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. But 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 also add storage under the bench.
  • Use a Bistro Set – If you do have a little corner, a small bistro set can add charm and utility. Most fold easily for storage too when not in use.
  • 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.

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.

Even better, if you decide to sell your home within the next year, these will make your listing that much more appealing than others.
