If you want to move up in the world, dinette sets featuring counter height tables and stools may be just what you're looking for. Performing double service, these tables can be used to add extra counter space in a small kitchen allowing the cook to create a gourmet meal in a tiny work space. Reset for eating, meals can then easily be served in the same area. Everyone will wonder how she does it! A trip to your local dining room furniture store will surely be an eye opener as you'll see aisle after aisle of functional and stylish dinette sets, suitable for almost any kitchen, breakfast nook or small porch. Big on attitude yet small in stature, they are designed to fit into a small area and yet perform like a champ.
There is another type of breakfast nook bench that you might consider if you need still more room at your breakfast table. When you use a furniture set with chairs or free standing benches, you need to leave a buffer of space between the edge of the table and any walls so that there is room to pull chairs and benches out away from the table when you sit or stand. If you push the benches you are using against a wall, then you do not have to leave as much space between the edge of the table and the wall. That means you can afford to have a slightly larger table and as a result accommodate more people at your kitchen nook table. This type of breakfast nook seating might be called a booth similar to something you would find in a restaurant.
If you are interested in being able to seat more people around your table and you do not have the kitchen nook space requirements to add more chairs, then you might consider bench seating. Free standing breakfast nook benches are similar to chairs in that they typically have four legs at the corners with perhaps a support leg or two in the center of a long bench. However, bench seats can accommodate more people than number of chairs they replace. Generally, you can fit one and a half people on a bench for every chair you replace. Kitchen bench seating is a great way to increase your seating capacity without making the table larger or squeezing in chairs uncomfortably.
