To take the step about materials a step further, you need to be careful about the color schemes that you choose in a modern kitchen nook. Floral patterns or patterns at all are not used in most modern kitchens. A home decorated in a modern style will use solid colors that are bright and contrasting. Two tone color schemes with one light and one dark color are most common. For example, black and white is classic. Another example would be a dark navy blue and a light cream color, or bright red and white. Whatever color scheme you decide upon for your modern breakfast nook, make sure it matches the rest of your kitchen.
A more unique version of a retro set is a style that looks like a soda shop booth. With a rectangular table sitting in the midst of chairs shaped to fit inside a corner and another bench for the outside seats, this one will add a huge amount of attitude to any dining area. Besides the retro sets with their bright primary colors, today's small table and chair sets are made of a variety of materials, including stained, painted or natural wood, tables with round or square glass tops, and sets featuring wrought iron and upholstery.
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.
