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.
If your home is a more modern home with modern furnishings throughout, then you may be wondering how you are ever going to find furniture for your breakfast nook. Most furniture for this room is of a more traditional or country theme and it is sometimes hard to find kitchen nook sets that can fit into a modern kitchen. There are certain features to look for, though, that will help you find the right nook set for your modern living space. The materials of construction, the style of the table and breakfast nook seating, as well as the color schemes can all play a part in making your kitchen furniture look more modern.
There are many styles of dinette sets as well. One popular style, the drop leaf table, is an old favorite and is quite functional in a small space since the leaves can be put up and down as necessary to make a larger table. Often only having two chairs, this style is perfect for an area along a wall and adds country flair to your kitchen. For more country style with a bit more seating, consider a rectangular table with two chairs on one side, chairs on either end and a bench on the fourth side. Pedestal tables with chairs on casters are a good choice for areas with flooring that will allow the casters to roll easily. There are sets available that look like they could be folded up and stashed in the closet and ones with lots of metal and glass for a very modern accent to any small dining area.
