20 Gorgeous Breakfast Nook Ideas for Your Kitchen

Your kitchen is the most used room in the home; the designated room for eating, visiting, entertaining, paying bills, kids’ homework, maybe some crafts, and much more. You want it to look great, as well as be functional for what you need it to. Some kitchens are small, while others are big, and some have cozy little kitchen nooks in them that add to the functionality and design of the room. Depending on how your kitchen nook is set in your kitchen, and what the architectural design is, you can set up your breakfast nook to fit your style and taste, and make it a gorgeous cozy, intimate corner by following some of these tips.

Windows 

A lot of breakfast nooks are set among windows which can really lighten and brighten the area. If windows are a part of your breakfasts nook, this makes it even more inviting to sit and grab a meal, a cup of coffee, read the paper, or have a piece of pie with a friend. Use your windows to enhance the nook by hanging elegant window treatments that show-off the window(s). A banquette is a great way to add plenty of seating for your kitchen, and can be a great way to add extra storage, too, if you design our banquette to be storage units with lift-and-store units. Matching seat cushions to your window treatment fabric, or use brightly colored coordinating materials to give your breakfast nook a sunshiny appeal.

Size and shape

Not all breakfast nooks are designed in a perfect shape or are the perfect size, but you can still get the most out of your breakfast nook by the pieces of furniture you choose. For small circular shaped breakfast nooks, a small round table will fit better than a square table, or over-sized round table. Consider lining the curvature of a back wall of the nook with a banquette and use a chair or two for seating on the outer end of the table. Scale your furniture to the size of thee space or overcrowding your breakfast nook will quickly make it cramped and uncomfortable to eat or spend time with friends and loved ones.

Lighting

Having the perfect amount of light is important for your breakfast nook. You want a combination of beauty, ambience and functionality with your lighting. One way to create the perfect lighting atmosphere in your nook is with a chandelier. Chandeliers can create an elegant appeal or casual, depending on the type of chandelier you choose. You can find a chandelier in any size, shape and décor design, from modern, to rustic, shabby chic, and classic. When choosing a chandelier, choose one that sis scaled to size for your space. Too large, and your breakfast nook will look awkward and overcrowded. Too small of a chandelier for your space and it can look swallowed-up and awkward as well. For added lighting, wall sconces or lamps can give you more lighting if you have the space for either.

Floor coverings

If your table looks bare and you need floor accents, try adding a beautiful, decorative area rug under your table to give your floor and nook more character, comfort, and tie your decorative design together.
