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.
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.
