The breakfast nook is a room just off of the kitchen or a part of the kitchen where you place the kitchen table. This set of furniture is sometimes called the breakfast nook set. Dining furniture for the kitchen is often less formal than dining furniture for a dining room. As a result there are several different options when it comes to the kitchen nook seating arrangements. This article will discuss some of those options. Of course, most homeowners use a combination of more than one type of seating described here. The most obvious form of breakfast nook seating is chairs. Individual chairs are most commonly used in sets with a small kitchen table that sits two to four people. The smaller tables work better with chairs. The chairs for your kitchen table can be any style you can imagine. For small café style dining sets you might find iron rod chairs. For tall pub style tables, you might find tall stools. Alternatively, you might find traditional dining room furniture with carved wooden chairs with high backs.
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.
There are many styles of dinette sets as well. One popular style, the drop leaf table, is an old favorite and is quite functional in a small space since the leaves can be put up and down as necessary to make a larger table. Often only having two chairs, this style is perfect for an area along a wall and adds country flair to your kitchen. For more country style with a bit more seating, consider a rectangular table with two chairs on one side, chairs on either end and a bench on the fourth side. Pedestal tables with chairs on casters are a good choice for areas with flooring that will allow the casters to roll easily. There are sets available that look like they could be folded up and stashed in the closet and ones with lots of metal and glass for a very modern accent to any small dining area.
