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.
A breakfast nook by definition is a small space to eat small meals in. A breakfast nook, aka morning room, aka informal dining room, aka eat-in-kitchen surprisingly all mean different types of spaces you may be looking at. The breakfast nook is a small space in or near the kitchen typically with built-in seating such as benches with a long table, and windows facing east. A morning room is a small room off of the kitchen with eastern facing windows for the morning light. This space usually have comfortable chairs with a side table for holding cups of tea or coffee as one reads the morning paper. An informal dining room is off of the kitchen with a designated eating space or a half wall. The eat-in-kitchen is a small space for a bistro or cafe-style table or high-tops chairs at a breakfast bar.
Another difference between these two types of dining furniture is that you will not find round or square dining tables very often. The formal dining table is almost exclusively rectangular. However, you will find many kitchen nooks with round or square tables because these rooms are generally smaller and sometimes oddly shaped. It is very common for a nook to be shaped like half of an octagon and stick out away from the house. Or, sometimes the nook is square and sticks out. The square nooks can house a square table or a rectangular one depending on how far you can extend your dining furniture into the kitchen. Finally, there are some materials that you would never find in a dining room that are especially nice for the kitchen. For example, a table top covered in tile. Tiles are extremely easy to clean up after meals because they will not absorb liquids like wood. If you have a table with a tile top, then it would never be used in the dining room since the dining table is almost always covered with a tablecloth and it would be silly to cover the easy to clean surface with something that needs to be washed.
