Create Your Own Cozy Breakfast Nook With These Decorating Ideas
There is nothing like the quaint charm of a kitchen nook. How do you make your own breakfast nook? All you need is a little bit of space in your kitchen where you can dedicate room for a small table, a couple of chairs and a few accessories to make it feel inviting and the perfect landing spot for coffee with a friend or to page through a good book. This lovely little spot is not restricted to breakfast hours. It’s a wonderful place to have a chat with a friend, or some solitary time in the afternoon to catch up on mail, or flip through magazines.
Breakfast Nook Tables
A small table for two is all you need. Pick a small pedestal table or a drop-leaf table so you can expand it when you need a little extra space. There are a variety of styles to choose from, so be sure to pick one that has the personality for this adorable new space that you will call your own.
Breakfast Room Decor
Two chairs are all you need, which means that you can dress them down or up as much as you want. Mix and match two completely different styles for an eclectic shabby chic look, or add dining chair covers in a floral print to make them feel extra special and unique from the rest of your space.
Breakfast Nook Lighting
Shed some light on your new kitchen nook with a hanging pendant lamp centered over your table. It will provide much-needed light and give this new nook area its own focus at the same time.
Add a Seasonal Touch
Show off the blooms of the season with a healthy dose of flowers. Fill a vase with fresh-cut stems or add a few potted geraniums on a nearby window ledge. Add a swag of floral garland along a window valance or a high shelf.
Fill Your Space
When space allows, be sure to include a storage shelf or a kitchen shelving that can hold all the essentials that you would like to have close by. Whether it’s cookbooks, a place to hold mail, or whatever inspires you, a pretty hutch or set of shelves will add the perfect touch.
Accent Your Space
A few small accents can add a nice touch. Think about vintage-inspired finds that can serve double duty, like a decorative pitcher that doubles as a vase. A small kitchen rug can help define your space beautifully as well.
