There comes a time in every mom’s life when they consider swapping out their cocktail bar for a coffee bar...or maybe you have enough space in your house to have both! Regardless, when I became a mom I learned that I had a lot more use for coffee on a daily basis. My Nespresso machine became my life line…and that freshly brewed, frothy cup of coffee was an indulgence. So if you are looking for ideas for small space in your house, this is your sign that a coffee bar is the way to go!

In order to start experimenting with different flavors and types of coffee, you need to first determine a space for a coffee bar. That’s why we created this post to gather the best coffee bar ideas for small spaces. We’ll start by looking at some beautiful ideas for inspo, and then we’ll share our top recommendations for creating your very own coffee bar! (hint: it’s easier than you think)
