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.
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.
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.
