Designing A Coffee Bar For Your Kitchen
There are several ways to designing a coffee bar for your kitchen. First, establish a system for displaying mugs by using an inexpensive bar and hook system. Hold the kitchen coffee bar hardware up to the wall at eye level, and check that everything is level. Mark right on the wall by putting your pencil tip through the holes in the hardware, and draw circles to match the opening. Next, use a power drill to drill holes in the wall. Drill into at least one stud if you are in an area that experiences seismic events. Use toggle bolts if you’re drilling just into drywall. Finish by screwing the hardware that came with the bar system through the supports and into the wall. Attach the rod to the supports using the accompanying bolts, loop the metal hooks onto the rod and then hang mugs onto the hooks. Attach two 24-inch-long pieces of pre-cut, pre-painted hobby wood one-by-fours together using screws and two L-brackets. Before putting the L-brackets in place on the wall, mark and drill your holes on the back and underside of the pieces of wood.
Then, measure 12 inches down from the mug rod display on the wall and mark two level holes, about 12 inches away from one another. Drill the two holes, first in the drywall and then in the top half of the L-shaped shelf. Then attach the shelf to the wall with heavy-duty drywall screws. Finish by adding coffee pods to the shelf to keep them within easy reach. Style the kitchen coffee bar bookshelf below with all of the necessary accessories, things like a coffee maker, extra coffee grounds or beans, specialty mugs, tea bags, sugar dishes and coffee stirrers or spoons.
