- What is a breakfast nook?
Breakfast nooks are small dining areas, typically located in or near the kitchen. Amish made, solid wood kitchen nooks often feature a square or rectangular table surrounded by bench seating. Modern breakfast nooks are used for a variety of different activities outside of eating breakfast each morning. They’re used for reading, playing board games, doing homework, working from home, arts and crafts, and more. While some nooks are nailed, bracketed, or directly built into the wall, this is not a defining characteristic.
- How much space is required to fit a breakfast nook?
A typical breakfast nook will seat 4-6 people. A minimum place setting is 24-27 inches wide, while ideally you would allow 30 inches. Freestanding breakfast nooks have a general footprint of approximately 5’ x 6’ consisting of a dining table and wraparound bench corner seating. Most breakfast nook tables have a standard 30-inch dining height with a square or rectangular top.
- What type of light is best over a breakfast nook?
While ideally your breakfast nook will receive plenty of indirect morning sunlight, you may also consider adding hanging lights to the dining ensemble. Hanging light fixtures, or pendant lights, are suspended below the ceiling by a wire, chain or rod. These popular light options can be configured at various heights with opaque or clear bulbs. Illuminating a breakfast nook with the right lighting choice can create any mood you wish for this space.
- How do I decorate a breakfast nook?
No matter what type of style you decide to go in, your breakfast nook should always be cozy and inviting. Don’t be afraid to allow natural light, and mix and match plenty of different hues with your decor. Adorn your bench seating with decorative pillows, and add a stunning centerpiece to accent the space. Define your breakfast nook area with statement curtains or pendant lighting. From classic mission to rustic farmhouse, kitchen nooks can be accented with your favorite design elements.
