Brilliant Breakfast Nook
If you have several family members, it is best to create a breakfast that can accommodate everyone. It doesn’t have to be a large nook. Sometimes what you need is no more than two benches with a long table in the middle.
As for the style, if you like a classic and timeless look, try the country style. While the breakfast nook is mostly white in the picture, you can just feel how comfortable and inviting it is. The feetless “hanging” table only makes it better.
Farmhouse Breakfast Nook
A farmhouse breakfast nook is also another example of breakfast nook ideas that has a classic and timeless look. Unlike the previous country style, the farmhouse style involves more color. The most commonly used colors are black, white, and gray.
Notice how the colors are used. The floor is black, the chairs white, and the table white and black. The contrast between these pieces of furniture makes them noticeable, especially when the sunlight hits them. Due to these colors, the nook has a warm vibe too.
Corner Breakfast Nook
Do you have unused corners? The corner is often left unused by many homeowners. This is understandable since it is difficult to deal with the corner’s L-shape. When designed properly, a corner can look great. A properly designed corner also means that there is no space left unused.
To create a corner breakfast nook, you will need an L-shaped bench. Then, to balance the rectangular shape and straight lines of the corner and the bench, you can add a round table in the middle. The balanced look prevents the nook from looking dull and boring.
Small Breakfast Nook
Having a small space should not stop you from creating your own breakfast nook. It is true that a small space limits your styling options but it doesn’t mean the nook can’t look good. A bit of creativity is needed to handle that.
In the picture above, the nook is quite small. And yet, it looks very comfortable and inviting. You just want to sit down and spend your time there.
The homeowner plays with colors but in a way that it doesn’t look too crowded. The décor is also minimal but still looks cozy. It is one of the best simple breakfast nook ideas.
Blue and White
Color playing can always make any space looks more noticeable and interesting. Of course, this also applies to breakfast nooks as well. For a breakfast nook, one of the best color combinations is blue and white.
The contrast between blue and white is not as sharp as black and white. Because of this, blue and white bring a calming and relaxing vibe.
What’s more is that natural light highlights the nook, making it even more noticeable and interesting. This is done intentionally. Notice the lack of curtains on the window.
