The breakfast nook is a room next to the kitchen meant for a dining table and chairs so that families have a convenient place to eat more informal meals. So what makes breakfast nook furniture different than dining room furniture? The truth is that there is not much difference. Some furniture stores do not have sections specifically for breakfast nook furniture; they just put all the tables and chairs in a category known as dining furniture. However, there are some conventions that many people use to classify a dining set as either kitchen furniture or dining room furniture. First, breakfast nook sets s are generally less ornate and are made of more common materials. Dining room sets will have ornately carved table legs and often come in dark woods like cherry. Breakfast nook sets have simple legs and designs and are more often made of woods like pine or even chrome and Formica. The general rule is that kitchen tables and chairs are less formal than the ones for the formal dining room.
Generally thought to be comprised of a small table and either two or four chairs, dinette sets are made to fit into a small kitchen or breakfast nook. Suitable for a quick lunch or breakfast for two to four people, they are very functional where space is at a premium. When thinking of dinette sets, your mind may immediately go to the style of dining table popular in the 50's and 60's. These are still out there and going strong. Usually made with metal legs on the chairs and table, the tops today are a vinyl laminate with vinyl chair seats. These sets are generally available in bright colors such as red, yellow, or even black.
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.
