Kitchen nook is extremely utilitarian furniture that forms small cozy area off or near kitchen where you can sit together with family and friends for having breakfast or discussion over a cup of coffee. It is the focal point for family and friends to gather with whom you can share a snack or meal in relative comfort and children can also play board games or study on the kitchen breakfast nook. The main feature of breakfast nook is that it can be arranged in any style of kitchen wherein you can create a cozy seating of an eat-in kitchen and it also does not interrupt the kitchen's working triangle. The arrangement of your kitchen nook with table, chairs or benches can create an ambiance of eating out at an exclusive dining establishment. It is easily accessible in the kitchen itself and gives your kitchen design a more warm and personal touch.
Generally thought to be comprised of a small table and either two or four chairs, dinette sets are made to fit into a small kitchen or breakfast nook. Suitable for a quick lunch or breakfast for two to four people, they are very functional where space is at a premium. When thinking of dinette sets, your mind may immediately go to the style of dining table popular in the 50's and 60's. These are still out there and going strong. Usually made with metal legs on the chairs and table, the tops today are a vinyl laminate with vinyl chair seats. These sets are generally available in bright colors such as red, yellow, or even black.
A breakfast nook by definition is a small space to eat small meals in. A breakfast nook, aka morning room, aka informal dining room, aka eat-in-kitchen surprisingly all mean different types of spaces you may be looking at. The breakfast nook is a small space in or near the kitchen typically with built-in seating such as benches with a long table, and windows facing east. A morning room is a small room off of the kitchen with eastern facing windows for the morning light. This space usually have comfortable chairs with a side table for holding cups of tea or coffee as one reads the morning paper. An informal dining room is off of the kitchen with a designated eating space or a half wall. The eat-in-kitchen is a small space for a bistro or cafe-style table or high-tops chairs at a breakfast bar.
