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.
Wood and wood-style dinette sets are the most common. For the formal, a wooden dinette is much like an ordinary table set, with each part - table and chairs - made from natural wood and finished with a dark or light color. These are ideal for restaurants, particularly pubs, and homes looking for a dining set that is both durable and stylish. But, if your home or restaurant dining area anticipates many spills and messes, laminate wood is always an option. Laminate is a common material for dinettes at home and for restaurant looking for a wood-like appearance. Although wooden dinettes are common, contemporary style has a distinct sub-market in furniture. For dinette sets and dining furniture in general, this often means and entire set made from metal or a glass and metal combination. For dinettes, such sets are usually referred to as "bistro style," but any home or restaurant can have a bistro-style contemporary dinette. Often, these sets are versatile for indoor and outdoor use by having metal chairs and a table base, which is complemented by a solid glass table top. Additionally, the metal in many sets is designed in a number of patterns, such as a lattice-back for chairs.
Lighting is important in a nook area. Some nook areas look like an old pantry tucked away is a tiny room just off the kitchen, while others are open to the kitchen. In the tiny rooms, consider light, airy colors, track lighting or an antique chandelier. Also think about adding personal artwork to the space. If it is eastern facing, all the better to catch the morning sunlight, but the added electrical lighting will be nice on the gray and gloomy days. Consider other times of the day this space may be used. Homework time so the kids have a dedicated space to work in while being in close reach of a study-break snack, a reading area away from televisions, a place to draw or color, etc., then pick the appropriate lighting for those other needs.
