Creating a Cozy Breakfast Nook

Breakfast nooks used to be staples in the average kitchen. Before the advent of the eat-in, center islands, or great room designs, homeowners loved sitting down with their first cup of coffee in the kitchen. Often this was in the breakfast nook; a small space carved out of the kitchen where the family could enjoy a casual meal or break.


Recently, floorplans have considered this lifestyle element by incorporating the kitchen into the general living area, but not all homes have the space for this. A kitchen nook does not need to take up a lot of space. Even if you have only a small area to work with, you can create a lovely little space to enjoy the morning.


·              Install a Bench If you don’t have enough room for a table and chairs, consider installing a bench. A small built-in seat in a window or corner can be a great place to relax. Perhaps you could even add storage under the bench. We can all use a little more storage!


·              Use a Bistro Set – If you do have a little corner, a small bistro set can add charm and utility. Think French Café. What a nice way to enjoy that first cup of coffee.


·              Head Outside – No one says the breakfast nook has to be in the kitchen. If you have a patio or deck nearby, breakfast in the sun is a lovely way to start the day. For those of us up north, savor the 3 seasons we can enjoy breakfast on the deck.


Finally, however you create the space, use your décor to emphasize the area. A cozy throw pillow on the bench or quaint tablecloth and flowers will make a huge difference and add interest to even the smallest kitchen.
