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.
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.
If you find the right combination of style, color, and materials, you can find a set of furniture for your nook area that is modern and beautiful. You do not have to shop at a fancy modern furniture store to find these items. You can find many different furniture sets on line that fit these parameters for much less money. The Soho Delfino nook set is one example of a modern kitchen nook furniture set that you can only find online. Be sure to read product and customer reviews before making any online purchase, though because you will not have the same opportunities to return the item once you assemble it.
