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.
The prime advantage of using a corner breakfast nook is that its benches are equipped with built-in storage facility under the seating area. This valuable storage space can be used for storing small kitchen appliances and kitchen linens. Also some bench backs have a pull out drawer in which you can store extra glassware. The kitchen nook is truly a multifunctional piece of furniture that offers full functionality with elegant look and optimum utilization of space. Kitchen nooks are available in variety of designs and patterns and are prepared from bamboo, wood, glass and metal. To give your kitchen a contemporary look, you can choose breakfast nook table made of metal and glass that gives stylish and elegant look. You can create a classic royal look and enhance your kitchen decor by incorporating plain or carved wooden tables. You can also set kitchen nook in your front or back porch, in a sun room or even in balcony, depending on your individual choice and style.
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.
