The last type of seating for the kitchen I would like to discuss is corner breakfast nook benches. The corner nook set will have an L shaped bench that fits against two walls. Instead of separate bench seats like when they are free standing or on either side of a table like a booth, these bench seats are all connected into one large L shaped piece of furniture. Corner nook sets have one advantage over other types of breakfast nook seating and that is that they provide storage. Nooks with storage are nook sets with corner bench seats with storage compartments under the seat or in the high back of the bench. The storage area under the seat can be used for any number of things but most popularly for small appliances and linens. The storage shelf in the back of the bench seat is usually a cabinet with a spice rack or a cabinet for thin items like cookie sheets and cutting boards.
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.
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.
