I really love the coffee station idea, minus the water, just too problematic for plumbing. I can keep mugs and bins of coffee & teabags on shelves above. I like the slide out to make it easier to put water in the coffee maker.
kitchen nook- genius for the wasted space that is usually found on the side of the fridge! I don't think this would fit in the kitchen but maybe a dining room corner would be perfect since we don't have an office.
