How to create a breakfast nook


Even if your house doesn’t have a built-in breakfast nook, you can create the feeling of one by putting a table and chairs in a small corner of your kitchen or living room that doesn’t get much use.

A breakfast nook is a small, secluded dining space that’s set apart from the rest of your kitchen or living room.

It’s usually reserved for lighter meals and has a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere than a dining room.

Even if your house doesn’t have a built-in breakfast nook, you can create the feeling of one by putting a table and chairs in a small corner of your kitchen or living room that doesn’t get much use. Not only will you gain a cosy niche for eating, chatting and reading, but you’ll also be optimizing your living space by turning an awkward alcove into useable space.

For maximum seating and legroom, think about installing benches or banquettes along the walls and using a pedestal table instead of a regular table and chairs.

To make your breakfast nook more inviting, include a hanging lamp over the table and add pillows to the benches or chairs for a bit of colour and comfort.

Keep in mind that the best place for a breakfast nook is usually by a window: the view to the outdoors will prevent the space from feeling too cramped and keep your breakfast nook bathed in natural light during the day.
