Breakfast Nook Ideas for Modern and Traditional Homes

We love waking to a nice breakfast in a space that encourages a fabulous vibe throughout the day. In this case, a breakfast nook is a perfect space to sit and relax as you enjoy your first day’s meal. The good thing is, you don’t need a big room to install one. On the contrary, you only need a small corner or space. Below are various ideas you can copy or take inspiration from.

Forge a Built-In Seating

Suppose you live in a rental where you have no much power to change how the house looks. You can create an illusion of a breakfast nook by adding two benches that create a 90-degree angle. Then, add a table and enough chairs to achieve the trick.

Go for a Rustic and Colorful Look

Your ideal breakfast nook should feel homely and relaxing. That’s why a colorful rustic look is vital as it encourages good moods and relieves stress. So get a long wooden bench and a table. Remember to add decorative flowers on the top of the table as flowers are known to improve your mood.

Also, look for a bright paint color to add to the corner you’re installing the breakfast nook. If the nook is away from the window, or if your room is dark, consider adding a pendant above the table to increase brightness. Also, add several bright cushions to make the area more comfortable and welcoming.

Add Color to Cohesion Space

Suppose your nook stand next to something you don’t want to change. It could be a beautiful wallpaper that you recently installed. Instead of bringing down the paper, you can add a similar color to that of the wallpaper to cohesion space.

Small and Cozy Nook

Having a small room shouldn’t stop you from having a nook. Find a window that lets in most light. Set a nook there and include rustic style. Cushion the seat to make it comfortable. However, you need to be more careful with a small space because you can end up cramping it instead of achieving a comfortable room. Be minimalist.

Turn Unused Corner into a Nook

You likely have an unused corner that can fit at least two people. So get a round table and two to three seats and turn the corner into a relaxing space. For your furniture, ensure it matches or blends in with the color on the wall. Ensure the color of your chairs match. If they don’t, paint them with a warm color. For example, you can paint a marigold that matches the sun. Also, hang a positive message on the wall.
