Create a Coffee Corner With Mug Holder

2 Materials
30 Minutes

How to create a stylish coffee and tea area with Just 2 pictures ledges and wall hooks.

a cup of tea or coffee is the first thing we get when we wake up in the morning so why not make that task easier by having everything in one place?

This was the finished area. I’m so happy with how it turned out! And it only took me a few minutes and just the price of the 2 shelves and the hooks.

(The kettle is to the left hand side of the hob. I am considering moving it to under here and swapping it with the cookie jar)

The area looked like this before. It was quite cluttered with all the storage items being on the worktop together

I cleaned down the wall ready for the area to be started

These are the only tools you will need. Screwdriver, level and a hammer. A measuring tape does come in handy too of course

I got 2 picture ledges and placed the top one first so it was level with the oven hood. I drilled holes in the wall once I measured where the shelves were going and hammered in the wall plugs. Then I screwed the shelf in place

The bottom shelf lined up with the end of the worktop.

i measured the rough size of a mug to fit underneath to get the height from the worktop upwards

I just used a hook set that I got from a hardware store. In an ideal world I would’ve got one that was single hooks instead of double. These just screwed into the wall with the raw plugs again

I then placed all my accessories until I was happy with the layout

This video shows my shelf styling steps if anyone is interested

This has honestly created so much more worktop space as everything sat on here before. So not only is it pretty, it’s practical too.
