These 5 Tiled Coffee Bars Are Perfectly Cozy for Fall

Any coffee enthusiast can tell you about the joys of making a morning cup of joe and the importance of a routine: grinding and brewing beans, kick-starting the day with a jolt of caffeine. As important as making a warm cup of coffee is, it’s often just as meaningful to enjoy it in a room that centers you for the day ahead.

Though some might enjoy taking their first cup of coffee in a cafe, inspired by the movement and chatter from those around them, others drink from their coffee pots at home. Here are some kitchen designs and breakfast nooks that inspire us to take a dose of caffeine from the comfort of an in-house coffee bar, surrounded by the things you love and a beautiful tile design.

 

1. Bright breakfast nook

The owner of this beautiful coffee bar, Jaci Daily, starts every single one of her mornings right here. Around 6:15, she begins brewing her cup of coffee, enjoying her quiet time before her kids get up for the day.

She refreshed this breakfast nook using our 4×4 Natural White Zellige tiles for the backsplash. The way our Zellige tile reflects the morning light brings out the kitchen’s brightness and illuminates accessories around the bar: cozy coffee mugs, ceramic vases, artistic prints, and lush houseplants for a touch of life.

We love how this natural white tile looks with the coffee bar’s neutral accessories and countertops. The unfinished white oak shelves by Shelfology are dark enough wood to make the white pop without dimming this bright space.

 

2. Sophisticated kitchen

Use our Nola Black cement tile to create an intricate, geometric pattern as a backdrop while you make your morning cup of coffee. Designed by LL Design Co. and carried out by Keynote Custom Builders, this kitchen’s coffee bar stands out against the natural wood tones of the table tops, floors, and chairs yet complements the surrounding black inset shaker cabinet doors and recessed upper storage.

The cement tiles pop behind the white oak floating shelves, and the backsplash is free of outlets to keep with the streamlined sophistication of the rest of the kitchen. The coffee machine plugs into an outlet strip beneath the shelving instead and keeps the space sleek.

 

3. Thick grout

When considering Zellige tile, you can install it with a small grout line, called a butt joint, or a thicker one that gives the space a more cubic look. The latter is what the owners of this kitchen chose to use.

This coffee bar, designed by the owners of The Market Beautiful, installed our 4×4 Natural White Zellige tile themselves. The risk they took to implement thick grout lines for their first time tiling certainly paid off. The Zellige tile and Polyblend sanded grout match well with the wooden sliding door and cubby, reused from old flooring that the owners’ kept. They haven’t yet installed the coffee machine, but it will have a gorgeous home in this tiled bar.

 

4. Star-crossed alcove

This wet bar, intended for caffeinated and alcoholic drinks, has an arched alcove in the corner of the kitchen all to itself. Interior designer Hagit Taylor used our black-and-white Star and Cross cement tile as the bar’s focal point.

While the cement tile perfectly matches the cabinets and countertop below, it also beautifully contrasts with the light-wood floating shelves, their golden accessories, and sconce lighting.

 

5. Mini bar

Last but certainly not least, we adore this tiny coffee bar using our Maya White cement tile. Depending on how you install this angular tile, it can create sharp lines or a maze-like pattern. In this mini bar, the top wooden floating shelf displays nighttime drink ingredients, while the one below holds the cups you’ll need the morning after for a pick-me-up.
