Let’s talk about art for a second. If your breakfast nook isn’t next to a large window, that means you have empty wall space that needs filled. Think statement art and I promise you won’t regret it. One large piece will set the tone of your nook and make it a clean looking and pleasant space to spend your lazy Sunday mornings. (via 1, 2, 3)

Don’t have an empty corner to make a little breakfast nook? That’s okay. Use your dining room to make a giant one! Having such long cushioned benches is like saying “Everyone come to my house for brunch every Saturday from now till forever.” It’s the same concept as a breakfast nook but large enough to accommodate all your friends and family.

One of the best reasons to put a breakfast nook in your home is because you have kids. These spaces make great places for creativity with paint and homework and dinner with a messy little one. The benches allow small children to sit at the table safely and when they grow up, they’ll want to hang out, lounging on the seats, while you make dinner. Do you need another reason to have a breakfast nook in your home? (via 1, 2, 3)
