Express Espresso at Home

When we think about the functionality of the kitchens in our homes, we think about the most rushed or high-use times, and if there are configurations or processes that could be simplified to make our lives easier.  Morning definitely qualifies as one of those times.  Not only is it a busy time of the day, but people are generally less alert and less prepared to make lots of decisions. With this in mind, one area that can start the day off in the right direction is an organized coffee center.  This can mean something as simple as locating all the coffee supplies within arm’s reach of each other, or it can mean thoughtfully considering integrated drawer and cabinet storage solutions.

Dura Supreme has some great beverage center ideas to help you start your day off right. Locating coffee/tea making supplies all in one place is key. This can be achieved within a Wall Appliance Cabinet with shelving.

If you have a nearby drawer, it would be very easy to stock that with coffee pods, tea, sugar, etc. using our various drawer organization options to fit your specific needs. We even offer adjustable drawer partitions so that you and your designer can create the perfect beverage organizational system for you.

Another option is to plumb water to the coffee unit, and of course have a power supply within the cabinetry to reduce clutter.

If you want to go a step further, there are great built in espresso/coffee systems that combine seamlessly with Dura Supreme cabinetry as well.

With all of the customization options available, there is no reason why, with a little bit of forethought and planning, the perfect morning beverage station cannot be created.  It can be achieved in framed or frameless cabinetry, within a large gourmet kitchen or a small starter kitchen, and within many different price points. You can't control every part of your day, but you can have control over how you start it!
