Breakfast nooks have been a popular feature in kitchens for decades. This small and cozy style of space is meant to seat a couple of people who are looking to enjoy tea or sip on coffee and to start the day in a peacefully calm way.
Even if you only have a small corner to work with, you can still create a wonderful little breakfast nook in your kitchen. Here are some tips to get you started!
Install a bench
If you don’t have enough room for a table as well as chairs, consider installing a bench instead. With this type of built-in seating, you’ll have room for a small table as well as seating so that you can comfortably enjoy your coffee or your tea in the morning.
Use a bistro set
You can also consider purchasing a small, commercially available bistro set. They come in both indoor and outdoor styles. Also, if you opt for an outdoor bistro set, you can fold it up and store it elsewhere if you need to utilize the nook space for other purposes throughout the day.
Utilize outdoor space
Do you have an outdoor patio or deck that is directly outside of your kitchen area? If so, why not make use of that outdoor space? Sitting outside on a warm morning is a perfect way to start your day.
Set the nook apart
You can be as creative as you want to be when designing your new breakfast nook. Many people choose to differentiate the nook from the rest of their home by incorporating a unique design or adding a personalized element to the space. For example, placing wallpaper on the walls by your new nook can help set it apart from the rest of your kitchen space.
