All About Breakfast Nooks
A breakfast nook is a great addition to any home, giving you greater flexibility and functionality in your kitchen area. Depending on the design of your breakfast nook, you may or may not have a window seat. If you don't already have one, you should consider adding one in your next renovation project. A beautiful window seat gives you the chance to personalize your breakfast nook. Here's how to do it right.
Maximize Your Space
Breakfast nooks aren't known for being incredibly spacious, and a pedestal table can help you make the most of the space you do have. Because pedestal tables have a single leg in the center, there is plenty of legroom on all sides. This way, you can seat more people comfortably in your breakfast nook than with a traditional four-legged table, which is especially useful when you have guests visiting. It also makes it much easier to slide onto a bench-style seat.
Add a Splash of Color
Here at CushionWorld, we typically advise our clients to start with a neutral tone, especially for large areas, like bench seats. However, in a breakfast nook, you can play around with the color a bit more, keeping the vibe casual and relaxed. Choose accent cushions in vivid colors to draw attention to the space, especially if there is a large window in the area to make the colors pop. For window seats, be sure to take any curtains or other window treatments into consideration in your color scheme as well.
Consider Kids and Pets
You'll likely be using your breakfast nook a lot, so you want to ensure your cushion upholstery is up to the task. This is especially important if you have children or pets, as your upholstery will be under even more stress. Leather and microfiber materials are great for durability and easy cleaning. On the other hand, delicate fabrics like silk and chenille can tear easily under heavy use. Fabrics like velvet and suede are difficult to clean, so they are not ideal for dining areas either. We can help you select the most durable, yet comfortable, fabrics for your upholstery.
