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.
The style is probably the most important factor when it comes to finding the perfect modern kitchen nook set. Some decorators will give generalizations like you cannot use bench seating in a modern kitchen and that is simply not true. Benches can have a place in a modern nook if they are done right. The only general rule that applies universally to all modern furniture is that the lines and design need to be simple. The table and chairs will have simple straight legs rather than ornately carved ones. The tops of breakfast nook chairs and benches will be straight lines rather than arched ones.
Due to their inherent functionality, dinette sets are available for all sorts of meal services. They are designed and are utilized for simple or quick breakfast service, or they can be more elaborate to accommodate large dinner parties and formal dining. The more popular styles of dinette set include contemporary designs that are fashioned from wood or steel. Wood also contributes to a country style and feeling. Retro styles and the 1950's are making a comeback as well, so dinette sets can be found in stainless steel or chrome models and are gaining popularity. They can also feature glass tabletops, either frosted, etched, or regular style glass. If space is limited, a dinette set can be found to accommodate; benches and side tables are often the choice to fill any small breakfast nook or kitchen corner in these sorts of space situations.
