The style is probably the most important factor when it comes to finding the perfect modern kitchen nook set. Some decorators will give generalizations like you cannot use bench seating in a modern kitchen and that is simply not true. Benches can have a place in a modern nook if they are done right. The only general rule that applies universally to all modern furniture is that the lines and design need to be simple. The table and chairs will have simple straight legs rather than ornately carved ones. The tops of breakfast nook chairs and benches will be straight lines rather than arched ones.
There are many styles of dinette sets as well. One popular style, the drop leaf table, is an old favorite and is quite functional in a small space since the leaves can be put up and down as necessary to make a larger table. Often only having two chairs, this style is perfect for an area along a wall and adds country flair to your kitchen. For more country style with a bit more seating, consider a rectangular table with two chairs on one side, chairs on either end and a bench on the fourth side. Pedestal tables with chairs on casters are a good choice for areas with flooring that will allow the casters to roll easily. There are sets available that look like they could be folded up and stashed in the closet and ones with lots of metal and glass for a very modern accent to any small dining area.
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.
