This DIY corner coffee bar build includes base cabinets, a wine fridge surroung, floating shelves, backsplash and more.
We had an empty corner in our kitchen that connected the living room and the dining room to the kitchen.
As an open concept space, this corner felt unnecessary and like it wasn’t really a part of any of the spaces. I envisioned a corner coffee and wine bar here that felt like a part of the existing kitchen, increasing it’s square footage and creating a better transition between spaces.
To create this, I needed to match the cabinetry and countertop to the existing kitchen, but like most of my projects, on a budget!
Having a contractor come in and build this would have cost thousands, I was able to make a DIY corner coffee bar that was hundreds instead, and looks like it was always a part of my kitchen!
There were many steps to achieving this look and design, and I’ll break each component down with in depth tutorials for you. As is the case with more of my DIY woodworking builds, I have never built an area of a kitchen before! I’m hoping I can inspire you to just pick up a tool and give something like this a try too.
DIY Corner Coffee Bar Build
Creating this corner cabinetry was the literal base of this project. My converting a base cabinet I got off of Facebook Marketplace into a blind corner, I was able to maximize all of the space in this small area.
Adding a cabinet surround to the mini fridge helps all of the cabinetry and appliances look like they belong in this space.
