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.
Pick fabrics and textures that welcome you to the space. If you have kids, this could be the space they do their homework in. Think about the cushions used and comfort level of the space for more than 15 minutes of sitting time. Add fresh flowers or small pots of plants, natural sunlight depending, to bring in green and freshness to the space. The morning is our chance to wake up on the right side of the bed. Create a warm, welcoming and refreshing space that will leave everyone in the family feeling good and ready to start their day.
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.
