When it comes to farmhouse decor ideas, there are always the standards. White shiplap in the bathroom. A vintage-inspired sign hanging in the kitchen. Bedroom furniture in breezy neutrals and antique details. While these visuals are all lovely, have you considered adding a little country flair to your morning caffeine fix with farmhouse coffee bar ideas?
If your coffee maker is a million miles from your java essentials and you always seem to be running out of mugs, create a dedicated coffee bar where all of your must-haves can live in one place — and dress it up in delightful farmhouse accents. Think ceramic mugs, vintage accents, hints of greenery, and a few other pieces of decor that are full of country charm.
Here are seven farmhouse coffee bar ideas so you can start your day in the sweetest way possible.
1. Go all in with vintage pieces of decor.
Your vintage treasures can always rest on a mantel or punch up a bookshelf, but what about your coffee station? Take a page from this farmhouse coffee bar created by Liz Marie of Liz Marie Blog. A chippy cabinet holds the basics for your morning cup of joe as well as a few storied finds, like a pair of well-loved briefcases and a wire locker basket.

2. Include farmhouse-friendly storage.
If you're a true coffee fanatic, your farmhouse coffee bar idea will need plenty of space to stash away must-haves, but that doesn't mean that your storage can't have country flair, too. Think white cabinets and open wood shelving, with shiplap serving as the ultimate backdrop. It's a look that Alma of Almafied nailed in her home's light and bright java station.

3. Make it functional.
Sure, you can make a farmhouse coffee bar look pretty, but is it practical? Bring together the best of both worlds with a setup that looks cute and has functional pieces within reach. That's the approach Kristin of Live Simply took when she put together this farmhouse coffee bar, complete with mugs, baskets of Mason jars, and small appliances.
4. Weave in decorative touches.
Farmhouse decor ideas don't need to be reserved just for the main living spaces in your home — give your coffee bar some rustic love as well. For instance, Lauren of Bless'er House took a thrifted cabinet — she used white wax to give it some visual interest — and turned it into a true farmhouse coffee bar with the help of classic dinnerware, a darling cake stand, and a hint of greenery.
5. Use a dresser.
It turns out that a dresser easily lends itself to farmhouse coffee bar ideas. It has instant storage, and if it's vintage or traditional, it will anchor the country vibe of your space. Tricia of Simplicity on the South used a painted navy blue dresser to the set the scene for her coffee bar.

6. Install white subway tile.
You can't really ever go wrong with subway tile, and that's especially true in the case of farmhouse coffee bar ideas. In their kitchen, Mary and Tim of 17 Apart set aside a section just for their espresso station, topped off with modern details like a geometric vase, a marble shelf, and of course, trend-proof white subway tile.
7. Work with a small space.
Even if you only have a small corner to work with, you can still create the farmhouse coffee bar you've been dreaming of. Simply stick to a small piece of furniture for storage, match the length of your open shelving with the width of your wall, and weave in farmhouse decor ideas like mini signage and glass jars, a look that Carla of Oak Hill Farms perfected in her home.
