I’m thinking of taking my coffee obsession to the next level, with one of these cool coffee bar carts. Kind of like bar carts, only…for coffee.
I’m seeing them absolutely everywhere, and I love the idea of a dedicated space for my coffee supplies — but one that’s easily moveable so that it can be stashed in the kitchen for breakfast, or rolled into the living room if we’re having friends over. I’m even seeing them in bedrooms, B&B style, in case you just can’t make it to the kitchen for coffee — before you have your coffee.
Admittedly, coffee before I even get out of bed is the best.
A simple minimalist coffee bar cart
I’m smitten with this simple, minimalist DIY coffee bar cart at Angela Marie Made. She pulled it together all for under $50, which is impressive! But here’s the thing…she built the cart herself, which is even more impressive.
She has links to everything she used to put this coffee bar car together, from that cute mug stand to the print on the wall, plus a full tutorial on how to build the cart if you’re up for the challenge, and handy with a table saw and drill. Bonus: Angela shows you how to transform it into a bar cart too, for your adults-only parties.
An industrial chic coffee bar cart
This industrial chic coffee cart spotted at 204 Park is just right for someone with minimalist sensibilities. With that cool gold wire cube to hold coffee pods if you’re a Nespresso fan, and small cream and sugar on the side, it’s only what you need. And that letter board is perfection.
A swanky deco coffee bar cart
Gah! This deco style round bar cart I saw at Gypsy Tan is amazing, and I expected it to be from some super-chic expensive shop. But? It’s from Home Depot! I was so inspired, I looked around and found similar offerings like this Aden Lane art deco round bar cart at Target in both gold and black, and then — are you ready? — a Modish round bar cart with mirrored shelves on Houzz for under $100!
Definitely click Gypsy Tan’s post for wonderful tips on how she styled her bar cart for more than just coffee so it blends into the decor more like an occasional shelf. She has links to all her cute items too. Though to make mine more practical, I’d probably cut out a plant or two, so there’s more room for coffee supplies beyond the coffee maker.
A shabby chic upcycled coffee bar cart
This vintage hospital cart that Hilary and Kyle Maloney turned into a coffee bar cart, featured in their home tour on Design*Sponge is so smart. As someone who likes cream in my coffee, I’d scour the flea markets to find something similar, and I’d love it if I could hide a small dorm fridge in the lower compartment. Or, you could store any of your less display-worthy supplies in that cabinet from mugs to spoons to bottles of Torani flavored syrups. Mmmm.
A modern IKEA hack coffee bar cart
This chic, modern, tastefully simple coffee bar cart at Creating with KLC is actually a cool IKEA hack. It requires just three materials including the cart, and is nearly unrecognizable from the original utility cart that she purchased. The coffee car cart’s small footprint means it can fit pretty much anywhere in your home — from the kitchen to the bedroom to a small corner of the dining room. Or, you can just roll it around with you all day long and keep the coffee flowing.
