Lighting is important in a nook area. Some nook areas look like an old pantry tucked away is a tiny room just off the kitchen, while others are open to the kitchen. In the tiny rooms, consider light, airy colors, track lighting or an antique chandelier. Also think about adding personal artwork to the space. If it is eastern facing, all the better to catch the morning sunlight, but the added electrical lighting will be nice on the gray and gloomy days. Consider other times of the day this space may be used. Homework time so the kids have a dedicated space to work in while being in close reach of a study-break snack, a reading area away from televisions, a place to draw or color, etc., then pick the appropriate lighting for those other needs.
The last type of seating for the kitchen I would like to discuss is corner breakfast nook benches. The corner nook set will have an L shaped bench that fits against two walls. Instead of separate bench seats like when they are free standing or on either side of a table like a booth, these bench seats are all connected into one large L shaped piece of furniture. Corner nook sets have one advantage over other types of breakfast nook seating and that is that they provide storage. Nooks with storage are nook sets with corner bench seats with storage compartments under the seat or in the high back of the bench. The storage area under the seat can be used for any number of things but most popularly for small appliances and linens. The storage shelf in the back of the bench seat is usually a cabinet with a spice rack or a cabinet for thin items like cookie sheets and cutting boards.
It is easy to build and live in a house; all it takes is construction and voila! You're in a house. Creating a home, though, takes more work and truly is a labor of love to fill a house with comfort and familiarity. Part of this involves creating the perfect kitchen, a room that can fill the house with warm, savory smells and feelings, and part of a perfect kitchen is the perfect breakfast nook. The perfect breakfast nook is a cozy and comfortable place where the family can enjoy starting the day off together over a warm, home-cooked meal. As such, there are a few considerations you can take into account when making the idea breakfast setting for your family. Space: A breakfast nook shouldn't be too large, because then you lose that intimacy for which nooks were created. A good size for a breakfast nook for your average family of four is around six to eight feet wide and at least five to seven feet deep. This way each person has enough room, but you really get that great feeling of family togetherness.
