This is a trend we can be energized about! Turn an unused space in a kitchen, basement or other area into a coffee bar area! Sounds like many folks are not only drinking their coffee at home every day, but inviting guests over and enjoying a cup of joe, so why not make it inviting! You can have so much fun creating your own personal Starbucks. Many fans of this idea pinned photos like this one of a repurposed desk area on Pinterest.
