Setting up a Breakfast Nook in 2022
We love a good breakfast nook, and this one is no exception. It’s country-chic and just a touch rustic but still polished, with a few modern updates. And it proves that you don’t need to have an actual built-in nook to achieve the right vibe—you can make your own!
This corner nook was created by taking advantage of the space between two windows and adding new molding along the wall, which then gets capped off with crown molding. This creates an instant nook that boasts plenty of storage space (you can see what we mean in the photo below).
The rest of the room is clean and bright thanks to white paint on all surfaces (including ceilings), with pops of color in furniture pieces and accents like vintage-style plates and wooden bowls filled with flowers or fruit on display.
We love how much attention has been paid to detail here: from the intricate trim work around windows (which adds visual interest without being too busy) to the simple yet elegant hand-painted art above mantelpiece.
Tips to Set Up A Breakfast Nook In 2022
Set a Budget
The first thing you want to do is set a budget. You should know how much money you have available to spend on your new breakfast nook, and then make sure that you stay within that budget. If you go over budget, you may end up spending more money than you need to, or not have enough money to buy everything that is needed for your kitchen renovation project.
Choose the Right Place for Your Breakfast Nook
Once you have set a budget and figured out how much money you can spend on your kitchen renovation project, it’s time to choose the right place in your home for the breakfast nook. You will want to choose a room that has plenty of natural light and is easy to get around without bumping into other furniture. A large dining area with high ceilings also works well because there will be plenty of room for people sitting at the table eating their meals.
Choose Your Furniture
The furniture you choose for your breakfast nook will make all the difference. A table and chairs will allow for more seating than just a table alone. If you have the space, consider adding a sofa or love seat with storage underneath to use as additional seating when needed.
If you want something more traditional, wood tables work well as there are many styles available from modern to classic. You can also go with natural materials like stone or marble if you prefer something more earthy and rustic looking.
Choose Your Lighting
Lighting is extremely important when setting up any room — especially one that contains food! Make sure that you have enough light sources so that you can see everything clearly without straining your eyes too much or causing glare on surfaces such as glass tabletops or countertops near where people will be seated while eating their meal.
