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.
The breakfast nook is a room next to the kitchen meant for a dining table and chairs so that families have a convenient place to eat more informal meals. So what makes breakfast nook furniture different than dining room furniture? The truth is that there is not much difference. Some furniture stores do not have sections specifically for breakfast nook furniture; they just put all the tables and chairs in a category known as dining furniture. However, there are some conventions that many people use to classify a dining set as either kitchen furniture or dining room furniture. First, breakfast nook sets s are generally less ornate and are made of more common materials. Dining room sets will have ornately carved table legs and often come in dark woods like cherry. Breakfast nook sets have simple legs and designs and are more often made of woods like pine or even chrome and Formica. The general rule is that kitchen tables and chairs are less formal than the ones for the formal dining room.
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.
