Create a Breakfast Nook

Ideas to Inspire Your Breakfast Nook

When dreaming up your future breakfast nook, think beyond breakfast. A cozy table in the kitchen can create space for moments throughout the day: a place to begin the day with a newspaper and coffee, a place for the kids to do homework while you make dinner, or a setting for an intimate dinner for two. And of course, breakfasts. Whether your style is traditional, modern, or rustic, a breakfast nook can be a beautiful way to add to your kitchen’s usable space.

The Right Table for Your Space

If you have a small space, consider a pedestal table – the lack of table legs makes the space feel roomier. Round tables also work well for tight spaces, as they allow a little extra space to maneuver around them. If you have more room, try to match the shape of the table to the shape of the space. Rectangular spaces work nicely with rectangular tables, and square spaces accommodate a square (or even round) table well.

Flexible Seating

In many homes, the breakfast nook is where the kids gather to do homework while the parents cook. And sometimes, they bring friends. If you host after-school homework buddies or post-slumber party breakfast guests, have a nook that can fit an extra guest or two by using a bench for seating. The low height of the bench will also create a feeling of extra space in your nook.

An Elegant Nook

Breakfast nooks don’t have to be casual. Create an elegant space that offers more intimacy than a dining room table. A pretty round table (we love the many customizations of this version of our Custom Dining Collection) can set the scene for a quiet dinner, and it looks equally beautiful for weekend mornings spent lingering over coffee.

Finishing Touches

And don’t forget finishing pieces! A rug can serve as an anchor that establishes your nook in the kitchen as its own space, and a pendant light can finish off the space nicely.
