If you have room to spare, make your own elaborate hot-drink haven. Carrie from The Vintage Wren filled this handy shelf with cups and uses labeled glass canisters to store coffee, creamers, cocoa, tea and Splenda. To top a setup like this off, use a dual coffeemaker and hot-water system to appease every guest.
For a more permanent solution, turn a tall, empty cabinet into a built-in beverage station. Shelves can store a coffeemaker, mugs and teacups, while a mini fridge comes in handy for bottled water. The wine cubbies aren't too shabby, either.
A beverage station also can be as simple as 1, 2, 3. Stock a tray with some mugs, hot cocoa mix, candy canes and marshmallows. It will take up very little space yet still do the job.
This well-stocked side table gives guests all they need for their morning coffee break. To prevent an overstuffed kitchen, position one like it near an outlet in the dining room or living room.
Keep cups and the coffeemaker out of sight behind a metal appliance door. It will provide easy access without taking up valuable floor space, and it will help keep your kitchen free of clutter.
Dress up your hot-drink station by adding your own festive touches. Stephanie from Cre8tive Designs uses fake snow, homemade labels, ribbon and mini lights to decorate her apple cider and hot chocolate display. The mini candy cane bowls store extra goodies, like chocolate chips and crushed peppermint.
With its vintage art and perky yellow walls, this eclectic coffee bar hits the spot (and will definitely wake you up in the morning). With the convection oven, it's also a handy breakfast bar.
To enjoy your coffee station all year, pick a small nook in your kitchen and store your mugs, teacups and coffee machine there. If you own pretty dishes, they deserve to be left out in the open.
