Breakfast Nook Ideas

Let light in by ditching curtains.

Minimal window coverings keep this breakfast nook bright and sunny. Soft yellow cushions, pillows and painted chairs add to the room’s happy feel. The L-shape breakfast nook design makes the most of this kitchen’s nook and creates many extra places to sit.

Create a fresh take on vintage.

This sweet breakfast nook fits perfectly into a previously unused corner of the kitchen. A built-in bench wraps the corner, adding storage and lots of seating. Vintage-inspired furniture and light fixtures add a playful, casual vibe to the eating area.

Have a mismatched moment.

In this cottage breakfast nook, mismatched chairs and a table are unified with a coat of white paint and slipcovers sewn from drop cloths. The bench is a repurposed bifold door, painted in a crisp blue. Accessories complete this kitchen’s cozy breakfast nook.

Embrace a modern look.

A modern table-and-chairs set, pendant lighting and wall decor put a stylish spin on a traditional breakfast nook. Keeping the walls white in both this space and the kitchen creates a cohesive look and ties the rooms together.

Create a comfy niche.

Like many others, this breakfast nook takes advantage of windows that provide natural light and great views. Low, comfortable benches keep the breakfast nook casual and comfortable.

Little details make the difference.

The little details of this breakfast nook tie the room together. The patterns on the seat cushions and rug add style to the room. The black pendant light and white table and chairs provide contrast. These simple details complement each other and create a cohesive look. A nearby china hutch stores overflow from the kitchen, such as infrequently used linens and dishes.
