Imagine a pot of brewing black coffee and a cosy “breakfast nook” to tuck into on a bright Sunday morning – that’s exactly the stuff food heaven is made of. If you’re not a morning person, this little ritual will definitely make you one!
Case in point: Eat breakfast of the champions the way God intended it with these 10 uber-cool “breakfast nooks” that you can create in no time at all. Are we talking about a vanilla dining room designing style that’s routine and familiar? Hell no! We’re inching towards a cosy spot that accommodates all your fetishes – food or interiors-wise and makes for a delightful “bed-and-breakfast” experience.
First things first, it’s imperative to understand the underlying “style” and “purpose” of the nook. To get the ball rolling, see if you’re leaning towards the “cosy & casual” or the “bold & modern” type. These are just two examples however there are way too many options for you to choose from, so let’s get going. Here are 10 breakfast nook ideas that’ll leave you awed and inspired:
1. Technicolor Designing, Vintage Look
A bold form of designing, this style incorporates pop colours and bright hues – typical of American kitchens in the 1960s and 70s. If you’re looking to add some colour to your subtle home, this nook – characterised with a burst of colours – is just what you need.
2. Whimsically, Yours
For all those who aren’t afraid to experiment and love a little bit of eccentricity, this style is your true calling. From string lights and boho rugs to eclectic art pieces and minimalistic sculptures, the world is your oyster!
3. Country Feels for the Classical Folks
If built-in seating is more your style, go for an informal country look-and-feel. You could add more character and depth to the space with printed cushions and textured throw pillows.
4. Brick Walls, FTW!
Our all-time favourite, this classic style never fails. If you’re the kind of person who loves a design style that’s vintage yet rustic – go for exposed brick walls and create a corner that’s Instagram gold if you ask us. Maybe it’s the warmth this space exudes or maybe it’s the rustic orange colour, whatever be the case, this homely corner will definitely become your favourite hangout space night or day!
5. Neutrals & Minimalistic
Never underestimate the power of off-whites and creams. They add a sense of warmth to your home space and make it more inviting. What’s more, this style is definitely more popular than the others so you’ll have plenty of choices when it comes to the furnishings and fixtures.
6. I Olive You
An offbeat choice, typically people tend to stay away from unique colours such as olive and bottle greens. But trust us when we say that white and olive is a combination you won’t regret. After all, with wooden flooring and the sunlight streaming in, you’ll experience nature in the comfort of your home.
7. All-Whites for a Light & Airy Feel
An all-white nook sits wonderfully in a home that’s intrinsically minimalistic in its design style and approach. Think of it as a white space that you can paint with your favourite decor and furnishings. From contemporary runners and rattan chairs to bold ottomans and vintage lights, everything will stand out and fit in – all at the same time!
8. Breakfast with a View with Bar Nooks
If you’re one of the lucky few who has an apartment overlooking the cityscape, a beach (oh yeah!) or even a large garden in the courtyard, try creating a Bar Nook with tall tables and stools. It not only saves on space but also adds an unparalleled cool quotient to your space.
9. A Textured Nook with Artsy Wallpapers
A quick fix to a dull space, opt for bold wallpapers – from geometric patterns to floral counterparts – and create a space that’s out and out unique. What’s more, if you get bored of the style, you can always opt for different wallpaper design and give it an instant makeover!
10. Pink/Blue Nook for a Small Breakfast Nook Set
Blush walls and pastel patterns appease to anyone and everyone. If you’re for a fresh start and a vibrant feel, go for the pink undertones. However, if you’re looking for a nook that can double up as a night-and-day corner or a formal yet informal space, we suggest you go with the blue breakfast nook set from Furlenco (as shown above).
