If you want to save a couple of bucks or would like to make your morning cup of coffee or tea more fun, creating a coffee and tea station in your Baltimore rental home’s kitchen is just what you need! For most individuals, starting or ending the day with a cup of coffee or tea is a favorite part of their routine. Why not make it a favorite part of your rental home as well? By simply rearranging a few things in your kitchen or establishing a cozy corner with everything you need, you can make a coffee and tea station that will help you turn every cup into an enjoyable, calming moment in your day.
The first step to setting up a coffee and tea station is to identify a perfect spot. In case you have room, and it’s convenient, you could set up your station right on your kitchen counter. Otherwise, if you don’t have extra counter space, try using an inexpensive rolling island, cart, or cabinet. Wherever your coffee and tea station is placed, ensure that it is a space you can dedicate to your station without having to relocate things around. This will make keeping it stocked and ready to go a lot easier.
Gather the Essentials
After you figure out where your coffee and tea station will go, it is important to get all the things you’ll need to make that perfect cup. For coffee lovers, this could contain things like a coffee pot, an espresso machine, or a French press – or even all of them! Tea drinkers will need a teapot, either stovetop or electric. It would be great to have a selection of coffees and teas and everything you’ll need to prepare this delicious drink: mugs or teacups and a way to store them, spoons and stirrers, creamer, milk, lemon, sweeteners, and so forth. Depending on how you enjoy your coffee and tea and how much variety you think you’ll need, you can customize your coffee and tea station to your needs.
While the essentials are, well, essential, think about making your coffee and tea station comfortable and good-looking for the long term. If you’re bored by the same old cup of coffee or tea day by day, think about offering different choices to experiment with at home. New flavors, spices, and add-ins may all bring variation and keep you coming back to your home coffee and tea station for more.
Together with pleasing your sense of taste, it is important to make your coffee and tea station visually appealing as well. Add a plant or some small décor items to provide a finished look to your spot, or let your creativity go free and play with colors, textures, and other elements. This is your place – proceed and personalize it the way you want.
Create Comfortable Seating
Aside from visual elements, it is also essential to add some comfortable seating near your coffee and tea station. You can turn a window seat or chair into your favorite seat in the house with a throw and some decorative pillows. Alternatively, make yourself comfortable on the floor with some oversized floor pillows or a plush rug. Regardless of what type of seating you prefer, your coffee and tea station will be perfect, with a pleasant spot to sit and enjoy your drink of choice.
Once you’ve finished everything you need, you’ll be ready to utilize your home’s coffee and tea station!
