2017 is going to be the year of comfort. As homeowners are looking to make the home a more warm and inviting place, many are adding nooks to various parts of the home. These are small cozy places where family members can read, eat, and relax. The breakfast nook in particular is great for setting aside a small, comfortable area in the kitchen to enjoy a meal or a snack.
A Breakfast Nook is Multi-Functional
While many homeowners are opting for added comfort in the home, multi-purpose items are also highly coveted. And the breakfast nook is just that; it’s a great place for enjoying a quiet moment by yourself in the morning, having a family breakfast, or entertaining friends. Just like a kitchen island–or, indeed, the kitchen itself–a breakfast nook is a social hub that’s perfect for doing homework, playing cards, or sharing a few drinks.
There can never be enough storage in the kitchen. A well-designed breakfast nook can actually act as an extra storage space. Flip-top benches are a quaint touch that gives you the opportunity to store little-used kitchen appliances or board games for game night!
Easy to Decorate
Since breakfast nooks are so small, they are easy to decorate and keep maintained. You can choose a fabric for the benches or chairs that matches the color scheme of your kitchen. The tabletop portion of the nook can be built using a material that matches the existing countertops in your kitchen. Many homeowners choose to place breakfast nooks in corners that have windows, so your window treatments can also be utilized in the overall design of your nook.
Utilize Your Space
Since breakfast nooks are usually built in unused corners of the kitchen, you’ll be utilizing a previously unused space. This helps you to get more functionality out of your kitchen!
