I’m so honored to be part of the BHG Live Better Influencer Network where, as a blogger, I’ve received compensation by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart. The opinions stated in Coffee station and storage ideas for small kitchens are my own. For more updates on their products and decor ideas, you can always follow them on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.
In my kitchen there are two areas that are my favorite; the window sill and coffee station. The window sill allows me to place plants inside my house. This area always receives the perfect amount of sun through the day no matter the season. The coffee station is where you’ll find me first thing in the morning. Except for the milk, here I have everything: whole bean coffee, sugars, espresso cups and saucers, etc. Today I’m sharing some coffee station and storage ideas for small kitchens like the one we have.
The kitchen cart
When we first moved here, we gutted the old kitchen and got rid of the entry door to allowed this area to feel more open and ample. Still we needed additional counter space and opted for a kitchen cart. The Better Homes & Gardens Modern Farmhouse Multi-Purpose Cart was ideal because it provided that extra space to set our coffee machine. Still I was left with additional room to place groceries or accessories.
On the bottom part of this Better Homes & Gardens Modern Farmhouse Multi-Purpose Cart (available at Walmart) I placed some metallic baskets to store potatoes, onions and lemons. These Better Homes & Gardens Stacking Wire Baskets are available in two sizes (large and medium) and I stacked both sizes one on top of the other. This system is ideal for getting the best out of this small kitchen.
I also used this Better Homes & Gardens Modern Farmhouse Multi-Purpose Cart to store away my “collection” of chargers. You can see how I used some of them here and here.
Take advantage of the walls
I while back we placed these shelves on the wall above the kitchen cart to have more area for storing. Just recently I found at Walmart these Better Homes & Gardens Glass Bathroom Vanity Apothecary Jar (this one is the small size) and I’m using them for storing sugar. These go perfectly well with my glass jars (also from Walmart) used here for storing rice, coffee and cereal.
This kitchen wouldn’t be complete without a place to write the grocery list (over the blackboard) and a wall clock. This Galvanized Wall Clock from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart is the perfect size for this area and can be easily read because of its large numbers.
Small kitchens have full potential over the walls or by simply adding the right kind of accessory. I was able make the most out of this area by using a kitchen cart. Adding this coffee station created additional storage space without sacrificing the work area of the kitchen itself. Are you struggling with a limited kitchen area? What has been your best storage solution for this area?

I am so in love with your kitchen cart. I have a small kitchen too and think this would be a perfect solution for additional storage space

This is adorable! Where do you get the eucalyptus?
Gloribell LebronJanuary 21, 2018 at 11:12 pm
Thank you so much! The eucalyptus is from Trader Joe’s. Their flowers are always so affordable there.

Love the cart! Did you refinish the top? It looks like the cart from Walmart has a stainless steel top?
Gloribell LebronJuly 12, 2020 at 11:51 am
Hello there! I did not refinish this cart, it came like that. Perhaps if you’re looking at the cart online, they might have changed the model since this is an old post. Thanks for stopping by!
