee beans and sugar, and a faux trailing plant, also from Ikea. The key to creating the perfect ‘shelfie’ is variation in height, so make sure you consider this when deciding how to style your shelf. Place low items next to the tall ones, place some slightly forward and some back, and use things like the trailing plant to add depth below the shelf line too, connecting it to the items underneath. 

And there you have it, your very own styled coffee station. This really is a great way to add decor to your kitchen, or to store items out on display if you’re lacking for cupboard space, or simply because you want to show off your beautiful coffee set.
