If your home is a more modern home with modern furnishings throughout, then you may be wondering how you are ever going to find furniture for your breakfast nook. Most furniture for this room is of a more traditional or country theme and it is sometimes hard to find kitchen nook sets that can fit into a modern kitchen. There are certain features to look for, though, that will help you find the right nook set for your modern living space. The materials of construction, the style of the table and breakfast nook seating, as well as the color schemes can all play a part in making your kitchen furniture look more modern.
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.
