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.
Due to their inherent functionality, dinette sets are available for all sorts of meal services. They are designed and are utilized for simple or quick breakfast service, or they can be more elaborate to accommodate large dinner parties and formal dining. The more popular styles of dinette set include contemporary designs that are fashioned from wood or steel. Wood also contributes to a country style and feeling. Retro styles and the 1950's are making a comeback as well, so dinette sets can be found in stainless steel or chrome models and are gaining popularity. They can also feature glass tabletops, either frosted, etched, or regular style glass. If space is limited, a dinette set can be found to accommodate; benches and side tables are often the choice to fill any small breakfast nook or kitchen corner in these sorts of space situations.
If you want to move up in the world, dinette sets featuring counter height tables and stools may be just what you're looking for. Performing double service, these tables can be used to add extra counter space in a small kitchen allowing the cook to create a gourmet meal in a tiny work space. Reset for eating, meals can then easily be served in the same area. Everyone will wonder how she does it! A trip to your local dining room furniture store will surely be an eye opener as you'll see aisle after aisle of functional and stylish dinette sets, suitable for almost any kitchen, breakfast nook or small porch. Big on attitude yet small in stature, they are designed to fit into a small area and yet perform like a champ.
