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.
Houses with a breakfast nook or eat-it-kitchen typically have a formal dining room area intended to take dinner or supper into, depending where you are from. To make the most of the space, bench seating is recommended with fold-up seats allowing extra storage in that space. When that area is not in use, you can create a comfortable sitting area with plush pillows. When the area is in use, simply put the pillows under the seating to allow more people around the table. Farm-style tables are making a big comeback. People are feeling more disconnected in this ultra-social-networking era, and want to visit with people face-to-face. The table needs to fit with the space, but also needs to be large enough to fit everyone's plates, utensils, platters of pancakes, eggs and bacon on.
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.
