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.
Wood and wood-style dinette sets are the most common. For the formal, a wooden dinette is much like an ordinary table set, with each part - table and chairs - made from natural wood and finished with a dark or light color. These are ideal for restaurants, particularly pubs, and homes looking for a dining set that is both durable and stylish. But, if your home or restaurant dining area anticipates many spills and messes, laminate wood is always an option. Laminate is a common material for dinettes at home and for restaurant looking for a wood-like appearance. Although wooden dinettes are common, contemporary style has a distinct sub-market in furniture. For dinette sets and dining furniture in general, this often means and entire set made from metal or a glass and metal combination. For dinettes, such sets are usually referred to as "bistro style," but any home or restaurant can have a bistro-style contemporary dinette. Often, these sets are versatile for indoor and outdoor use by having metal chairs and a table base, which is complemented by a solid glass table top. Additionally, the metal in many sets is designed in a number of patterns, such as a lattice-back for chairs.
Another difference between these two types of dining furniture is that you will not find round or square dining tables very often. The formal dining table is almost exclusively rectangular. However, you will find many kitchen nooks with round or square tables because these rooms are generally smaller and sometimes oddly shaped. It is very common for a nook to be shaped like half of an octagon and stick out away from the house. Or, sometimes the nook is square and sticks out. The square nooks can house a square table or a rectangular one depending on how far you can extend your dining furniture into the kitchen. Finally, there are some materials that you would never find in a dining room that are especially nice for the kitchen. For example, a table top covered in tile. Tiles are extremely easy to clean up after meals because they will not absorb liquids like wood. If you have a table with a tile top, then it would never be used in the dining room since the dining table is almost always covered with a tablecloth and it would be silly to cover the easy to clean surface with something that needs to be washed.
