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.
Pick fabrics and textures that welcome you to the space. If you have kids, this could be the space they do their homework in. Think about the cushions used and comfort level of the space for more than 15 minutes of sitting time. Add fresh flowers or small pots of plants, natural sunlight depending, to bring in green and freshness to the space. The morning is our chance to wake up on the right side of the bed. Create a warm, welcoming and refreshing space that will leave everyone in the family feeling good and ready to start their day.
Fixtures: Any breakfast nook needs a bay window with a bench fitted with comfortable bench cushions that can be used for lounging and sitting during the breakfast meal. Comfort should be the word of the day when choosing the seating. The table should also be just large enough to hold everyone's food, but not so large that it separates the family. Remember, togetherness is the idea. Lighting: A perfect nook ideally has a window on one side, to let in that glorious morning light from a sunrise. There is no better way to eat breakfast than with your loved ones, bathed in the warm rays of the sun to shake off that early morning chill.
